Chasing 109 runs, CSK were given a brisk start by Shane Watson, who scored 17 off just 9 balls. His innings included 2 fours and 1 six. Suresh Raina then departed after scoring 14 off 13 balls (1 four, 1 six). Sunil Narine dismissed both Watson and Raina to put a halt to CSK's run chase. Faf du Plessis and Ambati Rayudu then steadied CSK's run-chase as the duo stitched together a 46-run stand for the 3rd wicket. Rayudu was dismissed for 21 by Piyush Chawla. By then, it was too late for KKR to make a comeback in the game as a composed knock by Du Plessis (43 not out) and the finishing touches by Kedar Jadhav (8 not out, 1 four) took CSK home. With this win, the Dhoni-led side move to the top of the points table (5 wins, 10 points). Earlier, KKR scored a meagre 108/9 in 20 overs. Andre Russell brought up his 6th IPL fifty.
