CSK vs RCB: Get IPL live score updates and highlights from the match between Chennai Super Kings and Royal Challengers Bangalore at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru.
Chennai Super Kings nature Devon Conway has sounded an portentous warning to his platoon’s opponents, saying his side has been aiming for 200- plus strike rates on good fur shells to put up assessing summations, which give them more chances of winning matches.
Monday was one similar day when the four- time title holders scored a mammoth 226 for 6 at the Chinnaswamy Stadium, and despite the rush from Royal contenders Bangalore (RCB) commander Faf du Plessis (62 off 33 balls) and Australian each- rounder Glenn Maxwell (76 off 36balls), CSK still managed to win by eight runs.
“Tonight (Monday) was a really good face to club on, so for us to get those big summations it’s about trying to produce a strike rate of around 200- plus, ” said Conway at the post-match press conference.
The New Zealander said that though he was some way off the 200- plus strike rate, he was happy Rahane (37 runs, 185 strike rate), Dube (52,192.59), Ambati Rayudu (14,233.33) and Moeen Ali (19 not out,211.11), had brilliant strike rates.
“I didn’t manage to achieve that (200- plus rate) but some of the work done by the other players, like Ajinkya, Dube, Rayudu and Moeen Ali in the end, they all minced in with really good strike rates and that’s what got us to a veritably competitive aggregate.
“That’s presumably the system on this kind of gate where it’s really good to club, ” added Conway, who scored at a strike rate of184.44.
The 31- time-old left- hand batter had a lot of appreciation for commander Mahendra Singh Dhoni for holding on to the two skiers behind the wholes to dismiss the two most dangerous batters Du Plessis and Maxwell.
The New Zealander said he was confident someone like Dhoni would no way fluff those skiers– one of the toughest catches to take in night games.
“Those (Faf and Maxwell) were veritably tough catches because it isn’t easy to catch balls that go straight over in the dark night. I was veritably lucky to have MS (Dhoni) with the gloves on because if there’s any person you want to take those tough chances, he’s presumably your joe. it was good for us (to) break the instigation of the innings and eventually helped us win the match, ” added Conway.
Conway indicated CSK players could have come under pressure while defending the big aggregate, which presumably led them to drop a couple of catches.
“No bone tries to drop catches on purpose, these effects be. I don’t know if there was pressure on the fielders or what it was. Thankfully, it wasn’t expensive for us but we ’ve got to keep rehearsing under pressure, take those partial openings. Thankfully, we sailed well and that helped form (the damage from) those dropped catches.
“Before we went on to the field, MS said we’re going to be put under pressure at times. The instigation that they (RCB) had was brilliant. Faf and Glenn put us under pressure but we always felt that by having 200- plus on the board, if we get a couple of lattices we could always bounce back.
“So, for our bowlers it was clear– be patient and when the occasion comes you just take them with both hands. ” Know More Latest IPL News…
