CSK's Deepak Chahar out of IPL for 2 weeks with hamstring strain

CSK's Deepak Chahar out of IPL for 2 weeks with hamstring strain

While Delhi Daredevils recovered from the turmoil of their skipper Gautam Gambhir resigning from the position and outclassed Kolkata Knight Riders.

On the other CSK, suffered a loss in their previous match due to nonperformance of the middle order, once the issue is dealt with Chennai is a force to reckon with.

Sky Sports announced in January that they had agreed a "multi-year extension" to their current contract to show the IPL in the UK.

Dhoni (51*) slammed his fifty in 22 balls and put CSK in charge of the contest.

In Brolin's Instagram tribute he described Gidley as a "spitfire and a truly amusing person". "I can't imagine anyone wanted me that bad".


At the top of the order, Watson was unstoppable after Boult nearly had him trapped in front of the stumps with a pacy inswinger at the start of the match. He ended up with five sixes and two fours.

DD have taken the most wickets in the last five - 21 - taking a wicket every 8.47 overs, conceding a boundary every 6.36 balls compared to the tournament average of 5.00 in this phase.

Watson was lucky to survive a leg-before appeal off the first ball of the match from Trent Boult, with the third umpire adjudging he had got an inside edge, though the replays were inconclusive.

In the 11th over, Vijay Shankar finally dismissed Faf du Plessis for 33 from 33 balls, but CSK had already made it to 102 thanks to Watson's fireworks. Off the backs of their half-centuries against DD, MS Dhoni and Shane Watson move into fifth and sixth place respectively in the race for the highest run-scorer. He could not clear Liam Plunkett, who had a forgettable match after two excellent games, and Watson's anguish told volumes about the missed chance of getting his second three-figure score in this IPL.

Steve Kerr calls Stephen Curry "probable" for Game 2
Klay Thompson finished the game as the leading scorer for the Warriors with 27 points, Anthony Davis had 21 for the Pelicans . Curry was also out of action for 19 games in the 2017-2018 campaign because of a chronic right-ankle injury.


When the former Australian all-rounder departed, the risky combination of Rayudu and Dhoni got together in the 14th over.

The duo added 79 for the fourth wicket off just 36 balls that set the match up for the two-time champion. While Delhi would fight for survival, CSK would be equally keen to get back to winning ways after losing by eight wickets to Mumbai Indians in their adopted home ground. "Don't ask me who all are playing, we have so many changes", Dhoni said.

The biggest concern lies in the bowling department.

Thereafter, Ambati Rayudu and MS Dhoni built it up for CSK.

He said he had raised the idea with Moon, days after dramatic images of Moon meeting Kim at the Peace House dominated the news. The same report stated that China's Beijing as well as other sites in North and South Korea were not under consideration.


Among others, T20 biggies Colin Munro and Glenn Maxwell looked in good touch against KKR with short but impactful innings. Asif picked up a wicket in each of his first two overs by hitting the bat hard, ensuring that the momentum was never with the visiting side, while Ngidi was all class all the way through.
