Chennai Super Kings beats Kolkata Knight Riders and won the Champions League Twenty20 Title at Bangalore here on Saturday.
Chennai Super Kings won by 8 wickets (with 9 balls remaining). KKR were not given a whiff during the chase. Suresh Raina came in early but played with the freedom that he often displays in this format.
Raina third T20 century meant CSK maintained control throughout the chase. KKR needed a big effort from their bowling attack after the loss of Narine, but Raina did not allow anyone to settle, dismantling their spin attack with precision hits down the ground. There were as many as eight sixes from him.. most of them looked like they were being hit in the backyard.. such was the ease. The target was not an easy one but they converted into a stroll in the park.
Earlier CSK won the toss and chose to filed first KKR set 181 runs target on board which was a very good target but their key bowler Narine was not there to strict them before the target. however KKR tried their best.
