Washington Sundar is in for a chat. He says that he is very happy in the Powerplay and is pleased to do well against a team like Chennai. Adds that everything is working according to plan. Sundar mentions that it is hard to bowl in the Powerplay and hopes that he continues to perform well. States that Morris was brilliant and everything went well for them. Says that they did not plan a lot and is happy that they are on the winning side.
MS Dhoni, the Chennai skipper, says that the last 4 overs in their bowling was poor. Adds that the batting is a worry and it was evident in this game as well. States that they are better off playing the big shots and if they get out, it does not matter and they will look at doing that in the upcoming games. Goes onto say that their batting has lacked firepower in the middle overs and ultimately the batters need to have an idea about which shot to play and they have not come with a plan on how to attack till the 14th over. Adds that he has always told the players to focus on process rather than previous results. Says that there are many holes to plug. Says that overall, they have to look at their combination and there is always one positon to swap with a foreign bowler or an Indian bowler.
The bowling was excellent from Bangalore! Sundar was brilliant up front. So were the pacers who bowled in the Powerplay. Chahal was a touch expensive but due to the excellent performance from Morris and Sundar, him being expensive did not matter. Overall, it is an excellent performance from Bangalore which was led by their skipper.
A very convincing win in the end for Bangalore! To be honest after the carnage Kohli caused with the bat towards the end in their innings probably sealed the game for his side. 170 was always going to be a very tough chance. Chennai needed something special but no one produced anything. The openers fell cheaply. Jagadeesan and Narayan did play themselves in but got out when it was time to up the ante. Dhoni too could not do something out of the box. In the end, it ws a target which was way above par and Chennai fell well short.
