Before calculating important things I need to tell you that If a team is all out without completing their 20 overs You have to consider it as 20 overs If in case a team chases the target in less than 20 overs, You have to consider the ball in which they finished the chase.

Add all runs scored by CSK one one side And add all the runs given by CSK (With Overs)

You will get a value, dividing it by number of overs you will get one more value Subtract both these values and you will get the Net Run Rate And we too got the same value.
