The first qualifier for this season’s IPL was yesterday between Chennai Super Kings and Delhi Capitals. The stakes were high and as expected we witnessed a clinic between both giants.
Delhi was very impressed with the bat as they scored an impressive knock of 172 for 5. It was the performances of skipper Rishabh Pant and Prithvi Shah that made them able to reach this score.
However, with the likes of Robin Uthappa & Rithuraj Gaikwad, Chennai put on a master class performance.
The game-changer was the legendary captain M S Dhoni. He just showed again that why he is called the greatest finisher in the history of the game. When the duo of Uthappa & Gaikwad got out Chennai was in a very desperate position as the required run-rate kept on increasing. Then came captain cool, everyone was surprised as he came ahead of Jadeja. Despite his struggle with the bat recently, he put on trail-blazing innings.
Chennai required 13 runs in the last over. Then came Tom Curran, but captain cool smashed Curran’s 3 fours and finished the match grandly.
Fans were delighted, the mouth of critics was shut down, Chennai entered the finals again, these were the key factors after this performance.
He is showing, again and again, age is just a number. THALA Fans can celebrate now and wait for the finals.
