CSK lose for the first time in a chase to KKR in the IPL

Here are a few noteworthy milestones from the game between Kolkata Knight Riders and Chennai Super Kings



Chennai choked to lose by 10 runs to KKR when at one stage they were comfortably placed to win. Here is a look at the statistical highlights from the 21st match of IPL 2020: 

Dwayne Bravo becomes the fifth bowler in IPL to 150 wickets

The bowler who has over 500 wickets in T20s, reached another milestone in the IPL. Dwayne Bravo, earlier in the Caribbean Premier League 2020, reached the crest of bowlers when he bagged 500 wickets. Today, with the wicket of Shivam Mavi, Bravo recorded his 150th IPL wicket. He became the fifth bowler overall and only the second overseas bowler to pick up 150 wickets in IPL. Lasith Malinga with 170 wickets, tops the list among IPL wicket-takers.  

A birthday special for Bravo

On his birthday, to be said, Bravo got a fruitful gift when he breached the 150 wicket mark in IPL. Bravo returned with figures of 3/37 against Kolkata Knight Riders. A much needed spell as he was under the pump. In Bravo’s last 9 innings prior to today, he just had two wickets at an economy of 7.5. The three wicket spell came as a relief and couldn’t have made his birthday better. Bravo’s 3/37 is the third-best spell by a bowler on his birthday in IPL. James Faulkner’s spell of 3/11 against Kolkata in 2014 in Abu Dhabi, is the best for a bowler on his birthday.

Dinesh Karthik and MS Dhoni on equal terms

Both, Dinesh Karthik and MS Dhoni are are neck and neck in the IPL. Dhoni might have the most dismissals as a wicket-keeper in IPL, but Karthik is closely behind him in terms of catches taken. In fact, he is equal with Dhoni at 104 catches as a wicket-keeper. Overall in IPL, Karthik has taken 112 catches as a fielder and wicket-keeper combined, which is the most. Dhoni has 108 catches to his name. With both of them currently playing, who wins the race to end up with most catches is to be seen.

Sunil Narine’s bunny in T20s

Sunil Narine has had the better of most batsmen in T20s, but he has taken a special liking for Shane Watson. It is a well known fact that Watson struggles against spin, and against the class of Narine, he has been clueless. Narine has bagged Watson nine times in the 16 innings face-off. Watson has managed to score at an average of 9.9 against him in T20s. The nine dismissals against Watson, is the most for Narine against a batsman in T20s.

A unique unwanted first for Chennai Super Kings

Chennai Super Kings have put on authoritative performances against Kolkata Knight Riders in IPL. Their 61.9 per cent win record against them is a proof of it. However, when it comes to a win in a chase, Chennai had been flawless before this match. Prior to today’s match, in the eight times Chennai had chased against Kolkata, they had never lost. But, this match marked their first ever loss against Kolkata in a chase. Chennai still have an 88.8 per cent win record against Kolkata in a chase. Among teams who have chased in five or more matches against a team in IPL, only Sunrisers Hyderabad, against the now defunct Gujarat Lions have a 100 per cent win record.
