KKR vs CSK: Nitish Rana Got Angry After The Defeat Against CSK Blamed This Player Publicly

Chennai Super Kings defeated Kolkata Knight Riders by 49 runs on Sunday and secured the top position in the points table. Kolkata Knight Riders captain Nitish Rana admitted that achieving such a big target was not accessible due to not getting a good start.

Nitish Rana said, “Our start was not good. We scored very few runs in the powerplay, and after scoring so few runs, it was not easy to achieve such a big target.”

Nitish Rana said that his team needs to learn from their mistakes, and we constantly repeat them instead of learning from them. Nitish Rana said, “Our team needs to learn from its mistakes. We are repeating the mistakes in a big tournament which is a problem. We are not improving our performance in the tournament. It is difficult to digest that 235 runs were scored on this pitch.”

Apart from this, Chennai Super Kings captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni said after defeating Kolkata Knight Riders by 49 runs in IPL on Sunday that his bowlers did a good job and kept the opposition team under constant pressure.

Talking about the match, after winning the toss, CSK’s Ajinkya Rahane (71 not out in 29 balls, five sixes, six fours) and Shivam Dube (50 runs in 21 balls, two fours, five sixes) shared an 85-run partnership in just 32 balls for the third wicket. Opener Devon Conway (56) scored a half-century apart from these two. He scored 235 runs, the highest score in T20 cricket at Eden Gardens.

In response, the Knight Riders team could only manage 188 runs for eight wickets despite half-centuries from Jason Roy (61 runs in 26 balls, five sixes, five fours) and Rinku Singh (53 not out in 33 balls, three fours, four sixes). Off-spinner Mahesh Teekshana took 32 wickets, while Tushar Deshpande took two wickets for 43 runs from Super Kings.

Dhoni said after the match, “Yes, fast bowlers and spinners are doing well. We always kept the pressure on the opposition team, and if you look at their batting order, they have big hitters in the lower order, and we respect them.”
