Chennai Super Kings win by 55 runs. This is the first defeat for KKR this season after two victories. Well quite an amazing win it was for CSK, they were initially struggling during their batting but perhaps 3 or 4 overs of big hitting from Dhoni and Badrinath changed the complexion of the match. KKR's batting lacked the class and the pitch was well used by the Chennai seamers.
Over 19.2: Run Out at the Striker's end! L Balaji to I Sharma, short of length delivery, pushes it to backward point and decides to take a desperate single. Kartik was hoping that the fielder would miss the stumps but he didn't and he is run out by a long distance.
Over 19.1: Beaten! L Balaji to I Sharma, good length delivery, goes for the big shot and misses it outside off.
