IPL V – Chennai Super Kings Vs Deccan Chargers

CSK Puts Up the Highest Total in the Current IPL Season So Far


Ravindra Jadeja, the Architect of CSK's Victory

Chennai Super Kings, the defending champions in the IPL, compensated its loss in the opening match against the Mumbai Indians by a superb and well crafted victory against Deccan Chargers at Visakhapatnam yesterday. The architect of the victory was Ravindra Jadeja who was the top scorer with 48 runs and also took 5 wickets, giving away only 16 runs in his allotted 4 overs. Srinivasan, the CSK owner, should be a proud man now for his decision to acquire Jadeja for a whopping $2 million – the highest paid for any player in the current tournament.

CSK Puts Up the Highest Total in the Current IPL Season So Far

The 74-run win has boosted the confidence of CSK team and its captain M S Dhoni. Jadeja’s all round ability eclipsed Dwayne Bravo’s blistering knock of 43 not out off only 18 balls with five sixes. Jadeja’s 48 runs came off 29 balls with 3 boundaries and 3 sixes. Du Plessis produced the necessary momentous start for CSK when he scored 39 runs off 25 balls with four sixes and one boundary hit. CSK put up 193 runs on the board which was the highest total in the current IPL season so far. This proved to be a more than enough total for the CSK as Deccan Chargers caved in under pressure to the accurate bowling of Ravindra Jadeja.

Deccan Chargers Lacks Fighting Spirit

Deccan Chargers never looked like chasing and winning the challenging target of 194. In fact the top scorer of the innings was the captain Cameron White who scored just 23 runs. It is not the defeat that matters for Deccan Chargers because wins and defeats are part and parcel of the game. Sometimes a side loses even after playing well and sometimes a side wins because of the opponent’s mistakes. One cannot criticise a team for losing a match, however important that match may be. But it is the manner of defeat that is a worrying factor for the Deccan Chargers. Deccan Chargers never even attempted to win. They looked like a bunch of toddlers who have come to play for time passing. This is the most worrisome aspect as far as Deccan Chargers is concerned. KXIP made at least an attempt to win the match against Rajasthan Royals. Even this attempt was not there on the part of Deccan Chargers. They merely succumbed to the situation and allowed CSK to dominate them Deccan Chargers should introspect and change their attitude from the next match onwards. Fighting spirit is needed to survive in the IPL. That is sadly lacking in Deccan Chargers.
