Paul Valthaty's Century gave first Punjab its first win

When you are chasing a mammoth target of 189 in 120 balls, you need at least one person to step up and take charge hit massive runs. Paul Valthaty does the same and he smashed unbeaten 121 of 63 balls and also he grab the Orange cap as he is the leading run scorer in the tournament.

After loosing two quick wickets, Chennai Super Kings made tremendous come back in the game and posted mammoth 189 runs target before Punjab. For Chennai, M Vijay ans S Badri both made quick 50's vij made 74 and badri made 66 not out. Skipper MS Dhoni also played sensible knock of 43 off 20 balls.

After two quick jolts, Murali Vijay and S Badrinath consolidated Chennai innings brilliantly. Vijay struck fastest fifty of this season. Vijay and Badrinath added 124 runs for the fourth wicket partnership. Vijay made 74 runs off 43 balls.

Punjab medium pacer Praveen Kumar provided massive bow to Chennai after dismissing two batsmen in the very first two balls of the match. PK dismissed Srikanth Anirudha and Suresh Raina in the first two deliveries of his first over.

Good recover by Channai and made a massive total. Gilly and Paul Valthaty started well ... but gilly was not his useual form and you dont get a good performance from a person who was away from game for one year.

Hope DC play well tomorrow ... :-)
