10 off two balls! This time it is Sunil Sam. The first was a streaky four over the keeper's heads and the second was a six over long off. That went up a mile in the air but just had enough legs to clear the ropes.

Seven overs to go and Kanchi Veerans need 78 to win. They only have four wickets remaining and here comes M Ashwin.

...
M Ashwin was the hero with the bat towards the end. Can he do it with the ball as well?

What a start from Sivakumar. The right arm pacer has blown this game wide open in the space of six balls. Three runs and two wickets in that over.

VB Kanchi Veerans 57/3 after 7 overs
...
OUT! Mokit is caught behind. He doesn't think that he is out and he stands his ground but the umpire has raised the finger and he is out for a duck. Mokit Hariharan c Karthik S b Sivakumar 0 (2)

VB Kanchi Veerans 55/3 after 6.5 overs

VB Kanchi Veerans 54/2 after 6.1 overs

A power play that both sides will be relatively happy with. Kanchi crossed fifty with the loss of just one wicket and that one wicket off the penultimate ball of the power play means that Chepauk are still in with a chance.

VB Kanchi Veerans 54/1 after 6 overs
...
OUT! M Ashwin takes a good catch running back to get rid of Vishal Vaidhya. And finally Chepauk get the breakthrough they wanted off the penultimate ball of the power play. Vishal Vaidhya c Murugan Ashwin b Samruddh Bhat 24(18)

VB Kanchi Veerans 5/0 after 1 over

...
Will that be enough for Chepauk to win their first game in TNPL 2018? Join us again in 15 minutes to find out.
...
With nothing but pride on the line for the defending champions, Super Gillies needed to show intent if they were to end their run of five successive defeats. That is just what they did right from the first ball but lost the plot after the 11th over. S Karthik was dealing in only boundaries early and raced to his fifty off 27 balls. Captain Gopinath gave him good company before he was dismissed. When Karthik and Sasidev were dismissed in the space of three balls, the collapse began. In the end, thanks to Ashwin, they posted 180/5.
...
Ashwin finishes it with a six and the final over goes for 17 runs. This one goes over long on who was in with a chance till the last minute.

Super Gillies 180/5 after 20 overs
...
DROPPED! Another dropped catch. This time, it is another dolly but at long off. R Sanjay Yadav drops this one. What is happening out there?
...
Two drops in the space of three balls. Some stunning catches in the crowd but two drops for Arun at short third man. The first was followed by a collision and let Aarif off the hook while the second was a dolly that he didn't hang on to let Ashwin survive.
...
Sunil Sam's final over goes for plenty and that is thanks largely to Murugan Ashwin's twin sixes. And another great catch in the ground, this time it is a one-handed catch by the ball boy who was behind the square leg boundary.

Super Gillies 163/5 after 19 overs
...
SIX! Ashwin continues to be a bright spark for the Super Gillies. this was in his arc and he wasted no time in hitting that over long on. A good catch from a veshti-clad fan in the stands, who is over the moon after being shown on TV.

Super Gillies 153/5 after 18.1 overs
...
Excellent over from Divakar as he concedes just four singles from the 18th over. Aarif hasn't been able to connect with much so far and Ashwin continues to find the fielders.

Super Gillies 147/5 after 18 overs
...
10 came off that over from Aparajith and Murugan Ashwin continues to contribute with the bat for Chepauk.

Super Gillies 143/5 after 17 overs
...
SIX! New balls please. M Ashwin dances down the track and just clobbers one over long on and out of the ground. What a shot! That too against a bowler who picked up two wickets in his previous over.

Super Gillies 139/5 after 16.1 overs
...
OUT! Harish dances down and misses the ball, the bails are whipped off in a flash and he has to go. After an expensive start, Aushik finishes with two tight overs and a wicket off the last ball of his spell. Harish Kumar st S Chandrashekar b A Srinivas 3(4)

Super Gillies 133/5 after 16 overs
...
Five overs to go and with new batsmen at the crease, how much more can Chepauk add?
...
An excellent over from Aparajith, who gets rid of the two set batsmen and concedes just three singles. That is how you lead from the front.

Super Gillies 129/4 after 15 overs
...
OUT! Aparajith has two in three balls. A simple return catch this time as Sasidev can only pick out the bowler with his straight drive. Sasidev c and b Aparajith 11(14)

Super Gillies 129/4 after 14.5 overs
...
OUT! Karthik goes big after a couple of tight overs but is caught at deep mid-wicket. Aparajith gets the breakthrough as Francis Rokins takes a good catch near the ropes to get rid of the dangerous Karthik. S Karthik c Francis Rokins b Aparajith 76(44)

Super Gillies 128/3 after 14.3 overs
...
After two expensive overs, Aushik finally bowls a tidy over as his third goes for just five runs. But it would have been much better had K Deeban taken a tough chance to get rid of Sasidev, who is living a charmed life so far.

Super Gillies 126/2 after 14 overs
...
Excellent over of off-spin from the skipper. Just five singles came off it.

Super Gillies 121/2 after 13 overs
