After facing seven-wicket defeat in the match against Rajasthan Royals, qualifying for playoffs has become difficult for the Chennai Super Kings.
Batting first, CSK posted a total of 125/5 in the allotted twenty overs.
Ravindra Jadeja scored the maximum for CSK as he played an unbeaten knock of 35 runs.
Chennai Super Kings Head coach, Stephen Fleming said that both factors including the conditions and disciplined bowling performance by opposition played a role in the defeat.
Fleming said, "It was a little bit slow in the start but we got good bowl.
It was just a difficult inning to get underway with.
We hang in there but obviously not enough.
We lost wickets, so we tried to stay positive and create pressure on the run rate but we just lost wickets throughout.
We struggled to get any momentum and put them under enough pressure.
They bowled well and we couldn't get them away."
