Summary

  • Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) won the toss and elected to field against Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in match 33 of IPL 2018 at Eden Gardens here on Thursday.
  • The only thing that had a better strike rate than MS Dhoni was the speed at which shirts with his name on the back, all fake and all in Chennai Super Kings’ yellow, were selling.
  • When Dhoni stepped out at 6:48pm, even a fast-filling Eden Gardens shook.
  • The Eden has been a full house for most games but on Thursday, KKR could have sold tickets for thrice the size of this stadium and still demand would have exceeded supply.
  • KKR have a poorer head-to-head record against the winningest team of the IPL, having won 6 of the 17 games between them.
