Sai Sudharsan And Vijay Shankar also chipped with valuable contributions of 22 and 27 as the Titans chased down the target with 4 balls to spare.

“We were a bit short. Another 15-20 runs would have been good. We could have hit well in the middle overs instead of trying to muscle the ball. Rutu is a joy to watch. We can’t afford to bowl no-balls. We have that in our own hands’ said CSK skipper MS Dhoni after the match.
