  • That brings us to the end of the first match of the Sunday double-header, with Chennai Super Kings maintaining themselves on top of the points table with their seventh victory in eight games. Imran Tahir was brilliant with the ball to help restrict Kolkata Knight Riders, while Suresh Raina went about chase with a cool mind, finishing unbeaten on 58, with Jadeja staying unbeaten on a 17-ball 31 at the other end.


    Time for us to shift our attention to the second game of the evening, with Sunrisers Hyderabad winning the toss and opting to bowl against Delhi Capitals at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium — SRH's base. Follow live updates on the match here.

    CSK clinical at the end again. The juggernaut keeps rolling. They now have two wins in two back to back away games. This time Raina puts his hand up to see his team through. The team management will be delighted to see different players making match winning contributions. It only makes them more formidable in their title defense. The match was set up by the Imran Tahir in the middle overs when he broke the back of KKR middle order in a skillful and courageous display of leg spin bowling.

  • Umang Pabari, Cricket statistician

    CSK's win today was the 10th consecutive for a chasing team in IPL.

    Chawla is given the ball for the final over, but he starts off with a quicker delivery outside off to Jadeja, which the latter guides towards third man to start the over off with a four. It's a stroll to the finish line thereafter, with two singles and a brace coming off the next three deliveries, as Chennai Super Kings collect their seventh win in eight games to continue their stronghold at the top of the points table!

    This is CSK's first victory after losing five consecutive matches at Eden Gardens in IPL.

    Raina has played some good innings this season but hasn't stayed there till the end to see his team home. No matter which way this turns, CSK will be richer for their premium middle order player getting to spend time in the middle in a pressure situation. 

  • After 19 overs,Chennai Super Kings 154/5 ( Suresh Raina 57 , Ravindra Jadeja 24)

    Gurney is brought back to bowl his final over, but the Englishman perhaps suffers his first major jolt of the season as he is clobbered for three consecutive fours by Jadeja, with 16 runs coming off the over. Suddenly, the job is all the easier for the Super Kings. CSK need 8 to win off 6.

    FOUR! A hat-trick of fours, this time Jadeja flicking a full delivery from Gurney towards the square-leg fence! Poor lines from Gurney so far. CSK 151/5

    KKR v CSK Expert’s Voice

    CSK have to cross the line without their captain holding the hand tonight. Another timely test for the team. With Jadeja and Raina in the middle and Santner back in the dugout, you would back the men in yellow to cross the line. 

  • After 18 overs,Chennai Super Kings 138/5 ( Suresh Raina 56 , Ravindra Jadeja 9)

    Narine bowls out his final over. Raina muscles the ball towards the cow corner fence for a boundary off the second delivery. Eight off the over, with four singles coming off it aside from the boundary, as Narine finishes with figures of 2/19. CSK need 24 to win off 12.

    Prasidh Krishna returns to the attack for the slog overs. Raina collects a single off the first ball to bring up his half century. Jadeja gets a leading off the fouth delivery, and comes back for a second after the ball lands in the vacant area beyond cover. Jadeja drives the ball dow the ground off the following delivery. A wide and a single follow. CSK need 32 to win off 18.

    FOUR! Jadeja clears his front foot and drives the ball down the ground to collect his first four! CSK 128/5

    This is the first time that Narine has dismissed Dhoni in IPL.

  • CSK Score latest updates

    Fifty up for Suresh Raina off 36 deliveries, the southpaw collecting a single at the start of the 17th over to bring up the milestone. Muted celebrations from Raia though, with the responsibility of almost single-handedly guiding CSK to their seventh win resting on his shoulders. CSK 122/5

  • After 16 overs,Chennai Super Kings 121/5 ( Suresh Raina 49 , Ravindra Jadeja 0)

    Crucial moment in the game after Narine traps Dhoni lbw off the fourth delivery, with MS playing down the wrong line and missing the ball. Jadeja walks out to the crease, and sees off the remaining deliveries. Just one run and a wicket off a golden over from Narine.  CSK need 41 to win off 24. 

  • Umang Pabari, Cricket statistician

    Suresh Raina now holds the record of scoring most runs against an opponent in IPL, surpassing his tally of 803 runs against MI in IPL.

    Gurney returns to the attack after the timeout. Single collected of each of the first two deliveries, with Raina collecting a double and a boundary off the next two. Raina taps the ball down the ground for a single off the penultimate delivery, and Dhoni steers towards sweeper point for a brace off the last delivery. CSK need 42 to win off 30.

    FOUR! Full toss from Gurney, and Raina simply tickles this away to the fine-leg fence for a boundary. CSK 117/4

  • Rajesh Tiwary, Freelance cricket writer

    KKR v CSK Expert’s Voice

    For some reason CSK are taking way more risks in the middle overs than they are known for. Dhoni miscued a lofted shot against Kuldeep but followed it with another attempt nailed it. It's possible that CSK are challenging themselves to finish it in the 19th over instead of 20. With the team already at the top of the table Dhoni had hinted his team could try a few different things. A different modus operandi of closing a run chase could be one of them. 

  • After 14 overs,Chennai Super Kings 109/4 ( Suresh Raina 40 , MS Dhoni (C) (W) 13)

    Raina collects a four and a six off successive deliveries to put Chawla under pressure in his third over. Single collected off each of the last three deliveries. CSK need 53 to win off 36. The umpire signals the second timeout of the innings after this over.

    Raina collects a single off the first ball. Dhoni gets a thick leading edge while looking for a maximum off the second delivery, coming back for a second. MS gets the six that he was looking for in the third delivery, smashing the ball over long on! Fine running between the wickets in the fourth delivery as Dhoni collects another double. Single collected off the last two deliveries, with 13 coming off the over. CSK need 66 to win off 42.

    SIX! Bang off the middle of his bat, smashing the ball into the stands over long on! CSK 92/4

  • Rajesh Tiwary, Freelance cricket writer

    KKR v CSK Expert’s Voice

    Uncharacteristic inning from Jadhav. He had to keep the required run rate under control but was taking too many chances that weren't required in a chase of 162. It means that man Dhoni again has a job in his hands to take his team across in what is a tight run chase now. 

  • Umang Pabari, Cricket statistician

    MS Dhoni needs 61 runs to complete 4000 runs as captain in the IPL.

    MS Dhoni's batting SR against Sunil Narine in IPL is 50.88.

  • After 12 overs,Chennai Super Kings 83/4 ( Suresh Raina 26 , MS Dhoni (C) (W) 1)

    CSK Score latest updates


    Chawla removes the dangerman Jadhav off the first ball of his second over, trapping him plumb leg-before. Jadhav has a word with Raina, but the two concur that it looked out, which is also what HawkEye tells us by showing three reds. MS Dhoni walks out to a loud cheer from the Eden crowd, and gets off the mark right away with a single, with Raina also collecting one for himself off the next delivery. Dot off each of the last three deliveries. Two runs and a wicket off an excellent over from Chawla. CSK need 79 to win from 48 balls

  • CSK Score latest updates

    OUT! Chawla fires a quicker delivery at Jadhav, removing him for 20 by trapping him leg-before! KKR need wickets at regular intervals to stay in the hunt, and they're getting that right now. CSK 81/4

    Jadhav goes for a slog-sweep off the second delivery of Kuldeep's second over, clearing the midwicket fence as a result. Muscles the ball towards the cow corner boundary three deliveries later, before collecting a single to keep the strike. 11 off the over. CSK need 81 to win off 54

    KKR v CSK Expert’s Voice

    We are on to something here. The trinity of spinners for KKR are making an impact on the game. They have sustained pressure from both ends and Rayudu perished as a result of that pressure trying to play an uncharacteristic uppish drive. Jadhav has started well with those deft touches and lovely hands. He is one of the best players to have in this situation. Chennai need to make sure that they don't get too far behind the run rate while trying to consolidate. 

  • After 10 overs,Chennai Super Kings 70/3 ( Suresh Raina 25 , Kedar Jadhav 9)

    CSK Score latest updates


    Chawla replaces Narine from the High Court End, and he strikes right away, dismissing Rayudu right after the timeout, as the India No 4 hopeful falls cheaply on the eve of India's World Cup squad announcement. Jadhav walks out to bat, and collects consecutive boundaries to get going right away, before collecting a single off the last delivery. Nine off the over. Still anyone's game at the halfway stage of the CSK innings. CSK need 92 to win off 60 balls.

    FOUR! A deft touch from Kedar Jadhav this time, guiding the ball towards third man. Gurney gives the ball a chase in vain. CSK 69/3

  • CSK Score latest updates

    FOUR! A boundary off the third delivery to Jadhav, as he goes for an inside-out loft towards the extra cover fence. CSK 65/3

    OUT! The trend of a wicket falling after the powerplay continues, as Rayudu hits the ball straight to Uthappa at short extra cover, giving Chawla a wicket off his first delivery of the evening. CSK 61/3

    Rayudu c Uthappa b Chawla 5(11)

  • After 9 overs,Chennai Super Kings 61/2 ( Suresh Raina 25 , Ambati Rayudu 5)

    CSK Score latest updates


    Kuldeep Yadav brought into the attack in the ninth over, with Rayudu and Raina opting to keep the scoreboard ticking through singles, four of which are collected in the over. Umpire signals timeout at the end of this over. Has been an even contest between bat and ball so far in this innings. 

  • After 8 overs,Chennai Super Kings 57/2 ( Suresh Raina 23 , Ambati Rayudu 3)

    CSK Score latest updates


    Narine concedes 10 off this over, including a boundary off the penultimate delivery to Raina, and a wide as Chennai cross the 50-run mark. The two wickets that they have lost have only put the brakes on their run-rate, and CSK will need these two to put up a solid partnership to get back in control. 

  • Rajesh Tiwary, Freelance cricket writer

    KKR v CSK Expert’s Voice

    Narine gets the all important scalp of Faf du Plessis. He hasn't been in the best of bowling forms this season but this could well be the challenge that helps him revive his mojo. He needs to play the role Tahir played in the first half of this game. CSK aren't going hammer and tongs in the middle over so it won't be surprising if we see another last over finish tonight. 

  • CSK Score latest updates

    FOUR! Tickled away towards the fine-leg fence by Raina off Narine! CSK 56/2

  • After 7 overs,Chennai Super Kings 47/2 ( Suresh Raina 16 , Ambati Rayudu 1)

    CSK Score latest updates


    Krishna starts off with an 144 kmph outswinger to Raina, who flicks the next delivery towards long leg for a single. Just two more singles are collected between Raina and Rayudu in the remaining deliveries. 

  • Umang Pabari, Cricket statistician

    CSK's run-rate of 6.60 in middle-overs (7-15) this IPL so far - the lowest among all teams this season.

  • After 6 overs,Chennai Super Kings 44/2 ( Suresh Raina 14 , Ambati Rayudu 0)

    CSK Score latest updates


    Narine is brought into the attack in the final over of the powerplay, and he succeeds in getting rid of the set South African opener off the second delivery with a delivery that beats his defence and knocks the off-stump over. Ambati Rayudu, talk of the town right now with India's WC squad announcement around the corner, walks out to bat and sees off the remainder of the over. Narine starts off with a wicket maiden! End of the CSK powerplay. 

IPL 12 Match 29 KKR vs CSK at Eden Gardens in Kolkata: Chawla is given the ball for the final over, but he starts off with a quicker delivery outside off to Jadeja, which the latter guides towards third man to start the over off with a four. It's a stroll to the finish line thereafter, with two singles and a brace coming off the next three deliveries, as Chennai Super Kings collect their seventh win in eight games to continue their stronghold at the top of the points table!

IPL 2019, KKR vs CSK, Today's Match Preview: After suffering back-to-back defeats, Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) will aim to regain the lost momentum against Chennai Super Kings (CSK) at the Eden Gardens of Sunday.

There's a concern within the team that they are over-dependent on star all-rounder Andre Russell to get the job done and to his credit, the West Indian has been phenomenal in the tournament. But other key players from the side need to step up and perform consistently.

The spin bowling department of the Knight Riders also should make it count when it matters the most. The likes of Piyush Chawla, Kuldeep Yadav and Sunil Narine definitely have the ability to turn the game around but so far, they have been not doing enough.

For Chennai Super Kings, things have been going as per plan. They sit on top of the table, with victories in six matches out seven. One of the big positives for the MS Dhoni-led side is that they are not dependent on one player. The team has a good number of experienced players in their ranks and they have been consistent with their performers.

Dhoni has been leading his side well with good selection calls, depending on the match conditions and also with perfect bowling changes. Unlike his cool demeanour, he lost his temper last game against Rajasthan where he walked to the middle of the ground and confronted the umpire over a no-ball call.

Kolkata Knight Riders and Chennai Super Kings Full Squad

Kolkata Knight Riders Team 2019 Players list: Dinesh Karthik (c/wk), Robin Uthappa, Chris Lynn, Shubman Gill, Andre Russell, Carlos Brathwaite, Sunil Narine, Piyush Chawla, Kuldeep Yadav, Nikhil Naik, Joe Denly, Shrikant Mundhe, Nitish Rana, Sandeep Warrier, Prasidh Krishna, Lockie Ferguson, Harry Gurney, Matt Kelly, KC Cariappa and Yarra Prithviraj.

Chennai Super Kings Team 2019 Players list: MS Dhoni (c/wk), Suresh Raina, Ambati Rayudu, Shane Watson, Faf du Plessis, Murali Vijay, Kedar Jadhav, Sam Billings, Ravindra Jadeja, Dhruv Shorey, Chaitanya Bishnoi, Rituraj Gaikwad, Dwayne Bravo, Karn Sharma, Imran Tahir, Harbhajan Singh, Mitchell Santner, Shardul Thakur, Mohit Sharma, KM Asif, Deepak Chahar, N Jagadeesan, Scott Kuggeleijn.
