The High-Five Moments




Michael Hussey

Michael Hussey

This is the fifth continuous victory for the roaring Lions of the Coromandel Coast. Won by eight wickets, sparing eight balls against the Rajasthan Royals with Michael Hussey’s partnership with Suresh Raina was most outstanding. The consistency has to be saluted. The Australian opener, Mike made it just from 55 balls, capturing the Man of the Match title in his kitty. This victory will be fifth home victory for the Chennai Super Kings, as long as the fans are at the M. A. Chidambaram Stadium, roaring for the ravage, yelling for the yellow, Dhoni and his men need not fear for anything.

Shane Warne and Dravid made the team RR strong, but not strong enough, the early dismissal of Murali would have made the local fans sulk, but Warne did not have anything to capitalize over it. The innings remained robust with concrete more than a century partnership. The situations were conducive for the Yellows Kings, naturally, yet the RR innings was a bit dramatized. Dravid played his typical Jammy style and produced numbers onto the board in a jiffy, along with Shane Watson. Dravid made an easy 50 from 37 balls, but turned a bit sluggish in making runs after Jakati dismissed Watson. From the 38th ball till the 66th, Dravid was able to make just 16 runs, drifting the run economy down. Jakati also gave the best bowling performance with 2-22.

The 148 chase was hard with average runs of 7.4 per over, but the team’s resilience to bounce back has increased with number of matches. As Dhoni mentioned in a match against Pune Warriors, CSK cannot afford to lose too many matches.

Bharathi Murali

Author:

Hello folks! I am Bharathi Murali, 20, a Chemical Engineering student who always look at journalists or journalism students with a little jealousy in my eyes. I belong to Coimbatore now put up in Chennai. Besides writing, blogging I like traveling (on my bike), photography and silence. I have strong belief in philosophy. With regard to sports I just love watching them on TV when it comes to playing them I have tried to play most of the Indian sports with shallow knowledge in each. I am also a part of the University Basketball team and guess more than scoring I take care of defence better and well known for the fouls that I generally commit! I blog at www.thebhavachakra.blogspot.com. In one line I have always admired Bhagat Singh more than Gandhi, I support radicalism!
