“They had a couple of games in which they didn’t really do well but throughout the whole T20 tournament back home and the CLT20 qualifiers, the team played really well. This last game was a dead rubber but the boys enjoyed themselves and had a lot of fun.”
A half-century from Gary Ballance had looked like it would be good enough for Yorkshire to end the competition on a high. The 22 year-old made 58 from 38 balls, sharing a78-run partnership with Miller as Yorkshire closed on 140 for six.
Chennai’s reply started badly as Francois du Plessis, the fifth-highest run scorer in the competition to date, was caught off Steven Patterson in the second over with only a single to his name. Murali Vijay and Suresh Raina scored at just over a run a ball but were both snared by Oliver Hannon-Dalby.
The Indian Premier League runners-up turned up the heat on the Yorkshire bowling attack. Subramaniam Badrinath and M S Dhoni were determined to lead Chennai to their second victory in the competition and started to score runs quickly.
Badrinath cracked 47 from 38 balls before being bowled by Iain Wardlaw in the 16th over.
Dhoni had come in with Chennai on 74 for three and with the outcome of the match still in the balance. The India captain’s calm but quick-scoring 31 swung the game in favour of the Super Kings. He was bowled by Wardlaw as he tried to win the match in style, leaving it to Wriddhiman Saha to pick up the winning run off the next delivery, with six balls remaining.
