The cricketing trends on the social media revolved around a number of events that included the 12th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL). The first of today’s doubleheader was played between the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) at the iconic Eden Gardens in Kolkata. The match turned out to be an exciting one and went right down to the last over, bowled by leg-spinner Piyush Chawla.
The visitors, captained by MS Dhoni, won by five wickets. Chris Lynn was the Knight Riders’ top run-scorer, but he didn’t get much support from the other partners. Sunil Narine tried to pull things back for KKR and in the end, Chennai prevailed. With the defeat, Kolkata lost three matches in a row and need to somehow arrest their slump. The cricketing world commented on the clash in the City of Joy.
Hemang Badani was happy to see Suresh Raina coming back to form and he reckons that belief has been a massive element in the CSK setup. Bengal cricketer Manoj Tiwary felt that the Knights were 15-25 runs short and felt that the home team’s decision making wasn’t great and that cost them the game.
Meanwhile, Umar Gul celebrated his 35th birthday and his Pakistan teammates Umar Akmal and Wahab Riaz wished him on the auspicious occasion.

Yet again another year and @ChennaiIPL are steadily marching into the playoffs with ease. The belief that this team has in their players is unmatched. Great stuff yet again. Good to see @ImRaina chip in. #KKRvCSK

This was a game of one over. CSK won when Tahir got both Lynn & Russell in one over.#CSKvKKR
