Piyush Chawla to Ravindra Jadeja. Googly back of a length, middle stump on the back foot driving, to deep cover for 2 runs, fielded by Rana. CSK have further cemented their spot at the top of the table thanks to a five wicket victory over KKR at Eden Gardens. Suresh Raina held the chase together with an expertly paced half century before Ravindra Jadeja finished the job with a couple of balls to spare. Earlier on, Imran Tahir was sublime with the ball in hand to pick up 27-4 and set up the victory. KKR will reflect that they didn't post enough runs despite an eye-catching 82 from Chris Lynn.

FOUR! Harry Gurney to Ravindra Jadeja. Yorker, down leg side on the front foot glancing, well timed past fine leg for 4 runs.

OUT! L.B.W. Sunil Narine to MS Dhoni. Off break length ball, off stump on the front foot working, hit pad to. Prolonged appeal and eventually the finger is raised, crucial strike for KKR. Dhoni asks for a review but it can't save him, the ball would've crashed into leg stump despite the large stride forward from the CSK skipper. We are all set for a thrilling climax to this match now.
