Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Dinesh Karthik will once again come head-to-head in the Indian Premier League (IPL) when Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) host Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in the 33 match of the cash-rich tournament.

Narine was adjudged Man-of-the-Match for his all-round show - 32 runs and 2/20 - as KKR secured a six-wicket victory with 14 balls to spare.

The 22-year-old finished with a spell of 1-26 from four overs in the match which the two-time champions won by 13 runs. Among the fast bowlers, they have Mitchell Johnson, Shivam Mavi, and Tom Curran. Gill played a pivotal role in the middle overs with a well-constructed half-century and his final flourish alongside Karthik, who scored an 18-ball 45, ensured that they reached the No.3 spot on the points table.

Only after the introduction of Sunil Narine and Kuldeep Yadav into the bowling attack, the run rate came dropped below the nine mark at the 10th over.

KKR won the toss and elected to field first with CSK choosing to use Shane Watson and Faf du Plessis as their openers. Narine then castled Rayudu (21) with a handsome googly in the 15 over to cap off a brilliant bowling spell by KKR.

Dhoni then pulled the team to a fighting total with Jadeja for company before the latter got out to Chawla in the 20th over. "Karthik said", Credit to the franchisee, they picked a lot of under-19 players. Our bowlers were confident today, and they wanted to bowl, so I was happy to put their batsmen under pressure. "It was a team thought that we might go with the spinners in the slog overs and we ended up quite well bowling with spinners in the 18th, 19th and 20 over", he said.
