IPL: KKR win toss, elect to bowl against CSK

Share

Cricket fans can look forward to interesting player battles in this match, with fellow Aussie cricketers Chris Lynn (KKR) and Shane Watson (CSK) locking horns.

Here's what many furious fans had to say about Jadeja, who isn't looking in good touch in the tournament, and his effort tonight. The biggest draw, though, had to be Shubman Gill. He followed it up with the bat by laying a solid platform for his teammates. "I think batting at No. 4 was a different experience for me". He played some breathtaking shots on his way to a 36-ball 57. Dhoni's innings was laced with four sixes and one four.

Gill's 32-ball half-century was studded with six fours, three of which came inside the first six deliveries he faced.

Gill made matters worse for the hosts when the U-19 World Cup winning batsman let the ball burst through his fingers at the square leg fence with the ball going for a six. "This is what I discussed with DK (Karthik)", Gill said. Undoubtedly, the pressure will be on home side led by Dinesh Karthik as KKR is already on the 4th spot and they won't want to slip down further.

However, KKR fought back in the middle overs as Narine and Kuldeep mixed precision with variety, while Shivam Mavi bowled impressively. His decision to make four changes against Delhi showed the team's depth and his faith in the bench-strength. Between Tom Curran, Andre Russell and Vinay Kumar, the three fast bowlers couldn't do much to prevent that from happening.

Meanwhile, CSK lost the match by six wickets against KKR at the Eden Gardens on Thursday night.

CSK's batting line up is studded with men in form.

Chawla ended the 48-run opening partnership by getting rid of Du Plessis with a googly that disturbed his stumps.

The move once again highlighted Karthik's ability to read the game, and try something out of the box. "This boy is special", Dinesh remarked in his post-match talk. It was crucial to see off the spinners and we rotated the strike well.

Ravindra Jadeja drops a sitter. In the second over, KM Asif produced a chance when he got Sunil Narine to drive one uppishly, only to be dropped by Jadeja at mid-off.

Gill was given good support by Karthik who produced a typically swashbuckling 45 not out off 18 balls, hitting seven fours and a six as Kolkata secured their fifth victory of the season. He has scored 286 runs at an average of 71.50. Dhoni's performance has been a huge boost to CSK's campaign this year.
