Today’s IPL match result

Asked to bat first, Chennai Super Kings were in deep trouble as pacer Umesh Yadav tested the openers with his pace and swing and removed both the openers for 28 runs. Robin Uthappa looked good for his 28-run knock but was outfoxed by Varun Chakravarthy and brilliant stumping by Sheldon Jackson saw him back in the hut.

He along with skipper Jadeja registered 71 runs partnership and helped his side post a total of 131 runs on the board. 

Chasing the target, KKR openers Ajinkya Rahane and Venkatesh Iyer came out all guns blazing and smashed 43 runs for the opening partnership until Dwayne Bravo removed Venkatesh Iyer for 16 runs and then later in the 10th over sent back Nitish Rana for 21 runs.
