04 May 2018

Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Dinesh Karthik will once again come head-to-head in the Indian Premier League (IPL) when Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) host Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in the 33 match of the cash-rich tournament.

Narine was adjudged Man-of-the-Match for his all-round show - 32 runs and 2/20 - as KKR secured a six-wicket victory with 14 balls to spare.

The 22-year-old finished with a spell of 1-26 from four overs in the match which the two-time champions won by 13 runs. Among the fast bowlers, they have Mitchell Johnson, Shivam Mavi, and Tom Curran. Gill played a pivotal role in the middle overs with a well-constructed half-century and his final flourish alongside Karthik, who scored an 18-ball 45, ensured that they reached the No.3 spot on the points table.

Only after the introduction of Sunil Narine and Kuldeep Yadav into the bowling attack, the run rate came dropped below the nine mark at the 10th over.

In this case, Sabbatini was third way back in 2007, third again in 2011 and eighth as recently in 2014, when generally struggling. Therefore, looking at the leaderboard from previous year becomes irrelevant. "I thought that this was one I had in control".

KKR won the toss and elected to field first with CSK choosing to use Shane Watson and Faf du Plessis as their openers. Narine then castled Rayudu (21) with a handsome googly in the 15 over to cap off a brilliant bowling spell by KKR.

Dhoni then pulled the team to a fighting total with Jadeja for company before the latter got out to Chawla in the 20th over. "Karthik said", Credit to the franchisee, they picked a lot of under-19 players. Our bowlers were confident today, and they wanted to bowl, so I was happy to put their batsmen under pressure. "It was a team thought that we might go with the spinners in the slog overs and we ended up quite well bowling with spinners in the 18th, 19th and 20 over", he said.

Roma fans might have been exasperated to hear Di Francesco say that the team were still a work in progress. So did Liverpool really get lucky against Roma? "It suits our situation that on aggregate it's 7-6".

Chasing 178 for victory, Gill, an U-19 World Cup victor, joined hands with Karthik for an unbroken 83-run fifth wicket partnership off 36 deliveries that took the game away from MS Dhoni's team despite their making early inroads. The packed house that was itching for some fireworks from Dhoni's bat, was left disappointed as the wicketkeeper-batsman failed to break free after his team had lost early wickets. Classic example was Michael Hussey. Speaking at the press conference, the former New Zealand worldwide said, "We know we are not strong in that area and it got exposed".
