KKR VS CSK MATCH-33 IPL23
CHENNAI SUPER KINGS WON BY 49 RUNS
KOLKATA KNIGHT RIDERS
CHENNAI SUPER KINGS
LOCATION – Eden Gardens Stadium, Kolkata.
A contest that the Yellow Army completely dominated! Nitish Rana requested that CSK bat first, and they immediately started firing on all cylinders. Another fifty-year stand was put up by Conway and Gaikwad. Devon Conway eventually scored his fourth fifty-point game of the year. The assault from Ajinkya Rahane and Shivam Dube, however, was what gave the KKR bowling attack the willies. Rahane scored 71 runs at a strike rate of 244, and Dube needed just 21 balls to reach 50. With all of the spinners in the CSK ranks, a target of 236 was never going to be simple. The top four batsmen for KKR returned to the pavilion without contributing to the game as they continued to lose wickets at regular intervals. While Jason Roy 61(26) and Rinku Singh 53*(33) delivered some lusty blows, they were unable to keep up with the steadily increasing asking rate. The game is won by CSK by a tremendous margin of 49 runs, which will undoubtedly increase their NRR!
Player of the Game goes to Ajinkya Rahane.
Ajinkya Rahane. said “Just had a clear mindset. You’ll be OK if the thought that’s inside your head is correct. Just trying to have fun with the game. Although the wicket was a little sticky, once you were inside, you had a great chance. After a strong start, I wanted to play my shots and maintain the momentum. Even though I’ve appreciated all of my victories thus far, I believe the greatest is yet to come””.
