9.54pm A bunch of records broken or equalled tonight: 
  • 1) Russell's 11 sixes was the most (in all T20s) for a batsman who did not score a hundred. 
  • 2) KKR's effort of 17 sixes also equals the record for most sixes in a T20 match at the Chepauk
9.42pm Andre Russell's 11th six has taken Kolkata Knight Riders past the 200-run mark. From a position of 89 for 5 after ten overs, the visitors smacked 113 runs off the final ten to set CSK a target that won't be easy to chase down. Can Dhoni and his men chase this down? We'll find out in ten minutes when the second innings begins.

Here's the big man himself. Russell says: "Special knock for me. I've been doing some work with Jacques. All he told me to do is stay still, so 'just stay still, and you'll be more focused on the ball'. Bravo's my team-mate, a good friend, but I enjoyed the shot that went over the roof. I've learnt a lot since my one-year absence. I've learned how to build an innings. It's a good wicket - ok, not the best wicket, but we have some good discussions in the team meeting. We'll defend this if we stick to our plans."

Thakur to Russell, SIX runs, finishes with a six! Overpitched outside off, but it's in Russell's slot. Goes down on one knee, and smacked over long off! KKR finish on 202 for 6

Thakur to Russell, 1 run, short on off stump, and Russell's pull doesn't come off. Bottom-edges it towards deep midwicket
Thakur to Russell, SIX runs, width offered outside off, and Russell leans into the drive. It's been tonked over the infield, and the ball lands way beyond deep extra cover. That's his tenth maximum!

Watson to Russell, SIX runs, through extra cover's hands! Full outside off, and Russell smacks this over cover. The man in the deep sticks his hands up, but the powerful shot goes through his palm. Brings up his half-century as well

Bravo to Russell, 1 run, good length just outside off, but tailing into Russell. Tapped off the back foot to cover for a quick run
Bravo to Russell, SIX runs, slower ball, and that's a low full toss on middle stump, but Russell winds up early for exactly that delivery. Gets his front leg towards the leg side and frees himself up enough to swing through the ball's line. Hit flat over wide long on
Bravo to Russell, no run, slower ball, on a good length. Pitches on off stump and goes over Russell's attempted cut shot
Bravo to Russell, SIX runs, that's out of the ground! Full on middle and Russell's spotted this early. Down on one knee, and swung over Bravo's head. A full 105 metres and even Shahrukh Khan needs to crane his neck to see that ball
Bravo to Russell, no run, goes short first. Pitches on leg stump, but Russell goes under the delivery. First-bouncer says the umpire

Thakur to Russell, 1 run, good length on off stump, and Russell mistimes his pull to cow corner. They jog across for the single
Thakur to Russell, SIX runs, two in two! It's a full toss on off stump, and Russell's not going to miss out on these. It's pumped over the non-striker's head and lands next to the sightscreen
Thakur to Russell, SIX runs, over pitched outside off, and Thakur pays the price for missing his length. Down on one knee, and muscled by Russell over long on. It's not off the bat's sweet spot, but enough behind it to clear the boundary. Thakur's knuckle ball did not come off

Bravo to Russell, SIX runs, over long on! Dropped in the stands, though. Full on off, in Russell's arc. Huge stride forward and makes a solid base to launch. Goes through with his shot thereafter, and it lands in the first tier
the ball gets a haircut. Bravo's ready to continue now

Watson to Russell, FOUR runs, overpitched wide outside off, and Russell drives this past extra cover! Couldn't get under the ball, but he's got enough power to hit through the ball's line. Breaches the gap between cover and mid off
