   Match Scorecard  
Man of the Match : S Anirudha MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chepauk, Chennai  - 8 April 2011

CSK lost Vijay early but Raina and Anirudha tore in to the weak KKR bowling and by the time Raina got out CSK were 83/2 after 11 with COW of 53%. Despite a MSD and Anirudha fifty it looked CSK would end up with 140 till Morkel showed what he can do by taking CSK to 153/6 with COW of 9%. KKR have a strong batting line up and it was no surprise that they went off like a rocket as Kallis was particularly aggressive. When Bisla got out KKR were 64/1 after 9 with COW of 59%. Kallis went on to score a fifty as KKR looked set for a comfortable win as they were 111/2 after 15 with COW of 63%. But once Kallis fell KKR just imploded under pressure and fell 2 runs short as they ended with 151/7.
