IPL 2018: Three players to watch out from Chennai Super Kings

Published

on

IPL 2018 - MI vs CSK

Chennai Super Kings, one of the most popular IPL franchise is back after serving two years suspension. And to the delight of fans, they are back with a bang.
Some smart buys at the auctions have once again created a strong CSK contingency and we look at their top three players.

MS Dhoni- MS Dhoni has been de facto captain of CSK. But last year while playing for Pune Supergiants, Dhoni wasn’t the captain of the team. In international cricket as well, Dhoni has given up captaincy, so it will be interesting to see how he fares at CSK once again.
His batting too is under the scanner and the question whether he is still the best finisher around is looming large.
CSK’s success this year will depend on how Dhoni marshals his troops and fares behind the wickets. His role with the bat is too important as well as he is the team’s strength in the middle order.

Suresh Raina- After a disastrous year at Gujarat Lions, Suresh Raina is back in similar conditions in 2018.
Raina will be the automatic choice for CSK at number three and the team will expect Raina to repeat his exploits from the past.
Raina currently is keen on making a comeback in the national team, so there will be more eyes watching the left-hand batsman.

Shane Watson- CSK has traditionally relied on all-rounders to play a significant role in team’s success and this year at the auctions, they picked Shane Watson for this position.
The man of the series of the first edition of IPL, Watson has been a key player in T20 format throughout his career thanks to his all-around abilities.
However, from the last few seasons, Watson failed to weave his magic in IPL and has changed franchises. So, it is interesting to see how the Australian player fares under Dhoni’s leadership as Dhoni is known to bring the best out of his players.

IPL 2018: Kolkata Knight Riders : KKR Team history, previous year’s performances

IPL 2019: KKR full squad

Two titles and a few decent seasons have made KKR one of the strongest teams in IPL and their sensational fanbase has also allowed them to keep their financial calculations strong.

Owned by the Bollywood superstar, Shahrukh Khan, KKR has always remained in the limelight and their frequent innovations in jerseys and logos have always stirred the IPL world.

KKR Year wise performances in IPL

Brenden Mccullum’s stunning century kickstarted KKR’s IPL campaign but the team failed to make it to the play-offs during its first three years. A change in leadership also changed fortunes for the team, as Gautam Gambhir led the franchise to two IPL trophies in the next four years.

Gambhir’s success was based on the core group which KKR retained for almost half-a-decade. This core group brought balance to the team and took them to greater heights.

Season                                 Position

2008                       League Stage

2009                       League Stage

2010                       League Stage

2011                       Play-offs

2012                       Winners

2013                       League Stage

2014                       Winners

2015                       League Stage

2016                       Play-offs

2017                       Play-offs

KKR Best Season- 2012

KKR became the IPL champions for the first time in 2012 riding on a sensational hundred by Manvinder Bisla against CSK in the finals.

Gautam Gambhir led the team and was also team’s leading run-scorer while Sunil Narine was the leading wicket-taker. The year 2012 is remembered for Sunil Narine’s rise in IPL and this performance by Narine was the decisive factor in KKR’ winning campaign.

KKR won 10 games out of their 16 in the league stage and ended the league stage at number two.

KKR Worst Season- 2009

The most disappointing season for KKR was 2009 when they won only three games out of their 14 games. They finished the season at number eight as the last team in the points table.

The captaincy of Saurav Ganguly was under the scanner and also the role of their coach John Buchanan.

IPL 2018: Chennai overcome Russell special to snatch victory against KKR

Published

on

IPL 2018 - MI vs CSK

Andre Russell’s incredible power hitting of 36-ball-88 runs propelled Kolkata to 202 but Shane Watson and Sam Billings’ crucial knocks helped Chennai to ace the chase and mark the homecoming of IPL at MA Chidambaram stadium after three years.

In a game that saw plenty of runs, Kolkata started the innings with aggression as openers Chris Lynn and Sunil Narine scored quick runs in powerplays. But both of them departed soon without making considerable damage. Narine’s miscued slog sweep against Harbhajan Singh was caught brilliantly by Suresh Raina in the third over while Ravindra Jadeja knocked out Lynn’s stumps in the sixth over with team score at 51.

Nitesh Rana too departed early and Robin Uthappa’s (29 off 16 balls) run-out after a highly promising start further pushed KKR back as Chennai sneaked in a few quiet overs. After eight overs KKR were 80 for two but after 15 overs they were choked to 123 for five wickets down.

Just when KKR looked to finish the innings at a sub-par total, Russell changed gears and created a flurry of sixes. He smashed four sixes against Thakur in the 16th over and 20th over and five sixes against Bravo in the 17th and 19th over. Russell smashed 11 sixes out of which one went out of the park and one hit stadium’s roof. This colossal hitting propelled KKR to 202 and Russell finished with 88 runs off 36 balls.

CSK replied to the target in style as Shane Watson (42 off 19 balls) and Ambati Rayadu (39 off 26 balls) added 75 runs for the first wicket in just 5.5 overs. But after their demise, Sunil Narine and Andre Russell kept boundaries at bay and brought KKR back in the hunt.

Sam Billings though had other ideas and his 23 balls 56 run knock which included five sixes pushed Chennai closer in the death overs. Russell removed Billings in the 19th over with Chennai needing 19 off eight balls.

Bravo smoked a six of the first ball of the last over bowled by Vinay Kumar and then Ravindra Jadeja nailed a six off the fifth ball to clinch a thrilling win for Chennai. Sunil Narine was the outstanding bowler from both sides as he conceded just 17 in his four overs.
