With the field covered with a layer of grass, our Men in Yellow and Men in Blue entered the field with great enthusiasm and sportsman spirit. Wind and large boundaries will definitely affect the playing but aren’t those men the superheroes of IPL?
MS Dhoni entered the field with the whole Maahi Attitude, which is enough for a comeback. Under his captaincy, he managed to conquer the land as CSK’s village and prove what they are!

Best Wickets And Turns:
The striking catch by Faf Du Plessis on Jadeja’s ball was a total burn for MI. Faf Du Plessis, with his outstanding catches, caught the attention of the viewers. His astounding jumps and leaps were a highlight of the match.
With MS Dhoni, as our Outstanding wicket-keeper, he and the team members made it difficult for the opponent team to stay in NOT-OUT state. More notable scenes of the match were the high sixes by both the teams.
With so many falls of wickets and sky-high jumps along with a few misses, it was CSK who knocked out the whole MI Team allowing them to score only 162 runs/9 wickets.
CSK put pressure on MI so hard, they managed to make only 4 sixes. A very close catch, Faf Du Plessis’s boundary catch, which if missed, would have been a hard turn in the match for CSK.
During the break:
After the first half, it was time for a break. A social distance discussion among the players was held. Players, drowned in sweat and mud, obviously needed some rest.
When CSK came to bat:
When CSK came for batting it was M. Vijay as their opening batsman. Making just 1 run in 7 balls was a moment of fear for CSK but they managed to snap MI’s neck with their amazing batting skills.
Vijay made a score of 1 run, S. Watson of 4 runs, Faf Du Plessis made 58 runs and A. Rayudu had an amazing score of 71 runs in the match. R. Jadeja of 10 runs, S. Curran of 18 runs, it was an amazing partnership of these people who made it possible for CSK to win and those amazing 5 sixes were too beautiful to watch.
Curran’s batting was a masterstroke as he made 18 runs in just 6 balls.
With Faf Du Plessis and Dhoni not out, it was a total relief for the team members and fans too.
