Near yet so far for CSK * Punjab wins a thriller at Chepauk courtesy Raza Chennai, May 1:

Sikandar Raza shouldered Punjab Kings to 201 in a final-ball thriller against Chennai Super Kings at Chepauk in their Indian Premier League game on Sunday.
Devon Conway | Player of the Match: As I said at the innings break, we felt that it is a bit slow when you hit the wicket but to be fair it was a good wicket. We felt that 200 was a very competitive score. Disappointed that we lost that one. It is never easy. It is about keeping things simple, sticking to my process and not to complicate things. In T20s it can be up and down. I try to work as close as I can with Mike Hussey who is very experienced not only for Australia but also for CSK, he has played a lot of cricket here, along with the other players. I enjoy batting with Ruturaj and Ajinkya has got a lot of experience. When you build partnerships, it helps.
MS Dhoni | CSK captain: We need to be prepared as to what is to be done. The last few overs when we were batting, we could have gotten 10-15 more. Our bowling needed some cushion. The slower one did grip. Our batters have been putting runs consistently. I think 200 was par but we bowled two bad overs. We know the conditions well. We didn’t bowl well. You didn’t want to get hit to that side. You need to see what is the problem. The execution or the plan. Pathirana bowled really well. The first six overs we can do better. What lines to bowl.
Sikandar Raza: Everytime you win a match for your team it’s a good feeling. I was just looking at a lot of arms being raised in the dressing room (discussion with umpires before final ball). No idea. Maybe it was about retiring one of the guys. I don’t know. We said we were one boundary away from run a ball (in the final over), and if we can’t get that, we’ll run well. That over where Livi took charge and took 20 off one over, that changed momentum. When I went, I just wanted to run as hard as I can. I was trying to hit a six but wasn’t succeeding.
