Mumbai: Shreyas Iyer led Kolkata Knight Riders has marked their first win of the season after the team defeated Chennai Super Kings by six wickets. With the win, KKR also ended their 4-match losing streak against Yellow Army with the powerful knocks of Ajinkya Rahane and the bowlers.
Put to bat first, CSK managed to put 131 runs on board after MS Dhoni powered his side with unbeaten 50 runs while Uthappa and Jadeja scored 28 and 26, respectively.
“Dew will be the vital part in this edition. If you win the toss, you will look to bowl first. The wicket was a little damp in the first 6-7 overs and then it came on nicely in the back end of the innings. We were trying to take the game deep. Everybody bowled well given the dew. Bravo bowled very well,” said CSK new captain Ravindra Jadeja after the game.
