Kolkata Knight Riders jumped to 14 points as they thrashed Chennai Super Kings by 10 runs (D/L method) in the IPL match at the Eden Gardens on Saturday.

Chasing an easy 115-run target, Kolkata Knight Riders were 61/2 in 10 overs when rain disrupted again in the play.

Knight Riders suffered early shocks in the form of skipper Gautam Gambhir (16) and Eoin Morgan (5).

Spinner R Ashwin scalped Gambhir after he struck early with his first ball to dismiss Morgan and gave Super Kings a crucial breakthrough in the second over.

Electing to bat, Subramaniam Badrinath slammed quick-fire 41-ball 54 runs after an awful start to Chennai innings and added 65-run stand with Albie Morkel (30 not out) for the fourth wicket to help Super Kings set a decent 115-run target for the hosts.

Earlier, Chennai Super Kings skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni has won the toss and elected to bat against Kolkata Knight Riders.

The IPL match between Kolkata Knight Riders and Chennai Super Kings has been delayed due to consistent drizzle at Eden Gardens in Kolkata.
