It was yet another flop show from the Chennai Super Kings’ batsmen as they suffered their fourth defeat of the ongoing 13th edition of the Indian Premier League by the hands of Kolkata Knight Riders. The batsmen of CSK couldn’t chase the target and eventually fell short of 10 runs.
Chasing a target of 168 runs for victory, CSK were crushing at 99 runs for 1 after 12 overs, however, after 12 overs and a dramatic batting collapse of CSK’s middle-order led to their downfall and they ended up with 157 for 5 in 20 overs.
Chennai Super Kings’ middle-order once again failed their team with their bottled up performance against Kolkata Knight Riders and failed to chase the target runs. Coming out to start the innings, opener Shane Watson and Faf du Plessis gave a solid start to the game, however, Faf had to return back to the pavilion.
But Shane Watson held the game and tried to bring momentum to it. Ambatti Rayudu also failed to showcase his brilliance with the bat as he was dismissed with only 30 runs in his account.
After Faf and Rayudu’s dismissal, the responsibility to take the team on the winning side fell on MS Dhoni’s shoulders. However, MS Dhoni once again failed to give the best of his abilities. His dismissal occurred in the 17th over when Chennai Super Kings needed 44 in the last over. From there on, the wickets fell in quick successions and CSK eventually lost the match to KKR by 10 runs.
Meanwhile, social media was flooded with reactions after the debacle of CSK in the match last night. Twitterati are trolling the batting line-up of CSK after they collapsed ahead of KKR’s bowlers. Among many, Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan also took to his twitter and posted a cryptic tweet, that many twitterati though was for CSK’s debacle. Mr. Bachchan wrote:
“T 3683 – मौसम बदल रहा है ; बारिश को जितना बरसना था बरस गयी , अब कुछ नयी हवाएँ चल पड़ी हैं”
