The Chennai Super Kings have five wins from six trips. They head into this match with the certainty of their greatest win in the IPL – by an edge of 97 runs – against Kings XI Punjab in their past match. After the batsmen had done their employment by setting KXIP an overwhelming focus of 193, CSK's spinners spun a web around the guests and strangled them. Only before that match, CSK mentor Stephen Fleming had communicated that the main thing that was yet to snap for his group was the execution of the spinners. R Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja addressed that call, and how! They bowled their eight overs, got five wickets and surrendered just 36 runs.
