Three-time Indian Premier League (IPL) Chennai Super Kings (CSK) openers Faf du Plessis and Ruturaj Gaikwad started strong as they reached 82 runs relatively easily, passing bowlers at will. Pat Cummins, Andre Russell, Prasidh Krishna, Sunil Narine and Varun Chakaravarthy were all treated with equal measure as Gaikwad and Du Plessis took their team past 80 runs after being handed a Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) captain in the first batting after he won the toss. CSK made one change, replacing Lungi Ngidi with Dwayne Bravo while KKR brought in Kamlesh Nagarkoti and Sunil Narine to replace Harbhajan Singh and Shakib Al Hasan. (LIVING SCORECARD)
