Nitish Rana finishes the innings with four by midfield from DU Plessis and Thakur .Du plessis is truly gentleman of game,being hurt his leg still in ground , good intent to be on pitch.
The bowling of Chennai was not that great in the Powerplay.but they did manage to pull things back quickly after powerplay jadeja and Thakur taking Wickets and was economical also did not give away a lot of runs.
Sam Curran did not have a good return into the side leaked many runs and Hazlewood too leaded many runs which will be huge target for CSK to chase on.Those spells could well cost Chennai the game.
