IPL moves to the fourth day and to a venue that it has not taken place in the last two years. Chennai Super Kings who were on a two-year hiatus are back in the IPL amidst the incredible support of the legion of followers that it has built in all these years. They will be hosting KKR at the Chidambaram Stadium which will be all painted in yellow.
Both the teams won their first matches in the IPL. CSK revived themselves back from the dead to defeat Mumbai Indians at the Wankhede stadium in the inaugural match of the IPL 2018. Kolkata Knight Riders meanwhile defeated the favored Royal Challengers Bangalore at the Eden Gardens in a thumping fashion. Here are the five things to look out for in the CSK versus KKR game.
1. Sunil Narine – Can Dhoni diffuse the bomb
Two years ago, Sunil Narine, the mysterious bowler was making every batsman look like a fool with the bag full of tricks of the spin variations. In a revolutionary move, Sunil Narine was sent to open the batting for the very first time by his Australian franchise team Melbourne Renegades and the rest, as they say, is a history.
Containing a batsman like Sunil Narine is no easy task. Consider him as a tailender and he will score a fifty before you take a look at the scorecard. Tomorrow he will open against Chennai Super Kings and it will be interesting to see MS Dhoni strategizes to stop the Narine Hurricane.
