CSK vs KXIP Live Score IPL 2013 45th Match Chennai vs Punjab Live
The last time the two Hussey brothers clashed in Punjab, Michael took the honours with a fine, unbeaten 86 and a much-deserved Man-of-the-Match. Much water has passed after Chennai decimated Punjab in the early days of the sixth edition. While MS Dhoni's men find themselves comfortably nestled at the top, Punjab have found it tough to come to grips with some consistency. Therefore when the two sides face off again at the M Chidmabram Stadium, sixth-placed Punjab would have their task cut out.

Chennai, with 16 points from 10 games, are all but through to the last four. The two-time champions have been on a roll and look good to maul a few more teams before the play-offs. MS Dhoni has led from the front while Michael Hussey, who retired from international cricket, has been brilliant. Chennai have been forced to try Wriddhiman Saha instead of the out-of-form Murali Vijay but the middle-order has delivered reasonably. The bowlers have done the job for Dhoni and while Dwayne Bravo has been expensive, he has been among the wickets. Mohit Sharma's wicket-taking skills have helped too.
After Adam Gilchrist finally decided to sit out, allowing Shaun Marsh to come in and David Hussey to take over the captaincy, Punjab looked like a more compact side. However, a rare strategic blemish saw Hussey bowling the last over of the innings against Mumbai when Rohit Sharma took plenty off him. Consequently, Punjab fell short by only four runs and the team was left ruing a poor decision by their skipper. However, they won't have much time to reflect on that when they come up against a red-hot Chennai.
