It is Evident that in this format of the Tournament, what is Important that getting together as a Team, Performing when needed which matters the most. There is no Doubt that MSD, The Team knows it better than anyone else.

Looking into the Game, the Team did well in bowling with contribution from everyone, except that Bravo had to take the stick from his Caribbean Counterpart. On the other hand Sachin and Ponting’s getting out cheaply, came in a Blessing for MI that Pollard got to face close to 40 balls and change the course of the Match. Dinesh Karthik continued his form where he left in the last game, before Bravo got him. Bhajji sticked on with Pollard to put up a competitive Score on Board.

The CSK had a slow start as usual, but what hurt the Team was that none from the top order failed to score big which took the game away from CSK. But with MSD at the Crease, he showed that no Target is too far. Yes, the Helicopter Landed on the first match in Chepauk and Oh Dear, the Crowd was all Whistles, on their feet and he made it look so simple to take it to the last over fighting a lone battle.

It boiled down to 12 of the last over with MSD cruising, before Pollard took a Stunner in the Boundary Ropes and ended CSK’s Hopes. Pollard a deserved Man of the Match, but the highlight of the Starter in Chennai is that the Helicopter has landed earlier than always in MA Chidambaram Stadium. A quick fire 50, 3 Sixes and 5 Fours, MSD nearly finished off the game and Set the Crowds on Fire. Forget the slow start, time to focus on what the Boys need to work on and improvise as the tournament progresses, as the facts say that it is important that who finishes on Top at the End.

Fans have a few worries, but more to Celebrate to see Captain Cool, MSD in awesome form right from the Start. Let’s Move on to Mohali. Come #Whistle4CSK in the Coming Games and let’s cheer for a third IPL Title. #Whistlepodu
