Lucky11| IPL 2022: KKR Started Tremendously! Won Match Against CSK, MSD's 50 in Vain
KKR opened their series with a win against CSK yesterday night. They defeated CSK by six wickets in total which proved out to be a shining opening for them.
Ajinkya Rahane scored a brilliant 44 runs for chasing 132 runs. Shreyas Iyer scored 20 runs in the finishing line of the game to help the team win big!
Earlier, Umesh Yadav scored two wickets before Varun Chakravarthy and Andre Russell entered the wicket-taking column, leaving CSK on 61/5. But Ravindra Jadeja (26 *) and MS Dhoni (50 *) have done a commendable job of reviving Chennai's innings after premature strikes.
The duo pulled out 70 to help Chennai throw 131/5 in 20 overs.
Before the throw, Umesh took two and Russell and Chakravarthy registered one wicket each.
Chennai, one of the most consistent teams since the tournament's inception in 2008, had defeated Kolkata to lift its fourth IPL title last year.
So, this match proved to be beneficial for KKR this evening!
