As the above head-to-head table shows, CSK has won three of the last five matches between the teams. In the game held on Oct 7. 2020 in Abu Dhabi, KKR won the toss and batted first. They amassed 167 all out in their 20 overs thanks mainly to opener Rahul Tripathi’s 81 off 51 balls with 8 fours and 3 sixers.

For CSK, Dwayne Bravo bagged 3/37 in 4 overs, while Sam Curran, Karn Sharma, and Shardul Thakur snared two scalps each.

In reply, CSK could muster only 157/5 and lost the game by 10 runs. Opener Shane Watson top scored with 50 off 40 balls studded with 6 fours and 1 sixer. He was supported by Ambati Rayudu with 30 off 27 balls with 3 fours. Ravindra Jadeja’s heroic effort of 21 not out off 8 balls with 3 fours and 1 sixer at the end went in vain.

For KKR, all the bowlers chipped in with useful spells, and Pat Cummins had the most economical figures of 0/25 in 4 overs. Not surprisingly, Rahul Tripathi was declared player of the match as he was hands-down the best batsman in this game.
