IPL: Bangalore up against confident Chennai

May JohnsonApr 26, 2018

In their chase of 206, CSK at one stage were 74 for four.

Dhoni, in particular, was in an aggressive mood from the moment he took guard.

The duo then shared a crucial 101-run partnership for the fifth wicket, bringing back CSK in the contest. The CSK skipper threw the kitchen sink at anything over-pitched, sending the ball flying to all parts of the ground. Raina did not last long and was dismissed by Umesh Yadav in the sixth over. This is probably for the first time that a huge number of fans from Chennai are arriving in the city as Bengaluru is the nearest destination for them to watch their home team CSK renew its intense rivalry after two years when they last had a face-off with RCB.

Also keen to perform will be captain Dhoni (139) himself and Dwayne Bravo (104). Bravo started with a thick edge, which eluded the wicketkeeper and reached the third-man boundary. However, I don't feel extra pressure, I don't think Virat feels it either. Chennai is in the second place with eight points by winning four matches and lost one match out of five matches.

United Kingdom government moving forward as one on Brexit plans-PM May's spokesman
But Tory peer Lord Shinkwin said backing the amendment amounted a "vote of no confidence in parliament" to protect human rights. It reduces administrative and financial trade barriers, such as customs checks and charges, and boosts economic co-operation.

Bangalore, on the other hand, are coming on the back of a win against the hapless Delhi Daredevils, thanks largely to AB de Villiers' 39 ball unbeaten 90.

He came out to bat early in the 5th over after the skipper Virat Kohli's wicket had silenced the Stadium big time. "It's so frustrating." Nishreen Mustafa from Royapuram in Chennai is also disappointed that she and her husband can not get tickets even though her husband is ready to pay more for the two Rs, 1,700 tickets they are looking for. It took de Villiers five deliveries to get off the mark, but he broke the drought in style with a straight six off Harbahajan Singh.

But the visitors wouldn't have imagined what was coming their way, as de Villiers started off by clobbering Harbhajan Singh for two consecutive sixes before launching left-arm spinner Jadeja to the skies. "We have a team of match-winners and it is up to us to share the load", the South African batsman added.

Virat Kohli (captain), AB de Villiers, Sarfaraz Khan, Brendon McCullum, Chris Woakes, Colin de Grandhomme, Moeen Ali, Quinton de Kock, Umesh Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Manan Vohra, Kulwant Khejroliya, Aniket Choudhary, Navdeep Saini, Mandeep Singh, Washington Sundar, Pawan Negi, Mohammed Siraj, Parthiv Patel, Aniruddha Joshi, Pavan Deshpande, Tim Southee, Corey Anderson, Murugan Ashwin.
