Sidelights:

Two different sets of 10 overs from RR cost them the match. In the first 10 they scored 84 for 1 and in the next 10 overs only 64 for 7 cost them the game. Although Tambe, Cooper and Bhatia kept them in the hunt by bowling tight line on a pitch which was tailor made for them, ultimately the CSK batting powerhouse was always going to win such games even when they had to score 12 runs from the final over. Till the kinds of Dhoni, Jadeja or Raina are there on the pitch 12 to 15 runs are not enough to pressurize them.
