Fall of wickets: 1-1 (Mayank Agarwal, 0.4 ov), 2-15 (KL Rahul, 2.5 ov), 3-19 (Chris Gayle, 4.2 ov), 4-19 (Nicholas Pooran, 4.4 ov), 5-26 (Deepak Hooda, 6.2 ov), 6-57 (Jhye Richardson, 12.1 ov), 7-87 (Murugan Ashwin, 16.5 ov), 8-101 (M Shahrukh Khan, 19.1 ov)
0.4 to MA Agarwal, Chahar castles Agarwal with a beauty and lets out a big roar. Fuller than a good length, starts around middle stump, and nips away just enough to ping the top of off stump. The late shape opens up Agarwal and messes with his balance. There's the early wicket for CSK. Agarwal wafts to the leg side and misses. He goes for a two-ball duck. 1/1
4.2 to CH Gayle, Jadeja shows Gaikwad how to take catches. The Boss is gone now. Knuckle-ball variation, finishes around off stump. Gayle is early into the drive, and ends up scooping it in the air. Jadeja swoops to right from short cover, dishes out a full-length dive, and hangs onto the ball even as he lands on his elbow. He makes it look ridiculously easy. 19/3
4.4 to N Pooran, This is a cracker of a powerplay for CSK! Pooran holes out for a duck. Shoulder-high short delivery outside off, gets big on Pooran. He looks away, takes his eyes off this lifter, and pulls it straight into the lap of Thakur at long leg.. 19/4
6.2 to DJ Hooda, chipped straight to mid-off! Such a soft dismissal this one. Regular swinging delivery lands on the seam outside off, hint of away swing and Hooda merely gives some catching practice to du Plessis. 26/5
19.1 to M Shahrukh Khan, No fifty for SRK, he holes out to Jadeja. Banged in short and outside off, offcutter once again from Curran, asks SRK to manufacture his own pace. SRK pulls and ends up splicing it in the air off a top edge. Jadeja runs in from deep midwicket, then runs to his left, and snaffles it. 101/8
12.1 to JA Richardson, Moeen Ali darts a slider, fired full on middle, seems to gather more pace after hitting the pitch. It's nowhere near short enough for the pull. Richardson misjudges the length and searches for the pull. He misses it altogether. Moeen hits the stumps. 57/6
16.5 to M Ashwin, Ashwin holes out to Faf in the infield. He can't clear mid-off. Back of a length and holds its line outside off, Ashwin is a bit early into the loft, he picks out one of the best fielders in the CSK side. 87/7

Fall of wickets: 1-24 (Ruturaj Gaikwad, 4.6 ov), 2-90 (Moeen Ali, 12.3 ov), 3-99 (Suresh Raina, 14.2 ov), 4-99 (Ambati Rayudu, 14.3 ov)
14.2 to SK Raina, Raina jumps across off stump this time, Shami bangs a bouncer on middle, climbing towards the shoulder. Raina looks away, takes his eyes off the ball, and flaps a pull behind to Rahul. 99/3
14.3 to AT Rayudu, two in two for Shami! Banged in short and outside off, Rayudu advances down the track. He aims to pump it over covers, instead he slices it squarer. Pooran runs in from point and pouches it. They check for a possible no-ball for height, but this was fine. To add to it, Raina had stepped out. 99/4
4.6 to RD Gaikwad, Gaikwad picks out Hooda at deep midwicket. Arshdeep puts him out of his misery. Banged in short and outside off, shoulder-high offcutter, Gaikwad drags a pull against the angle and hits it straight into the lap of Hooda. 24/1
12.3 to MM Ali, M Ash comes back and has Moeen holing out to SRK at deep midwicket. Another googly, pushed through on off, Moeen has a slog-sweep at it even before it turns. He picks out the outfielder. 90/2
