Chennai Super Kings won by 4 wickets

Jadeja is Man of the Match: "It was crucial for us to win this game. There was not enough time to think when I went in, I decided to see it and hit it. I tried to bowl slower in the air, which worked. I played few good shots for my team."

MS Dhoni: "We did not bat well, it is one area where we would like to be more consistent. They batted brilliantly first six overs, few wickets and run-outs brought us back. Bringing the spinners late helped us to rotate. People think it is a T20 game, you have to slog everything, it is not like that. There are two types of batsmen, one who don't think and go after everything, and others who plan and target bowlers. We want him [Jadeja] to be really comfortable in the dressing room. He is loving the part where we are calling him Sir, but it is the one from Hindi [meaning head] and not from English. I don't think he knows that."

Gautam Gambhir: "Some schoolboy errors to be honest. When you bat first, you cannot be 46 for 1 and then 91 for 8. The pitch gets better under lights. Both Senanayake and Narine did a fantastic job by taking it till the last over. We have not been professional enough and not been upto the mark. You cannot expect your bowlers to defend 119 on such a beautiful wicket."

Chennai Super Kings have beaten Knight Riders six times in ten matches. Three of those wins have come in Kolkata.

Sachithra Senanayake has picked up 50 wickets in 36 Twenty20 matches and has an economy rate of 6.05.

26th March 2010 was the last time Yusuf Pathan scored a half-century in the IPL.

Kolkata Knight Riders Playing XI: Gautam Gambhir (c), Jacques Kallis, Manoj Tiwary, Eoin Morgan, Yusuf Pathan, Debabrata Das (wk), Laxmi Shukla, Rajat Bhatia, Sunil Narine, Sachithra Senanayake, Lakshmipathy Balaji
