Won by Fire Falcons and decided to Bat First
Chennai won a close game
Srikanth Seshadri

This was a see-saw of a match.
FireFalcons (FF) losing wickets in a bunch in the first innings, before Ritesh and Muneer consolidate to get them to a respectable 25+ for 5.
Chennai bowled with a lot of pace, line and length. It was only due to Ritesh's timely hits that FF could even manage those runs.
Srikant was a pick of the bowlers, taking a couple of wickets and giving away next to nothing.
.
Chennai started well in the second innings, scoring freely and picking up the gaps at will.
Krishnan and Arun had a good left right combination that sure made it hard for the bowlers to adjust.
Arun finding the boundary every time there were a sequence of dot balls.
Chennai raked up 50+ in the second innings, but not before FF managed to pick up a few important wickets, especially of the set batsman Arun on the last ball of the 10th.
.
And then, Ritesh shifted gears in the 3rd innings. Cleaning the boundary with ease, running the hard 2's.
Muneer too provided a vital hand in the key partnership.
The key was the timing of the batting powerplay - it certainly shifted the momentum.
FF finished strong with a good last over flourish by Abdul - getting to a total of 101.
.
Chennai's task was cut - they needed about 45+ in 10, with a batsmen still to come.
And then they lost a couple of batsmen to some intelligent bowling.
The run rate was hovering near run-a-ball, but chennai knew a boundary here or there and it could be over.
FF bowled with a lot of venom and discipline, building up a string of dot-balls.
But it was Srikanth who kept the scoreboard ticking with some smart batting, not letting the scoreboard pressure build.
At the end of the 19th, Chennai needed 9 off 6.
Srikanth found the all important big hit clearing the 3 ball for a six and sealing the match.
.
.
Ritesh had played a gem of an innings, a fifty at that, as he held the FF batting together. He timed his hits, kept the scorecard ticking and stayed for most of the innings.
However, we decided Srikanth as the player of the match for his all-round performance.
His tight bowling and his all important partnership in the end was the difference.
.
(maybe we can introduce a new category ,like a star performer, to recognize a performance like Ritesh's.or shared P-o-M.)

Sadananda.. i don't know about creating a new category for star performer, but we surely need to consider an award for a brilliant PoM report
