In pursuit of a target of 221 runs, KKR faced a major fall, losing the top order of their batting in line with single-digit scores. Deepak Chahar Chennai blew past KKR’s main command with a four-wicket haul.
Only after the team’s middle order arrived, did the pressure begin to increase on the CSK bowling unit.
Karthik slammed 40 off 24 balls, totaling four fours and two sixes. He was sacked by Lungi Ngidi.
Meanwhile, Andre Russell scored a half-century (54 in 22 balls), but was unable to anchor his side’s pubs, losing his wicket to Sam Curran.
Australian manager Pat Cummins beat an unbeaten beat of 66 runs in 34 balls, but received no support, with KKR bowled out in 19.1 overs, having scored 202 runs. Cummins was also in four-four and six-six bags.
The win helped CSK climb to the top of the IPL 2021 League Table, with six points from four games. KKR, meanwhile, is sixth in the standings, with just one win of four games.
