IPL 2021 Match 15 Highlights – KKR vs CSK – A masterclass from Faf du Plessis ensured another IPL win for CSK, in high scoring thriller.
Alongside his opening partner, Ruturaj Gaikwad, and du Plessis got CSK off to an absolute flyer. The pair put on 115 from just over 12 Overs for the first wicket, with du Plessis eventually finishing on 95 not out.
CSK’s total of 220/3 proved to be too much for Kolkata Knight Riders in the end.
KKR made a decent fist off it in the end, eventually getting bowled out for 202 off 19.1 Over. This was thanks to an all out assault from Andre Russell and Pat Cummins.
Russell scored 54 from 22 balls, while Cummins was unbeaten on 66 from 34 balls. The truth is though, that the top order failings of KKR left the all-rounders way to much to do.
When Rahul Tripath got out to Ngidi, Eoin Morgan’s men were 31/5 after 5.2 Overs. The fact that they got anywhere near CSK’s total after that was nothing short of remarkable.
