Scorecard summary
Kolkata Knight Riders161/8(20 overs)
Chennai Super Kings162/5(19.4 overs)

Quickly hop over to the other tab for more. Kane Williamson is back as Sunrisers Hyderabad opt to bowl against Delhi Capitals, who've won two games on the bounce. Plenty of changes there. Join Saurabh Somani and Ankur Dhawan on ball-by-ball commentary.

That's that from Gnasher and I. Hope you enjoyed it. Plenty coming up post-game. For now, it's goodbye. Cheers

7.40pm Stats wise, Eden Gardens been the worst ground for spinners in the IPL this season, but Imran Tahir, who is Man of the Match showed that can be overcome as he prised out four wickets to suck momentum out of the KKR innings. Sreshth Shah writes.

Gaurav Sundararaman comes up with gold again: All three of CSK's previous chases against KKR has gone into the last over. On all occasions, Jadeja has seen them home.

He adds: The only other instances of teams having 14 points after eight games are MI in 2010 and Kings X1 in 2014. Both finished runner up when they did that.

Chawla to Jadeja, 2 runs

backs away and punches this into the gap at deep cover to bring up the winning runs. Chennai Super Kings consolidate their position at the top. Seventh win in eight games for them. KKR slump to their third straight loss and have a lot of soul-searching to do. They concerns will multiply further as Andre Russell didn't take the field after hobbling off early in the chase.
