David Warner dropped Narine in Anrich Nortje’s first over, although the pacer removed Philip Salt before the end of the powerplay. Sunil Narine hit the DC bowlers all round the park as the KKR batsman hit a career-best score of 85 off 39 balls. Raghuvanshi slammed 54 off 27 while Andre Russell (41 off 19) and Rinku Singh (26 off 8) applied the final touches against a hapless DC bowling attack.

It took a pin point yorker from Ishant Sharma to stop Russel mania from running wild in the final over as Kolkata posted 272/7 in 20 overs. Mitchell Starc ended his wicketless run in IPL 2024 and opened his account against Delhi Capitals by taking 2 important wickets.

Despite Delhi Capitals captain Rishabh Pant and Tristian Stubbs’s quickfire knocks, it was all too late, as the early collapse of the top order was something that the Delhi side just could not overcome, as they fell victim to Kolkata’s bowling attack of Vaibhav Arora and Varun Chakravarthy, who took 3 wickets each and led KKR to a dominant win by a whopping 106 runs. For the first time in IPL history, KKR has won all of their first 3 games in the league phase.

CSK official reveals MS Dhoni’s plan on retirement

CSK was eliminated from IPL 2024 after a defeat by Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) in their final league match on Saturday.

The former captain of Chennai Super Kings (CSK), MS Dhoni, hasn’t yet announced his retirement plan or whether he plans to continue his career in the IPL, but a CSK official has revealed a message Dhoni gave to the management.

CSK was eliminated from IPL 2024 after a defeat by Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) in their final league match on Saturday. Both teams had 14 points each, but due to a higher net-run rate, RCB led by Faf du Plessis qualified for the playoffs. CSK fans were sad not only about the defeat of their team but also about the fact that they might see MS Dhoni for the last time in the IPL. However, a CSK official has revealed that he hasn’t commented on his potential retirement.

The unnamed CSK official revealed that Dhoni has requested that the team management hold off on any decisions regarding his retirement for a few months. He said that Dhoni himself hasn’t reached a conclusion and might be considering another season.

The official also mentioned that Dhoni felt comfortable with his running between the wickets during the IPL, a key concern for some fans regarding his age. Additionally, the introduction of the impact player rule in IPL 2024 might influence Dhoni’s decision. This rule allows teams to bring in a substitute player during the second strategic break, potentially offering Dhoni a more specific role within the team that is less physically demanding.

With Dhoni maintaining his silence and the possibility of the ‘Impact Player’ rule working in his favour, CSK fans might not have seen the last of their beloved captain just yet. The official said that the management would wait for Dhoni’s message on the topic and added that MS Dhoni has always had the best interests of the team in mind.
