After setting the eleventh edition of IPL ablaze with a thumping victory in the season opener, Tuesday saw Chennai Super Kings pull off yet another heist when they overcame Kolkata Knight Riders on the penultimate delivery of the match. It was, however, England's 26-year old Sam Billings who was CSK's "Man Friday" on Tuesday as he hit 56 off just 23 balls with two 4's and five towering sixes. The India discard bowled a forgettable final over where CSK needed 17 runs to win. After that, it was the Jadeja sign-off that had everyone in Chennai on their feet. A few overs in the death and batting as a team is something we are looking to improve.

However, Chennai quickly set about chasing down the Kolkata total.

But Billings and skipper MS Dhoni (25 off 28; 1x4, 1x6) kept their chances alive with a 54-run stand for the fourth wicket and after Dhoni got out Billings cut loose. This gave KKR a renewed hope, but Billings had other plans and stole the show.

Suresh Raina (14) sustained a calf muscle injury which hampered his running between the wickets with Sunil Narine sending him back.

However, during the CSK vs KKR match four people reportedly threw slippers into the ground as a mark of protest. Runs started to flow immediately as 18 runs came in the first over. He was looking to hit the big sixes even as Lynn rotated the strike.

Nitish Rana underlined his potential in his brief knock of 16 before an edge lobbed up to Dhoni.

KKR lose quick wickets with Uthappa run out by Raina and Rinku Singh being caught by Bravo off Thakurs bowling. At the end of 3.4 overs the half century mark comes up. What happened after that was top quality power-hitting from the West Indian as the crowd at Chepauk had to acknowledge a brilliant innings.

The first part of the game belonged to Russell who smashed a four and 11 sixes - equalling the record for the most sixes in an individual T20 innings of less than a hundred. KKR get their first wicket with Curran getting rid of Watson at 5.5 overs.
