Bengal glovesman Wriddhiman Saha’s gutsy unbeaten 46 helped CSK to a competitive 152 for five on a slow Chepauk track.

The score was good enough for the bowlers who restricted Kochi to 141 for five despite Brad Hodge’s impressive effort (51 42 balls, 3×4, 3×6) to notch up their ninth win in the tourney to move to the top of the table with 18 points.

The IPL debutants Tuskers finished their campaign with 12 points from 14 outings.

The CSK juggernaut at home keeps on rolling as it was their seventh victory. Ravichandran Ashwin was again the best bowler with miserly figures of one for 16 from four overs.

It was Ashwin who kept the dangerous Brendon McCullum (33, 37 balls, 3×4) under wraps.

McCullum was key to Kochi making a match of it and the Black Caps glovesman being kept quiet was half the job done.

McCullum was finally out when he tried to give Shadab Jakati the charge but played all over it to get bowled.

Tuskers’ chance went out of the window after that although Hodge tried his best which was too little too late.
