KKR v CSK Recap: Chennai Beat KKR for the Second Time This Season
A four wicket haul from Imran Tahir and a resurgent innings from Suresh Raina guided Chennai Super Kings (CSK) to their seventh win in eight IPL games. The three-time IPL champions got past Kolkata Knight Riders by five wickets in the return leg game at Eden Gardens on Sunday.
KKR, on the other hand, slumped to their third straight defeat, remaining on eight points from eight matches.
Tahir (4/27) first played a pivotal role in restricting KKR to 161/8.
CSK needed 24 in the last two overs, but Jadeja hit Harry Gurney for a hattrick of fours in the 19th over to bring the equation down to eight runs off six balls.
The India all-rounder then creamed Piyush Chawla for a boundary to hit the winning runs as the defending champions won with two balls to spare.
