IPL 2020: Here's how Twitter reacted as CSK stole the show against KKR
Chennai Super Kings are already out of contention for the playoffs. Meanwhile, they registered their fifth win of the tournament in 13 matches, as they stay at the bottom of the table. Nonetheless, a win more could still allow them to finish as high as fifth.
Former champions Chennai Super Kings (CSK) have endured a horrific season, failing to qualify for the playoffs. Nonetheless, they refused to give up, as they tamed fellow former champions Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), in Match 49 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020.
Being played in Dubai, CSK overpowered KKR by six wickets. With this win, KKR have a dicey situation at hands. While CSK are already out of the contention for playoffs, they would be looking to act as party spoilers, besides having a chance at finishing as high as fifth. Meanwhile, we take a look at how Twitter reacted following their win on Thursday.
The Team India coach would like to refer Ravindra Jadeja as one of the horsemen. WOW!
Whereas CSK veteran Suresh Raina referred to Jadeja as 'Bapu'. We hope he didn't mean Mahatma Gandhi.
Also, English woman cricketer Kate Cross celebrated CSK's win, as she believes that as long as CSK have Jadeja, they don't need to fear.
Meanwhile, Jadeja's former franchise Rajasthan Royals (RR) did not back out from referring to him as a Royal. Well...rightfully so.
Everyone seems to be in awe of Jadeja, especially for his back-to=back maximums.
Let's not forget Rituraj Gaikwad's knock of 72, as this user rightfully gave him the due credit.
And, this user gives Jadeja all the respect by referring to him as Sir. Ok, now that's way too much. Don't you think?
On the other hand, this user feels that CSK should have picked local lad Varun Chakravarthy during the auction, as he could have turned the fortunes around for the side. Hmm!
Consequently, this user is making fun of KKR head coach Brendon McCullum's notes. Don't get too overboard, man!
Match summary: Winning the toss, CSK skipper MS Dhoni elected to field first. KKR were off to a good start, and courtesy Rana's 87, they managed to post 172/5, while Lungi Ngidi claimed 2/34. In reply, it was CSK opener Ruturaj Gaikwad, whose unbeaten knock of 80 allowed them to chase the target down, as a final ball six off Ravindra Jadeja did it for them.
