CSK Takes Late But Easy Win


Teams like CSK just need one win to get things back on the track. Since their heavy defeat in their first game against KXIP, CSK has done nothing wrong, well almost. Just when things were in the control in the game with 36 runs needed off 30 balls with 8 wickets in hand plus dew showing its presence, it should have been a walk in the park for CSK but somehow they managed a panic out of nothing and with two wickets in an over by Bhuvaneshwar Kumar and one dirt cheap over by Steyn took the game to the final over but only the calmness of Dhoni helped CSK to seal a relatively easy win in the end.
