After RCB’s victory in the afternoon game and Kolkata’s victory in KKR vs CSK game, the points table has become all the more conflicted. With IPL nearing its concluding phase, no team has officially qualified yet. A victory for Chennai Super Kings last night in the KKR vs CSK clash could have let the 4 time champions inch closer to the playoffs with the number 1 position. However, the Knight Riders were not ready to give up their hopes yet. The Chennai clash between the two sides saw Kolkata Knight Riders win the game by 6 wickets.

Willingly making a choice to bat first in the KKR vs CSK clash, the home team managed to put forth a target of 145 runs. The falling of wickets at regular intervals made it difficult for the batting team to set the tone for scoring runs. Shivam Dube was the top scorer for his team with 48 runs. Varun Chakravarthy who has been in good touch for the Kolkata team once again provided team with an early breakthrough in the KKR vs DC match.

Coming out to chase the 145 runs target in the KKR vs CSK clash, the visitors were 3 wickets down for 33 runs. It was indeed a difficult wicket to bat on but captain Nitish Rana alongside Rinku Singh stood strong making crucial runs for the team. In the ongoing IPL, Rinku Singh has emerged as the knight in shining armor for his team. Keeping up with the consistency, both Nitish Rana and Rinku Singh scored 57 runs and 54 runs respectively in the KKR vs CSK game.

“One of those days when you win the toss and bat first and the moment the first ball was bowled in the second innings, you realise it is a 180 wicket. Batting first I don’t think we could have got anywhere close to 180. I think the dew made a big difference. There was a lot more purchase for the spinners in the first innings and that’s what really got to us. As I said, you win the toss and you bowl first and you realize there is no dew in the second innings. They tried their best, but the conditions had a big impact on the game,” MS Dhoni said after the KKR vs CSK loss.
