Dubai: This year’s IPL is turning out to be a disaster for Chennai Super Kings as they slipped to sixth after an out-and-out loss to Royal Challengers Bangalore. In the past few years, Royal Challengers have become a team with misfortune despite being loaded with indisputable talents like Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers. The Bangalore fans loyalty towards their never wavered throughout the years but were left with big questions year after year. The Bangalore team may finally reward their fans in this year’s edition of IPL as they slipped into the Top 4 position and could play in the play-offs if they keep up their good work.

Chennai Super Kings enjoyed as one of the most if not the most popular teams in Indian Premier League with star skipper MS Dhoni leading his team crushing opponents. But it was the current Indian skipper Virat Kohli did the crushing for once. He scored a magnificent 90 runs off 52 balls and the team managed to post a decent score of 169 losing four wickets in the process. But the total proved to be cumbersome for Chennai Super Kings as they never looked comfortable in the second innings. Established players like Shane Watson and Faf du Plessis left their team in the lurch and there was brief revival of hope when the ever dependable MS Dhoni came to bat but soon fell to his Indian teammate Yuzvendra Chahal. Chris Morris turned out to be the bane for Chennai as he grabbed three wickets sending out some of the most important players in CSK squad such as Ravindra Jadeja, Sam Curran and Dwayne Bravo. He managed to take out Narayan Jagadeesan who was steadily becoming comfortable at the crease.

All in all, there were flashes of Virat Kohli’s genius which was usually reserved when he was wearing a blue jersey rather than a red one. If he keeps his form, Royal Challengers team and their fans would not be considered insane if they dream of going to the playoffs or even clinch the title.
