Beasts battle: CSK vs KKR

  • Beasts battle: CSK vs KKR

While Dhoni was at his usual self and was hitting boundaries and sixes at will in his 25-ball 43 (with a four and four 6's), Jadeja could manage only one four and got out in the penultimate ball, leaving Bravo with no ball to face. Not only bowling, Narine made a quick 32 off 20 balls and was declared the player of the match. In the six balls he faced, he was bounced by Lungi Ngidi first up, before proceeding to smash him for back-to-back sixes, first over square leg, and then back down the ground. KKR 56/2, in chase of 178. Traveling to the Eden Gardens with their eyes set on their seventh win which would have not only seen them cement their spot at the top but also ensured their passage to the semi-final, the Chennai side which is otherwise known for its crystal-clear strategy surprisingly got it wrong on the day.

The Chennai Super Kings on the other hand have lesser issues to address. "This is what I discussed with DK (Karthik)", Gill said. Dhoni hit his trade-mark six off the last ball and helped CSK reach a respectable 177/5 in 20 overs.

It was then left to "captain cool" Dhoni to finish Chennai Super Kings' innings on a high after they scored just 31 runs in the five overs from 10-15.

Score after 5.1 overs, CSK 48-1, Faf du Plessis 27, Shane Watson 21*; Piyush Chawla 1/8, Mitchell Johnson 0/29.

The live streaming of Kolkata Knight Riders vs Chennai Super Kings will be broadcasted on Star Sports 1, Star Sports 1 HD, Star Sports Select 1 and Star Sports Select 1 HD in English Commentary. Both of them kept the run rate well over nine and at one point of time, it looked like they would end up scoring around 220 comfortably.




Weather: There are chances of rain in Kolkata but the drainage system is quite good, so there might not be a lot to worry about.

Chawla delivered with his first ball cleaning up the South African skipper with a googly, and after that Chennai Super Kings batsmen struggled against the Kolkata Knight Riders spin trio with Narine standing tall.

It was Jadeja's substandard performance with bat and ball and the southpaw's poor fielding that irked the fans who vented their ire on Twitter and criticised him.

Narine, who went wicketless in the last two games, removed in-form Ambati Rayudu (21; 17b 3x4 0x6) with a sharp offbreak that burst through the batsman's defence and rattled the stumps. Eyes on chris lynn, Suresh Raina, Russel and Kuldeep Yadav.
