Chennai Super Kings batsman shines in the first innings. Ruturaj Gaikwad, Fantastic Faf du Plessis gave a good start to their team. Ruturaj falls early as he scores only 32 runs. Fantastic knock by Faf du Plessis, he scores 86 runs and became wings for Chennai Super Kings. CSK score 192 runs with 3 wicket losses in 20 overs.
Kolkata Knight Riders need 193 runs to win their 3rd IPL title. Shubman Gill and Venkatesh Iyer are open for KKR. It seems that the place will change opponents will change but one thing that can’t be changed is the Venkatesh Iyer form. What a player he is. He changed the fortunes of KKR. Another great knock by a great player. He scores 50 runs in 32 balls with the help of 3 sixes and 5 fours.
Iyer ranking up most runs for the KKR franchise in the second half, he scores 320 runs in 9 matches while striking at 125 with three half-centuries.
KKR managed to score 50 runs in the power play. But in the 11th over Shardul Thakur takes the wicket of Venkatesh Iyer. Ball up in the air and Sir Ravindra Jadeja underneath this time. And took a brilliant catch. Brilliant catch by the champion athlete.
And in the next ball Shardul takes the wicket of Nitish Rana, he falls for 0. Sunil Narine also gets out by Josh Hazlewood in the 12th over. Shubman Gill gets stump out by Deepak Chahar.
It’s good start for Kolkata Knight Riders at the beginning of the 2nd innings. But all are going to be very tough for Knight Riders.
Only one team will going to be the champion. But in this IPL 2021 season, we got so many champions. Venkatesh Iyer, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Avesh Khan, Harshal Patel and so many champions. IPL tagline is “Talent meets opportunity”. And these champions will represent our India one day.
