Faf du Plessis –  the man of the big matches, once again played a pivotal innings for CSK and scored 86 runs to take them to 192/3. KKR fell short by 27 runs after starting well once again with their opener partnership adding 91 runs in 10.3 overs.

Venkatesh Iyer and Shubman Gill scored half-centuries each but once Lord Shardul broke the opening partnership, it was CSK all over KKR. They could reach only 165 runs in 20 overs losing their 3rd IPL final by 27 runs.

Lord Shardul Thakur once again proved why he is upgraded to the main squad of T20 World Cup 2021. He first dismissed Iyer to a smart catch by Jadeja followed up with dismissal of Nitish Rana who chipped straight to mid-off.
