Chennai Super Kings team has "moved on" from the controversy created due to an uncharacteristic outburst from MS Dhoni during the cliff-hanger against Rajasthan Royals and will have no bearing in today's IPL encounter against KKR, batting coach Mike Hussey has said.

The game can be streamed live on Star Sports Networks and Hotstar.

The 37-year-old is the team's highest run-scorer in this campaign, and on a pitch that is a dream to bat on against a bowling attack that hasn't quite clicked so far, MSD could be lethal. Raina, who remained unbeaten on 58, and Jadeja's unbeaten 31 ensured CSK finished on the winning side in the last over, although under less dramatic circumstances than against Rajasthan Royals in their previous game. However, Imran Tahir picked up 4 for just 20 to completely derail Knight Riders' innings.

Skipper Dinesh Karthik joined the opener Lynn and the duo added 42 runs on the board.

With the Eden surface not helping the spinners much, the spin-oriented attack too have struggled to pick wickets while the pace attack in Prasidh Krishna and Lockie Ferguson looked ordinary. Joe Denly and Carlos Brathwaite missed out.

Seamers: Deepak Chahar, Harry Gurney should be the two definite picks for the playing XI.

"SRH is a good side with some outstanding players in their ranks, and even though we lost the first leg against them, we have moved on from that result". Kolkata got off to a decent start but the opening partnership between Chris Lynn and Sunil Narine did not last long as Mitchell Santner provided CSK with their first breakthrough as Narine gave a simple catch to Plessis off Santner's delivery.

Though, Chennai Super Kings won the match by 4 wickets, MS Dhoni lost his reputation of being calm in every situation.
