CSK Starts The Indian Leg With An Easy Win Over KKR


The KKR woes continue in India as well. Their captain is failing to lead from the front match after match and probably that is why they are unable to keep their act to gather. This was a rain shortened game and although KKR spinners did their job well, but still CSK managed a good score of 148 runs in 17 overs and only Robin Uthappa could challenge the CSK score at the beginning, but on the other end the wickets kept on falling and until Yusuf Pathan, who has hardly moved a muscle, this season suddenly came to the party and started hitting the ball out of the park but he was too late and KKR handed over an easy win to CSK in the end.
