Man Of The Match

Overall Chennai Super Kings Performed Great

After their Victory read what Imran Tahir says,

I just bowled according to the captain’s instructions. It’s always beneficial taking advice from Dhoni. He’s helping me a lot. It’s an absolute pleasure and the credit goes to him.There are few things which he tells me like where I need to bowl which area and where the guy is going to hit. It’s working and I’m just loving it. We are playing good cricket. We respect each other and enjoy each other’s success. Those were small things. He tells me like this guy is trying to hit in this area so I bowl accordingly. I am an attacking spinner and want to take wickets and he allows me to bowl that way

Let’s Talk About How Kolkata Knight Riders Lost This Match.

KKR have won 4 matches.This was theirFourth loss in this IPL season 2019 in this match CSK VS KKR.

Dinesh Karthik says that,

We knew that we needed to get a big total but we ended up getting probably 10-15 runs short. Eden has been one place where the wicket is so true and the outfield being so fast the boundaries come easily. So here you have to get a score which is about five-10 runs more than par on other grounds.We were definitely not a bowler short for sure [despite the absence of Sunil Narine]. We had more options like Carlos [Brathwaite]. We were a few runs short and could have bowled a little better. I expected our bowlers to perform better but that did not turn out to be. Such things happen in a game of cricket.

Best performer From KKR was Chris Lynn he scored 82 runs in 51 Balls.
