Chennai super kings gone IPL 5th final

The West Indian batsman D Smith (68 off 28) had smashed 6 fours and 5 sixes, and was menacing to chase down Chennai first innings total of 192/1 from 20 overs. Time for Ravindra Jadeja to enter the scene, as Raina got his hands around the ball. After that it was just a question of chipping away.
Ravindra Jadeja trapped Dinesh Karthik leg-before-wicket, and when Rohit Sharma choked by going in the air, Mumbai were going to be in big trouble. 101/4. Kieron Pollard smashed 24, a knock that built-in 2 sixes in a row off Jadeja, before the left-armer sent one at the feet, and Pollard flicked the ball straight to Hussey at short very well leg.
Dwayne Bravo then emulates his mate, by picking up3 wickets, and got the purple cap. Mohit Sharma got rid of No.10 Pragyan Ojha to give Chennai super kings win by 48 runs in the 1st qualifier, gone them into their 5th IPL final.
