CSK win by 6 wickets, Jadeja hits a last-ball six

Curran faces. Nagarkoti bowls. A dot ball to start. Curran can only get 3 off the next two. Which gets Jadeja on strike with 7 to get off the the last 3 balls. A dot ball. 7 needed off 2. Then Jadeja smashes a six over midwicket! Scores tied with one ball left. KKR bring the field in for the last ball. And the last ball is a six! CSK win off the last ball. By 6 wickets.

Jadeja attacks Lockie

Lockie Ferguson has had a horror day today. The 19th over compounds it. Jadeja attacks him without mercy. 20 runs off the over. The balls slips from Ferguson's hands and Jadeja hits a four, then hits a six off the free hit and another four to follow. That has brought the equation down to 10 needed off the last over. Which Nagarkoti will have to bowl. CSK 163/4 after 19

Chakravarthy's 13th over is also tight. 9 runs off it. Rayudu attacks Pat Cummins as he is brought back in the 14th over. Two extravagant fours on either side of the wicket.

Rana pulls n finds the gap for four as Jadeja bowls the 15th. 9 runs from his over. KKR could do with some big shots now. And wow! That's exactly what Rana does!

And the leg spinner does the trick. Goes through Gill's defence, who was in no position to play the shot. KKR send in Narine at 3. Who starts off his business with a six! KKR 60/1 after 8

20:00 (IST)29 Oct 2020
Rana unleashes on Santner
