====================================================================================

Brief Summary:

And the mighty Chennai Super Kings have won the game in the most emphatic fashion. 138 was not a huge total, but in case if Punjab held on to the few chances which came their way, it could have been a different story. Michael Hussey didn’t play a flawless innings but he was extremely brutal in the latter half of his innings. Murali Vijay too played a sensible innings and made sure to carry the bat throughout the innings. This win will do wonders for the entire dugout and we need not mention what they are capable of in the Indian Premier League.

====================================================================================

====================================================================================

After losing the first game against Mumbai Indians, two-time IPL winners Chennai Super Kings will come all guns blazing against Kings Xi Punjab in their second game of the Indian Premier League on Wednesday.

Both the teams have so far played just one match each. Mohali would be high on confidence after they registered their first victory against Pune Warriors India. The Gilchrist-led side comprehensively defeated Pune Warriors after they were bundled for just 99 runs in 20 overs. Punjab easily chased down the target with eight wickets in hands as Manan Vohra scored an unbeaten 43 from 18 balls.

Chennai Super Kings on the other hand lost their opening game at the MA Chidambaram Stadium by nine runs as none of their batsmen could bat long enough to support MS Dhoni, who almost won the game single-handedly. Chasing 149 to win, Chennai at one stage were wobbling after losing six of their batsmen with less that100 runs on board, after which Dhoni began his incredible counter-attack and was dismissed in the final over after Pollard pulled off a stunner at deep midwicket.
