The two points from the washed out encounter against the Lahore Lions means the immensely popular Chennai Super Kings find themselves in a strange position. They were denied by the IPL champions KKR in the tournament opener, before coming back in style to demolish the Dolphins. The two-time IPL champions have six points from three matches. Splitting points with the Lahore Lions could come in handy or cost them a place in the semi-final. A victory in this match will not ensure them passage to the semi-final, but MS Dhoni and co. will be aware that a convincing victory is the best they can do before leaving the rest to destiny.
Scorchers did well with the ball to have Knight Riders on 125 for 6 but it was two successive late sixes again that settled the game. While it was Mitchell Marsh's blows that had won it for Scorchers against Dolphins, it was Suryakumar Yadav's strikes that did it for Knight Riders. Scorchers captain Adam Voges said he was proud of his young side for taking it so close against a powerful IPL team, but just close will not do it against another Indian franchise.
