RCB gets De Villiers boost for clash with CSK

Chennai Super Kings will be aiming to seal a spot in the play-offs with a win over Kolkata Knight Riders. Get IPL live score of Kolkata Knight Riders vs Chennai Super Kings here

On a tricky pitch, Mahendra Singh Dhoni (31 no off 23 balls) picked up Yuzvendra Chahal for some special treatment with three huge sixes as CSK knocked off the required runs in only 18 overs to move to 14 points from 10 games. "That is the kind of commitment needed in the field", he said. Jadeja, however, had a stoic look on his face nearly giving no indication that he had not only got a wicket, but a huge one.

Raina, who survived a run out scare, was caught beautifully by Southee, who tapped the ball to keep it in play while stepping out of the boundary at long-on and then returned to complete the formalities.

Giving credit to KKR spinners, Fleming said: "Their spinners were one of our main concerns".

Earlier, disciplined bowling by CSK and a few reckless shots by the RCB batsmen saw the visitors being restricted to a low total. It is high time the team management decided whether it should still persist with a struggling Faf du Plessis or replace him with Murali Vijay, who is more comfortable against spin bowling. We were not that good a side where we can have bad days and still get win. Chennai Super Kings have had a great season so far with only 3 defeats in the 9 matches they have played so far. At the home venue, KKR got the toss winning favour and chose to field first.

His Twitter following has grown, naturally, and he's been retweeting and replying to some of the attention. At this point, there are 3,056 supporters out of a goal of 10,000.

The 36-year old hit four sixes and one four, stitching together a 54-run stand for the fifth wicket with Ravindra Jadeja (12).

"Batting at No.7, I guess if you see the team combination, it's a team game so team comes first", he added. "Gill played the role beautifully". With the win, CSK soar back to the top of the points table. An underrated cricketer, Patel has been a proven performer in the IPL. They may be at the bottom right now but they can be even more risky.

CSK are benefitting from a large pool of players in form, especially Ambati Rayudu, who has been the architect of majority of their victories, while Shane Watson has been impressive at the top of the order, making handy contributions.

In fact, it was the last time during the two teams' face-off when de Villiers smashed a 30-ball 68 before he was dismissed by Imran Tahir.
