“His performance was best…” CSK’s skipper Ruturaj names the best performer in CSK vs DC clash

CSK’s skipper, Ruturaj Gaikwad, believes that the team failed to put up a decent show with the bat against the Delhi Capitals. The yellow army lost their first encounter of the season against Delhi by 20 runs.

CSK failed to get a good start in their chase of 192, and the batters failed to capitalize on the powerplay, which in turn was the difference between the two sides.

Speaking of the match, Gaikwad said,” “I was pretty much happy with the way they (the bowlers) came back after the start (powerplay). Restricting them to 191 was a good effort. The pitch was on the better side in the first inning. In the second inning, there was extra seam movement and a spongy bounce. I felt he (Rachin) was missing it by a big margin. We couldn’t get going in the first three overs, and that was the difference.”

After losing both openers in the powerplay, CSK faught back in the game brilliantly because of the 68-run partnership between Ajinkya Rahane and Daryl Mitchell.

However, it was Mukesh Kumar who had a phenomenal outing with the ball and helped his team beat CSK and get their first win of the season.

Speaking of the same, Gaikwad said, “At the halfway stage, it was getable. There was extra seam movement, and we couldn’t capitalize, and we were always behind. We didn’t get the big over to reduce the run rate.”
