Commentary

END OF OVER:
18 | 11 Runs | KKR: 156/2

  • Shakib Al Hasan46 (21b)
  • MK Pandey18 (28b)
  • MM Sharma3-0-28-0
  • BW Hilfenhaus3-0-38-0

KKR's clinical win means the table is split between the top four and the bottom four. Kings XI, CSK, RR and KKR are four points above the chasing pack.

MS Dhoni: "It was a bad toss to lose, the wicket became slightly better to bat on, the bowlers created the opportunities but the fielder couldn't take it. The wicket was slow to start off, their spinners bowled really well, Raina played another good innings, 10 or 15 runs short."

Presentation ceremony:

Gautam Gambhir: "I think we were pretty professional with the bat and ball, Bowlers restricting CSK to 154 was exceptional. Hopefully we can turn up in a couple of days and do what we did today. We have quality spinners in the ranks, and irrespective of the pitch they perform, and I want to mention Umesh and Cummins as well, they don't get mentioned as often as they should."

Man of the Match is Robin Uthappa: "I've enjoyed batting here on this ground, the crowd is fantastic, I have always done well here, sort of a lucky ground for me. The wicket was coming on well, the dew factor also helped it. I just wanted to play to the merit of the ball, when you play T20 you tend to lose shape technically, that's what I have been trying to avoid, to not lose shape in the first six overs." Uthappa dedicates the innings to "a very, very close friend Muffin".

That's a wrap from me. Our daily post-match video show will start shortly, stick around for that.

Sharma to Shakib Al Hasan, FOUR runs, crunch! what a way to finish the game, Shakib pummels that over the bowler's head to confirm an easy win, prompting the release of loads of purple balloons in the stands, CSK outclassed today and KKR get their fifth victory in a row

Sharma to Pandey, 1 run, slow loopy full ball outside off, Pandey pushes it to cover for one more

Sharma to Shakib Al Hasan, 1 run, shortish ball outside off, extra bounce there, Shakib was advancing down the track, an awkward flat-batted hit towards long-on

Sharma to Shakib Al Hasan, FOUR runs, drops it short and Shakib helps it along to the deep backward square leg boundary, no need to power the ball

Sharma to Pandey, 1 run, slower one outside off, Pandey goes for another mow, bottom edges it, and the ball is at his feet, Shakib wanted the single, Mohit collects and takes the bails off, but Shakib has done well to make his ground, diving full length

Sharma to Pandey, no run, short of length outside off, hacks at it and misses
