Chennai Super Kings started their chase of 137, gave a magnificient start to open the innings. Opening wicket partnership was 65 runs where almost half of the runs had been scored. Everything seems to be working well on CSK side, but it all went when Hayden (33) & Parthiv patel (57). Finally there was a situation for CSK needed just 1 run to win from 2 balls, but Pathan bowled brilliantly & took ashwin's wicket therefore levelling the score.

Finally there was a super over in this IPL, where i was so happy to watch it. I guess almost all would have were eager to watch the super over. CSK played their super over & scored 9 runs in 5 deliveries, the stat was 1 W 2 6 W. They din't play last ball as they had lost their 2 wickets.

Finally Yuvaraj Singh finished the match with a 4, stat was 6 W 0 4.Hence Kings XI Punjab marked their first victory in IPL-3.
