23:37 (IST)

That's all we have for tonight. Another nail-biter which ended with Chennai Super Kings on the winning side of things but pity they can't make it to the playoffs. Kolkata Knight Riders needed to win this one to ensure they have the upper hand when it comes to making it to the next stage but now, things have turned little bit complicated for their liking. They still have one match to play and they need those two points.

We'll be back again tomorrow for another crucial match between Kings XI Punjab and Rajasthan Royals, both teams in contention for top four spot. See you then!

Gaikwad is Man of the Match

Gaikwad: It feels good. Very confident. Thankfully both knocks came in winning results. Confidence was there. I backed myself. When I got out, situations were difficult. I knew I will take my time. It was matter of time as confidence was always there. COVID has made me tough. Our captain always face every situation with a smile. It was difficult but I was trying. I do work hard and I have six pack abs.

MS Dhoni: "It was one game where the climax went in our favour. A lot of credit to the boys. This season, he (Jadeja) has been fantastic. He has looked to score every way. Ruturaj has shown the talent that he is. He came in and got positive with COVID. We didn't have much time to have a look at him. I think it is very exciting how he has grabbed his chances." 

23:18 (IST)

Eoin Morgan

"I think we played really well there. Our bowlers absolutely gave their everything. We have one game left, and still have a very little chance. We felt we were right in the game. Looking forward to the next game against Royals."

Ravindra Jadeja at his best. Seven needed off two balls and he smashed two sixes to take CSK home. What a match! Nagarkoti shows great heart and bowls four good balls but fails to get the job done. Dot, 2, 1, dot, 6, 6. 

CSK win the match by 6 wickets. Despite the loss, KKR are still in playoffs contention but they will now depend on the results of other teams.

Another six to finish the match. Jadeja does it for CSK!

JADEJA CLEARS THE DEEP MID-WICKET BOUNDARY!

98 metres six off the penultimate ball. CSK need just one run now, 

23:04 (IST)

After 19 overs,Chennai Super Kings 163/4 ( Sam Curran 10 , Ravindra Jadeja 19)

Ferguson starts off with a wide down the leg. The next ball is a low full toss, Jadeja hits it straight to the deep mid-wicket fielder for just one run. Curran then tries for the scoop but Ferguson follows the batsman and the batsman misses his shot. Another full delivery to Curran just for a single. He misses his length in the next ball and Jadeja finds the boundary. Ferguson then bowls a high full toss to Jadeja and it's a no-ball so a free hit. Jadeja makes sure he punishes Ferguson with a six and then a four off the edge. What an over for CSK! 20 off it and now they need 10 from 6 balls.

IPL 2020 LIVE SCORE, Chennai Super Kings vs Kolkata Knight Riders latest updates: Ravindra Jadeja at his best. Seven needed off two balls and he smashed two sixes to takes CSK home. What a match! Nagarkoti shows great heart and bowls four good balls but fails to get the job one. Dot, 2, 1, dot, 6, 6.CSK win the match by 6 wickets. Despite the loss, KKR still in playoffs contention but they will now depend on the results of other teams.

Preview: Chennai Super Kings take on Kolkata Knight Riders in the 49th match of the Indian Premier League at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium.

KKR are pushed back from fourth to fifth place after the loss to Kings XI Punjab. They are level on points with Punjab but separated by the run rate. With the competition getting hotter, KKR will need to up the ante big time. They have lost their last two matches and we've seen that getting that momentum back is tough. Delhi Capitals have faced that problem and have lost three matches on the trot.

The biggest problem concerning them is their batting. Their top-order faltered against KXIP in their previous match and that meant that they were playing the catch-up game right from the start. Shubman Gill finally got a fifty-plus score but didn't seem at this fluent best. Rahul Tripathi hasn't contributed enough since that 81 against CSK in Abu Dhabi. His scores since that innings read - 4,16,7,23,1,13,7. Nitish Rana too has been inconsistent. They need to promote their best batsman, Eoin Morgan up the order, probably three or four.

It seems like they still haven't found their best combination. In the last match, Kamlesh Nagarkoti didn't bowl and batted ahead of Pat Cummins who's been decent with the bat as well. If they are not going to bowl Nagarkoti, maybe they should look to get in a batsman and strengthen that batting a bit more.

The bowlers had an off day against KXIP and KKR would expect a much better display against CSK.

They also need to consider the fact that CSK are out of the competition and have nothing to lose. So that factor makes it even tougher. They beat RCB in their last match and will be looking to be the party poopers.

CSK will be looking to build for the next season and give the youngsters the chance. The way Ruturaj Gaikwad batted against RCB would have given him as well as the team a lot of confidence.

CSK would look to shuffle and give chances to players who haven't got one in the tournament.

With one team desperately looking to qualify for the playoffs and one team playing for pride, we can expect an enthralling contest.
