Watch cricket highlights – Punjab Kings XI vs Chennai Super Kings from IPL 2009.

Scoreline: Chennai 185/3 (18 overs rain curtailed game): Matthew Hayden 89 (58), MS Dhoni 56 (27), Suresh Raina 32 (20)
Mohali Kings: 174/3 – Yuvraj Singh 58 (36), Simon Katich 50 (25), Mahela Jayawardene 44 (25) – Suresh Raina 2-8-0

Hayden: It was a lot of fun. I had a bit of luck. Supported incredibly by MS (Dhoni). It was a bit of a shaky win. At this stage of the tournament we need to lift our fielding. Its a great sign that MS (Dhoni) is starting to hit his straps and we’ve got good support at the top of oder but we really do need to pick up our fielding. 

Dhoni: Frankly speaking, we’re not upto the mark. At the end Raina bowled a couple of good overs. We’re repeating the same mistakes and its dropping catches. At ths level you cant afford to do that. He’s (Hayden) brilliant, hes enjoying his cricket, he knows his strengths, its really good to have him in the side. He’s given us the kind of starts we need. 

Yuvraj: Couldnt hit it in the last overs. Especially the death overs, we’re going for too many runs. We batted well in this game but we need to look into our feidling and bowling, we dropped too many catches. We need to win 100% games now. I need to brush up as well (on my batting) 

Matthew Hayden is the Man of the Match for his superb knock
