Before the Chennai Super Kings versus Kolkata Knight Riders match on Tuesday, protesters regarding the issue of Cauvery Water, Rowdies came and behaved badly. CSK came to play at Cheapuk, Chennai after a gap of 2 years and started beating loyal fans of Chennai Super Kings.
During the match also, there was some bad behaviour from the fans as they throw shoes to Jadeja and South African captain Faf du Plessis. The crowd support at Chennai was amazing as they enjoyed a great game of cricket. Andre Russell 88* off 36 balls helped KKR post a massive total of 202 for 6 in 20 overs.
Chasing 203, Chennai Super Kings Shane Watson and Rayadu added 75 runs for the first wicket in 5.5 overs. Sam Billings also came with a cameo scoring 56 runs off 23 balls which provided momentum. With 17 runs required off 6 balls, Bravo scored a six and Ravindra Jadeja hit a six of the 5th ball to give CSK a 5 wicket win.
The Protestors came and trashed the people who were wearing Chennai Super Kings fans. BCCI is likely to move CSK matches out of Chennai. The ticket sales for their next home match against Rajasthan Royals to be played on 20th April have been put on hold according to Tamil Nadu Cricket Association.
Chennai Super Kings have won both of their matches. Bravo played a blinder of innings during the opening match of the tournament against Mumbai Indians. In yesterday’s match, chasing a massive total 203, CSK batsmen played with positive intent and won their second match.
Before their first home match, Chennai saw massive protests yesterday. By the way, things took place in yesterday’s match against KKR, it is a big blow for CSK fans to again see their stars.
