The sixth ball of the 20th over
There was a wave of joy on the field of victory, but there was still a picture left, because the match was not over yet, one run was still needed to win, everyone was stuck, what would be the result at the end? Jadeja again hit the ball with a charismatic shot and CSK won the toss.
With this win, KKR’s hopes of reaching the PK-off, where Chennai’s Hounsley is strong, have been surprised. Kolkata still have 12 points and are 5th in the points table.
