Captain Cool does it again :-)

Dhoni's decision to bat on a testing pitch was prompted by his faith in the top order to handle the conditions. But despite the loss of 3 early wickets Dhoni and Badrinath's partnership of 52 was a key to take them to 142.Dhoni's trick of bowling the 3 spinners in the team - youngsters R Ashwin and Shadab Jakati and veteran off-spin great Muttiah Muralitharan paid off. All three bowled beautifully, giving away little and picking up wickets regularly as the Chargers were left in a spin. The fielding was just brilliant. The field placement just right.

It was indeed a great moment for all the Chennai Super Kings fans as Chennai storm into the finals of the IPL Season 3 against the Mumbai Indians. Although the CSK could manage just 142 runs they managed to achieve a comprehensive victory by 38runs. It was the lowest total successfully defended in this IPL season. Doug Bollinger was the star of the match taking 4 wickets in his spell of 4 overs. But the credit surely has to go the Lion himself, MSD for playing all his cards right to defend such a meager total.

Looking forward to the clash between MSD and the Little Master who has said he will be playing in the finals of the IPL season 3. Can CSK win the cup for the first time? With MS Dhoni in our team I surely think they can.
