Qualifier 1, Mumbai

Another brilliant IPL finish. CSK have booked themselves a spot in Sunday's Final, while for SRH, they've now got to regroup and go again on Friday against the winner of KKR v RR. Who will they face? I have given up trying to predict this tournament, so just make sure you join us tomorrow!

MoM: Faf du Plessis

Dhoni: "I'm always happy whenever we win a game. If we had lost this game, we would have still had another chance. I think both sides bowled really well. There was a bit in the pitch for the pacers. We lost quick wickets, which put the middle order under pressure. It all happens in the Knockout stages. The win is important, but it's more important about what we learned. These are the best combinations we've got with the ball. I've been trying to use Bravo in a different way. We will get hit at some time. The bowlers will have to set up in one more game. Faf's experience showed. He's had no continuity, but he's come good. He has been brilliant tonight. We have always been a very good team, and it reflects in the IPL history. The support staff play a big part. We are enjoying the way we are. Credit goes to the management, the support staff and the players."

Williamson: "A trip to Kolkata should be interesting. It was a good game of cricket. It was a decent surface and we should have got 20 more. The bowlers were outstanding. We've got to do some hard work in Kolkata and try and get across the line. We certainly back our death bowlers. Most times, we'd defend that total. Credit to the lower of CSK. It's important we learn a little bit from this. Faf played a beautiful knock."
