*IPL🏆: Indomitable CSK🦁 Pull Off Yet Another Heist💪*
🔰 Kolkata Knight Riders 202/6 lost to Chennai Super Kings 205/5 (19.5/20 ov)
Chennai Super Kings marked the return of IPL to the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai in spectacular fashion as they handed a gut-wrenching five-wicket loss to Kolkata Knight Riders.
The MS Dhoni-led franchise chased down a mammoth 202/6, posted by KKR on the back of Andre Russell’s 88 off 36 balls, with a ball to spare.
After choosing to field, CSK were rocked by a quick start by KKR but pulled things back quite nicely to leave them reeling at 89/5. But a calculated assault from Russell which included an unbelievable 11 sixes meant the score would go over the psychological 200-run mark.
However, CSK came out with intent as Shane Watson (42) and Ambati Rayudu (39) got them off to a flyer, scoring 75 runs in the powerplay. But they lost their way once the openers fell and it was Sam Billings’ enterprising innings (56, 23 balls) that swung the game CSK’s way. Even then, they had a lot to do with 17 runs required off the final over bowled by Vinay Kumar.
But the Karnataka pacer lost his nerve, delivering a waist-high full toss (called a no-ball) which was carted for a six by Bravo in the very first ball. That set the tone as Jadeja finished things off with another six and ensure the trend of teams batting second winning in this year’s IPL continued.
