Chennai Super Kings win by 5 wickets

KXIP will be wary of what happened in the previous game when things went went pear shaped in a matter of one over

Chennai Super Kings (CSK) captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni is happy to be back at the M.A. Chidambaram Stadium (Chepauk) after two years and giving the local fans a reason to cheer as his side clinched a thriller against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR).

The Top Billings: With 51 runs required from the final 24 balls and the game in the balance, it wasn't the ideal time for the set MS Dhoni to depart, but when he edged out it was left to Sam Billings to complete the mammoth run chase and he did just that.

England global Billings hit five sixes and a pair of fours en route to a 23-ball 56. It was Bravo who rescued them in the last game; today they were saved by Sam Billings and a Vinay Kumar no ball in the last over.

For KKR though, it was snatching defeat from the jaws of victory as Andre Russell gave a brilliant display of power-hitting as his unbeaten 88 off just 36 balls with 11 sixes helped KKR notch up a winning 202/6 in their 20 overs. During the match, there was tight security set up as about 4000 policemen guarded the stadium.

"Basically, you need to know that you'll lose some games, so it's important to take the positives and not repeat our mistakes", he added.

The Board is now assessing other cities to stage CSK's home games.

But Natural Resources Minister Jim Carr told BNN the federal government has been involved in the process every step of the way. Energy-based economies in most of the rest of the world are growing strongly without bailouts and government investment.

Russell smashed five sixes off his countryman Dwayne Bravo's two overs, one of which flew 105 meters and went outside the stadium. "CSK can play their matches at these venues", he said. He was supported by a steady knock from 25-run knock from Dhoni. He was looking to hit the big sixes even as Lynn rotated the strike.

Suresh Raina then set the Chepauk alight with a brilliant fielding effort followed by a direct hit which saw the unsafe looking Robin Uthappa (29) walk back to the pavilion.

With KKR slumping at 89 for five in the 10th over, Russell arrived to inspire the best partnership of the innings as he posted 76 from 46 deliveries for the sixth wicket - en route to the highest score by a number seven batsman or lower in the IPL.

West Indian showman Andre Russell has been going through a rough patch over the past one year with doping ban and then injury concerns leading into the IPL.

But there was no stopping Russell to hit Bravo for three successive sixes in the 19th over and finished off in style with another huge six off Shardul.

Karthik was adjudged lbw against Watson when the recovery was nearly done and despite a Decision Review System (DRS) review, he had to make the long walk back.
