Chasing a mammoth target of 221, KKR didn’t get the specified start.
They lost Shubman Gill within the first over after the right-hander produced a thick edge.
That traveled straight to the third man, giving Chahar his first wicket of the match.
Nitesh Rana creamed two boundaries before he made his way back to the pavilion. The left-hander hit the ball within the air, and therefore.
The CSK skipper MS Dhoni safely collected the ball as Chahar picked his second wicket.
The right-arm pacer was backing to bowl the fifth over and struck twice to urge the large wicket of KKR skipper Eon Morgan then of Sunil Narine.
While Morgan edged one to Dhoni
Narine was dismissed sensational catch from Ravinder Jadeja within the circle.
With 31/4 after 5 overs and Andre Russell and Dinesh Karthik at the crease.
KKR batsmen had no options but back their natural abilities to urge on the brink of the steep target.
Russell started the exploits within the sixth over after the right-hander smashed two fours.
And a six off Ngidi and gave a touch of what’s coming next within the upcoming overs.
Karthik also didn’t twiddle my thumbs and smashed Chahar for a huge six.
Within the eighth over followed by a four-off Jadeja.
The Karthik-Russell duo then added 14 off the Jadeja over and with Russell taking advantage of the free hit.
With a big six, and notching up his half-century à la mode, off just 21 deliveries.
Karthik though carried on the hustle and hit a four and a six within the same over.
Pat Cummins, who had replaced Russell within the middle, was on the move.
However, Cummins had his plans in situ and scored 30 runs off the 16th over by Currant.
That included four sixes and a four within the cleanest sort of striking the ball.
Ngidi, who bowled the 17th over of the innings scalped the wicket of Kamlesh Nagarkoti.
Before Cummins reached his half-century in 23 balls.
With 28 required off the ultimate two, Cummins started the over a maximum but lost yet.
One more partner requires a double as KKR lost their ninth wicket.
KKR required 20 of the ultimate over.
CSK, on the very first delivery
Completed a run-out on the non-striker’s end and managed to defend the entire at the end.
Earlier Indian Premier League, CSK was put in to bat first and made one change to their XI Luigi Ngidi played in situ of Dwayne Bravo.
Ruturaj Gaikwad and FAF du Plessis started on a confident note.
And smashed 15 runs off the second over by Pat Cummins.
Du Plessis began the over a four while Ruturaj smashed a four and 6 each.
The opening duo didn’t let the KKR spinners VA run Chakraborty and Sunil Narine settle with the new ball.
Ruturaj welcomed Russell to the crease with an excellent steer deep mid-wicket.
That went for a maximum and closed the over a four, played within the same fashion.
CSK was going strong at the top of the ten-over mark, scoring 82 runs without losing any wicket.
They hammered 16 runs off Kamlesh Nagarkoti, who was bowling his first over of the sports.
After Ruturaj cleared the ropes twice together with his hard-hitting and completed a powerful fifty off just 33 deliveries.
The next-over was even bettered for the batting side after Preside Krishna overstepped twice and gave away 17, runs that included a four and a six, courtesy of Ruturaj’s brilliant striking.
Chakraborty came into a bowl the ultimate over of his spell and got the breakthrough that KKR was trying to find.
Ruturaj’s fine knock of 64 off 42 deliveries ended after the right-hander played it straight to the hands of Cummins, who took a pointy catch within the outfield.
Meanwhile, Du Plessis mentioned his half-century with a four and was joined by Moeen Ali with CSK eying an enormous total.
Cummins then gave away 14 runs and therefore, the pressure levels were up for the KKR.
Moeen and Du Plessis then smacked a six and a four each off the bowling of Preside Krishna within the next over. Moeen then took on Narine for a four and 6 within the first two deliveries before Narine got higher of the left-hander who was stumped on subsequent delivery.
CSK skipper MS Dhoni promoted himself up the order and hit two fours, and a six before Du Plessis creamed three fours during a row to Russell within the penultimate over.
KKR found success within the 19th over because of a sensational catch from KKR skipper, Eon Morgan to urge the wicket of Dhoni.
CSK finished wonderfully after Du Plessis smashed two sixes while Jadeja cleared the ropes on the ultimate ball of the innings as CSK put 220/3 on the board.
Indian Premier League Chennai Super Kings 220/3 (FAF du Plessis 95·, Ruturaj Gaikwad 64; VA run Chakraborty 1/27) beat Kolkata Knight Riders 202 all out (Pat Cummins 66·, Andre Russell 54; Deepak Chahar 4/29) by 18 runs.
