Rana got to his 3rd half-century of IPL 2020 off 44 balls. After scoring his fifty, Rana charged Karn Sharma in the 16th over for three sixes.
Lungi Ngidi struck in the 18th over to remove Nitish Rana for 87 and deny the KKR opener his first hundred in the league.
Dinesh Karthik (21 off 10) and Morgan ( 15 off 12) gave KKR the final flourish and scored 66 runs off the final 5 overs to take team's score 172/5 in 20 overs.
For CSK, Lungi Ngidi scalped two wickets.
