Nail-biter to start off IPL 2018

Wow, what we witnessed at the Wankhede was just amazing, CSK made a champion comeback, as it was the author of the champion style who has taken CSK home.

Winning the toss and electing to bowl first, CSK started off brilliantly. MSD the think tank was fully functional right from the ball one as he chooses the youngster Deepak Chahar to start the proceedings for Chennai.

CSK cleans up the openers within the power play and Mumbai was put on the backfoot right from the start, but it was the youngsters Ishan and Suryakumar who took them out from the sinking ship and made sure that they got into a bigger ship to sail to their destination, and at the end of first innings they have reached the bank with 165 runs on a tricky Wankhede pitch.

When CSK came out to bat, they were never really in the chase as MI kept picking up CSK's warriors; the young talent in the form of Mayank Markande set the tone for MI by picking up 3 wickets for a mere 23 runs in 4 overs.

The fans started to lose their hope, the shoulders started to drop, hopes seemed to die; then took off the Bravo plane, smashing his maiden IPL 50, Dwayne the entertainer Bravo scored 68 runs from just 30 balls, and it was the injured Kedar on one knee finished it for CSK by smashing a six and a four of the Fizz in the ultimate over of the match.

All hail the mighty CSK for their return to the IPL with a bang, bravo Bravo for his antics.

Until tomorrow, have a good night.

Substantial Delhi Daredevils

The team which has seen a lot of ups and downs in terms of their core stability is Delhi Daredevils. With the likes of Sehwag, Gambhir, Nehra, and Mishra, Delhi started off their campaign in 2008 as one of the favorites to win the championship. However, they just fell short of a couple of steps to clinch the title.

To further strengthen the things next year, Delhi signs in Dirk Nannes the quicky from Australia. Under the leadership of Gambhir DD topped the table and yet again dropped short of their maiden championship title.

From 2010 until 2017, Delhi has faced a lot of criticism for not performing up to their standards. Reaching playoffs only once in a span of 8 years is a record that needs to be flushed down the gutter. 2012, was one of their successful seasons among the last eight, thanks to the likes of Kevin Pietersen, Mahela Jayawardena, and Ross Taylor. 

With Delhi having a capricious core, it was all up to the management to establish a steady and a solid core; and they have …
