Chennai win the Second Semifinal by nine wickets

Chennai Super kings won the second IPL semifinals by nine wickets at Mumbai tonight.

Chennai Super Kings went through to the IPL Finals after defeating the Punjab Kings' XI easily in the Second IPL Semifinal by 9 wickets.

The Punjab team and their owner Priety Zinta looked really dejected, the usual pep was missing altogether.

Punjab Team did not perform at all and gave no fight in the match. Their batting collapsed and their bowlers could not make a match of it. CSKs had beaten the Punjab team in the league matches also.

The CSK had hundred up on the scoreboard in the fourteenth over at the loss of only one wicket. They were scoring with ease, with no pressure from the Punjab bowlers.

Both Parthiv Patel and Raina scored a fifty each in their partnership of 102 runs off 75 balls for Chennai.

Raina scored his fifty in 32 balls with three fours and four sixes.

Now Chennai Super Kings will be facing Jaipur Royals in the IPL Final tommorow
