Shubman Gill (57*) and Dinesh Karthik (45*) played stellar knocks to help Kolkata Knight Riders beat Chennai Super Kings by 6 wickets in their Indian Premier League clash on Thursday at the Eden Gardens. Chasing 178 to win, Chris Lynn (12) gave KKR a solid start against CSK after he hit two sixes in the very first over. Lynn was however dismissed in the first over itself by Lungi Ngidi. Sunil Narine (32) continued KKR's charge as he hit two sixes and four boundaries before getting dismissed in the seventh over. Robin Uthappa (6) yet again failed to get going and was back to the pavilion off KM Asif's ball. Both Shubman and Karthik led the run-chase and kept the run-rate going. Harbhajan Singh (1/20) was the only economical bowler for CSK. Ngidi and Ravindra Jadeja shared a wicket apiece for Chennai. (SCORECARD)

Earlier, Chennai rode on a valiant 25-ball 43 run knock by MS Dhoni who helped them reach 177/5 against Kolkata in their IPL clash on Thursday. Shane Watson (36) and Faf du Plessis (27) gave the visitors a decent start. However, after Du Plessis' departure, KKR took control of the game. Suresh Raina (31) and Ambati Rayadu (21) got starts but could not convert it into big scores. Narine was the pick of the bowlers for KKR as he finished with bowling figures of 2/20 in 4 overs. Piyush Chawla also took two wickets but was slightly expensive.

Narine and Kuldeep bowled brilliantly in the middle and pegged back Chennai with a couple of wickets, but a blitz in the end by Dhoni has seen them end up with something close to 180. The wicket is turning a little but Kolkata will fancy their chances in chasing down this total. Chennai on the other hand, will have to bowl well to come out victorious here. Whatever it may be, we can surely expect an exciting second half. Join us for the action in a while.

!

So Chennai end up with a decent total on the board and once again it is courtesy of their skipper, MS Dhoni, who scored an unbeaten 25-ball 43. After being put into bat, Faf du Plessis and Shane Watson came out all guns blazing. They got their team off to a flier before the former departed. Raina and Watson then joined forces to stitch another important stand before the Kolkata spinners came to the fore.

Piyush Chawla to MS Dhoni

FOUR! A good way to finish the innings! Also a good last over, 15 from it. This is short and on middle, Dhoni rocks back and pulls it in front of square. There is no fielder in the deep there and a boundary results. CHENNAI FINISH WITH 177/5 ON THE BOARD!

Piyush Chawla to Ravindra Jadeja

OUT! Jadeja's struggle comes to an end. He was done in by the pace there. Chawla fires this outside off and it is on the shorter side. It also bounces a touch extra. Jadeja tries to drag his pull on the leg side but gets a top edge which lobs towards short third man. Dinesh Karthik runs backwards and Sunil Narine from that position also comes ahead. The skipper gets to it and takes it. The batsmen cross though and Dhoni will face the last ball.

!

Karn Sharma is the next man in.

Piyush Chawla to Ravindra Jadeja

FOUR BYES! Bonus runs for Chennai. This is slower through the air outside off, Jadeja goes for the slog sweep but misses. Dinesh behind the stumps fails to get down low quickly as the ball sneaks through his legs and goes to the fence behind.

Piyush Chawla to Ravindra Jadeja

FOUR! Finally Jadeja connects one! Uses his feet, gets to the pitch of the ball and hits it hard over the bowler and the ball races away. Chennai needed this. 50-run stand is up between the two.

Piyush Chawla to MS Dhoni

Quicker and on the pads, Dhoni mistimes his pull towards deep square leg for a run. Just a single to start the last and also Dhoni is off strike now.

!

Piyush Chawla to bowl the last over. This is a big move from Dinesh Karthik.
