With backs against the wall, Chennai Super Kings needed heroes. They found two on Tuesday against RCB, but they weren’t the usual suspects. CSK vs RCB
Shivam Dube and Robin Uthappa partnership CSK vs RCB
Shivam Dube and Robin Uthappa are not the expensive hotshots of this CSK group. Yet they showed that they can turn it on when required. In 12.1 overs, they set up 165 runs, which assisted CSK with blasting away to 216/4 and score up their first win of the time after four straight misfortunes.
With 36/2 in the seventh over, the stage appeared to be set for another CSK battle. The RCB bowlers had smothered the top-request and the two stars. Ruturaj Gaikwad and Moeen Ali – were back in the hovel. That is when Uthappa (88 off 50 balls) and Dube (95 off 46 balls) dominated.
Dube has played a ton of his cricket at the DY Patil Stadium and he knows what’s in store from the pitch. Uthappa, then again, is a characteristic clock of the ball, and when it is his day, it’s challenging to keep the Karnataka man calm.
RCB Chasing a massive total
Pursuing 217, RCB was moved back by CSK’s Lankan ‘secret’ spinner Mahesh Theeksana (4-33). After the wickets of openers Faf du Plessis and Anuj Rawat in the Powerplay, he got debutant Suyash Prabhudessai and left-hander, Shahbaz Ahmed, out following their savvy, little appearances.
Dinesh Karthik’s 14-ball 34 towards the finish of RCB innings infused some fervor into the game however CSK were not to be denied a merited triumph, by 23 runs CSK vs RCB
However, this CSK fightback was about Dube and Uthappa. The pair had concluded that they wouldn’t permit RCB’s two spinners, Shahbaz Ahmed and Glenn Maxwell , settle. Both realize that one side of the ground is more limited. So they chose to send off into their shots with definitely no dread.
They continued to associate and the ball began to vanish into the stands. Medium-pacer Akash Deep missing the mark on nuance and astuteness to stop the progression of runs while wrist-spinner Wanindu Hasaranga couldn’t exactly figure where to bowl to this pair.
RCB missing Harshal Patel
One player who might have had an effect at this stage for RCB was medium-pacer Harshal Patel. He is the main bowler in this line-up who can land the yorker and bowl the more slow ball actually. Yet he wasn’t accessible in light of the fact that he had left the air pocket following his sister’s passing last Saturday.
Indeed, even Mohammed Siraj, a decent red-ball bowler, continued to bowl length balls and all Dube and Uthappa did was hitting through the line. He once had Uthappa trapped in the profound, however that also was a no ball.
While Uthappa at last excused in the nineteenth over, Dube was on the pursuit for a century. He hit two sixes in the last over bowled by Josh Hazelwood. Yet he was unable to associate the last ball. In any case, the harm had previously been finished.
