Chennai Super Kings vs Sunrisers Hyderabad IPL Final Match Report-2018

Shane Watson’s brilliant unbeaten 117 runs helped Chennai Super Kings beat Sunrisers Hyderabad by 8 wickets in the final of the IPL 2018 at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on Sunday.

Chasing a target of 179, CSK didn’t get of to the best of the starts as they lost Faf Du Plessis early for 10 runs.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar in the powerplay bowled a superb spell to put SRH on top during that particular phase.

After Du Plessis’ dismissal, Watson started his innings cautiously, but after settling down he looked unstoppable and reached his century in just 51 balls and hammered the SRH bowlers all over the park.

Suresh Raina chipped in with a crucial knock of 32 runs but it was Watson who stole the show and helped his team clinch their third IPL title.

Barring Rashid Khan and Bhuvneshwar, all other Sunrisers bowlers were taken to the cleaners.

Earlier after being put into bat by MS Dhoni, Sunrisers started badly, as they lost Shreevats Goswami who was run out early on for 5 runs after a horrible mix up in the 2nd over.

Shikhar Dhawan and Kane Williamson added 51 runs for the second wicket to bring their team back on track.

Just as both were threatening to take the game away, Jadeja gave CSK a much needed breakthrough by getting rid of Dhawan and Karn Sharma stuck by removing the dangerous looking SRH skipper who was stumped.

A quickfire knock from Shakib Al Hasan, Yusuf Pathan and a blitz from Carlos Brathwaite helped Hyderabad reach a competitive total of 178 runs.

Lungi Ngidi once again was the shinning star with the ball for Chennai with figures of 1/26 in his quota four overs.

Mumbai Indians vs Chennai Super Kings Preview- IPL 2018

The opening ceremony of the eleventh edition of the Indian Premier League will see arch rivals Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings clash and thus take a step forward in the quest for Championship.

Mumbai Indians who are known to be very poor starters, have lost all their opening five games of the fixtures.

Chennai Super Kings make a comeback to the IPL, after being suspended for two years.

Both the formidable teams CSK and MI would be gearing up at Wankhede Stadium to stamp their authority in the opening game.

Chennai Super Kings have won the IPL twice while Mumbai Indians has won three times.

Both the teams have played 22 matches against each other, with Mumbai Indians winning 12 times,and Chennai winning 10 times.

The last time the two teams clashed was in the year 2015, with Mumbai getting the better of Chennai.

We hope this game lives up to its billing, just as the Liverpool-Man City midweek Champions League did. That UCL tie was an enthralling one and leaves Pep Guardiola with several questions ahead of the second leg, as mentioned by the folks at the Manchester City news website mancitycore.com.

Mumbai had defeated Rising Pune Super Giants by one run to win the title in 2017.

Chadd Sayers First Test Wicket AB De Villiers 2018

Australia’s Chadd Sayers took his first Test wicket by removing South Africa’s star batsman AB de Villiers on the first day of the fourth test in Johannesburg on Friday.

Sayers, a replacement for the injured Mitchell Starc, joined the likes of John Hastings, Mohammad Irfan and Jasprit Bumrah as bowlers who got their maiden test scalp in the form of Proteas great De Villiers.

The South Australian paceman was the highest wicket taker in the Sheffield Shield in the 2016/17 season, picking up 62 scalps at an average of 19.

Sayers was criticised by Shane Warne on commentary, with the legendary spinner clearly unimpressed by the 30 year old’s speeds (consistently around the 120-130 kmph mark).

Chadd Sayers

He was however given the second new ball ahead of Pat Cummins by skipper Tim Paine and justified his selection by picking up both De Villiers and night watchman Kagiso Rabada in the same over. De Villiers edged a Sayers delivery to Paine and reviewed unsuccessfully after being given out while Rabada, too early into his shot, handed an easy catch to Matt Renshaw.
