So IPL finally kicked off and we had a competitive match to watch. CSK looked on course to win for most of the match, except for a bit of a wobble in the second half of their chase. A calm Faf du Plessis batted through to get his team off to a winning start.
After what has seemed like an unending wait, the 2020 edition of the Indian Premier League will finally kick-off with the high-octane clash between defending champions Mumbai Indians and last year’s runners-up Chennai Super Kings. A lot has changed since the two teams met in the 2019 summit clash. Coronavirus first forced the event to be suspended before it was eventually moved out of India, to the UAE, due to safety concerns over COVID-19. The tournament will be devoid of the usual hustle-bustle of crowds. But, fans would be pleased that at least there would be witnessing their cricketing stars back in action.
