CSK Beats Warriors 

It was a do or die affair for Chennai Super Kings and they proved that they are the champs! They not just defeated Warriors but also reached the top spot of their group, thanks to their superior Net Run Rate. Also Warriors managed to cross the score of 109 which was required to confirm a semis berth for them. This implies that both CSK and Warriors are through to semis with RCB and South Australia Redbacks from the other group.

Here is an overview of the match. CSK won the toss and elected to bat first. Good start by Michael Hussey (50) and Murali Vijay (35) wasn't well capitalised by rest of the batsmen as they could just managed 136 runs in their quota of 20 overs. Kreusch from the Warriors bowled an exceptional spell of 4 overs giving away just 19 runs and clinching wickets. Dhoni anchored the inning quite well scoring 31 runs.

Warriors had a target of 109 atleast to qualify to the semis. Jacobs played well again with a brilliant 32. Kreusch and Boucher contributed 25 runs each. Warriors could manage 126 runs in 20 overs losing 8 wickets. Ashwin claimed 3 wicket in 4 overs giving away just 24 runs.
