  • 22:47 (IST)

    IPL 2022, CSK vs KKR, Live Updates: FOUR RUNS!

    The much-needed frontier for KKR. Good shot from Billings. Smart shot of him. Flying short ball, thrown straight, Billings blasts it off the leg side.

  • 22:31 (IST)

    IPL 2022, CSK vs KKR, Live Updates: OUT!

    Santner gets Rahane. Floated on a back of a length and angling in Rahane. He sends it straight to Jadeja at midwicket. Big wicket for CSK.

    Ajinkya Rahane c Jadeja b Santner 44 (34)

    live score; KKR: 87/3 (11.4)

  • 22:26 (IST)

    IPL 2022, CSK vs KKR, Live Updates: OUT!

    Bravo strikes again. Rana claps it at Rayudu with his short, fine leg. Buried short, chest high short ball, Rana cramps when pulling. He has no control over it and finds Rayudu

    Nitish Rana c Rayudu b Bravo 21 (17)

    live score; KKR: 76/2 (9.6)

  • 22:15 (IST)

  • 22:11 (IST)

    IPL 2022, CSK vs KKR, Live Updates: EDGED AND GONE!

    Tilted and taken. DJ Bravo breaks into a festive mold. Much fuller, but Bravo hides it away from Venkatesh’s swinging bow. Venkatesh slashes and knick Dhoni

    Venkatesh Iyer c Dhoni b Bravo 16 (16)

    live score; KKR: 43/1

  • 21:56 (IST)

    IPL 2022, CSK vs KKR, Live Updates: FOUR RUNS!

    Another ramped up delivery. Rahane floated out, planting his front leg and pumping it half way. Is this the redemption of Rahane?

    live score; CSK: 34/0 (4.5)

  • 21:52 (IST)

    IPL 2022, CSK vs KKR, Live Updates: SIX RUNS!

    Rahane sends this to the first level past the square leg. Short and angled in the body, from over the wicket, Rahane gets into a strong position, controls the pull and sends the ball over the boundary. Expensive over.

    live score; KKR: 25/0 (3.6)

  • 21:46 (IST)

    IPL 2022, CSK vs KKR, Live Updates: FOUR RUNS!

    Glorious driving. Juicy half volley shipped with perfection. How about that shot from Venkatesh. Decent start this for KKR.

    live score; CSK: 15/0 (2.5)

  • 21:41 (IST)

    IPL 2022, CSK vs KKR, Live Updates: FOUR RUNS!

    Too high and outside of Deshpande. Rahane displays his class, leans in and strokes a drive between cover and mid-off. Find the limit with conviction.

    live score; KKR: 6/0 (0.5)
  • 21:25 (IST)

    IPL 2022, CSK vs KKR, Live Updates: SIX RUNS!

    MS Dhoni hits fifty and then Jadeja hits a six to take CSK past the 130 run. Great effort from these two. However, KKR will be happy to see them go after this comfortably.

    live score; CSK: 131/5 (20)

  • 21:12 (IST)

    IPL 2022, CSK vs KKR, Live Updates: SIX RUNS!

    Flies off the top rim for six! Dhoni waves off at this mighty high full throw that slips from Mavi’s hands, flying one fine leg into the stands. Mavi has also switched. Dhoni will try to give him another try.

    live score; CSK: 113/5 (18.5)

  • 21:10 (IST)

    IPL 2022, CSK vs KKR, Live Updates: FIND THE BORDER!

    Tries the Yorker but completely misses it. Dhoni uses his feet and wrists to perfection. He’s bragging this about cover for a border. The much needed runs for CSK. This is bad bowling from Mavi.

    live score; CSK: 106/5 (18.5)

  • 21:03 (IST)

    IPL 2022, CSK vs KKR, Live Updates: BORDER!

    Dhoni uses his pulse and pace on the ball to find the boundary. That’s magical wrist work! Good for CSK so far. 120 plus from here is a bonus for CSK.

    live score; CSK: 94/5 (18)

  • 21:00 (IST)

    IPL 2022, CSK vs KKR, Live Updates: FOUR RUNS!

    That’s vintage stuff from Dhoni. Hint of breadth and he scythes cutting back behind point. The third man had no chance. CSK needs more of this.

    live score; CSK: 88/5 (17.1)

  • 20:53 (IST)

    IPL 2022, CSK vs KKR, Live Updates: FOUR RUNS!

    Pushed to half way, and unfortunately for KKR it will be a limit as Chakaravarthy missed it completely. Very bad attempt. First frontier in 49 deliveries. CSK needed more borders.

    live score; CSK: 78/5 (15.3)

  • 20:47 (IST)

    IPL 2022, CSK vs KKR, Live Updates: ONE RUN!

    Short on off, he makes room to drive it deep into the ground. Not currently looking for CSK. Even 120 from here looks difficult. Urgently need fireworks from Dhoni and Jadeja.

    live score; CSK: 71/5 (14.3)

  • 20:30 (IST)

    IPL 2022, CSK vs KKR, Live Updates: GONE!

    Russell throws a heavy ball, Dube tries to pull it but gets it high off the bat and Narine takes an easy catch at midwicket. CSK five down now. KKR is loving this right now.

    Shivam Dube c Narine b Russell 3 (6)

    live score; CSK: 60/5 (10.5)

  • 20:19 (IST)

    Jadeja leaves Rayudu high and dry. Nowhere else but the pavilion. CSK is currently imploding.

    Ambati Rayudu run out (S Iyer/Narine) 15 (17)

    live score; CSK: 52/4 (8.4)

  • 20:15 (IST)

    IPL 2022, CSK vs KKR, Live Updates: OUT!

    This one pivots back from the center and leg to defeat Uthappa’s attempt at nurdle. Lightning fast punching from Sheldon Jackson. CSK in trouble.

    Robin Uthappa st Jackson v Varun 28 (21)

    live score; CSK: 49/3 (7.6)

  • 20:08 (IST)

    IPL 2022, CSK vs KKR, Live Updates: SIX RUNS!

    Rayudu goes again. Glorious time. He flattened that about extra coverage! Enough width for Rayudu to open his shoulders as he muscled that away

    live score; CSK: 47/2 (7.3)

  • 19:59 (IST)

    IPL 2022, CSK vs KKR, Live Updates: OUT!

    Umesh strikes again. Conway looked very much into going for the big hits. Tried to get out and go over the top, but it lobed off a thick inner rim, an absolute dolly to the halfway mark.

    live score; CSK: 28/2 (4.1)

  • 19:48 (IST)

    IPL 2022, CSK vs KKR, Live Updates: SIX RUNS!

    That’s all about the timing. Uthappa flies. Thrown over the deep midwicket for six! Cracking hit from the veteran. Shakes forward and grabs this ball down leg length.

    live score; CSK: 15/1 (2.2)

  • 7:41 PM (IST)

    IPL 2022, CSK vs KKR, Live Updates: FOUR RUNS!

    First boundary of the match and it comes from Robin Uthappa’s bat. He was short in height and cut back in the middle and the leg, he had the angle to finish it cleanly from his hip

    live score; CSK: 8/1 (1.4)

  • 19:38 (IST)

    IPL 2022, CSK vs KKR, Live Updates: EDGED AND GONE!

    Tilted and taken. Short and broad. Ruturaj goes for it unusually. Finds the rim and Nitish Rana pouches an excellent catch.

    Ruturaj Gaikwad c Rana b Yadav 0 (4)

    live score; CSK: 2/1 (0.3)

  • 19:32 (IST)

    IPL 2022, CSK vs KKR, Live Updates: NO BALL!

    Starts with a snappy back length banging into Gaikwad’s thigh as he springs back to defend. Unfortunately he has switched. Freestyle for CSK.

    live score; CSK: 1/0 (0.0)

  • 19:30 (IST)

    IPL 2022, CSK vs KKR, Live Updates: Match is about to begin!

    Ruturaj Gaikwad will open the innings for CSK, but he has a new partner this season with Devon Conway. Faf du Plessis, who opened last season with Gaikwad, will play for RCB tomorrow. IPL debut for Conway.
