How Did CSK Stop KKR's Winning Streak? Varun Chakravarthy Told The Reason For Defeat

CSK vs KKR: KKR, which was winning consecutive matches in IPL 2024, was finally made to taste defeat for the first time by CSK. CSK won by 7 wickets in Chepauk.

Kolkata Knight Riders suffered their first defeat in IPL 2024. Chennai Super Kings, which had been a lethal team till now, easily defeated them by a margin of 7 wickets. After the match, Varun Chakravarthy explained the reason for the defeat.

In the match held at Chepauk Stadium, CSK chased KKR’s target of 138 runs with 7 wickets and 2 overs remaining. After the match, Varun Chakravarthy admitted that the team was surprised to see the wicket. They expected to get a flat wicket here. The entire team was seen struggling to score runs at the MA Chidambaram Stadium.

Varun said, “I think we could have assessed the pitch better. The pitch was very slow, especially in the first half. It was very difficult to connect the shots but I felt a score of 160 would have been par. When I saw the wicket I thought it was a flat wicket but its behavior was very different. Like I said, defending 160 on this wicket would be a great score.”

CSK vs KKR: Dew also troubled me

Varun Chakravarthy also termed dew as a big factor and said, “Yes, there was a lot of dew during the innings. Certainly the last over that I was bowling to Dube made a lot of difference. The seam was very wet and I could not grip the ball much. Nothing extraordinary. We had a plan for every batsman. Everyone has plans but it becomes important to execute them.”
