The 12th season of the Indian Premier League began with an encounter between the teams of two of most prominent Indian cricket players. The seasonal opener became a talk of the town with previous year champions, Chennai Super Kings facing Royal Challengers Bangalore.
Well, the game turned out to be an interesting event; however, the Challengers failed to create magic on the field. Virat’s boys winded up their game with a total score of 70 runs, getting all out. Mahendra Singh Dhoni or better known as Thala, just like the other times took a wise decision of opting to field first after winning the toss.
The 71-run target chase came as a cakewalk for the Kings, who went on to conquer a convincing 7-wicket victory against RCB in the series opener. Both Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers couldn’t pull off much for the team. Kohli got out for a score of 6 runs in 12 balls after trying to pull off a short delivery over the midwicket, only to make the ball land in Jadeja’s hands.
The score of 6 runs achieved by Virat Kohli in Saturday’s match against Chennai Super Kings is the lowest against the team in the long span of IPL & his worst at Chepauk. On the other hand, it was Harbhajan Singh only who dismissed the South African Legend, ABD, for a score of nine runs.
The 12th edition of the Indian Premier League began with a victory Chennai Super Kings, is it a sign that the lions will roar once again & grab their 4th title this year. Or will RCB make a potential comeback to win their first title?
