Presentation

Aaron Phangiso is surprisingly the Man of the Match ahead of Bodi and here is what he says: "It was a very nice wicket to bowl on. The ball came on nicely out of the hand. I enjoyed my bowling. The wicket was a bit slow so we had to make the batters play. It's always nice to bowl well, the confidence is high and I'm enjoying my bowling."

Alviro Petersen, the winning Lions' Skipper says: "We are delighted with the result. Halfway through the game, I thought we have 15 runs too many. Bodi and McKenzie were superb. The 2 young men finished it for us. We knew that if we could take it down to the last couple of overs, we were in the game. We did that magnificiently and always had the left hand - right hand combination in. The 10th-15th overs is a dead period, you just knock it around but Bodi hit a couple of sixes. We have to focus on one game at a time."

MS Dhoni, the losing CSK Captain says: "The way we batted, we got off to a very good start. We lost too many wickets in the middle overs which meant we couldn't slog. But 160 was a very good score. The timing of the two noballs turned out to be crucial. All these small things matter in this game. Hilfenhaus and Bollinger were bowling well so I gave them 3 overs initially. It's an uphill task from here. In the coming games we have to apply ourselves a bit more."
