2008 – KKR started high by beating Deccan Chargers and Royal Challengers, but Super Kings stopped their winning run and then they ended up 6th in the table. Is history going to repeat itself?? It’s too early to say but the script looks the same as of today. Things surely were going according to plan for Kolkata Knight Riders until the final assault from the Chennai duo(Dhoni & Badrinath) spoiled the party for Dada and his million fans. It has only been a month since Dhoni and the Indian team were cheered by the Kolkata fans to equal the series against SA but today Dhoni was on the opposite side but that didn’t deter him one bit. We got to see phenomenal hitting from him which helped Super kings to post a competitive total. KKR who have been on a roll winning their first 2 matches were beaten comprehensively by 50 runs.
It was the battle of South Giants between Deccan Chargers and Chennai Super Kings but once again it turned out to be a one sided affair as it always has been when these 2 teams have clashed . Before the game started the stats read – DC CSK DC CSK and hence this game was supposed to be DC’s game and it turned out to be that way. Vaas was the hero with the ball and all the big guns of DC fired setting up a huge total of 190.Not to forget the superb display of ground fielding from the Chargers which made the 191 target look like 210.
