Strategic Time-Out! Chennai have started this game really well as their openers have laid the platform for the rest of the team. They have already added 61 in the first 8 overs and would look to build on the same in the middle overs. Kolkata will be happy that the run flow has slowed down slightly but still will be looking for wickets. This will be an important phase as the spinners of Kolkata have been on fire. Let's see how Chennai's batters navigate against them.
