That's all from our coverage of the first of two games on this Super Saturday. Do tune in to Sportskeeda for the live coverage of the highly anticipated clash between SRH and MI. Until then, good bye. 
CSK have masterminded a remarkable victory. When KL Rahul and Sarfaraz Khan mustered a century-run stand, it looked like KXIP will go for a flourish in the end, especially with new boy Kuggeleijn remaining with two overs. 
But MS Dhoni plotted a genius, as he removed both the set batsman and from there on, there was no way for KXIP, who lost their second match of the season by 22 runs.
They leaked 44 runs in their final three overs as well. Should they have pulled things back a little more, or attacked the spinners a little more with most of the batting yet to come? 
CSK meanwhile, are on the pinnacle again. They are a champion side, and once again in the IPL, MS Dhoni and co. will take some stopping. 
Over 20 KXIP: 138/5(RR 6.90) Bowler: S Kuggeleijn Summary: 2 . . W 1 . |
19.6 Scott Kuggeleijn to Sam Curran. Length ball, down leg side backing away Slog, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Dhoni.
19.5 Scott Kuggeleijn to Mandeep Singh. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot driving, to long off for 1 run, fielded by Rayudu.
CSK are going top of the table again. They love it there. 
19.4 OUT! Caught. Scott Kuggeleijn to Sarfaraz Khan. Off cutter length ball, outside off stump on the front foot Slog, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to long on, by du Plessis.
19.3 Scott Kuggeleijn to Sarfaraz Khan. Back of a length, outside off stump backing away Scoop, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Dhoni.
19.2 Scott Kuggeleijn to Sarfaraz Khan. Off cutter short, outside off stump on the back foot hooking, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Dhoni.
This is proving to be another MS Dhoni masterclass. From the field setting to the way he's used his pace bowlers in the death, he's been spot on. 
What a genius of a man he is. Take a bow, MS Dhoni.
19.1 Scott Kuggeleijn to Sarfaraz Khan. Off cutter short, outside off stump on the front foot pulling, mis-timed in the air under control to deep mid wicket for 2 runs, fielded by Jadeja.
Over 19 KXIP: 135/4(RR 7.11) Bowler: D Chahar Summary: 1nb 1nb 1 1 1 1 1 W |
18.6 OUT! Bowled. Deepak Chahar to David Miller. Length ball, down leg side backing away Slog, missed to.
And Miller's gone. What an end to what was expected to be a horrendous over for CSK. Chahar has probably done it for CSK. 
This has been a sensational comeback from Chahar! 
He has finally bowled a more conventional slower ball. KXIP have totally lost their way here. 
18.5 Deepak Chahar to Sarfaraz Khan. Off cutter short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, top edge in the air uncontrolled to fine leg for 1 run, fielded by Kuggeleijn.
18.4 Deepak Chahar to David Miller. Off cutter back of a length, middle stump on the back foot cutting, mis-timed to long off for 1 run, fielded by du Plessis.
18.3 Deepak Chahar to Sarfaraz Khan. Off cutter back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, in the air under control to deep mid wicket for 1 run, fielded by Tahir.
18.2 Deepak Chahar to David Miller. Yorker, off stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed to long off for 1 run, fielded by du Plessis.
18.1 FREE HIT. Deepak Chahar to Sarfaraz Khan. Yorker, middle stump on the back foot flick, inside edge to wicketkeeper for 1 run, fielded by Dhoni.
18.1 FREE HIT. No ball Deepak Chahar to Sarfaraz Khan. Slower ball beamer, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, outside edge in the air under control to third man for 1 run, fielded by Watson, fielded by Tahir.
18.1 FOUR! Deepak Chahar to Sarfaraz Khan. Slower ball beamer, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, well timed in the air under control to deep backward point for 1 run.
Over 18 KXIP: 122/3(RR 6.78) Bowler: S Kuggeleijn Summary: 1 1 W 1 4 . |
17.6 Scott Kuggeleijn to David Miller. Length ball, off stump moves in front Slog, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Dhoni.
That's a much needed boundary from David Miller, but KXIP might have left it too late. We need an Andre Russell here, perhaps. 
17.5 FOUR! Scott Kuggeleijn to David Miller. Off cutter half volley, middle stump on the front foot driving, well timed past long off for 4 runs.
17.4 Scott Kuggeleijn to Sarfaraz Khan. Off cutter length ball, middle stump on the back foot flick, to deep backward square leg for 1 run, fielded by Jadhav.
17.3 OUT! Caught. Scott Kuggeleijn to Lokesh Rahul. Off cutter short, outside off stump backing away pulling, top edge in the air uncontrolled to deep mid wicket, by Jadeja. Kuggeleijn's first IPL wicket and an important one. Runs have to be scored quickly and he has read the situation perfectly. Banging the ball in at no pace and Rahul is unable to generate the power needed to clear the rope.
17.2 Scott Kuggeleijn to Sarfaraz Khan. Off cutter short, outside off stump on the front foot pulling, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to mid off for 1 run, fielded by Rayudu.
He's mixing it up really well. It might be predictable, but with no pace on the ball, Kuggeleijn is making the batsman exert more muscle.
