Chennai Super Kings have forced their way into the IPL finals. They played wonderful cricket to wrap up the game quickly. Initially it was their bowlers who stuck to their tasks. After being made to field first, Chennai Super Kings did everything right. They picked up crucial wickets at the top that opened up the gate.

Manpreet Gony was the pick of the bowlers. He bowled a tight line and length and never gave anything to the batsman. All the Chennai bowlers extracted good bounce from the wicket and were right on the money from ball one. The fielding was great and equally supported the bowler’s efforts. Punjab looked in all sorts of trouble from the begining and never recovered back at all. They have to blame their own self for the loss. Dhoni shuffled his bowlers regularly and also started the proceedings by tossing the ball to Muttiah Muralidaran to surprise everyone.

They managed to restrict King’s XI to a paltry 112/8. Later Parthiv Patel and swashbuckling Suresh Raina smashed the King’s bowlers all over the park. Raina was particularly ruthless and smashed some sensational blows. He looked in ominous touch and his devastating knock took the game away from the King’s Xi Punjab. Parthiv Patel, on the other hand, paced his innings beautifully and ensured that ni further damage was done to them after Vidyut’s fall.

What a game we’ve had? This makes a 100% record for Chennai Super Kings against King’s XI Punjab and also they give themselves a chance to take a revenge against the ravaging Rajasthan Royals who have already made it to the Finals of the IPL. Looking forward for tomorrow’s game and my anxiety levels are very high.
