CSK vs KKR IPL 2023


Chennai’s super performance help defeat Kolkata Knight Riders, Dhoni’s team tops chart

CSK vs KKR Highlights IPL 2023: Chennai Super Kings defeated Kolkata Knight Riders by 49 runs in an Indian Premier League match at Kolkata’s Eden Gardens on Sunday.

Devon Conway, Shivam Dube and Ajinkya Rahane slammed quick half-centuries to guide CSK to an imposing 235 for four after being asked to bat. Dube (50 off 21) and Rahane (71 not out off 29) kept up the scoring rate, stitching 85 runs off just 32 balls to keep CSK’s scoring rate high.

Young leg-spinner Suyash Sharma (2/29 from 4 overs) was KKR’s lone bright spot in the bowling department.

Chasing, KKR could manage 186 for eight in their 20 overs. Jason Roy made a quickfire 26-ball 61, while Rinku Singh scored an unbeaten 33-ball 53 but it was not enough to chase down the mammoth target.

Maheesh Theekshana (2/32) and Tushar Deshpande (2/43) picked up two wickets each for CSK.

Ben Stokes looks fit. He is batting in the nets too. But old-schoool Dhoni is not interested yet to make changes in the playing 11. He stuck to his young pacers to do the job in the last match vs Sunrisers Hyderabad. Eden Gardens has spin-friendly wicket too and don’t think Moeen will drop either Maheesh Theekshana or Moeen Ali to fit in Stokes. The Shah Rukh Khan-owned KKR may finally want to give Jason Roy a go in the playing 11. 

CSK put up an almost flawless display against KKR at Eden Gardens. They dominated the home support with a sea of yellow in the stands and played an excellent game to match the fervour. Ruturaj and Devon Conway gave CSK a blazing start in the powerplay, with the latter scoring yet another half-century. The rest of the innings was defined by two relatively unsung heroes in this IPL – Shivam Dube and Ajinkya Rahane, both Mumbai-born batsmen playing for Chennai, who came to Eden Gardens and unleashed an onslaught on Kolkata. In total, they hit 18 sixes, setting the highest IPL score ever at this venue, finishing with a total of 235. Their momentum continued into the second innings as Akash Singh and Tushar Deshpande took a wicket each in the first two overs, providing CSK with a dream start.

Umesh Yadav falls to a stunning catch by Conway off Theekshana’s bowling! It was a full delivery on the leg, Umesh went for the big slog down the ground. However, the ball came flat towards long-on, where Conway dived as if he were diving into a swimming pool, and took the catch so effortlessly. Umesh Yadav departs for just 4 runs.

Russell is Caught by Shivam Dube off Pathirana’s delivery! The ball was full outside off, and Russell tried to hit it hard towards the leg side, but it was an aimless heave. The ball went high up in the air towards long-on, and Dube made a comfortable catch. Pathirana celebrated the wicket with a new Cristiano Ronaldo-inspired celebration or something similar. It was an interesting choice. Russell scored 9 runs off 6 balls with a six, but unfortunately, he couldn’t stay longer in the crease. Pathirana dismisses Russell, caught by Shivam Dube.
