Over 20 Chennai Super Kings 205/5/No

Right, then! That brings us to an end of a thriller between two fine teams. Will be a night to remember for the Chennai crowd. We move on to Jaipur tomorrow where Rajasthan will host Delhi in their first home game after a long absence. The action will begin at 2000 IST. Do join in for it. Till then, cheers!

Dinesh Karthik says the atmosphere was right up there with all the support with Chennai. Credits the way Andre Russell played but is disappointed to not defend it. Further adds winning and losing is part and parcel of the game but they have to be ready for the next match against Hyderabad.
The game seemed all but over, but Sam Billings had other ideas. He displayed his range of innovative shots and took the game deep, keeping his team in the hunt and with a chance to get the job done. Dwayne Bravo walked in and along with Ravindra Jadeja, put the finishing touches on the chase to seal a glorious victory for the Chennai crowd. Earlier in the evening, Kolkata got to a daunting total, courtesy some fireworks from Andre Russell, but it didn't prove to be enough in the end. Stay tuned as the presentation will be coming up shortly.
A dramatic finish to the game. The Chennai players rush onto the field and celebrate with Bravo and Jadeja. Superb scenes. With a mammoth target of 203 to gun down, Watson and Rayudu provided the ideal start for the hosts. The platform was set to take advantage of, but wickets at regular wickets in the middle saw Kolkata come back in the game and hold the upper hand.
19.5
V Kumar to R Jadeja, SIX! And Jadeja finishes it off in style! CHENNAI WIN BY 5 WICKETS! What a hit. Full and in the arc, Jadeja stands tall, and with the full swing of his bat, launches it over long on for a biggie. The Chepauk stadium explodes as the home side wins the first home game, two years after its return.
19.4
V Kumar to D Bravo, Manages just the single. Kumar fires it full outside off, Bravo drags it down towards long on for one.
19.3
V Kumar to R Jadeja, Length ball aiming the top of off stump, Jadeja glides it to backward point and brings Bravo on strike.
19.3
V Kumar to R Jadeja, Wide! Kumar comes over the wicket and hurls it well outside off, Jadeja leaves it alone. It's across the tramline and a wide is called. Pressure getting to the pacer. 6 from 4 to win.
19.2
V Kumar to D Bravo, Back of a length outside off, Bravo pulls it over mid-wicket. He wants the second but Jadeja doesn't want it. Dwayne is furious with him, he makes it known.
19.1
V Kumar to D Bravo, The catch is taken but it won't matter! Full and outside off, Bravo lofts it over mid on. Rinku Singh in the deep takes it and two runs are taken.
19.1
V Kumar to D Bravo, SIX! It's a no ball as well. The crowd erupts. High full toss on the hips from around the wicket, Bravo swings across the line. May not have connected well enough, but he gets enough to clear the fine leg fence for a biggie.

Free Hit coming up...
Vinay Kumar to bowl the final over of the game. 17 needed for the win. Kolkata have the advantage, but anything can happen here with Dwayne Bravo still remaining.
18.6
Tom Curran to D Bravo, Superb yorker on leg, not much Bravo can do about it besides flicking it to deep mid-wicket for a single.
18.5
Tom Curran to R Jadeja, The slower one again, on a length, Jadeja skips down the track and pushes it away from the body towards point. Chawla moves to his left and dives to stop it. Good effort. Single taken.
Dwayne Bravo, the hero of the opener comes out to bat. Can he repeat the heroics?
18.4
Tom Curran to Sam Billings, OUT! Billings is gone! At the wrong time he'd feel, but his side is still in the game because of him. He looks to clear long off, but doesn't get the desired elevation on this. Straight down the throat of Robin Uthappa who takes it this time. He had dropped him earlier, so will be happy he held on on this occasion. 19 needed 8 to win for Chennai.
18.3
Tom Curran to Sam Billings, SIX! That is a wonderful strike! Sam Billings, go 'head. He's made his entry in the Chennai team and making an impact already. Short ball, slower in pace, Billings pulls it hard over square leg. It's full and fast, over the boundary line for a biggie.
18.2
Tom Curran to R Jadeja, Seaming away from a length on middle and off, Jadeja pushes this towards short third man for a brisk single.
18.1
Tom Curran to Sam Billings, Fifty for Sam Billings! His 3rd in this competition. Has kept Chennai in the hunt so far, lovely knock. He works this down to fine leg and takes a single.

17.6
A Russell to R Jadeja, Dot ball to end the over. But 15 runs have come off it. Length ball in the channel outside off, Jadeja plays and misses. 27 to win in 12 balls.
17.5
A Russell to Sam Billings, Bumper from Russell, quite high but Sam still manages to connect the pull. Over square leg and a single is taken. Moves on to 49 with that.
17.4
A Russell to Sam Billings, SIX! It's not over yet! Not yet! Sam Billings is keeping hope alive. Length ball on middle and leg, Billings backs a long way away and lofts it over long on. Superb hit.
17.3
A Russell to Sam Billings, SIX! Absolutely unbelievable from Sam Billings. He's shown over time he's capable of such shots. But man, the execution is incredible. Low full toss on leg, Billings moves across, gets low and scoops it over the fine leg fence for a maximum.
17.2
A Russell to R Jadeja, Another short ball, on middle and leg, Jadeja pulls it away towards fine leg and crosses over.
17.1
A Russell to Sam Billings, Short of a good length in line of the stumps, Billings stays leg side and offers a firm punch down to long off for a single.

16.6
P Chawla to Sam Billings, Moves inside the line, tucks it away on the leg side and keeps strike with a single.
16.5
P Chawla to Sam Billings, FOUR! Billings continues with the charge! Full and flat on off, the Englishman stands his ground and slogs it over mid-wicket. Perfect placement, pierces the gap between the two men in the deep and gets a boundary.
16.4
P Chawla to R Jadeja, Drama out in the middle! All happening out there. Chawla bowls it like a medium pacer, short on leg, catches Jadeja on the pads who is taken by surprise. Appeal goes up, it's turned down. Ravindra takes off, is sent back and during this, Karthik misses his shy at the striker's end. Single is taken eventually.
Ravindra Jadeja comes out to bat. Interesting move with Dwayne Bravo sitting in the hut.
16.3
P Chawla to MS Dhoni, OUT! That's a good catch from Dinesh Karthik. Chawla has his first of the game. Quick again, outside off, Dhoni gets low to swing across the line. Gets a bottom edge and Karthik behind the stumps takes a superb catch. The umpire checks for the front foot no ball, but the leggie is fine. 48 runs needed to win in 21 balls.
16.3
P Chawla to MS Dhoni, Wide! Chawla will have to reload. Darts it down the leg side, wide called.
16.2
P Chawla to Sam Billings, Quicker through the air, short in length too, Sam comes out of his crease, swings and gets an inside edge to short fine leg. Close call. Quick run taken.
16.1
P Chawla to MS Dhoni, Extremely full on off, Dhoni digs it out towards wide long on. Billings took off for the second without even looking, but luckily for him, Dhoni sends him back just in time. Single taken.

Over 16 Chennai Super Kings 150/3/No

Strategic break signaled! 51 needed in 24 balls. The two men in the middle are capable of doing it. Kolkata have overs from key men remaining, but if Andre Russell's first innings' onslaught is anything to go by, we can expect fireworks to go down now.
15.6
S Narine to Sam Billings, Good running between the wickets. Billings works it in the vacant spaces in the mid-wicket region. Dhoni quickly calls for the second run and both batsmen complete it with ease. The 50-run stand is up with this too.
15.5
S Narine to MS Dhoni, Spinning in on middle and leg, Dhoni looks to play it on the leg side but it goes off his pads and towards backward square leg. Leg bye taken.
15.4
S Narine to MS Dhoni, Quicker and straighter on off, MS meets it with the full face of the bat.
15.3
S Narine to Sam Billings, Keeps it short again, outside off, Sam works it towards long on and takes a run.
15.2
S Narine to Sam Billings, This is good cricket. Good running between the wickets. Seeing Billings come down the track, Narine shortens the length. The Englishman works it in the gap in the mid-wicket area and with Dhoni at the other end, the two was always coming.
15.1
S Narine to MS Dhoni, Quick, flat and short on middle, Dhoni brings Sam back on strike with a pull to deep mid-wicket.
