IPL 2013 Chronicles – CSK vs RCB – 13th April

Matches with RCB is always a cracker of a contest and what an exhibition of cricket. I was surprised to see Dhoni opt to chase, traditionally it has been tough to chase under lights in Chepauk and the pitch tends to get slower in the second half. But anyways, when thala Dhoni decides something….we believe there is a reason to it.

Gayle – have never seen him fire in Chepauk and he fell again. Kohli was out in the middle overs, instead of choosing to walk, he stayed on…this guy has talent, but his temperament is not going to do any good to his career aspirations, esp if he is looking to become a captain. Being aggressive is fine, but look at Dhoni in comparison…such a cool character, no wonder he is called Captain Cool…he is remarkably cool under such tense situations, when you feel like falling off your chair.

And finally, it all boiled down to Sir RJ, who made it count…what a match. RCB, you need to learn to be more disciplined.
