IPL 2020 Highlights, KKR vs CSK Match, Full Cricket Score: Kolkata stage late comeback to beat Chennai by 10 runs

23:51 (IST)

Just when it seemed Chennai Super Kings were starting to rediscover their rhythm after lean patch, Dinesh Karthik’s shrewd tactics halt them in their tracks as Kolkata Knight Riders climb to the third spot on the points table with their third win of IPL 2020. For Karthik, his biggest takeaway from this victory will be Rahul Tripathi’s utility as an opener as well as the usefulness of Sunil Narine with the ball in the second half of the innings. For Chennai, there might be some change in personnel next game, with Kedar Jadhav most likely to get benched for a game or two after a poor display with the bat today.

We certainly hope you enjoyed our coverage of Match 21 of the ongoing tournament. Do return tomorrow evening for Sunrisers Hyderabad’s clash against Kings XI Punjab in Dubai. For now, it’s time for us to bid you all good night!

23:50 (IST)

Dinesh Karthik, KKR captain: There are some key players, and he’s a very important player. The least we could do is back him for us. I’m really proud of him. He’s somebody who’s opened a lot, so it’s good to see him bat up the order. The good thing about Russell is that he’s very versatile. Our batting is something that is very fluid, anyone can bat anywhere. The way those guys batted at the start, I think they batted really well. Back end, I had a lot of trust in Sunny.

23:50 (IST)

(Man of the Match) Rahul Tripathi: I prepared myself for it. I was prepared for batting both up and down the order. The ball was coming on nicely. Gill was also batting nicely. So just shots came good. Coming into KKR and performing in front of SRK is very special and like a dream come true for me.

23:40 (IST)

Chennai Super Kings captain, MS Dhoni: I think in the middle overs, there was a a phase where we bowled 2-3 good overs. Initially we gave away few in the first six. Curran bowled well. 160-170 was something we could have defended but I think our batters let us down.In scenarios, like the one towards the end, we didn’t adapt well. There were fewer boundaries towards the end and those are the areas we’d like to work upon.  

23:33 (IST)

After 20 overs,Chennai Super Kings 157/5 ( Kedar Jadhav 7 , Ravindra Jadeja 21)

Jadhav turns down a single off the first ball, denying Jadeja the strike, and fails to score off the next delivery as well, with the match pretty much getting sealed then and there itself. Jadeja finally gets the strike as his partner collects a single off the third, but by then he’s left needing some divine intervention along with some big hits. Jadeja does smash a six and two consecutive fours off the last three deliveries, but end up 10 runs short of the Kolkata total as Dinesh Karthik’s men collect their third win of IPL 2020.

23:32 (IST)
four

FOUR! Kolkata Knight Riders win by 10 runs! Jadeja closes the innings out with a boundary towards the wide extra cover fence, with the Kolkata players celebrating after the shot as they complete a superb turnaround to register their third victory of the tournament. CSK 157/5

23:30 (IST)
four

FOUR! Jadeja pulls this towards the square leg fence, bringing up the 150 for Chennai. CSK 153/5; need 15 off 1

23:29 (IST)
six

SIX! Short ball from Russell, and Jadeja cuts this over the backward point fence for a maximum off the fourth ball of the final over! CSK 149/5; need 19 off 2

23:27 (IST)

After 19 overs,Chennai Super Kings 142/5 ( Kedar Jadhav 6 , Ravindra Jadeja 7)

Narine gets hit for two boundaries in his final over, one each to Jadhav and Jadeja, giving away 10 off the over, but that might not be enough for Chennai as they need another 26 to win with neither batsman looking very convincing at the moment.

23:25 (IST)
four

FOUR! Short and wide, Jadeja cuts this over short third man and backward point, the ball eventually running away to the fence. CSK 142/5

IPL 2020 LIVE SCORE, Kolkata Knight Riders vs Chennai Super Kings Live Updates: Jadhav turns down a single off the first ball, denying Jadeja the strike, and fails to score off the next delivery as well, with the match pretty much getting sealed then and there itself. Jadeja finally gets the strike as his partner collects a single off the third, but by then he’s left needing some divine intervention along with some big hits. Jadeja does smash a six and two consecutive fours off the last three deliveries, but end up 10 runs short of the Kolkata total as Dinesh Karthik’s men collect their third win of IPL 2020.

Preview: Building on their emphatic 10-wicket win over Kings XI Punjab, Chennai Super Kings will again aim to deliver the goods when they take on Kolkata Knight Riders in match 21 of the Indian Premier League at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi.

Against KXIP, the CSK openers Shane Watson (83 off 53 balls) and Faf du Plessis (87 off 53) stepped up in tandem for the first time in the tournament. Much to their delight, after three consecutive losses, the Yellow Army bounced back in style. Their bowling, however, still remains an area of concern as barring Deepak Chahar, who conceded 5.66 runs per over, the other bowlers were taken for almost 10 runs per over.

KKR, on the other hand, are coming on the back of a defeat against Delhi Capitals. For the Knight Riders too, it is their bowling that needs to step up. Given their last match was in batsmen friendly conditions at Sharjah, their bowlers would have wanted to be on top of their game. Unfortunately, that did not happen as all their bowlers, with the exception of Andre Russell, went in excess of 11 per over. KKR’s batting was the saving grace, but it wasn’t enough to get them over the line as they fell short by 18 runs.

Skipper Dinesh Karthik must lead by example with his batting, and so should Sunil Narine, who has consistently faltered in providing KKR with explosive starts. Rahul Tripathi could reclaim his usual position at the top of the order after Narine’s poor run. So far, Pat Cummins has blown hot and cold, but KKR would want more from their star buy.

As far as the points table is concerned, CSK occupy the sixth position with four points from five matches while KKR sit on the fourth with four points from as many games.
