Toss : Chennai Super kings won the toss and decided to bowl first
After sending to bat by MS Dhoni, Kolkata Knight Riders were very disappointed throughout the innings. From the beginning, there were problems for the KKR batsmen. Sunil Narine experiment failed this time as he became the victim of Harbhajan Singh along with Chris Lynn who was dismissed by Deepak Chahar. They both dismissed early. It does not stop after them the entire KKR batting suffer and they have lost all the momentum and finish with 108 runs in their 20 overs.
It was again Andre Russell who guided them to the 3 figure mark as he again scored a half-century and remain unbeaten on 50 off 44 balls. Deepak Chahar was the man who led their downfall and made it very difficult for their batsmen.
Kolkata Knight Riders Score : 108-9 in 20 overs.
In reply to Kolkata Knight Riders 108, Chennai Super Kings batsmen were looking very comfortable on the pitch. They have a modest total to chase. They have chased it down easily, Faf Du Plessis remains not out on 43 till the end. Shane Watson was looking in explosive form as he gave them a quick start again. Suresh Raina again fails to show an impact to the selectors and dismissed on 14 runs and almost losing his spot to the world cup as well. Ambati Rayudu, however, looking consolidated but eventually dismissed in 21 runs and CSK finishes the match on high with 7 wickets to spare.
