Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) have beaten Chennai Super Kings (CSK) by 6 wickets and 2 overs to spare in their last league match at the IS Bindra Stadium in Mohali on Sunday. After CSK posted 170/5 in their 20 overs, KXIP chased down the target courtesy of two blitzkriegs -- primarily by KL Rahul (71 off 36 balls) and then by Nicholas Pooran (36 off 22 balls). CSK will play the Qualifier 1 in Chennai on Tuesday. Whether they will face Delhi Capitals or Mumbai Indians will be decided later tonight. KXIP finish IPL 2019 at 6th spot. They will be disappointed after the brilliant start they enjoyed to the season, but will be glad they have got one over the league leaders CSK. Earlier, CSK were sent to bat first by KXIP captain Ravichandran Ashwin, who won the toss. KXIP started well, with Sam Curran (3/35) getting Shane Watson's wicket early on. Faf du Plessis (96) and Suresh Raina (53) put on a 120-run partnership before Sam Curran removed Raina against the run of play. Faf du Plessis shifted gears after reaching his fifty and at one point of time it looked as if he would take his team's total near the 200-mark. However, it was Curran who had the last laugh against the South African too, getting the ball to deflect off his pads into the stumps. CSK's ambitions of going for the final push received a jolt with Curran's late strike, and it was further jolted by two wickets by Mohammed Shami (2/17 ) in the last over. (SCORECARD)

  • 19:24 (IST)May 05, 2019
  • 19:23 (IST)May 05, 2019
    Need 5 more to win. Sam Curran has joined Mandeep.
  • 19:20 (IST)May 05, 2019
    Jadeja gets a wicket as well. Elated at getting his wickets column off the mark. Dhoni takes the catch. Muted celebration from him. Bigger battles to come for CSK, he knows.
  • 19:17 (IST)May 05, 2019
    We head into the last Timeout of the match with KXIP needing 8 more runs to win. KXIP would be regretting not giving Nicholas Pooran his time in the sun earlier in the season. They have put on a good show for the home fans today though.
  • 19:15 (IST)May 05, 2019
    Imran Tahir being taken to the cleaners by Pooran. 10 runs to win in 27 balls. Pooran has exploded on to the IPL stage.
  • 19:12 (IST)May 05, 2019
    20 more runs needed to win. Pooran and Mandeep Singh should finish this at a canter.
  • 19:10 (IST)May 05, 2019
    Pooran is playing for the fun of it, it seems. Doesn't have any equation on his mind. See loose ball, smash loose ball seems to be the modus operandi here. Ravindra Jadeja finally brought on to bowl.
  • 19:08 (IST)May 05, 2019
  • 19:07 (IST)May 05, 2019
    Pooran makes Vijay pay. Hits Bravo for four through the covers.
  • 19:06 (IST)May 05, 2019
    Murali Vijay, who has just come on in place of the injured Jadhav, drops an easy catch. Pooran survives.
  • 19:06 (IST)May 05, 2019
    In trying to save a boundary of an over throw, Kedar Jadhav has hurt his shoulder. Concern for India's World Cup hopes.
  • 19:03 (IST)May 05, 2019
    Pooran goes big. Mandeep Singh is in the middle with him. So, KXIP need 45 runs off 8 balls to push CSK down the table. CSK's hold on their place in Tuesday's Qualifier 1 seems ensured. KXIP need 45 runs in 42 balls to win. That should be within their grasp.
  • 18:59 (IST)May 05, 2019
    Mayank Agarwal finds the fielder in the deep. KXIP lose their third wicket. Harbhajan accounting for all three, despite going for 48 runs in his three overs so far.
  • 18:57 (IST)May 05, 2019
  • 18:55 (IST)May 05, 2019
    KXIP need 58 runs in 20 balls to push CSK down the table. Need 58 runs in 54 balls to win this match.
  • 18:54 (IST)May 05, 2019
    Mayank Agarwal denies Harbhajan the hat-trick with a four. Attack is the best form of defence, they say. 
  • 18:52 (IST)May 05, 2019
    Two wickets in two balls for Harbhajan. Both openers are back in the hut. Harbhajan on a hat-trick.
  • 18:51 (IST)May 05, 2019
    KL Rahul finally miscues a big shot. Harbhajan, the man who has borne the brunt of his assault, gets his wicket. Tahir with the catch. Big relief for CSK. KXIP 108/1 after 10.3 overs.
  • 18:49 (IST)May 05, 2019
    Four runs off the bat and two wides in Bravo's over. KXIP 106/0 after 10 overs. KXIP need to chase down the target in the next 4.2 overs to make life difficult for CSK. 
  • 18:42 (IST)May 05, 2019
    Four! One bounce and crashes into the fence. KXIP get to 100/0 in 9 overs.
  • 18:41 (IST)May 05, 2019
    Rahul restarts his onslaught after the break. Was a good over by Chahar till that ball.
  • 18:39 (IST)May 05, 2019
    An over by Bravo against the run of play. Just 5 runs off it. Dhoni was seen having an animated talk in the team huddle just before this over. They shall be aware of the NRR situation. They can afford a defeat today, they just need to ensure they do not let KXIP win with 5.4 overs to spare. If that happens, they drop below DC on the NRR column, and risk dropping down to third spot if MI win later today.
  • 18:31 (IST)May 05, 2019
    KXIP move on to 85/0 after 7 overs. CSK will start to be worried here. Their place in the top two could be in danger if KXIP carry on at this rate. They shall drop below DC on the NRR column if this Gayle-Rahul show gets out of hand. 
  • 18:29 (IST)May 05, 2019
    Gayle finally steps into the act. Tahir smashed down the ground. Sixth six of the innings. First for Gayle.
  • 18:26 (IST)May 05, 2019
    Gayle still failing to connect with balls. 6 off 13 balls. If only Rahul had more support from him now.
  • 18:23 (IST)May 05, 2019
    Bravo facing Rahul's wrath as well. KL Rahul can do no wrong today.
  • 18:22 (IST)May 05, 2019
  • 18:21 (IST)May 05, 2019
    KXIP are 60/0 after the first five overs. Gayle is on 5 off 10 balls. Bravo bowling to him. KL Rahul would be fidgeting on the non-striker's end. He is on 54 off 21.
  • 18:14 (IST)May 05, 2019
    KL Rahul reaches his fifty in the 4th over. Carnage from him! Making KXIP fans hope for the impossible. 
  • 18:13 (IST)May 05, 2019
    Rahul on 46 off 17 balls. Tearing apart Harbhajan here.
  • 18:11 (IST)May 05, 2019
    Harbhajan back into the attack and concedes a four off the first ball. Misfield to blame for that. Second ball smashed into the leg side. Harbhajan under a lot of pressure early on.
  • 18:06 (IST)May 05, 2019
    Again down to fine leg. CSK bowlers need to re-examine their line against Rahul here.
  • 18:06 (IST)May 05, 2019
    Chahar gets hit for four down to fine leg as well. Rahul taking the onus of this chase on himself.
  • 18:03 (IST)May 05, 2019
    Rahul steps across his stumps and maneuvers the ball to the fine leg boundary for a maximum. 18 runs off the Harbhajan over.
  • 18:02 (IST)May 05, 2019
    Harbhajan Singh has conceded 10 runs off his first four balls.
  • 18:01 (IST)May 05, 2019
    Gayle not messing around. First ball of Harbhajan's over smashed for four.
  • 17:59 (IST)May 05, 2019
    Last ball of the over smashed for six after five dot balls. 6/0 after the first over.
