Faf du Plessis was dismissed off the ultimate ball of the innings but the damage was already done as he engineered a busy 86 off 59 balls to help Chennai Super Kings post daunting numbers on the board. Moeen Ali complemented him wonderfully well with an explosive 37 off 20 balls, the hallmark of the cameo being his stand-and-deliver maximums. Chennai razed the economy of Lockie Ferguson as they coasted to 192/3, leaving the Kiwi pacer with figures of 56/0 in his four overs in the all-important final.
