After the disastrous batting performance in the last match, the batsmen redeemed them self today. Good to see the entire middle order contributing. It was good to see the team plucking a victory from the jaws of defeat. (Unlike the last time, when they did the vice-versa)
1. Dhoni Among Runs: Nice to see Dhoni among runs in the tournament. Expect him to continue the good form for the next two matches.
2. Team Selection: Finally Fleming got the team right. But in hindsight, Murali should have played instead of Jakati. Since 5 of the top six batsman of KXIP are left handers.
3. Ashwin: Another good performance by him. Turnaround in the second half was built on the performance of local lads - Ashwin & Vijay
4. Badri & Raina: Good Cameos by both of them. If CSK has to win this IPL, it would hugely dependent on Raina's performance. It was a good performance by Badri too. But he should not have allowed those 5 dot balls in a single Piyush over.
1. Dropped Catches: Dropped Catch of Shaun Marsh by Albie Morkel was the difference between 140+ score and 190+ score. That wicket would have made the match a lot easier to win.
2. Hayden: I believe it is time to drop Hayden from the team and ask either Hussey or Bailey to open for CSK.
