Chennai Super Kings, the defending champions of IPL and winner of the last IPL season, is in the winning spree. In their first and inaugural match of IPL fantasy, they defeated RCB. In the 5th match of IPL and their second match, they thrashed DC – Delhi Capitals.
It is evident that the IPL fantasy cricket fans are having a great time this season. Many of the fans of CSK might already be having dreams of CSK with IPL 2019 trophy.
Let us take a look at the conditions which lead to CSK victory in their 2nd match and give a little more fire to the dream of IPL T20 fantasy game fans. Read on:
CSK bowlers bowled great death balls
Delhi Capitals ended up being in a good situation in the IPL fantasy league when Rishabh Pant and Shikhar Dhawan were batting DC score 118-2 after 15 overs. It appeared as if DC might make a powerful end and put up a score near to 165-170. But Bravo had distinct plans. Bravo’s first over went giving away 17 runs. And he made a wonderful comeback as he picked up the crucial wickets of Ingram and Pant in his next over. He gave away merely four runs in his 2nd over.
DC lost all of the energy after losing two wickets to Bravo in a single over. In the next few overs, more wickets went down. After Shikhar Dhawan’s dismissal, DC crumbled down and ended their innings on 147-6. That was the power of CSK’s death ball.
CSK had been off to a flier
Chasing 148, the CSK batsmen were aware that it can have tough when the spinners would probably come on. And so they chose to maximise the powerplay. However, they lost an early wicket. This got the bowlers as CSK scored just 58 runs in the 1st six overs. Ishant Sharma, who got rid off Rayudu in his second over, was shattered for 18 runs in his third over for Raina’s boundaries.
Watson and Raina set an ideal platform for the upcoming batsmen as the needed run-rate was brought down below seven. Following the powerplay, Watson shattered Mishra for two sixes in an over but got out in the same over for 44 off 26 balls. The wise tactics from CSK to get off to a flier was one of the primary reasons why they were able to chase the given total.
Ideal Finish by MS Dhoni and Kedar Jadhav
Once Shane Watson and Suresh Raina arrange the stage for the other cricketers, it was up to Kedar Jadhav and Dhoni to end the game, and they didn’t fail the Chennai fans. We have experienced many times these two ending games in the Indian tones and they did the same for CSK in their 2nd game.
The 48 run collaboration between Jadhav and Dhoni where Dhoni hit 32 runs off 35 balls was crucial for CSK’s second win of this IPL season.
