Chennai: Pune Warriors batsman Robin Uthappa lauded the effort of the Chennai Super KIngs fielders which made the target of 143 look even bigger.
"CSK fielded out of their skin and credit must be given to them. When we batted, we lost two wickets - Pandey and myself in quick succession. That pushed us back pretty badly. We needed to build a partnership," rued the burly Karnataka batsman.
"Chennai Super Kings played exceedingly well and the 20 25 runs in the end overs was crucial for us. We batted badly but bowled and fielded well," he said.
