What an innings from Hussey! His innings allowed the other batsmen to go after the other bowlers. Also collectively, the team paced their innings brilliantly. With Hussey coming in, Chennai Super Kings batting looks rock solid now. The batting depth & strength would be crucial while chasing in crunch games.
Hope the team now follows-up this win with another win at Kochi on Monday.
1. Hussey: Good to see Hussey in good nick. Now it is time for Raina to contribute substantially and move higher among the top run-getters in the tournament.
2. Southee: Southee's first two overs for 8 runs in the fielding restriction period - ensured that the target was always out of reach for Royal Challengers Bangalore.
3. Randiv & Ashwin: Bowled well in the middle overs and carried on the good work of Southee in the early overs.
1. Jakati: Considering that Royal Challengers Bangalore decided to go after Jakati, he should have taken more wickets.
Fan's Man of the Match: Hussey
BTW, anybody know why Bollinger missed today's game. My assumption is that he is not yet 100% fit. If so, when is he expected to be fit?
