CSK vs KKR Live Streaming IPL 2018 Match 5

It was a sea of yellow at the MA Chidambaram Stadium on Tuesday but there was no way anybody in Kolkata Knight Riders colours could be inside the stadium, unless he was a Shah Rukh Khan, of course.

Skipper M.S. Dhoni threw the ball to his most experienced player on the field, Harbhajan Singh.

The Aussie Pack: Kolkata's Chris Lynn found his groove with four boundaries from just 16 deliveries, posting 22 before dancing down and losing his off-stump to Ravi Jadeja.

With 101 required off 51 balls, Dhoni and Billings were excellent between the wickets, and punished the loose deliveries at will. Dhoni got into the groove in one Kuldeep over, while Billings, who was dropped on nine, showed little mercy towards Curran, as they brought the equation down to 58 off 30. Their partnership of 76 ended when Shane Watson trapped Karthik leg-before. Although spin kept Russell quiet initially, he targeted Bravo, his Windies teammate, off whom he smashed seven sixes across three overs.

All the best of Nonaka! Masazo Nonaka, a 112-year-old Japanese national, has been recognized as the world's oldest living man. Jiroemon Kimura , a Japanese who died in 2013 at 116, was recognized by Guinness as the longest-lived man in history.

Vinay Kumar, who was hit for a six off the first ball by Bravo, was left distraught as Jadeja sealed off the match as he lofted Vinay over the ropes with four runs needed off the last two balls.

From that point, CSK's surge took a dip and the asking rate started shooting up. And Watson, who opened the innings alongside Ambati Rayudu, gave them that.

The England worldwide hit five sixes and a pair of fours before holing out off compatriot Tom Curran (2-39), leaving the score on 184-5 and CSK needing 19 from eight. Talking at the toss, CSK captain MS Dhoni said, "We always like to chance whenever we get a chance". Billings took calculated risks and played some big shots under pressure.

Sportskeeda takes a look at the five unnoticed things from the match which cricket lovers might have missed amid fireworks which had a considerable effect on the end result of the game for both sides. The apex court also directed the government to come up with a draft scheme by May 3. Let us know that under the leadership of KKR captain Dinesh Karthik, KKR will want to conquer the CSK with 11 players. Billings continued his onslaught and it seemed the game will be over an over or two early.

The match was not over though with Billings continuing his big-hitting before Curran got his revenge on his worldwide teammate as the England batsman holed out to Uthappa at long off. After scoring 56 runs off 23 balls (including two fours and five sixes), Billings had to go. Uthappa punched the ball to covers and hesitated while taking the single allowing Raina, still one of the best fielders around, to effect a sharp direct run out. Dwayne Bravo came in to bat and he and Jadeja took the total to 186/5 in 19 overs.
