Mahendra Singh Dhoni at Chennai Super Kings (CSK) team Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) recorded his 7th victory this season by beating the fifth wicket. In this season, Super Kings have tasted defeat for Kolkata for the second time in a row. Earlier, Chennai had defeated KKR in their home. Calcutta had challenged the CSK score of 162 runs here, which they managed to save with 2 balls remaining on Suresh Raina (58 *) and Ravindra Jadeja (31 *). For CSK, Imran Tahir (4/27) bowled strong, thanks to the KKR losing 8 wickets in just 20 overs and making only 161 runs. Tahir was adjudged Man of the Match for his fantastic game.
It did not seem to be easy for CSK to face CSK Openers 162 runs, but by the end of the Powerplay, KKR sent the pavilions to both of their openers and gave their intention to return to the match. Shane Watson (6) and Faf du Plessis (24) were quick dismissed. After this, Piyush Chawla also made the KKR strong in the match by giving two more jittles to CSK at the earliest. Chawla's strike on CSK's middle order.
Piyush Chawla hit Ambati Rayudu (5) in the 10th over to Robin Uthappa standing at short cover, then LBW out Kedar Jadhav (20) in the 12th over of the innings. This was the fourth blow to KKR at 81. Mahendra Singh Dhoni came here to handle the innings and as soon as he came, he started picking up the runs. Although Dhoni scored 13 runs in 13 balls with the help of 1 sixes, and he made his second victim, Sunil Narine made his second victim. Narine dismissed LBW to Dhoni.
