Michael Hussey is the Man of the Match for his unbeaten 54 of 48 balls.

MS Dhoni: I think it was a great performance. The spinners were superb, with all the dew around. Overall, it was a good show. We were a bitdisappointed to have not restricted them to around 110-120, but we knew we had the batting to chase down the score. Hussey and Vijay were outstanding at the top of the order. Our spinners were good. Ashwin has all the variations, Jadeja will learn a lot as he he plays more matches. Raina knows his limitations. We know we can improve further, it is always difficult to bowl with a wet ball. It is nice to play in front of the Ranchi crowd. Everybody wants me to finish off the matche with a six. It is always nice to be back in your home city, we will be back in a few days for an ODI against Australia.

James Hopes: We got off to a pretty good start only to lose our way in the middle overs. Once again, the batting let us down. It was a beautiful batting track, we let ourselves down. We will take some learning curve from the tournament. It was valuable experience for some of the younger guys in the team and they will only learn from this exposure.
Chennai won the match by 8 wickets with 25 balls to spare.Chennai qualify for the semis after their 3rd clinical victory and Brisbane are knocked out of the main draw of the tournament.
