Dwayne Bravo, the pick of the CSK bowlers, picked up three wickets but went for 9.25 runs per over. He bowled good slower ones and did not give the batsmen much pace to work with. Sportzpics
Bravo was ably assisted by Karn Sharma, Shardul Thakur, and Sam Curran, who scalped two wickets apiece. However, leg-spinner Karn justified his selection as he finished with an economy of 6.25. Sportzpics
Chasing 168, CSK got off to a flying start, thanks to their openers Shane Watson (50 off 40 balls) and Faf du Plessis (17 off 10 balls). Watson was the top-scorer for CSK and struck six fours and one six in his knock. Sportzpics
After du Plessis’ departure, Ambati Rayudu (30 off 27 balls, three fours) stabilised the innings alongside Watson before handing a catch to Shubman Gill off Kamlesh Nagarkoti’s bowling. Sportzpics
Ravindra Jadeja (21 off 8 balls) provided some late fireworks with three fours and a six, but his effort bore no fruit as CSK crumbled in the chase and fell short of the target by 10 runs. Sportzpics
