5.40pm Just 19 off the last four. Imran Tahir and Shardul Thakur have been architects of yet another typical CSK choke. At the halfway mark, you got to believe Super Kings will be the happier side. KKR looked good for 180 plus at one stage, but lost Lynn, Rana and Russell in quick succession to trigger a slowdown of sorts. The reason: The grand old man of CSK: Imran Tahir. Join Gnasher in 10 minutes with the chase.

Meanwhile, India's World Cup squad is set to be announced tomorrow. Tell us your squads.

Chris Lynn with a chat with the host broadcasters: Surface was two-paced early on, got better towards the end. We had guys like Shubman and Russell, so I decided to go (take on Jadeja). Lost wickets in clumps, so that didn't help. We get two or three in the Powerplay, you never know.

Thakur to Chawla, OUT, magnificent yorker! Curved in late to scythe through the gap between bat and pad. Dhoni lobs the ball back to Shardul, who effects a run-out at the bowler's end as Kuldeep was nearly at the other end looking for a bye.

Shivam: "KKR have no clue how to make a good use of Shubhman Gill's capabilities. He is no slogger, yet he is being forced to be one. The only match he opened in, he performed wonderfully. Clearly indicates sending him.up the order suits him."

Thakur to Karthik, OUT, slices high in the air, but only as far as long-off. It's Faf the man again. Excellent change of pace from Shardul, went for a knuckleball that he's been working on for a while. DK doesn't quite get under the length, which means he gets more elevation than distance.
