That's all from this thriller! Chennai win their third game in a row while Kolkata lose their third in a row but the fight they showed was pleasing to see. On Thursday, 22nd April 2021, Bangalore go up against Rajasthan in Mumbai. That match will begin at 1930 local (1400 GMT). Till then, cheers and take care.
Faf du Plessis, the Man of the Match, says that he has felt the most fluent in this season so far and he is feeling more technically correct. Goes onto say that the ball came sweeter of the bat in this game and he is pleased with his performance. Adds that he felt that the spinners were a threat as the ball stopped a bit. Tells that Gaikwad is a fantastic talent and it is beautiful to see him bat and he is a wonderful timer of the ball. Tells that he is very lucky to play under MS Dhoni as he is very calm, cool and collected. Goes onto say that they bowled well in the Powerplay but then the dew set in but Andre Russell played brilliantly.
MS Dhoni, the Chennai skipper, says that it is quite easy as the context was between the batsmen and the bowlers from the 16th over and it was their execution which matters. Adds that he has seen enough in cricket and he likes to be humble and there is no reason that the opposition cannot score the same as them. Tells that he told the guys to focus on their game and play well. Tells that Russell played the way he does and the pitch was stopping a bit. Goes onto say that they have bowled so many outside off but one which was bowled on the pads, they got a wicket. States that the batting was good and Gaikwad played well and it was crucial that he got runs on the board. Says that Gaikwad did not look rattled and he backed themselves. Tells that they need to understand their teammates really well.
Eoin Morgan, Kolkata skipper, says they made a great comeback in the game after they were 31/5 at one stage. Adds that the partnership between Russell and Karthik's partnership was crucial for them. Mentions that Cummins played a superb innings. Further says that the first 5 overs of their batting did not go our way. Morgan also says that if they had got one partnership at the top, they would have chased this total. Mentions that the bowlers could have executed better but losing 5 wickets in the Powerplay cost them the game. Praises Russell for his innings and Russell was disappointed after getting out.
Stay tuned for the presentation ceremony!
Deepak Chahar is up for a chat. He says that he tried to bowl straight balls and it helped him. Adds that there was some swing on the surface. Mentions that he tried to execute his skills and it paid off. Further says that after the Powerplay the ball came nicely onto the bat and it helped the batsmen.
Chennai, oh Chennai, how did the game come so close? Picked up 5 wickets in the Powerplay with Deepak Chahar taking 4 wickets and the game should have been done and dusted but later, their bowling was hammered. Sam Curran went for 58 runs while Shardul Thakur continues to have a tough time with the ball. Curran, despite giving 58 runs, probably picked the wicket of the match as he dismissed Andre Russell. Overall, a tough game but Chennai will be relieved.
Kolkata were off to a poor start as they lost 5 wickets for 31 runs inside the Powerplay. Many would have thought that Kolkata were done and dusted but not Andre Russell, Dinesh Karthik and Pat Cummins. Andre Russell tonked 54 in just 22 balls while Karthik played very well but something special was yet to come. Pat Cummins was superb, he hit Sam Curran for 30 runs in an over and he brought Kolkata back in the game but he lost out of partners in the end and Kolkata fell short. But, hold your heads high as they have given a tough fight.
How did the game get so close? Take a bow, Pat Cummins, Andre Russell, and Dinesh Karthik. But special credit has to be given to Pat Cummins. When he came in, Kolkata were still way behind but he tonked the ball to all parts of the ground and took Kolkata close but it was not to be. Chennai will be relieved that they have managed to get over the line. Whatever happened, this game was a thriller and we were all entertained.
