After protesters had threatened matches at MA Chidambaram Stadium, IPL Commissioner Rajeev Shukla met Home Secretary on Tuesday and was assured of complete security cover for players and spectators.

Eventually Chennai Super Kings reached the target with one ball to spare.

Former India opener Aakash Chopra tweeted about Vinay's performance in the two matches for Kolkata Knight Riders in this IPL which did not go down well with Tiwary.

Political parties, farmers and even actors have been holding protests against the non-formation of the Cauvery Management Board and have also demanded that IPL matches should not be conducted in Chennai, as it would remove focus from the ongoing struggle against the Centre.

Earlier, it was a positive start for KKR too, after Dhoni won the toss and chose to bat. In 2013, while playing for the RCB, Vinay Kumar successfully defended 10 runs of the last over against Mumbai Indians as his team went on to win the match by two runs. That really could have been a match-winning inning, but CSK came up with something equally special to knock these off.

Sunil Narine (12) was the first to fall for Kolkata and was followed by Australian opening partner Chris Lynn, who was bowled by Ravindra Jadeja for 22.

At least 13 trading houses, including fugitive diamond merchant Mehul Choksi's Gitanjali Gems Limited, benefited under the modified scheme.

Suresh Raina then set the Chepauk alight with a brilliant fielding effort followed by a direct hit which saw the risky looking Robin Uthappa (29) walk back to the pavilion. They started with a solid 16 runs off the first over, a steady beginning, but the Super Kings needed more. In the sixth over, Vice Captain Uthappa tonked Jadeja for back-to-back sixes but just when he was looking good for a big score, the Karnataka batsman got run out leaving the team reeling at 81/4.

Last night Kolkata Knight Riders all-rounder Andre Russell got his hands on the Orange cap by hitting 88 and taking his tally to 103 runs in 2 innings.

Russell's brutal 88 not out off 36 balls launched Knight Riders to 202 for 6.

It's not often you smash 11 sixes and end up on the losing side - but that's exactly what happened to Andre Russell in Tuesday's IPL fixture between Chennai and Kolkata!

The matches will now be played in Pune, the home ground of the erstwhile franchise Rising Pune Supergiant, for which M S Dhoni played for the past two years.
