This means CSK will play the first qualifier at home in Chennai and will get two chances to make it to the final.After Faf du Plessis (96) and Suresh Raina (53) helped Chennai Super Kings to 172 for 5 off 20 overs, KXIP needed to gun down the target in 14.2 overs. And it looked possible at one stage with KL Rahul going great guns – he had smashed Harbhajan Singh for 24 runs to bring up a 19-ball 50.IPL 2019: MI vs KKR live cricket scoreHowever, Harbhajan Singh dismissed KL Rahul and Chris Gayle off successive deliveries to pull things back a little. KXIP eventually got home in 18 overs and it meant CSK would get two shots at the title clash.MS Dhoni lauded KL Rahul for his aggressive innings on a pitch which he described as not easy to bat on.”You need to give the credit to them. It was not an easy wicket. With 3 spinners, it was difficult to manoeuvre in the first 6 overs,” Dhoni told the host broadcaster after the match.”But KL Rahul batted really well, was ably supported by Chris Gayle and then Pooran towards the end was good with his lusty hits. It was a really good batting effort from their side.”advertisementMS Dhoni said CSK tried everything they could but admitted not much worked on Sunday. However, he praised his bowlers for the way they came back after the assault from KL Rahul.”We did whatever we could, it didn’t work a lot. Quite happy with the way we bowled, despite giving a few runs at the start… That’s something you have to keep in mind, If you can’t win a game, you make sure you get the opposition to get the runs in the most number of overs. you have to quickly adapt, learn and re-assess,” Dhoni said.Also Read | KL Rahul attacks Harbhajan Singh to hit 19-ball fiftyAlso Read | Faf du Plessis hits career-best 96 as CSK batsmen peak at the right timeAlso See:For sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.
