KKR beat CSK by 10 runs. For a while, It seems that Kolkata Knight Riders have lost the game, but came back in the after Sunil Narine has sent Shane Watson back to the pavilion. Shane Watson and Faf Du Plessis was in a great form today, but gets a bit of bad luck, even though, Shane Watson hits a half-century. Everything was under CSK’s when 67 runs needed in 42 balls and left with 8 wickets. It was an easy chase but Sunil Narine And Varun Chakravarthy didn’t let them hit boundaries easily that built the pressure to the batsman like Dhoni and Sam Curran. They tried to hit but failed as the boundary are big in Dubai. You cannot hit without timing. Bad luck for CSK and Good one for KKR. The decisions made by Dinesh Karthik are not easily understandable. KKR’s pacer Shivam Mavi and Pat Cummins have completed their four overs before the 13th over. That was not looking pretty good at that time but gets a good result at the end. Sunil Narine gave a brilliant performance with the ball today. That’s where experience counts.
KKR beat CSK by 10 runs
If we talk about the KKR batting line up, Pretty good decisions were made today, Rahul Tripathi to open with Shubman Gill instead of Sunil Narine. Rahul got the man of the match award by hitting 81 runs in 51 balls. He has fixed his position in the squad now. But there is also a wrong decision today, in my opinion, sending Sunil Narine to bat at no.4 was not good when you have players Morgan and Russell. Except for Rahul Tripathi, None of the batsmen has gone above 17 runs. All of them appeared unbalanced today. They need to set-up their batting line-up order.
On the other hand, CSK’s openers in the last match performed brilliantly that won the match by 10 wickets against KXIP, But today Shane Watson hit the half-century where Faf du was sent back pavilion by Shivam Mavi. It is the perfect time to test the middle order of CSK which is found to be a failure. It seems CSK is missing the absence of Suresh Raina who has been ruled out of IPL 2020 due to his reasons. It’s just an interesting game for the fans.
