Twitter has a field day after CSKvsRR match!

Though, Chennai Super Kings won the match by 4 wickets, MS Dhoni lost his reputation of being calm in every situation. All thanks to that brilliant leader of theirs in MS Dhoni.

The cool and calm temperament of the former captain of the Indian Cricket Team has not only earned him applause from the fans and experts off the field, but it has also helped him win a lot of trophies on it. MS made his worldwide debut at the age of 23 against Bangladesh in December 2004, before gradually climbing up the ladder and captaining probably the strongest Indian side of all time. Ravindra Jadeja could be crucial today for CSK.

KKR have had a slight blip in their otherwise flawless IPL campaign. Their 50 was brought up soon after the Powerplay, and the 100 came up shortly after the 13 as KKR were setting up for a final flourish, but CSK's spinners struck at regular intervals and didn't allow the home side to get away.

Therefore, Dhoni's current form has forced me to pick him ahead of Karthik. He has scored 214 runs in five matches at an astounding average of 107.

Two balls later the England all-rounder looked to have redeemed himself, responding brilliantly with an inswinging yorker that pierced Dhoni's defences to hand the Royals the initiative. In the second encounter, the defending champions seem to have an edge over the opposition. Such numbers in the T20 format do nothing but force you to pick them in your Dream11 team.

Bowlers: For KKR, Piyush Chawla, Kuldeep Yadav, Lockie Ferguson, Prasidh Krishna are the top picks among bowlers while for CSK, Deepak Chahar, Harbhajan Singh, Imran Tahir, Scott Kuggeleijn will lead the bowling unit.


But KKR need their batting to click as a whole, especially skipper Dinesh Karthik, their leading run-getter last season.

The spin bowling department of the Knight Riders also should make it count when it matters the most.

"To be honest, we have pretty much moved on".

In the nail-biting match, CSK scripted their sixth win in seven games on Thursday as they gunned down a modest 152 run target in a dramatic final over. But they put pressure on our batsmen and they were able to build pressure right to the end.

But Tahir, aided by some brilliant catching from Faf du Plessis and the substitute Dhruv Shorey, made inroads removing Nitish Rana (21) and Robin Uthappa (0) in space of two balls.
