Chennai Super Kings have started off very well in their first IPL 2014 encounter, against Kings XI Punjab, amassing 59 for no loss in the first five overs.

 

Opening the batting for the Chennai Super Kings, Dwayne Smith and Brendon McCullum started off well against spinner, Akshar Patel, who opened the bowling for the Kings XI Punjab. They managed nine runs off the first over. Parvinder Awana started the attack alongside spinner Patel. And he too wasn’t spared by McCullum in his first over. He greeted the Indian pacer with a six and a four off consecutive deliveries. Awana then lost his line and conceded a couple of wides in the same over.

 

Mitchell Johnson then came into the attack in the third over. He too was treated with disdain by both the batsmen as Smith hit him for a four and six in his very first over. Awana continued and both batsmen have teared him apart so far.

 

McCullum has also brought up 5000 runs in Twenty20 cricket as well.
