Krishna conceded 22 runs in the last over leaving CSK for four.But there was more drama in the match as Sam Curran and Jadeja were dismissed by Sunil Narine before Deepak Chahar ended the match with a single. However, KKR left much to be desired under Eoin Morgan's captaincy as the decision to bring in Krishna in the 19th over will be debated. Morgan saw an injury to Annre Russell in his defence, but Narine could have provided more challenge for Jadeja in the 19th over. The win also meant that CSK remained unbeaten after the IPL resumed and were once again back at the top of the order with 16 points.Chasing a challenging 172, CSK were down and out at 142/6 before Jadeja took the responsibility on himself. 
 

KKR posted 171/6 as they were given a late flourish by former skipper Dinesh Karthik and Nitish Rana after the foundation was laid by Rahul Tripathi (45).CSK failed to capitalize on an aggressive start of 74 runs by Ruturaj Gaikwad (40 off 28 balls, 2 fours and 3 sixes) and South Africa's Faf du Plessis (43; seven fours).  KKR overtook CSK by sending both the openers back early.

Fast bowlers Shardul Thakur (2/20 in 4 overs) and Ravindra Jadeja (1/21 in 4 overs) did an impressive job to keep KKR going till the 13th over, when they were 93 for 4. However, 78 runs came off the last seven overs and KKR were able to make more than the fighting score largely due to Sam Curran (0/56 in 4 overs) scoring runs at the back end.Even Josh Hazlewood (2/40 in 4 overs) got a small stick to help KKR's cause. 


The stage was set by Rahul Tripathi (45 off 33), who hit four fours and a six, but it was the CSK bowlers who did not allow the KKR batsmen to either free their arms or settle down.Kolkata lost opener Shubman Gill (9) after a terrible mix with Venkatesh Iyer in the first over.One-down Tripathi and in-form Venkatesh Iyer (18) tried to revive the innings but the southpaw was unable to convert his start after Mahendra Singh Dhoni was dismissed off Thakur.Tripathi, who got his first boundary, a forceful pull shot over mid-wicket, also found a 'life' after the ball on which he was declared a 'no-ball'.In the very next over, he hit his first maximum at deep extra cover.

 Captain Eoin Morgan (8) also fell cheaply as he dismissed Du Plessis off Josh Hazlewood as KKR were in trouble at 70/3.Tripathi also fell in the 13th over as he was clean bowled by left-arm spinner Ravindra Jadeja as KKR slipped to 89/4.Then Andre Russell (20) hit Sam Curran for two fours and a monstrous six in the 15th over as KKR scored 14 runs. But Shardul Thakur pulls Russell back to his stumps.  Then Rana and Karthik's show took them past 170.
