"So, it is important to take the positives and try and make sure the mistakes aren't repeated in the coming matches", Karthik said after his team's five-wicket defeat. Russell continued to whack the CSK bowlers, as he completed his half century to set a monumental target for the home side. But Harbhajan Singh bowled beautifully to send back Narine (12). Robin Uthappa joined Lynn at the crease but in the sixth over, Lynn (22) is clean bowled by Ravindra Jadeja.
Suresh Raina looked uncomfortable while MS Dhoni struggled to get going and eventually fell for a slow 25. Not only did he smashed Sixes around the park, but his perfectly executed yorkers in the death overs of first innings helped CSK stem the flow of runs!
Kolkata - who had beaten Royal Challengers Bangalore in their opening fixture - were indebted to the West Indies all-rounder after their top order failed to build on a promising start. Yes, we did go for runs, and Kolkata did bat well.
He did play a few games in PSL before sustaining an injury only to get fit in time for the IPL. "I express myself in the dressing room but not in the dugout", he said at the presentation ceremony after CSK posted a five-wicket in over KKR in its first game at home on return to IPL. And despite KKR putting up a huge total in the first innings the host didn't let their fans down by clinching yet another thriller.
LaLiga: Gareth Bale's agent speaks on player leaving Real Madrid
Cristiano Ronaldo has scored in all six of his Champions League games against Juventus , netting nine goals in total. However, in the search of goals they also need to make sure that they are watertight at the back.
But credit must also be given to the openers as Chennai started really well with Shane Watson and Ambati Rayudu throwing the kitchen sink at the Kolkata bowlers. Uthappa punched the ball to covers and hesitated while taking the single allowing Raina, still one of the best fielders around, to effect a sharp direct run out.
Heaping praise on Billings, Dhoni also emphasised on the aspect of keeping emotions in check and not being too expressive on the field or at the dugout.
The nerve-racking six overs: CSK need 51 off 24 for a win and it's an intense situation. Billings continued his onslaught and it seemed the game will be over an over or two early.
Billings, one of the two changes made by Chennai, blazed 56 off 23 balls to carry Chennai to 205-5 with a ball to spare. CSK still needed 19 runs from eight balls.
Reed moves three clear at Masters as McIlroy lurks
Spieth faced a nine-shot deficit coming into the day and talked about having a rare, pressure-free round at the Masters . On Saturday, Woods turned in his first even par round of the week to gain a measure of momentum heading into Sunday.
KKR fans suddenly found hope in the situation but it was too late.
After Watson was dismissed by Tom Curran and Rayudu was removed by Kuldeep Yadav, Chennai maintained their aggression.
Instead, he took a calculative approach dispatching the bad balls over the ropes and playing out the good deliveries cautiously to nullify their threat. He was looking to hit the big sixes even as Lynn rotated the strike. "It's impossible for it not to kind of rub on to you" - Sam Billings.
