CKS Juggernaut Starts To Roll


The Chennai Super King’s emblem is Lion and once the lion tastes the blood than it can’t control. This is exactly what CSK does every time once they start to win the games one by another. Only once in IPL they had to work hard to reach the playoffs. This time also after losing their first game against KXIP which they should not have, CSK has done everything right and has won every game after that convincingly. In this game also the rain was in the air for the most of the time of the game, but CSK did not panic and kept their focus on the game even when they were behind the Duckworth Lewis. But in the end their famous batting line up to its fame and made the win look easy despite the rain threat was around.
