Chennai Super Kings win toss, opt to field

Mahendra Singh Dhoni

Dhoni's 100th Indian Premier League (IPL) win against RR was marred by an incident where he lost his cool dramatically towards the end of the game, drawing criticism from different corners.

KKR vs CSK in IPL 2019 will be broadcast on Sunday (April 14) from 4:00 PM onwards.

The all-rounder duo which I have picked is the West Indies and Kolkata Knight Riders pair of Sunil Narine and Andre Russell.

"He's big asset as he can swing the new ball and he's got very good control as well".

After the match, MSD took his daughter Ziva for a walk on the ground.

Karthik, who is also eyeing a World Cup berth, will be under a lot of pressure to score runs personally and also turn it around for KKR on the eve of the India team selection. Suresh Raina then joined the on-field batsman Faf du Plessis.

Royal Challengers snap losing run with 8-wicket win
Royal Challengers Bangalore are in a dire state and have not won even a single match out of their last six . Kings XI Punjab's Chris Gayle plays a shot during the IPL match against Royal Challengers Bangalore .

The ultra-economical Deepak Chahar has been key to Chennai's bowling unit, and is the second highest wicket-taker with 10 wickets, also setting the record for the most number of dot balls in an innings in the last match against Rajasthan Royals. In the end, the no ball wasn't given. Watson can go ballistic at the top of the order on such a surface which makes him a good candidate for being the vice-captain. Narine had barely got off the mark when Lynn had begun teeing off, and raced to his half-century in no time. Suresh Raina and Ravindra Jadeja stood out in the chase, saving CSK from what looked by a defeat from the home team.

A 200-plus total looked imminent with Lynn looking unsafe and Russell starting to explode with a boundary and a six off Tahir. His 51-ball stay included 7 fours and 6 sixes. When he had arrived at the crease, CSK still needed 41 runs in four overs, and he knocked off majority of those runs riding his luck and with some aggressive batting.

But Tahir, aided by some brilliant catching from Faf du Plessis and the substitute Dhruv Shorey, made inroads removing Nitish Rana (21) and Robin Uthappa (0) in space of two balls.

Former Australia opener Michael Slater, who was commentating in the match, was shocked by what he saw. At the time of his dismissal, it seemed CSK wouldn't pull this one off.

Chris Lynn reached 1000 runs for KKR in the VIVO IPL. So, Imran Tahir and Kuldeep Yadav could be the X-factors.
