CSK opted to bat first after winning the toss. They lost Faf du Plessis early but that did not stop Sam Curran playing his part with a 21-ball knock of 31 runs. Curran was promoted as an opener, and began the innings with du Plessis. CSK coach Stephen Fleming later said in the post-match press conference that the move to do so provided his team a bit of momentum. Sportzpics
