Kolkata Knight Riders almost won the game against Delhi Capitals with Eoin Morgan taking the charge but it was a little too late for the World Cup-winning Captain to change pursuits for his side. On the other hand, Chennai Super Kings looked absolutely in control with their opening pair putting up a ‘Fafulous Shanesational’ performance that lifted the spirits of the team-high as they defeated KXIP by 10 wickets. It’s the clash between 2 very strong teams that have their own struggles but on their day can defeat any opposition.
