Man Of The Match
Overall Chennai Super Kings Performed Great
After their Victory read what MS Dhoni says,
“We had to get Universe Boss out. Because with 160 or even 200 on the board, if Chris Gayle gets going, I don’t think you can really stop him,” MS Dhoni told the broadcasters after the match.
“I think it was important for us to get a few wickets in the first six overs and not leak a lot of runs and Bhajji (Harbhajan Singh) gave us that breakthrough. Otherwise, 160 is not much if Chris Gayle gets going. The only thing that can save you from Chris Gayle is an off-spinner, especially if it’s turning a bit. Other than that, you need somebody who could swing the ball.
“I felt Bhajji was really needed there and I felt over the years only the off-spinners have put some pressure on Chris Gayle. Other than that, even if you bowl very quick it really does not matter to him. If you can swing the ball at 128-130 kmph.. he gives you more respect than if bowl very quick,”
Let’s Talk About How Kings XI Punjab Lost This Match.
KXIP have won Four matches. This was their Second loss in this IPL season 2019 in this match CSK VS KXIP.
Ravichandran Ashwin says that,
“I would love to have four spinners and four fast bowlers. We can only play XI. We have a combination where we have a six-strong batting and five-strong bowling attack,I thought the bowlers bowled well. Probably, missed the mark a bit in the Powerplay, which is understandable. Whoever bowled and got a role to play, I thought we got them under par as well. We were in the chase.”
Best performer From KXIP was Sarfaraz Khan he scored 67 runs in 59 Balls.
