Chennai Super Kings defeated Royal Challengers Bangalore by 7 wickets in the first match of the tournament
Bangalore's team lost to 70 runs in 17.1 overs, Chennai achieved the target in 17.4 overs
Chennai. Chennai Super Kings have defeated Royal Challengers Bangalore in the first match of IPL-12 on Saturday night, but the winner's captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni is unhappy with the pitch of Chepauk Stadium. Royal Challengers Bangalore captain Virat Kohli also expressed dissatisfaction with the pitch.
Dhoni said, "We were really surprised that the wicket was so slow. It reminded me of the 2011 Champions League match. The wicket must definitely be better, the ball was moving around after dew. '
Winning toss is not in your hands: Dhoni
Dhoni said, '80, 90, 100 is actually very low score. If spinners have good line-ups then you can create big problems for the opposition team. We also need to make runs. Our batting is strong. Winning the toss is not in your hand, it means that we have to do anything before bowling or batting. '
The goal of around 140 was expected
He said, "In fact, we were not very sure about the wicket. We played a practice match here but it is not the same wicket as it was in that match. I was hoping to score around 140 on this wicket. "He said," This wicket will have to be made better soon, otherwise it can be difficult for us too. The other teams also have good spinners. It's not such a pitch that you would like to see in future matches. "
We would have trouble for more goals: Raidu
Ambati Rayudu, who played 28 runs for Chennai Super Kings, said, "It was not easy to bat on this pitch. If we had 30-40 runs in the target, it would not be easy for us too. "
Was looking good in the wicket: Virat
Kohli said, 'It looked better to watch the wicket. We have a better score of 140-150 Initially, he was very upset, but any team here would have problems in batting.
