Chennai Super Kings enjoyed a dominant 34-run victory against Kolkata Knight Riders in a rain-affected Indian Premier League match on Friday.

The Super Kings won the toss and batted first in Ranchi, with umpires reducing the match to 17 overs a side after a delayed start.

Opener Dwayne Smith went early to Shakib Al Hasan, but Chennai then put on 70 for their second wicket, with Suresh Raina scoring 31 and Brendon McCullum making his way to a half-century

New Zealander McCullum eventually went for 56, but the Super Kings' innings was taken home by the unbeaten combination of MS Dhoni and Ravindra Jadeja.

They finished with a score of 148-3, leaving Kolkata needing to score at around nine runs an over to achieve victory.

The Knight Riders were in trouble early—sliding to 38-4 in the sixth over after Ravindra Jadeja took two wickets in two balls to derail their reply.

Robin Uthappa held firm for Kolkata, but when he went for 46 in the 14th over, hope was running out.

Yusuf Pathan was the only other batsman to get going for the Knight Riders. He scored 41, before becoming one of Mohit Sharma's three victims.

Jadeja took four wickets for the Super Kings, and the Knight Riders ended up well short of their target and with nine wickets down.
