Andre Russell almost scored half of the team's runs on Tuesday as he scored 50 made off 44 balls. KKR, in total, could manage 108.

Faf du Plessis played the anchor role for CSK in Tuesday night's clash against KKR on a slow Chepauk surface, contributing with important 43 runs made off 45 balls. His knock was of high importance as other batsmen got out trying to score quickly on the slow pitch. Faf came, took his time and made sure he was there till the target of 109 runs was achieved.
