Alright then, CSK move to the top of the table. KKR next face DC on Friday while CSK play RR in a couple of days. That's it from us for this game. Hope you enjoyed our live coverage. Do join us back tomorrow as MI face KXIP. Until then, it's a good bye from us! 
Deepak Chahar (Man of the Match): I knew we were going to play a lot of games in Chennai and that's why I started practicing the yorkers and slower balls. I play a lot of games like TT with MS Dhoni and try to learn a lot.  
MS Dhoni: I've been here [Chennai] for a very long time. I think the fans really love CSK and it's a special connection and they have adopted me very well. It's become like the first year when we cribbed about the track but end up winning. I don't think we want to play on wickets like these. It becomes difficult batting first but tends to get easier with the dew coming in. Harbhajan and Tahir are like wine as they are getting better with age. Bhajji has done well in the games he's played and Tahir has done well too. 
Dinesh Karthik: Not enough runs on the board. These kind of games are tricky because you never know what kind of score to set, especially with the dew. Yes, after losing four wickets in the powerplay, you are behind the eight-ball. But credit to Andre Russell who showed maturity once again.  Few positives. The way spinners bowled with the wet ball, Russell ofcourse and the way we reacted defending a low total.

Some flurry of boundaries towards the end but it turned out to be a slugfest. 108 was never going to be enough and CSK have cantered home. Shane Watson started off well but couldn't really kick on. Raina came and went as he failed to convert yet another start. Rayudu scored a 31-ball 21 while Faf du Plessis held one end up and kept the scoreboard ticking. But none of the batsmen showed intent to make a move on and eventually, CSK romped home in the 18th over. They now move to the top of the points table with 10 points. KKR bowlers struggled and they found it tough to cope with a wet ball. 
Wides and CSK win with 16 balls to spare. 
17.3 Wide Sunil Narine to Faf du Plessis. Off break length ball, down leg side on the front foot working, Play and Miss (Leg Side) to fine leg for 5 runs.

17.1 Sunil Narine to Kedar Jadhav. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the back foot pushing, to cover for 1 run, fielded by Lynn.
