Chasing 150 for victory, CSK fell short by a solitary run when they needed two off the final ball bowled by Lasith Malinga. The Sri Lankan paceman trapped Shardul Thakur LBW to trigger wild celebrations among MI players and fans at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium. Batting first, MI posted a below par 149/8 in 20 overs and in reply CSK ended up with 148/7.
