IPL 2018 Match Highlights- KKR Vs CSK: Shubhman & Karthik Lead KKR Thumping Six-Wicket Win Over CSK
Kolkata Knight Riders avenged their defeat at Chepauk earlier last night with a thrilling six-wicket victory over table-toppers Chennai Super Kings at Eden Gardens in Kolkata. Earlier, Kolkata Knight Riders won the toss and chose to field against Chennai Super Kings. To start off their bowling, accusatory glances were darted at Shubman Gill after he dropped Chennai Super Kings’ skipper M S Dhoni in the 18th over near the square leg fence. To make it worse, the ball rolled out of the Kolkata Knight Riders youngster’s hands for a six.
But at the end of the match, the drop was forgotten. As record would have it, Kolkata Knight Riders made 180 for four chasing Chennai Super Kings’ 177/5. CSK had Shane Watson, Faf du Plessis get off to a strong start but unable to turn it into a big knock. Shane Watson pitched one short and Gill sat back and swat-pull the ball to ropes with minimal follow through of the bat. Timing. Sweet Timing. KM Asif send down a near 140 kmph thunderbolt but Gill stood tall and pulled over mid-wicket for a maximum. Still, 177 was a total good enough to stretch most other teams but on this night, it proved vastly inefficient to test the resolve of Kolkata Knight Riders.
