The result reflected these contrasts while CSK defeated Kolkata Knight Riders by 18 rounds. A change of venue did not translate much into a change of fortune for the KKR, as it collapsed in its third trot defeat.
CSK climbed to the top of the points table. Faf du Plessis, Deepak Chahar, Ruturaj Gaikwad, all in yellow jerseys, will enjoy tonight for their memorable performances.

Eoin Morgan, Prasidh Krishna, Shubman Gill, in KKR colors, will want to forget Wednesday quickly. Andre Russell (22-ball 54) and Pat Cummins (34-ball 66 *) raised visions of a KKR miracle with their lustful six, six each. However, they were asked too much, even if Dinesh Karthik (24 balls 40) played an active supporting role.
Raising Cummins as a batsman is a positive thing that KKR will take out of this match. He is probably the answer to everything they lacked in order.
Du Plessis proved he had a lot to offer, breaking 95 undefeated balls out of 60, while CSK destroyed KKR’s attack, accumulating 220/3. And on the other side of the break, Chahar took revenge, grabbing 4/29.

In the end, KKR were beaten for 202 in the 20th, a big fight as they faltered at 31/5 in the sixth final.
Du Plessis’ main partner was his opening colleague, Gaikwad, who showed that he was ready to be named among the best on the bench in India, as he scored a 64 in a timely and classy manner.
