CSK vs KKR, IPL 2023: Captain Rana guides side to 6 wicket victory, Knight Riders still alive in this tournament

Chennai Super Kings vs Kolkata Knight Riders

Chennai Super Kings (CSK) is hosting Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in match 61 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023.

CSK need to at least win one of their two remaining games to make their 12th appearance in the final four. Two in-two wins will help them seal a spot in the Top 2.

KKR, on the other hand, no longer has qualification destiny in its own hands. The side will be keeping their hopes in the hands of the other franchises.

Head to head: CSK 18-9 KKR with the Super Kings having won five of the last seven matches.

    Great finish from KKR. 5 off the 19th over and 9 off the 20th.

    But it was Varun Chakaravarthy and Sunil Narine who took two wickets each and Shardul Thakur and Vaibhav Arora adding one each to their name who curbed the Super Kings to the total.
