On Wednesday (21st April) night, Chennai Super Kings (CSK) faced Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) at Mumbai during the 15th match of the IPL 2021. In that game, while CSK claimed their third successive win in this tournament, KKR claimed their third straight defeat.

KKR captain Eoin Morgan chose to field first after winning the toss. While CSK scored 220/3 (20 overs) in the first innings, KKR were all out for 202 runs in 19.1 overs as CSK won that thrilling game by 18 runs.

In the first batting of this match, CSK openers Ruturaj Gaikwad and Faf du Plessis set up the 115 runs partnership for the opening wicket. While Ruturaj scored 64 off 42 (6 fours and 4 sixes), Faf batted till the end of that innings and scored 95 not out off 60 balls (9 fours and 4 sixes).

In reply, KKR got a very bad start as they were down to 31/5 in 5.2 overs, majorly thanks to Deepak Chahar who got the first four wickets. But then Dinesh Karthik (40 off 24 balls) and Andre Russell (54 off 22 balls) just brought back the team into the game while outstanding Pat Cummins maintained that fighting spirit till the last moment of that game but he didn’t get enough support from the last batsmen.

While Deepak Chahar had bowling figures of 4-0-29-4 and Lungi Ngidi had bowling figures of 4-0-28-3, Cummins scored 66 not out off just 34 balls with the help of 4 fours and 6 sixes.
