A Victory that not only showcased the potential of the team but also reassured the fans.
1. Dhoni in Form: Dhoni showed that he still posses the form of the practice matches and took the game away from Kolkata Knight Riders single-handely.
2. Badri: 40+ runs scored by him was crucial. But the huge positive is that he did not sacrifice his wicket for other aggressive batsman coming lower down the order. (Something he used to do in earlier seasons)
3. Albie: Albie's first over was the final nail in the coffin of the defeat. Hope he keeps up his bowling performance for the team.
1. Tyagi Out: It was sad to see Tyagi dropped out of the team after a bad performance. And Gony, who came in for Tyagi, blew hot and cold in his 3 overs. I am still waiting to see those in-swingers from Tyagi that made VB choose him for the team.
2. Haydos: Haydos would be disappointed after his performance today. Expect him to come up with a powerful performance sooner rather than later.
Fan's Man of the Match: Dhoni, who converted 135 total to a 165 total.
