Shivam Dube played a quick knock of 28 in 17 balls and Moeen Ali only managed to contribute 10 runs. Ravindra Jadeja also failed to do much as he added 12 runs, but it was Devon Conway who batted throughout the innings and scored his highest IPL score of 92* in 52 balls with 16 fours and 1 six.

However, the moment in the last over of CSK innings was grabbed by MS Dhoni as he smacked back-to-back sixes off Sam Curran on the last two balls of the 20th over to take CSK to 200/4 in 20 overs. These sixes from ‘Thala’ was enough for the CSK followers in the ground to make deafening noises.
