Big-hitting Queenslander Chris Lynn fell for a five-ball duck as Kolkata Knight Riders slumped to a seven-wicket IPL hammering against the Chennai Super Kings.
The much-anticipated top-of-the-table clash failed to ignite as the visiting side struggled from the opening over.
Lynn was trapped lbw by Deepak Chahar and his departure led to a top-order collapse as the Knight Riders were reduced to 6-47.
That’s when on-fire Andre Russell once again delivered with an unbeaten 50 that helped his side limp to 9-108.

Russell now has 257 runs at 128.50 this season, and is scoring at a strike rate of 212.39.
Former Australia Test all-rounder Shane Watson clubbed 17 from nine balls to get the Super Kings off to a strong start in reply.
He departed soon after though, smashing Sunil Narine to Piyush Chawla at mid-wicket where he was caught.
But South Africa skipper Faf du Plessis’ calm 45 not out at just over a run a ball steered the Super Kings to an emphatic victory with 16 balls to spare.
The win consolidated the Super Kings’ lead at the top of the IPL table.
