IPL 2019: 23rd Match, Chennai Super Kings vs Kolkata Knight Riders

Indian Premier League (IPL) 2019-Kolkata Knight Riders did not show any hard performance against Chennai Super Kings on Tuesday. On the worst pitch of MA Chidambaram stadium, the visitor could score 108/9 in 20 overs. The Champions CSK reached 111/3 in 17.2 overs and won an easy win and got the top spot in the points table. Faf du Plessis not out 43 not out

Russell, who was known to play with the bowlers in the death overs, joined his team in the ninth over when the team’s score was 44/5. He handled his luck and played till the end of the innings (44balls 50 runs- 5×4, 3×6).

The CSK bowlers kept a stern stand and drew the batsmen towards their doom. The KKR’s top order was playing across the line, while in the lower order, CSK’s Harbhajan Singh, Imran Tahir and Ravindra Jadeja’s was playing with the spin ball.

After opting to bowl by MS Dhoni, the home team did not have to wait long to celebrate. Three wickets in the first three overs with only nine runs.

Opener Chris Lynn tried straight delivery on Deepak Chahar’s ball before falling for LBW. With a slight jump on the dull track, more power was needed than power, but the approach of KKR batsmen was not ideal anywhere.

As soon as Harbhajan Singh gave the ball air, Sunil Narine got trapped in an attempt. What resulted was a ball hit on bat top-edge and a catch by Chahar.  Young Indian batsman who did not learn from Lynn’s dismissal and did the same mistake by trying to hit low delivery ball of Chahar, as a result, Nitish Rana was dismissed at 11 runs.

After the top order batsmen went, KKR captain Dinesh Karthik and Robin Uthappa needed to revive the innings. But later Chahar and Tahir were out on the ball.

Russell played a very unruly knock. He waited for his chance and even got the lifeline in the eighth over when Harbhajan left a catch on the ball of Imran Tahir.

Dhoni’s bowlers target batsmen at the other end. Jadeja, Tahir, and Harbhajan trapped last four players and KKR had the only wicket left in which Russell play with tailender player Harry Gurani for the last three overs.

Russell hit many balls and even missed a few deliveries. In last over, he got his half-century with two fours and a six against Scott Kualjeana and KKR team crossed the 100-run mark.

After getting wickets of CSK opener Shane Watson and number three Suresh Raina in the first three overs, Narayan said it was not enough for a team. Faf du Plessis and Ambati Rayudu scored 46 runs, which was devoid of any catchy shot and kept the CSK in control. Although Rayudu went from the pitch when CSK was at 81runs, du Plessis and Kedar Jadhav ensured that the delay will not come.


DC vs SRH Match at Kotla: Sunrisers Hyderabad go top of table with five-wicket win

In the last match, Feroz Shah Kotla’s pitch did not prove to be very helpful for the batsmen, and after getting enough help to spinners from turf, it seemed that the batsmen were struggling to time the ball in right way.

It was quite clear in the innings of the Delhi capitals and except for Shreyas Iyer and Chris Morris, all other cricketers fought against Mohammad Nabi and Rashid Khan and the host team managed to put up only 129-8 in 20 overs.

However, when Run Chase’s innings came, then Johnny Bairstow made batting very easy on the same pitch.

England’s international players, who made their first IPL century against Royal Challengers Bangalore in the previous match, started the innings on a positive note with a boundary in the first over, followed by Sandish Lemichane’s ball with six and fours. In the second over to give Sunrise a fantastic start.

In this attack, he slammed Chris Morris for four boundaries in the fourth over and again, took three runs on Kagiso Rabada after two overs. Jonny Bairstow (wk) looked very comfortable against all the bowlers and he was mainly working in the borders, as a result, he hit 9 fours and 1 six.

He reached 48 runs in 28 deliveries but missed his fifty. He missed Rahul Tawatia’s straight delivery and became an LBW but his innings was enough to guide SRH to victory.

Sunrisers’ Powerplay Strangle

Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Nabi have performed well in IPL for some time.  After putting 2 fours in the first over of Bhuvneshwar Kumar by Prithvi Shaw, Bhuvneshwar took a wicket of Prithvi Shaw in the second over. Nabi showed left-hander batsman Shikhar Dhawan, and Rishabh pant the way to the pavilion.

Nani opened his wicket account in the match with Dhawan, who made 12 run off 14 balls in the powerplay, with the Delhi capital having only two fours and one six. At that time, the Capitals were 36 for 2 and thereafter their run rate proceeded. Bhuvneshwar delivers nine dots in his first two overs and the Nabi managed to win over Sunrisers by winning 3-0-18-1 in the powerplay.


IPL 2019: Jasprit Bumrah brilliance, umpire howler hand MI nervy win over RCB

Bumrah star for Mumbai Indian and man of the match:-

Jaspreet Bumrah was playing the trick for MI because he took the four wickets yesterday. Colin de Grandhome was caught out by Krunal Pandya and AB de Villiers was playing in the middle of the ground as the last hope to win RCB. It was the turning point of the match because Bumrah took one wicket and got only 5 runs.

Jasprit Bumrah, Man of the Match: He focuses only on the situation in front of him and backs himself. His plan against every batsman today was that it would be good. It ends by saying that its shoulder is perfectly fine.

The first innings was largely revolving around the captain Rohit, he was in good touch and was looking for a big score, but got out against the run-out. Yuvraj was also playing fine hit, but Chahal was dismissed him after three consecutive sixes. Wickets kept falling and Bangalore has come back, but Hardik’s latest cameo ensured that match will be tough for a host team at the Chinnaswamy.

Kohli dismissed after completing a milestone history:-

Virat Kohli completed 5000 IPL runs and he became only the second player in the history of the tournament to achieve this achievement after Suresh Raina. But just after doing so, Kohli lost his concentration and was bowled out of Bumrah, which was caught by midwicket by Hardik Pandya. Kohli was out on 46, and RCB lost their third wicket.

Hello and welcome to our blogs of IPL 2019, Delhi capitals and Chennai Super Kings match results. Finally, it is easy for CSK to win against Delhi capitals in Kotla. Shane Watson brought him down to pursue the goal of 148 runs. Suresh Raina and Kedar Jadhav played the knockout and also ensure that there were not many hiccups on the way.

Amit Mishra gave the ball to CSK from Delhi and took two important wickets but eventually proved to be difficult for the domestic team by making 147 runs because they tasted the first defeat of the tournament so far and went to second place while CSK returned to number one.

Dhoni’s strategy and Bravo’s amazing

The senior opener once again played the role of 51 anchors in 47 balls, including seven fours but unfortunately, the front team was Dhoni, who sent Bravo to bowl to slow the match’s score and took Dhawan’s wicket. After failed to accelerate during the last over, the domestic team had to leave the ground as a fighting score of fewer than 180 runs

Shardul Thakur and Imran Tahir had better days on the field for CSK. Harbhajan Singh did perform normally but Ravindra Jadeja did better – two spinners helped Chennai to put pressure on Delhi in the middle overs.

Star’s turn was Dwayne Bravo who took 3/33 in 4 overs. They removed dangerous Rishabh Pant and Colin Ingram in three balls before Shikhar Dhawan was removed.

Now no one will call them the oldest team!

Despite being the oldest team, their experience is above the rest. The oldest team attacked Prithvi Shaw and Rishabh Pant. Both the youngsters were dismissed in the ’20s and Shikhar Dhawan was slow to score 51 runs.

Three days earlier, Chennai had chased 71 runs, but they took their time on a dull pitch. Tonight was different. They quickly lost Ambati Rayudu but Shane Watson (44) and Suresh Raina (30) laid the foundation for chasing with Cameo. Both fell to Amit Mishra. But both Watson and Raina did a commendable job – when Raina left in the 11th over, CSK needed 50 runs in 58 balls, in which 7 wickets were in hand.

Lost Hope:-

Against a strong batting line-up, Delhi Capitals needed an extraordinary bowling performance. When Ishant Sharma dismissed Ambati Rayudu in the third over, the hosts were expecting for a while that they can win a match. But Shane Watson and Suresh Raina added 52 runs for the second wicket in only 4 overs, due to which Delhi was not seeing any hope of winning.
