Last night, Chennai Super Kings the table toppers for the ongoing Indian Premier League season had a bit of shock when they played against the Kolkata Knight Riders. It was a crucial game as KKR who had won four of their eight games, were wary of the challenge that the CSK led by the great Mahendra Singh Dhoni in scintillating form puts across them.
Winning the toss, KKR captain Dinesh Karthik asked Chennai to bat first and had some really good plans for CSK batsmen.Dinesh cleverly used his wrist spin trio of Piyush Chawla, Sunil Narine, and Kuldeep Yadav with specific plans against each batsman.
CSK were restricted for a score of 177, despite good performances from Shane Watson, Faf du Plessis, and MS Dhoni. KKR, then breezed past this score in 18th over, chasing it down in just 17.4 overs purely because of the way Sunil Narine, Shubhman Gill, and Dinesh Karthik batted.
KKR's performance against the favourites has gone down very well with their fans and owners, and their most famous co-owner, Bollywood Actor Shahrukh Khan is very happy too.
Shahrukh took to Twitter to congratulate his team on a stellar performance and tweeted with a caption, "Calm & collected win like Captain @Dineshkarthik himself & my babies gaining in every match @realshubmangill @shivammavi23 &Narine is Narine"
