IPL Highlights, KXIP vs CSK IPL score: Kings XI Punjab win by six wickets

KXIP vs CSK: Catch all the highlights from the IPL match between Chennai Super Kings and Kings XI Punjab.

By HT Correspondent | May 05, 2019 22:10 IST

Highlights: KL Rahul’s scintillating 36-ball-71 paved the way for a consolation six-wicket victory for Kings XI Punjab in Mohali on Sunday but not before CSK ensured a top-two finish with chance to play the first IPL Qualifier at their happy hunting home ground Chepauk. With nothing to lose in the final game of the season, Rahul, Chris Gayle (28 off 28 balls) and Nicholas Pooran (36 off 22 balls) were the key contributors in KXIP’s successful chase of 171 in in 18 overs. However CSK will be happy that with a net run-rate of +0.131 which is far better than Delhi Capitals’ (+0.044), the defending champions will remain in the top two with two clear shots at summit clash qualification even if MI beat KKR in the evening game.

17:30 hrs IST

Du Plessis misses a hundred

BOWLED! Du Plessis won’t get a hundred. You’ve got to feel for the man here. It was a brilliant innings and he deserved a hundred but it wasn’t to be. An absolute peach of a delivery from Sam Curran, nothing much that du Plessis could have done there. It was just the perfect yorker aimed right at the toes and it trickles onto the stumps after hitting the pads. Du Plessis goes for 96.

17:25 hrs IST

Good spell from R Ashwin

Would you believe it! Only 4 runs from 18th over and R Ashwin finishes his quota of 4 over with figures of none for 23, great performance from the KXIP captain. But CSK need a big finish here.

17:20 hrs IST

Raina falls for 53

OUT! Great thinking from Sam Curran, roles his finger over it and Raina hits it straight to Shami and short fine-leg. End of a very good innings from the experienced left-hander, he goes for 53, CSK have lost their 2nd wicket - both belongs to Curran.

How good has been Ashwin for KXIP this season? He has been very difficult to get away with and today once again he’s proving to be the most difficult bowler to score runs from. Only 5 runs from his third over. CSK:106/1 after 14 overs

18:59 hrs IST

FIFTY For Faf!

18:56 hrs IST

Good over from Tye

Good stuff from Andrew Tye. He did waste the review but Ashwin won’t be that disappointed from his Australian fast bowler. Only 7 runs from it. CSK 97/1 after 12 overs.

18:51 hrs IST

Close call for Faf

NOT OUT! Beauty of a delivery by Murugan Ashwin. He slows it up in the air and lands it full around off. Du Plessis stretches forward to play the slog sweep but it spins away slightly to beat the outside edge. Pooran is quick to take the bails off and appeals. The square leg umpire goes upstairs and the replays find Faf safely in.

18:44 hrs IST

10 runs from the 9th

16:31 hrs IST

Raina hits Brar for six

CSK needed that didn’t they and Raina even more. He was stuck in the middle and then finally decides to give the charge to young Brar and makes solid connection. The balls sails over the long-on boundary for a maximum.

16:28 hrs IST

CSK 42/1 at Powerplay

Ashwin’s first over goes for only 6 runs, one boundary from Suresh Raina in it. CSK have reached 42 for 1 at the end of six overs. A slow beginning? May be but that has been the CSK way so far.

16:22 hrs IST

Curran strikes

BOWLED! Beautiful from Sam Curran. That was the fullest delivery he bowled in the match so far and it pays dividends. Watson did not judge the length properly, it was neither too wide nor too short to cut and it crashes onto his stumps. Watson’s torrid time in IPL 2019 continues.

16:18 hrs IST

Good period for CSK

Just the start Dhoni and CSK were looking for. Watson and du Plessis have taken CSK to 30 runs after 4 overs by playing risk-free cricket.

16:08 hrs IST

Shami starts well

Good comeback by Shami after the boundary from his first ball. He gives away only 3 runs from his next five balls. But Watson and du Plessis are looking solid as ever. CSK: 14/0 after 2 overs.

16:04 hrs IST

3 singles and a four

Out walk the players

KXIP bowl first

MS Dhoni: Nothing really has changed. Last game in the league and it is to sort things out before the important phase. We are playing the same squad.

Pitch report

It is so hot, the curator is confidence enough to put some water on the surface two and half hours before the game. He says it is like ironing a shirt. It looks a good surface. This is the ground where it has turned the least for the spinners and Chennai need to adapt. You want to know what you are chasing at this ground - Pommie Mbangwa

15:17 hrs IST

Concern for CSK

Barring MS Dhoni and to some extent, Suresh Raina, the rest of the CSK batting order has failed to fire all season. The bowlers have been brilliant which is why they are at this position.
