Player of the Match
R Jadeja was given Man of the Match award for his splendid all-round performance.
D Warner: The bowling options are bleak for his team. He needs to have a good backup bowler if his regular bowlers end up being expensive.
M Dhoni: The shuffle in the batting order worked for CSK in this match. Dhoni being a masterful captain used his resources well in the field as well.
The first match of the second leg started well for CSK similar to the way they started well in the first match of the first leg. Whether they continue winning future matches is what needs to be seen. SRH clearly misses a genuine all-rounder in their team, they need to sort out this all-rounder problem soon.
