Match Preview

KKR’s IPL 2024 journey kicked off with three victories out of three, a narrow triumph against the Sunrisers, but their performance against RCB at the Chinnaswamy Stadium and Delhi Capitals at Visakhapatnam was outstanding. The decision to utilize Sunil Narine as an opener has once again proven to be a stroke of genius,

Chennai Super Kings has secured two wins out of four matches. CSK won the first two matches by defeating RCB by 6 wickets and GT by 63 runs but in the previous match, CSK suffered defeat from DC and SRH.

Kolkata Knight Riders Innings

Salt is dismissed on the first ball of the match by Tushar Deshpande. Narine initiates another rapid start, but Jadeja break the partnership between Raghuvanshi and Narine, followed by Venkatesh Iyer in the eighth over.

Theekshana claims Ramandeep’s wicket for 13 in the 11th over. Jadeja concludes his spell with figures of 3/18, while Theekshana finishes with figures of 1/28, marking an impressive comeback for CSK.

Despite KKR being 50/1 after five overs and the pitch initially showing no signs of difficulty, Jadeja’s entry changes the game’s dynamics. Three quick wickets alter the pitch dramatically, favoring spinners and forcing Mustafizur to resort to fast off-spin towards the end.

KKR batters struggle to find momentum. Shreyas Iyer manages to score 34 off 32 balls. KKR managed to score 137/9.

Ravindra Jadeja and Tushar Deshpande each took three wickets. Mustafizur Rahman claimed two wickets while Maheesh Theekshana with one.

Chennai Super Kings Innings

They absolutely relish playing at Chepauk, especially when the pitch behaves as it did today, with the ball holding and gripping.

CSK had no trouble chasing, knowing they could afford to pace themselves since the target wasn’t daunting.

This luxury was absent for KKR, who had to adapt to the conditions on the fly, unsure of what score would be competitive. Unlike previous matches at this venue, the pitch wasn’t conducive to high scores of 180-200, making ball-striking challenging.

However, these conditions suited Ruturaj Gaikwad perfectly, allowing him to take his time and rely on timing rather than power. With dew on the outfield adding to their advantage, CSK comfortably cruised to victory without much exertion, putting an end to KKR’s unbeaten streak in the tournament.
