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

KKR in trouble.
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.
not getting a big one here! As Imran tahir strikes.
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.
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!
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
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.
162 runs to win off 120 balls

gets one as well!
the last over of the Powerplay and Faf Du Plessis wants to take the advantage
of it but forgets that he’s up against Mystery spinner Sunil Narine as Faf du
Plessis looks to go for a slog sweep and misses the line to have his stumps
disturbed. Ambati Rayudu is in. CSK 44/2
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.
you’ve done Rayudu?
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.
Rayudu in IPL 2019:
struck as he traps out Kedhar Jadhav. CSK falls back 81/4.
play from Suresh Raina and MS Dhoni balances CSK boat towards victory as CSK
42 off 30
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.
says 24 runs required off 12 balls
Gurney is going to bowl the pen-ultimate over for KKR
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.
8 runs off 6 balls
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.
Man of the match: Imran Tahir for his 4-fer
