Chennai Vs Kolkata India T20 League 2022

Match Preview: Chennai Vs. Kolkata India T20 League 2022, Match 1

The thrilling opening with the two of the best teams, Chennai Super Kings and Kolkata Knight Riders, has been overtaken with the other news of MS Dhoni quitting the throne of captaincy for the Chennai team. MS Dhoni is a legendary player and has been the captain of the team for 12 seasons in IPL, which is epic! No doubt, he is one of the best captains and has given us the best performances that the audience can have. Making the best strategies and tactics is one more specialty of our favorite player! 

But coming back to the first match of the IPL t20 league, Chennai won the match as expected. No doubt, the team arrives in the number one position among the best teams in the Indian Premier League. The team made their victory with 27 runs. But, the strange thing is that both the teams are very unusual to the audience because the squad has taken a heavy transformation in the mega auction of 2022. 

The fantasy cricket fans would know it well. They have to play without Pat Cummins as well as A. Finch because both are on their national duty with Australia for their 4 games of the season. And if we have a look at the Chennai team, there is the absence of M. Ali because of his visa issues, and there is some serious injury with D. Chahar. 

Chennai has dominated the seasons of IPL and achieved the maximum number of trophies in the IPL. This is also a fresh start where the fans would see how the team is doing without MS Dhoni.
