IPL 2018: Viru impressed with Russell and Billings knock

IPL 2018: Viru impressed with Russell and Billings knock

The arrested party workers were charged for beating up policemen on duty who were deployed to curb the protest and ensure the match to be held between Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) was played without trouble. Despite losing Karthik along the way, Russell kept teeing off, smacking Shardul Thakur for two sixes in the final over to take Kolkata past 200, which eventually didn't prove enough.

"CSK can play their matches at these venues", Rai said, using the acronym for the Chennai Super Kings franchise. "Because of the volatile situation we have been apprised that it is better to reschedule the games", Viswanathan said.

"Bowlers from both the teams had a rough day, but overall it was a good day for the crowd over here".

D Bravo and R Jadeja also held their nerve to win the game.

"Frustrating not to defend 202, but well done to Andre", said Kolkata skipper Dinesh Karthik.

Chasing a mammoth target, CSK had no option but to tread on a hitting spree from the word go and this is what Chennai openers Shane Watson (42, SR: 221.05) and Ambati Rayudu (39, SR: 150) followed in letter and spirit.

The Russian Embassy in London said earlier Saturday Yakovenko had sent a "personal note" to Johnson asking for the meeting. And, in the last few days there has been even speculation that Viktoria Skripal is being manipulated by the Kremlin.

All six Indian Premier League (IPL) home matches of Chennai Super Kings (CSK) have been shifted out of the city and moved to Pune in view of massive protests by Cauvery activists. Sunil Narine (12), Chris Lynn (22), Robin Uthappa (29), Nitish Rana (16) and Rinku Singh (2) were dismissed. Vinay Kumar then somehow restricted the next four balls to singles - including one wide - to leave Bravo furious that his batting partner Ravindra Jadeja wasn't running hard to get the West Indian back on strike.

"We are thinking on the lines of shifting the IPL matches from Chennai", BCCI administrator Vinod Rai was quoted as saying by the Press Trust of India news agency.

Fresh off his blistering half-century against Royal Challengers Bangalore, Narine threatened to launch another assault. Cricket Australia says Cummins will be rested so that his condition doesn't worsen.

On Tuesday, MA Chidambaram or Chepauk Stadium hosted the first match of the eleventh season of the IPL.

"It is important that Pat has time off bowling, to prevent the injury becoming more serious and consequently we have made the decision to rule Pat out of the IPL".

"Pat experienced some back soreness during the fourth test in South Africa".

Cummins was signed for around $831,000 by Mumbai.
