Sidelights:

Suddenly the points table is looking far more interesting. There is two or three way fight for the fourth place and KKR has suddenly reached on the third place, although will have to share the place with RR for the time being. CSK somehow is not looking the team which it was at the start of the season and as we know the team for all those previous six seasons. KKR beating CSK, with all due respect to the former, with two overs to spare is something which is suggesting that all is not well within the CSK ranks.
