    Chennai Super Kings win last-over thriller by 1 run

    Category: Cricket News,IPL,IPL 2016 News,IPL Chennai Super Kings,IPL Delhi DareDevils

    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.


    Preview: IPL 2015 Match 3: Rajasthan Royals Vs Kings XI Punjab in Pune

    Category: IPL,IPL 2016 News,IPL Kings XI Punjab,IPL Rajasthan Royals

    Pune, April 9: Rajasthan Royals would look to adapt quickly to their new ‘home ground’ when they lock horns with last season’s runner-up Kings XI Punjab in their campaign opener in the Indian Premier League here tomorrow.

    The Royals, who have three 2015 World Cup winners in Shane Watson, Steven Smith and Jame Faulkner, would look to Chris Morris, their costliest buy at Rs 1.4 crore, for a positive start.

    Morris was bought for his all-round skills and will be expected to partner Faulkner in that department. With the ball, Morris produced a record performance for Lions in the Ram Slam T20 last year.

    But a big challenge for Royals would be adapting to a new home after their actual home ground of Jaipur was taken off the roster owing to the dispute in the Rajasthan Cricket Association.

    With captain Watson and Stuart Binny playing all-round roles as well, chief coach Paddy Upton feels Morris’ inclusion gives Royals a lot of options.

    They have also brought in two leg-spinners in Dinesh Salunkhe and Pardeep Sahu, and could play decisive roles for the team in this format.

    Smith, meanwhile, comes in to the IPL on the back of an awe-inspiring performance in the year gone by. He has scored 2096 runs in 31 international matches across all formats at a brilliant average of 69.86, which includes eight hundreds.

    During this period, he captained Australia’s Test side and was their leading run-scorer (402 at an average of 67, including an unbeaten fifty in the final) in a winning World Cup campaign.

    Kings XI Punjab captain George Bailey, who did not get to spend much time in the middle last season, aggregated 257 runs at a strike rate of 135.26.

    But it was Glenn Maxwell – 552 runs at a strike rate of 187.75 – who was the team’s trump card in the previous IPL. In the company of South African dasher David Miller and the Indian trio of Virender Sehwag, Manan Vohra and Wriddhiman Saha, Maxwell could well be the key to the team’s fortunes this season as well.

    ‘We have a well balanced team’

    That intimidating batting order has been further beefed up by the addition of Murali Vijay. The bowling department also looks solid with Australian tearaway Mitchell Johnson leading the pacers pack.

    “Last year was a good season for us and we would want to carry on the winning spree this season as well,” coach Sanjay Bangar said on the sidelines of KXIP’s pre-season camp here.

    “We have a well balanced team and the entire coaching staff is positive about the team’s performance. As a part of this camp, we will focus towards working on the strengths and improvement areas of the players and look forward to a great tournament.”


    Kings XI Punjab: Axar Patel, Anureet Singh, Beuran Hendricks, David Miller, George Bailey (captain), Glenn Maxwell, Gurkeerat Singh Mann, Karanveer Singh, Manan Vora, Mitchell Johnson, Parvinder Awana, Rishi Dhawan, Sandeep Sharma, Shardul Thakur, Shaun Marsh, Shivam Sharma, Thisara Perera, Virender Sehwag, Wriddhiman Saha, Murali Vijay, Nikhil Naik, Yogesh Golwalkar

    Rajasthan Royals: Shane Watson (captain), Abhishek Nayar, Ajinkya Rahane, Ankit Nagendra Sharma, Ben Cutting, Deepak Hooda, Dhawal Kulkarni, Dishant Yagnik, James Faulkner, Kane Richardson, Karun Nair, Pravin Tambe, Rahul Tewatia, Rajat Bhatia, Sanju Samson, Steven Smith, Stuart Binny, Tim Southee, Vikramjeet Malik, Chris Morris, Juan Theron, Barinder Singh Saran, Dinesh Salunkhe, Sagar Trivedi, Pardeep Sahu.

    Match starts at 8 PM IST
