The Week That Was

If you are a Chennai Super Kings fan, this should have been a great week for you... 3 Indian CSK players  made us proud with their performance in the current series against Sri Lanka.

  • Badrinath made full use of the opportunity presented to him and played a match winning knock for the team
  • Dhoni's knocks was crucial for both the victories
  • Raina played another good knock for the team, setting up a good score in the 3rd match.

Of these players, Badrinath's match winning knock in the second one day international against Sri Lanka brought the most cheer to my heart. He showed his abilities and put up his case for a permanent spot in the Indian team. Hope he strengthens his case in the further matches.

Dhoni Likely to miss Champions League Final

While we may not know the composition of the Chennai Super Kings team for the Champions League, a top franchise official has confirmed that Dhoni may miss Champions League Final if Chennai Super Kings qualifies. Read the full story on Cricinfo for detailed coverage.

V.B. Chanderasekhar also confirms that CSK won't be looking for new players since most of its current squad would be available for the tournament.

Two Months Has Flown By..

CSK Player Making their Mark
It is two months since I last updated a post in this blog. A lot of things have happened in the mean time. Based on their IPL performances, Gony made his debut for India, Raina cemented his place in the playing eleven and Badrinath got a call for the Indian team. [I just hope that Badrinath gets an opportunity to play in the series]

Even non-Indian Chennai Super Kings players are playing well for their countries. [Muralitharan is sizzling for his nation, Oram scored a fighting century, etc.. ] So be rest assured about the performance of our team for the next season.

Champions League
With regard to Champions League, the boards finally took a call. Indian Board's persuasion won the day. So we could expect a better T20 action from December 3 - 10 when the best teams of the world compete to show their class. Thanks to champions League, we do not have wait for 8 more months to see our team in action.

Personally, I believe my posting frequency will increase as we slowly approach the inauguration of Champions League..

In the last two months, I made a transition from a care-free student to a much more responsible corporate personality. So it took a bit of a time for me to settle in. Hope I will start blogging more as i slowly start getting into a routine. Apologies to anyone who visited this blog during these two months...
