Raina, Jadeja lead CSK to 5 wicket win

A fuming MS Dhoni has been docked 50 per cent of his match fee for a code of conduct breach which saw the skipper walk onto the field to dispute a no-ball call during the Chennai Super Kings' match against Rajasthan Royals. They lost their previous match against Chennai. KKR vs CSK live streaming will be available on Hotstar and Jio TV.

"Everyone's human. What stands out for me is his competitiveness, which is remarkable", Delhi Capitals advisor Ganguly told reporters at the end of their seven-wicket win over Kolkata Knight Riders at the Eden Gardens on Friday.

Dhoni is also the team's highest run getter.

In reply, CSK's run chase also followed a similar pattern as the KKR spinners controlled the middle overs, but Suresh Raina's first half-century of the 2019 VIVO IPL ensured the visitors were home.

Bowlers: For KKR, Piyush Chawla, Kuldeep Yadav, Lockie Ferguson, Prasidh Krishna are the top picks among bowlers while for CSK, Deepak Chahar, Harbhajan Singh, Imran Tahir, Scott Kuggeleijn will lead the bowling unit.

Here is how Twitter hailed the veteran as he won the match for CSK. In reply, the Super Kings started well with Faf du Plessis hitting Harry Gurney for 4 boundaries in the third over.

Then came out the CSK's skipper MS Dhoni, who along with Raina provided his team some momentum. Whether that's indicative of an increased combative streak or a direct outcome of the situations he found himself in, one can't tell, but what can't be denied is his form. Tahir, who was the last bowler to be brought on by captain Dhoni, took 4-27 in his four-over spell to slow down Kolkata's run-rate.

Known for maintaining his cool attitude and calm demeanor, not very often does a person like Mahendra Singh Dhoni gets angry on field.

Kolkata Knight Riders, who have now lost three matches on the bounce, including both their fixtures against CSK, began their innings in blazing fashion thanks to the return of regular opener Chris Lynn, who top-scored with 82 from 51 balls. "So, so he's a huge asset to any team that he plays for".

It was Tahir again, first dismissing Lynn, caught at deep square leg by Shardul, and four balls later silencing the crowd by sending Russell back to the hut with substitute Dhruv Shorey taking an excellent catch at long on. One good sign is Shubman Gill hitting form after he was asked to open the batting.
