At the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai, Pune Warriors shocked the Super Kings by 24 runs. Chasing 160 to win, Chennai faltered in their batting, leaving their skipper MS Dhoni an unhappy man.

"This defeat has shocked us a little bit. We should have batted better, especially at the start of the chase. The wicket in Chennai slows down so we need to start well.

"Maybe this defeat is a blessing in disguise… it's a good wake-up call early in the tournament," said Dhoni at the post-match presentation. (Also see: Match in pics)
