Match scorecard

Yorkshire ended their Champions League T20 campaign with a four-wicket defeat by Indian Premier League side Chennai Super Kings in South Africa.

The Tykes, whose hopes of reaching the semi-finals had already ended after two losses in their first three group matches, made 140-6 off their 20 overs.

Gary Ballance hit five sixes in his score of 58, which came off 38 balls.

But Subramaniam Badrinath (47), Suresh Raina (31) and Mahendra Dhoni (31) guided Chennai to 141-6 off 19 overs.

Steven Patterson (2-22), Iain Wardlaw (2-23) and Oliver Hannon-Dalby (2-23) all took two wickets apiece for Yorkshire but it was not enough.

Yorkshire, who finished runners-up in the FL t20, won two qualifying matches in South Africa to reach the main Champions League competition, but then failed to win any of their Group B games, with three defeats and one no result.
