That’s all we have for tonight. Another nail-biter which ended with Chennai Super Kings on the winning side of things but pity they can’t make it to the playoffs. Kolkata Knight Riders needed to win this one to ensure they have the upper hand when it comes to making it to the next stage but now, things have turned little bit complicated for their liking. They still have one match to play and they need those two points.
We’ll be back again tomorrow for another crucial match between Kings XI Punjab and Rajasthan Royals, both teams in contention for top four spot. See you then!
“I think we played really well there. Our bowlers absolutely gave their everything. We have one game left, and still have a very little chance. We felt we were right in the game. Looking forward to the next game against Royals.”
MS Dhoni: “It was one game where the climax went in our favour. A lot of credit to the boys. This season, he (Jadeja) has been fantastic. He has looked to score every way. Ruturaj has shown the talent that he is. He came in and got positive with COVID. We didn’t have much time to have a look at him. I think it is very exciting how he has grabbed his chances.”
