Blistering start from Chris Lynn as KKR 34/0 after 4 overs

He has been brave enough but today is not a lucky day for him as he gets out for just a brace. Nitish Rana in. KKR 38/1

At the end of POWERPLAY – KKR 49 for 1.

Easy half century for Chris Lynn off just 36 balls and SHAH-RUKH KHAN is a happy man!

Hang-on here comes the wicket!

Similar to the Narine’s wicket as Rana holes out to Faf Du Plessis at long on off Imran Tahir. Robbie Uthappa comes in.

WICKET Imran Tahir and Faf du Plessis collab to get the wicket again for the second time in the 11th over. Robin Uthappa, looking to hit over the in-field on the legside gets a top edge and du Plessis takes a fine forward diving catch at long off. Gets out for a golden duck! KKR in trouble.

Oh boy! He can smash you outta park! As Chris Lynn hits 3 back-to-back sixes off Ravindra Jadeja. CSK is in for a big score until they removes Lynn off.

They’re not getting a big one here! As Imran tahir strikes.

Chris Lynn tries to slog sweep but finds Shardul Thakur at deep mid-wicket. Crucial strike. Third wicket for the leggie. In comes the Andre Russell.

Tahir gets RUSSELL straight away!

As he was trying to hit from ball one this times doesn’t connect well and long-on fielder takes an easy catch.

CSK is on a roll-out here!

Shardul Thakur bowls a slower ball which skipper Dinesh Karthik fails to pick and ball gets up in the air and Faf Du Plessis settles underneath and takes it comfortably.

KKR would be extremely unhappy as they have been able to put 161/8 on the board, barring Australian opener no-one came out to perform. MSD is a happy guy as his team has came back from Lynn’s storm. 4-fer from Imran Tahir and some very good catches from Faf Du Plessis helps CSK to an excellent effort to pull back KKR to a below par total.

This isn’t a tough chase considering CSK’s deep batting line-up. And There’s more in store for Ambati Rayudu as well as he comes in.

Ohh what you’ve done Rayudu?

Tomorrow’s the worldcup selection and Rayudu falls victim of the strategic time-out. How crucial is this for the fielding team as it changes the momentum everytime.

Chawla struck as he traps out Kedhar Jadhav. CSK falls back 81/4.

Aggressive play from Suresh Raina and MS Dhoni balances CSK boat towards victory as CSK now needs

42 off 30 balls.

WICKET Just when everything seemed to be a little easy for CSK, Sunil Narine jinxes MS Dhoni plumb. Very unconvincingly, the CSK skipper took a review and wasted it. Crucial strike. Even as the equation looks simple for CSK, KKR have entered their lower order. A couple of wickets from hereon can make the contest really interesting.

FIFTY for Suresh Raina as he has played a well-balanced innings today, keeping CSK in chase with a fine half-century. The job, however, isn’t complete as yet.

Equation says 24 runs required off 12 balls

Harry Gurney is going to bowl the pen-ultimate over for KKR

Ravindra Jadeja has milked Harry Gurney for 16 runs in this over and brought down the equation to 8 runs from the last over. Poor bowling by the left-arm pacer. He missed his lines and lengths and Jadeja took maximum advantage of that.

CSK needs 8 runs off 6 balls

CSK WIN!

just the typical and classy CSK chase as Jaddu finishes off things quickly and Raina played a fine innings off 42 balls. Losing streak of KKR has become continuous as this is their 3rd loss in a row.
