2 out of 2, then, for CSK. DC showed a semblance of a fight yesterday, but that was not enough to stop Dhoni’s boys, or should I say Dhoni’s men?
Here are some interesting statistics from the match:
- MS Dhoni now has 187 sixes in IPL, joint-second with AB de Villiers. The man at the top, Chris Gayle, is more than a 100 sixes clear (296)!
- Yesterday’s clash was CSK’s 150th game in IPL, out of which they have 92 games.
- Raina hit his 450th boundary in yesterday’s match, and is the third player to get to this landmark.
- This is CSK’s 5th consecutive win in IPL. Incidentally, the last match they lost was against DC (then Delhi Daredevils).
- Deepak Chahar has an economy of just 6.82 while bowling for CSK. For a bowler who bowls predominantly in the Powerplay, this is remarkable. Only Muralitharan and Ashwin have better economies, although by a very slight margin. Yesterday, Chahar again bowled a fine spell, giving away just 20 runs in his 4 overs, while taking a wicket as well.
