  • Chennai Super Kings beat Kolkata Knight Riders by seven wickets

Tuesday's contest between Chennai Super Kings and Kings XI Punjab witnessed a lot of breath-taking as well as memorable moments which will always remain etched in the minds of the spectators who were present at the MA Chidambaram Stadium. The moments include Ravindra Jadeja's sprint and leap effort to save a six which was struck hard by Andre Russell, skipper MS Dhoni's yet another faster than speed of light stumping to get rid of Shubman Gill along with Imran Tahir's early celebrations, Andre Russell's 'One Man Show' to stabilize KKR innings and Piyush Chawla's rolling catch in the second innings to get rid of Suresh Raina.

However, among all these, there was yet another moment which grabbed the eyeballs. The best part about this moment was that it was not about any on-field action. Fans at Chepauk witnessed CSK skipper MS Dhoni and the co-owner of KKR and the 'King of Bollywood' Shah Rukh Khan share the same frame. SRK was seen talking to Dhoni and it was a moment which was enjoyed by all the viewers. Even last year, 'King Khan' had posed with Dhoni's daughter Ziva.

Chennai Super Kings shared this priceless image on Twitter.

Chennai Super Kings beat Kolkata Knight Riders by seven wickets to reach the summit of the points table. KKR were put into bat by CSK skipper MS Dhoni and CSK gained the upper hand right from the start. The hard-hitting opening pair of Chris Lynn and Sunil Narine were sent back to the dug out early and even other batsmen could not offer much resistance as the two-time champions kept on losing wickets at regular intervals. Andre Russell single-handedly anchored Kolkata's innings with a blistering knock of an unbeaten 44-ball 50 at a strike rate of 113.64 including five fours and three sixes. His innings helped KKR reach a respectable total of 108/9 in their 20 overs.

In reply, CSK got to the target in the 18th over. Opener Faf du Plessis anchored CSK's run chase with an unbeaten 45-ball 43.
