Jadeja lives up to his billing

Thanks to a late assault by Chennai Super Kings, Deccan Chargers batsmen had a mountain to climb, and their bowlers left to sulk a dismal outing where Super Kings struck more sixes than fours. Somshuvra Laha reports. Scorecard

Million dollar boy Jadeja starting to show his worth

It took Ravindra Jadeja just two matches in the IPL to show why he could be worth a fortune. To Chennai Super Kings, he's worth two million dollars plus, in a move many considered bloated and risky. But Jadeja insists he will deliver the best his talent allows him.

Southern giants looking to weather the storm in key clash

Travel fatigue was going to keep both Chennai and Bangalore away from training anyway, the tsunami alert made sure nothing changed. Kaushik Chatterji reports.

Disappointing loss but there is no need to panic

It was a disappointing loss for us at Delhi. Going into the match we were confident on the back of our win over Deccan Chargers. Stephen Fleming writes.

Quality all-rounders give Dhoni multiple options

We are still getting over the win against the Royal Challengers Bangalore. But we cannot celebrate for long because we have a game today against the Pune Warriors. Stephen Fleming writes.

Ben did nothing wrong: Albie

Finishing trouble for the holders

Till a year back, Suresh Raina was an option to fill the boots of ageing seniors in the Test team. Now, things have changed so much that Raina was not even picked for next month's A team tour of the West Indies. Khurram Habib reports. Face off

Win against the Royals will help us get our season back on track

We came so close against the Mumbai Indians but the manner in which we lost was heartbreaking. Stephen Fleming writes.

CSK hold steady to down Royals

For a moment, it seemed surreal — 'Mr Perfect' Rahul Dravid getting caught off an ugly cross-batted shot and his young apprentice, Ajinkya Rahane, impressive so far with his correct strokeplay, trying to hit the ball senselessly. Creating such indiscretions in the opposition ranks has made MS Dhoni the man with a Midas touch, which was on display on Thursday as CSK recorded a four-wicket win. Khurram Habib reports. Scorecard
