CSK eyeing its first Win against Punjab Kings. Will Dhoni’s Army Succeed?
One of the strongest teams in IPL, the Chennai Super Kings had been to a bad start in the IPL 2021. The team lost to Delhi Capitals in their first match and is now facing Punjab Kings in the second. The Dhoni-led team is filled with talent with most of the veterans of international cricket. With all the experience that the players had to offer, they are expected to be one of the few teams that might end up on the top.
Chennai Super Kings, the mightiest team in the history of IPL delivered performances better than any IPL team. Though the team had not secured as many titles as the current defending champions, Mumbai Indians, they have the highest victory rate. The team is also the only one to be in finals 8 times since the beginning of the Indian Premier League. So, it is natural to expect that CSK will fight harder under the captainship of MS Dhoni.
Led by the captain cool, CSK comprises Suresh Raina, Faf Du Plessis, Ambati Rayudu, Dwayne Bravo, Sam Curran, Ravindra Jadeja, Krishnappa Gowtham, Moeen Ali, Mitchell Santner, Shardul Thakur, Imran Tahir, Deepak Chahar, Lungi Ngidi, and others.
Raina had returned to the team after missing out on IPL 2020 and hit a half-century in the first match against Delhi Capitals. Players Moeen Ali, Ravindra Jadeja, Ambati Rayudu, and Sam Curran did well with the bat taking CSK’s score to 188. Unfortunately, Dwayne Bravo, Deepak Chahar, and Shardul Thakur were the only ones in the bowling squad that put up any kind of resistance. The team might come up with a better strategy this time when facing Punjab Kings that has some of the best batsmen in IPL 2021.
Punjab Kings won their first match against Rajasthan Royals. The team put up a massive target of 222 with KL Rahul hitting 91 of 50 balls, Chris Gayle hitting 40 of 28 balls, and Deepak Hooda hitting 64 of 28 balls. Though the team barely managed to defend the score, it stood victorious in the end with Mohammad Shami taking 2 and Arshdeep Singh taking 3 wickets.
Along with the captain KL Rahul, Punjab Kings comprises talented players like Mayank Agarwal, Chris Gayle, Nicholas Pooran, Deepak Hooda, Shahrukh Khan, Jhye Richardson, Dawid Malan, Sarfaraz Khan, Mohammad Shami, Arshdeep Singh, etc. The team is known for putting up bigger targets, but will it be able to do the same and stand its ground while the opposition chases?
