Despite the trio of <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/tag/Harbhajan-Singh">Harbhajan Singh</a>, <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/Imran-Tahir/">Imran Tahir</a> and <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/ravindra-jadeja/news/">Ravindra Jadeja</a> strangling KKR, neither of them was the star of the show. It was a pacer, <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/tag/Deepak-Chahar">Deepak Chahar</a>, who stole the limelight with a devastating spell in the Powerplay that pushed KKR on the backfoot as they posted a low 108/9. <p></p> <p></p>Chahar finished with excellent figures of 3/20 from four overs. 20 off his 24 deliveries were dot! CSK chased down the target with relative ease for a seven-wicket win. <p></p> <p></p><img class="alignnone size-full wp-image-826930" src="https://www.cricketcountry.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/04/PT.jpg" alt="Points Table 10/4/2019" width="628" height="247" /> <p></p> <p></p>Before the contest, KKR had taken the top spot with CSK breathing down their neck at second. However, post their much-awaited clash, the two teams have traded places with MS Dhoni-led CSK back at the top of the pile. <p></p> <p></p>They have won five of their six matches so far which has pushed their points tally to 10 and an early finish has also helped in improving their net-run rate (from 0.159 to 0.310). KKR, with eight points, have surrendered the top spot but they have the second-best NRR in the league which stands at 0.614 behind Sunrisers Hyderabad's 0.810. <p></p> <p></p>While CSK and KKR switched spots, others in the stands remained where they have been. On Tuesday, both Kings XI Punjab have a chance to, at least, replace KKR at the second spot, when they face Mumbai Indians at the Wankhede. <p></p> <p></p>Currently, they are at the third spot with eight points and if they manage to beat MI and that too with a crushing margin, they can also improve their NRR which currently is -0.061.While MI are fifth among the eight teams, they too can move to as high as second depending on how crushing their win turns out to be.
