Highlights

  • 23:50 (IST)

    Rahul Tripathi, Man of the Match: It's like a dream come true for me.I was prepared for both roles, glad to contribute to the team's win. I thought ball was coming on nicely. Gill was also striking well. It has been a journey for me, I have loved this journey. Coming to KKR is special. Performing in front of Shah RUkh sir is special.

  • 23:48 (IST)

    Dinesh Karthik: Sunil Narine is a key player, he has always delivered for us. The way he has come back and shown what he's capable of, I'm proud of him. We thought we'll ease pressure off Tripathi a little and good to see him go well. Russell is versatile, he can bat up and down. Our batting is very fluid. I started at 3 and batting at 7. The way those guys batted at the start, they did well. Back end, I have a lot of faith in Sunny and Varun.

  • 23:38 (IST)

    MS Dhoni: The middle overs they bowled a couple of good overs and we lost 2-3 wickets. Had we batted a little better... the batsmen let our bowlers down today. Rotation of strike is always important. Hardly any boundaries in the last 3 overs apart from the last over. We have to see what we can do as batsmen, we didn't adapt well.

IPL 2020 Highlights, KKR vs CSK Match at Abu Dhabi: CSK Choke, KKR Win by 10 runs

IPL 2020 Kolkata Knight Riders vs Chennai Super Kings Live Score and Latest Updates - MS Dhoni: The middle overs they bowled a couple of good overs and we lost 2-3 wickets. Had we batted a little better... the batsmen let our bowlers down today. Rotation of strike is always important. Hardly any boundaries in the last 3 overs apart from the last over. We have to see what we can do as batsmen, we didn't adapt well.

 Preview: Chennai Super Kings (CSK) with clash with Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in match 21 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 in Abu Dhabi on the 7th of October.

CSK will be upbeat after their thumping record-breaking 10-wicket win against Kings XI Punjab in Dubai. It was just the result they needed to lift the morale of the side after one of their worst starts to any IPL season.

KKR would want to get back to winning ways after the defeat against Delhi Capitals in Sharjah.

Chennai Super Kings

At last CSK played like three-time IPL Champions and hammered KXIP in a record breaking victory. Faf du Plessis has been the Player of the Tournament so far for CSK – he has been their Mr Consistent performing in every match when others have struggled and failed. The management will be pleased that Shane Watson was back at his best in the previous encounter.

But CSK can’t rely only on their openers. They need the middle order to fire. MS Dhoni needs to bat up the order and take control of the innings much earlier than what he has been doing in the tournament. Kedar Jadhav has just managed to score 51 runs in 3 innings and needs to make a significant contribution.

Deepak Chahar has been CSK’s most restrictive bowler going at less than 8 an over. Ravindra Jadeja has been unusually expensive with an economy rate of 9.55.

Kolkata Knight Riders

The KKR batting has not fired to its full potential in IPL 2020. Sunil Narine has been completely out of form – both with the bat and ball. The West Indian has just managed to score 27 runs in his 4 innings and also not been restrictive going at 8.5 per over. No batsman has played that one great defining innings yet for KKR. Shubman Gill has been their leading scorer with 152 runs in 4 innings. Even the destructive Andre Russell – who has the highest strike rate in IPL history – has looked out of sorts and just managed to score 48 runs at a strike rate of 145.45 in the tournament. KKR need to shuffle their batting order. Eoin Morgan should bat at number 4.

The bowling hasn’t looked threatening with no bowler looking to take wickets. Pat Cummins has had a disappointing IPL 2020 so far picking just 2 wickets from 4 matches also going at 9.28 per over.
