Podcast Suno Dil Se: The way Mahendra Singh Dhoni made Chennai Super Kings the champion of IPL 2021, it becomes clear that IPL means MS Dhoni and Dhoni means Chennai Super Kings. Kings). It is a different matter that Kolkata Knight Riders started for the 193 run chase, which at one time had also damaged CSK’s heart.
New Delhi. Welcome, I am here to cover the whole week’s cricket enthusiasts. Accept Sanjay Banerjee’s salutations – listen from the heart. Dhoni’s bat has been silent for a long time. Despite this, the trust of the team management of Chennai Super Kings in him did not diminish. The reason for this is no longer hidden from anyone. In Indian cricket, Mahendra Singh Dhoni is considered to be the best mind of the shortest format of cricket, and Dhoni has proved it once again. The way he made Chennai Super Kings the champion in the 14th edition of IPL, it is clear that IPL means Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Dhoni means Chennai Super Kings. In the final match last night, Chennai Super Kings defeated Kolkata Knight Riders to make themselves champions for the fourth time. If there is thrill in IPL, then this thrill should go till the final and the same thing happened. It is a different matter that Chennai won the final by a margin of 27 runs, but the pace remained in the match. As Kolkata started for the 193-run chase, at one point the heart of CSK also came to the fore, but under the pressure of Dhoni’s mammoth score, the Knight Riders finally had to crack. Kolkata could not get a win even after an explosive start from Shubman Gill and Venkatesh Iyer. As soon as both were dismissed, the rest of the batsmen were scattered like cards. Kolkata’s solid start in the final and even Shubman Gill’s 51 and Venkatesh Iyer’s 50 could not help the Knight Riders win.
Earlier, Rituraj Gaikwad made 32 and Faf du Plessis made a solid start of 86 runs and strengthened the foundation of Chennai. Du Plessis, playing his hundredth match, was awarded the Man of the Final award. Du Plessis often played such innings when needed and this time also he did the same.
The way Dhoni used the bowlers in his 300th T20 captaincy match was brilliant. Against Kolkata, everyone to whom he handed the ball took wickets. Shardul Thakur proved right to join Team India in place of Axar Patel by taking three wickets in the final as well.
Last season, CSK’s team was at number seven at the bottom of the league, and this time they won the title, that is, in just two seasons under the leadership of Dhoni, the team has traveled from floor to floor. The Chennai team management constantly expressed confidence in Dhoni, then Dhoni on his team, which is why CSK changed the least number of players during the league, and he continued to do well. Not only this, Dhoni’s team was also called Dad’s Army, but after all, this team won the match due to the deadly balance of experience and youthful enthusiasm.
Kolkata, on the other hand, may have lost in the final, but this should not be seen as its failure. With all the strong teams, he traveled till the final and Eoin Morgan also showed that like Dhoni, he is also a skilled master of strategy. By the way, like Dhoni, Morgan’s bat also did not have any special effect during the league.
Delhi Capitals also emerged this time. But by leading the whole journey from the front, luck did not support him in the knockout round itself. A mistake in the second qualifier deprived him of the final. It was a setback for skipper Rishabh Pant, but it is also true that he has proved himself to a great extent.
Virat Kohli’s Royal Challengers Bangalore had a chance to do better this time. Especially when the team got a place in the playoffs, the hope was that Kohli, who was captaining in his last season, might be able to win a title by the way, but it was not possible.
This time the condition of Mumbai Indians was bad from start to finish. Despite winning the last league match, the most successful IPL team could not reach the play-offs. It was a big disappointment for his fans. Rohit Sharma could not walk and the most successful IPL captain could not impress his fans before getting a possible chance to captain the Indian T20 team.
Punjab Kings did not like the name change again and Lokesh Rahul being in form did not work. In the rest of the teams, Rajasthan and Hyderabad also disappointed.
Now T20 World Cup is to start from tomorrow. On the basis of the best performance in the IPL, the Indian team will miss two young, but formidable batsmen, Rituraj Gaikwad and Venkatesh Iyer. Rituraj is also the highest run scorer. Harshal Patel of RCB has taken the most wickets.
By the way, what is the effect of IPL in the World Cup, it remains to be seen. This time India has to play its first match in the new jersey after a week. When India and Pakistan are against each other on the cricket field, there is no spark, it is fireworks. The Indian team will also play two warm-up games before the match, which will help in building coordination. This match is the most important for India, till date this team has been winning the World Cup from Pakistan. Meaning the pressure is on India.
The bowling has definitely improved with Shardul Thakur coming into the team. India has included some players for the net for better practice of its players. Apart from Avesh Khan, Umran Malik and Venkatesh Iyer are included.
In this time’s World Cup, the winner will get 12 crores while the total prize money is 42 crores. Also, the ICC has implemented the DRS rule for the first time in this T20 World Cup to be held in UAE and Oman. Apart from this, a break of two and a half minutes has also been kept. Namibia and Papua New Guinea will play in the T20 World Cup for the first time.
In the first leg of the World Cup being held from tomorrow, 8 countries will start with round one i.e. qualifiers in two groups. The qualifier round will be completed on 22 October. Two teams from both the groups will play in the Super 12 round where the top eight teams are already present.
Meanwhile, Indian women have completed their tour of Australia. Despite drawing the Test, India have lost the ODI and T20 series. After the performance of this series, the ranking of Indian players has fallen. First Mithali Raj lost the first place in One Day, now Shefali Verma has also lost the top spot in T20. Despite this, India has eight players playing in the Big Bash League that started in Australia. Playing such a large number of Indians in foreign leagues can be called an achievement.
That’s all in today’s podcast, we will be back with cricket enthusiasts next week, till then allow Sanjay Banerjee, and keep going with News18.
