In Qualifier 2 tie against Kings XI Punjab and Chennai Super Kings, veteran opener Virender Sehwag got the table-toppers to a cracking start with a flick through the leg side and a spank through the covers  which took the score to 10 of the first over. The second over was by the burly Madhya Pradesh pacer Ishwar Pandey and it was an excellent over against the two aggressive batsmen.

 

Just a single came of the the second over by Ishwar and that set the tone for Chennai pressurizing the opponents through some tight bowling. Even the usually expensive Mohit Sharma didn’t allow any easy runs. Mohit should also be credited for bowling to the field. The last ball of the third over was a bad one and Sehwag dispatched to the boundary ropes.

 

Earlier, Chennai Super Kings won the toss and predictably decided to field first. Chennai have retained the same team that cruised to a seven wicket win against Mumbai Indians in the eliminator. Kings XI Punjab on the other hand have brought in their strike bowler Sandeep Sharma, who replaces Rishi Dhawan.
