Chennai Vs kolkata Match Report

An impressive all-round bowling effort helped KKR to restrict CSK to a total of 131/5 before crucial innings from Ajinkya Rahane and Shreyas Iyer made it a convincing chase for KKR with one over to spare.

Chasing a target of 132, KKR openers – Venkatesh Iyer and Ajinkya Rahane – got off to a watchful start, scoring 15 in the first three overs.

CSK bounced back by picking two wickets in quick succession. Bravo scalped his second wicket in form of the dangerous-looking Rana and Santner dismissed the well-set Rahane, who was dismissed for 44.

KKR were 98/3 at the end of 14 overs with the asking rate less than six and two new batsmen at the crease – Sam Billings and KKR’s new skipper, Shreyas Iyer.

Both Billings and captain Iyer scored steadily, playing risk-free cricket and kept mounting the pressure. With KKR needing less than 10 runs to cross the finish line, CSK brought Bravo back into the attack and the right-arm pacer picked his third wicket of the match to dismiss Billings.

KKR skipper then finished things off with a boundary as his side successfully chased down the target with an over to spare.
