Twitter Team Battle IPL CSK vs KKR 5th Match 2018

After beat Mumbai Indians by a cliffhanger in their first game of the season, Chennai Super Kings registered yet another thrilling win in the 2018 IPL as they beat Kolkata Knight Riders by five wickets at the MA Chidambaram stadium in Chennai.

After putting into bat first, Kolkata were reduced to 89/5 before a 100-run partnership from skipper Dinesh Karthik and Andre Russell took them to a defendable total of 202/6. Russell was severe on the CSK bowlers as he smashed an unbeaten 88 off 36 balls with the help of a solitary boundary and as many as 11 sixes. Even CSK’s best death bowler Dwayne Bravo wasn’t spared as the Trinidadian conceded 50 runs in his three overs.

Chasing 203 to win, CSK were off to a great start as openers Shane Watson and Ambati Rayudu took them off to a great start by scoring 75 runs in the first six overs. Kuldeep Yadav and Sunil Narine came to the attack and choked the run-flow. MS Dhoni held one end up and let English import Sam Billings cut loose from the other.

Billings, who is making his IPL debut for CSK, scored a 23-ball 56 and took CSK close to victory before getting out. The hero from CSK’s last match, Bravo and Ravindra Jadeja had to score 17 off the last over and a no-ball from Vinay Kumar reduced the margin to 10 from six. Jadeja sealed an emphatic five-wicket win for CSK with a six over long-on and put CSK at the top of the table.
