Imran Tahir continues to be the go-to man for Chennai Super Kings Skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni.
On Sunday, April 14, Tahir's four-for restricted KKR to 161 after Chris Lynn's 82 threatened to take the hosts over 180.
The South African spinner had an evening to remember as he produced a career best IPL spell which helped his team win by 5 wickets.
Tahir was introduced in the 9th over and started his spell giving away just 4 runs.
In the 11th over, Nitish Rana fell to Tahir, Faf du Plessis taking the first of four catches on Sunday afternoon at long on.
A couple of balls later, Robin Uthappa followed as he smashed the ball to long-off. Du Plessis running in took a splendid catch.
The hosts then recovered and were 121/3 after 14 overs.
Dhoni then turned to Tahir who gave CSK another double delight.
First, Lynn slog-swept a flat delivery to deep square leg where Shardul Thakur took a good catch. Danger man Lynn walked off scoring 82 off 51.
In came danger man Andre Russell.
The big hitting Jamaican started with 4 and 6, went for another big hit, only to find substitute Dhruv Shorey at long-on.
Tahir finished his spell with another quiet over and returned with figures of 4/27.
KKR scored just 19 in the last 4 overs.
The 40 year old was the architect of yet another typical CSK choke. The Tahir juggernaut continues to roll along.
