.
Scott Kuggeleijn to Sam Curran. Length ball, down leg side backing away Slog, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Dhoni. Kuggeleijn finishes the over in fine style after holding his nerve. Pressure was on him after two expensive overs to start but Dhoni trusted him and he was right to. Along with the spinners Chennai held Kings XI throughout the innings and the batsmen struggled to get any rhythm. KL Rahul and Sarfaraz both struck fifties but they left themselves too much to do at the end.

OUT! Caught. Scott Kuggeleijn to Sarfaraz Khan. Off cutter length ball, outside off stump on the front foot Slog, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to long on, by du Plessis. Brilliant comeback from the Kiwi on his debut. Changing his pace every delivery to keep Sarfaraz guessing. Maybe the only one which was close to being in the slot but as the batsman was late in picking it up he couldn't clear the fielder.

OUT! Bowled. Deepak Chahar to David Miller. Length ball, down leg side backing away Slog, missed to. Goodbye leg stump. Chahar goes full and straight with pace on and sends the pole flying back. Usually Miller would back himself to hit this but was beaten by a good change-up.

OUT! Caught. Scott Kuggeleijn to Lokesh Rahul. Off cutter short, outside off stump backing away pulling, top edge in the air uncontrolled to deep mid wicket, by Jadeja. Kuggeleijn's first IPL wicket and an important one. Runs have to be scored quickly and he has read the situation perfectly. Banging the ball in at no pace and Rahul is unable to generate the power needed to clear the rope.
