The Chennai Super Kings (CSK) secured a seven-wicket win over the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in the IPL, at the M. A. Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai on Monday. JioCinema IPL experts Robin Uthappa, Eoin Morgan, and RP Singh discussed Jadeja’s player of the match performance of 3/18, Gaikwad’s 67*, and Daryl Mitchell’s role at number three, exclusively on ‘Match Centre Live’. Excerpts:

Robin Uthappa spoke on Daryl Mitchell’s performance: He was very proactive in his innings today. Before this innings, he took a little bit more time but today he adjusted the attack, and took the pressure off Gaikwad, especially in that over where he played the reverse sweep at the end. This is what you want from a player coming in at number three and playing the role that Ambati Rayudu did for CSK, playing aggressively, and maintaining the momentum of the game while building important partnerships for the team and he played that role well today. 

Eoin Morgan spoke on Gaikwad: This innings will build a huge amount of belief and confidence for him in his game. Playing an innings like this, early in the tournament will give him a lot of reassurance on his decision-making and pass on a message to the team. He is a classy player, we have seen that for a long time now and it is great to see him in such touch. He had a great game, right from the toss to captaincy decisions, getting the spinners on after the powerplay, he was exceptional today.  

RP Singh spoke on Ravindra Jadeja’s match-winning performance: He bowled extremely well, the seventh over was very important as there was a partnership that was built, sent the youngster back in the dressing room. The best part about Jadeja’s bowling is he bowls at a good length and the pace at which he bowled today was great. He left no doubt as to who the best performer of the match was, took a couple of catches, got three wickets, and gave an all-round performance.
