Ravindra Jadeja unleashed his all-round fury against Kolkata Knight Riders to take Chennai Super Kings past the hosts at Eden Gardens.
A look at how the match was played out. (PTI image)
Kolkata won the toss at the start and opted to bat. Gautam Gambhir had a new partner in Yusuf Pathan. (BCCI image)
Gambbhir looked in fine touch once again and he scored 25 in quick time. He hit five boundaries. (BCCI image)
Even after Gambhir was dismissed, Yusuf continued his march and looked as if he had finally found form.
The other end though began dwindling when Jacques Kallis was run-out with the South African not even facing a single delivery. (BCCI image)
Another run-out followed when Yusuf's innings was cut short on 25. Kolkata's innings looked rickety at this stage. (BCCI image)
Wickets continued to tumble as the middle order caved in once again. Chennai bowlers made the most of some excellent fielding. (BCCI image)
The hosts eventually folded on 119/9. The look on the faces in the dug-out expressed the opinion about the target set. (BCCI image)
Kolkata though hit back hard with the ball.
Even though the target was paltry, the bowlers struck early to snatch the advantage. (BCCI image)
Opener Hussey though anchored the chase from his end and despite losing partners, managed to keep the scoreboard ticking. (BCCI image)
Hussey was joined by a rampaging Jadeja and the Saurasthra batsman whacked away to glory and a win with his side crossing the finish line in the final over of the match. (BCCI image)
