1. Dougie: Another great performance. Superstar of CSK Bowling Unit.
2. Badri: Without making noise, Badri is staking claim for the highest run-scorer in this IPL. Produced a beautiful innings today and rewarded the team management for sending him at No:3. Hope he produces more such innings for CSK.
3. Raina: Nice to see him spend some time in the innings. He is bound to back to his IPL form soon.
1. Selection of Kulasekara: I was flummoxed by the selection of Kulasekara as an all-rounder in the team. If Albie is injured, the team requires to pick either Faf or Styris (who can bowl 2-3 overs. Raina can contribute the rest). I would have preferred Yo Mahesh/Tyagi, Faf, Tim Southee to come in the place of Jakati, Albie and Randiv in this match. Thanks to Badri's innings, CSK did not have to deal with the weak lower order. Hope the team does not repeat this mistake if Albie is still injured for the next match.
Fan's Man of the Match: Dougie - For the great bowling, that helped CSK to dominate the match.
After seeing Ishant's performance today, how do you rate CSK's chances against Deccan Chargers?
