Chennai Super Kings Win: Table-toppers Chennai Super Kings (CSK) maintained their winning run with a victory against Eoin Morgan’s Kolkata Knight Riders at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi. Chennai Super Kings beat Kolkata Knight Riders by two wickets and again rise to top of the Indian Premier League 2021 points table.
The match went very interesting at the end when CSK needed just four from the last over but lost two wickets and could only manage three from the first five balls. Narine bowled superbly to take the game to the last ball, but Deepak Chahar kept his cool to get the winning run on the last ball. KKR’s winning streak comes to an end
After Morgan Ali won the toss and comes out to bat, wickets tumbled for KKR as they finished at 171/6 in their 20 overs.
Deepak Chahar stated with the new ball. Gill was on strike. Two slips in place. Gill off the mark with an easy single. Slips remain for Iyer, who drives to sweeper cover for a single. Shot. Gill dances down the pitch and hammers it past mid-off for his first four of the match. One slip has been taken out. And another boundary , this time through short extra – beautiful striking from Gill. Gill has been given out lbw. He reviews straightaway. No bat involved. Wickets missing. Gill survives. Gill is run-out next ball. A terrible mix-up between Iyer and Gill , Rayudu fires a direct-hit from short mid-wicket and Gill’s gone. KKR 10/1 in 1 Over.
KKR have finished well. 171 is a good total on this pitch. Dinesh Karthik’s delightful cameo played a big part in KKR getting to 171. This took some chasing from Chennai, especially against a potent KKR attack.
