Chennai, April 9: Hosts Chennai Super Kings (CSK) defeated Delhi Daredevils (DD) by one run in a thrilling last-ball finish in Match 2 of Indian Premier League 2015 (IPL 8) at the MA Chidambaram Stadium here on Thursday.
Chasing a 151-run target after sending the home team into bat, the Daredevils fell short by just a run, managing to reach 149/9 in their allotted 20 overs.
Albie Morkel’s unbeaten half century (73 not out off 55) went in vain for DD. With 6 runs required off the final ball from Dwayne Bravo, Morkel managed to hit a boundary, thus falling short by 1 run. DD needed 19 runs from the final 6 balls of the match.
Veteran left-arm paceman Ashish Nehra was the star for CSK, taking three wickets for 25 runs in 4 overs. He won the Man-of-the-match award.
Yuvraj Singh, who was a bought for a record Rs 16 crores at this year’s players auction, failed. The left-hander was out for just 9 runs.
Earlier, CSK posted 150/7 in their 20 overs. Skipper MS Dhoni’s (30) and his Indian teammate Ravichandran Ashwin (12 not out) guided the team to the modest total after the home team struggled to force the pace throughout their innings.
CSK’s hope for a strong start got an early jolt when New Zealand’s World Cup hero Brendon McCullum (4) was dismissed in the second over.
Newly-married India batsman Suresh Raina (4) also didn’t last long.
Some tight bowling by Daredevils kept the Chennai batsman on a tight leash. CSK’s desperation to break the shackles got the better of them and after reaching their 100 in the 13th over, they lost wickets at regular intervals.
South African Faf du Plessis’ (32) dismissal triggered the downslide. His untimely dismissal, coupled with opener Dwayne Smith’s (34) in the ninth over, meant that CSK’s batting momentum was broken.
Daredevils opted to bowl after winning the toss. Daredevils went in with South Africans trio of skipper Jean Paul Duminy, Albie Morkel and Imran Tahir and Austrlian Nathan Coulter-Nile as the four overseas players.
Chennai, April 8: Injuries seem to be a permanent companion of India discard Irfan Pathan as the Baroda all-rounder has again reported unfit even before the ball has started rolling for Chennai Super Kings, who will be taking on Delhi Daredevils in their opening IPL encounter tomorrow.
Pathan, who was bought by CSK was training for the past few days, has again sustained an injury and chief coach Stephen Fleming confirmed that the left-arm seamer will not be available for selection against Daredevils.
“Irfan Pathan is not fit. Another pacer Andrew Tye is also carrying an injury. They won’t be considered for selection at this stage. Their progress will be assessed on a day to day basis,” Fleming confirmed at the pre-match media conference, here today.
Pathan has had various injuries ranging from hamstring, knee, calf muscle etc and the list is endless. On a lighter note, Fleming was asked about another veteran left-armer Ashish Nehra and the coach had a lot of good words about the former India player.
“We have a trend reviving older players. Nehra still has some life left. People focus on youth. But I like experience. Nehra and Hussey are key components in our side. The knowledge they can pass on is immense. The MS Dhoni and Raina factor will be crucial. I like their work and attitude.”
Talking about seamers in the team, Fleming stressed on the need to rotate the players. “The pacers in our squad is quite well rested. Only Mohit Sharma has had a full campaign. It’s the same with the overseas seamers. They didn’t have a full campaign. But this being a demanding tournament, we need to rotate them and keep them fresh.”
It will be Fleming’s seventh year as CSK coach and as usual there are some nervous jitters before the first ball is bowled. “The first game is always a challenge and it sets the tone. If you play well, it is a bonus.”
Chennai, April 8: The most consistent team across all seasons of the IPL, Chennai Super Kings would look to put behind the off-field distractions and do what they are best at when they take on previous edition’s bottom-placed Delhi Daredevils in their opening match of the Twent20 league here tomorrow.
The Super Kings were hounded by the spot-fixing scandal, in which their Team Principal Gurunath Meiyappan was indicted by a Supreme Court-monitored probe committee last year.
But the team, which has made the last four in each of the previous seven Indian Premier League seasons, including four straight final appearances and two titles, still managed to reach the second qualifier.
This edition is expected to be no different as they start afresh under the able leadership of Mahendra Singh Dhoni and coach Stephen Fleming once again.
Such has been their might that three years without a title is being considered a trophy drought and they would look to bounce back and silence the critics.
They have managed to retain the nucleus of the side and have invested in Irfan Pathan, Michael Hussey, Kyle Abott, Rahul Sharma.
Boosted by the presence of New Zealand’s Brendon McCullum, who had a fabulous World Cup recently, and Dwayne Smith at the top of the order, CSK should not face any problem getting off a swift start.
The middle order too, looks all settled with the likes of Suresh Raina, Hussey, Dhoni, Dwayne Bravo in the ranks. In case, these big names fail to fire, CSK have all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja and Ravichandran Ashwin down the order to finish the job with the bat.
As far as their bowling is concerned, the presence of Jadeja and Ashwin in spin department is a big plus, while pace bowlers Kyle Abbott, new import Matt Henry from New Zealand and Mohit Sharma are capable seamers.
Besides all-rounder Dwayne Bravo have shown variations of pace, furious hitting and swift fielding that has swung matches for CSK in the past.
The Daredevils, on the other hand, have once again gone for a complete overhaul of their side, but managed to bring in a few big names during the high-profile IPL auction.
Showing a lot of belief in India discard Yuvraj Singh, 33, the Delhi outfit purchased him for a record Rs. 16 crore after intense bidding among four franchises.
They look a strong team on paper
The team, which finished at the bottom of the table in the last two seasons, would be banking heavily on Yuvraj to deliver with his all-round abilities.
Besides Yuvraj, they have also invested in a 36-year-old fast bowler Zaheer Khan, who is also desperate to make a comeback to the Indian national team one last time.
Under the captaincy of Jean-Paul Duminy, the team would be preparing to turn its fortunes around in the 2015 season. Wicketkeeper-batsmen Quinton de Kock of South Africa and Mayank Agarwal are a good opening option, followed by Duminy, Yuvraj, Kedar Jadhav, Albie Morkel in the middle order.
Their batting also runs deep like CSK and it would be interesting to see how well these big names live up to their reputation. In Yuvraj and star Sri Lankan all-rounder Angelo Mathews, the Daredevils will have the necessary X-factor.
The Sri Lankan captain, however, will miss tomorrow’s tie because of a ban on the Lankan players by the Tamil Nadu government.
On the bowling front, South Africa leg-spinner Imran Tahir would look to replicate his World Cup show, while India’s consistent pacer Mohammad Shami will partner the highly experienced Zaheer in the pace department.
They look a strong team on paper but it remains to be seen whether they better their 2012 show where they crashed out in the play-offs. They also had last-four finishes in 2008 and 2009.
