Chasing 193 was always going to be tough ask and Kolkata Knight Riders couldn’t catch up with the asking rate despite fifties from openers Shubman Gill and Venkatesh Iyer. Chennai kept chipping away at the wickets as runs came down to a trickle in the middle overs, with Shardul Thakur dominating the wickets column. Sitting pretty at 91/1 after 10.4 overs, KKR lost wickets in a heap to be reduced to 125/8 in a span of six overs. Safe to say, Chennai Super Kings have one hand on the IPL 2021 trophy.
Gill’s a goner – trapped bang in front by Chahar. It’s 108-4.
Plenty for Morgan and Karthik to do if #KKR are going to get their hands on the 🏆#VIVOIPL | #CSKvKKR
