CSK Ends MI’s Winning Streak at Home


If at all the fielders can have a bad day, it was in this match. Fielders on both the sides seemed to have pairs of greasy palms as they kept on dropping the catches and not only that helping them going across the boundary lines as well. The best example was of Samuel Badree who judged the catch perfectly till the ball passed through his waiting palms and fingers and went in to advertising hoardings.
