What Saurav Ganguly has said of MS Dhoni's no-ball controversy is surprising

Despite the points table reflecting Kolkata at the second spot, it's been a topsy-turvy ride for them.

Andre Russell, who was doubtful for the tie with an injury, also made the playing XI.

Though, Chennai Super Kings won the match by 4 wickets, MS Dhoni lost his reputation of being calm in every situation.

In the bowling department, Piyush Chawla and Sunil Narine are the spinners while Harry Gurney and Lockie Ferguson are the designated quicks. The role that he plays for the team is vital. He struggled with power hitting in his 21-ball 45 against Delhi. He was seen angrily gesturing at the umpire before leg umpire Chris Gaffaney asked Dhoni to leave the field of play.

On the bright side, Shubman Gill's talent was on display as he looked in fine touch, scoring a well paced half-century against Delhi. "We will take a call day after", skipper Dinesh Karthik said about the availability of Russell, who has been the man-of-the-match in three of their four wins.

Powerful, deadly storms sweep across the South
The Washington Post went on to report that an elderly man was killed "when a tree fell on his trailer in Hamilton, Mississippi ". The large storm system also caused flash floods in Louisiana, where two deaths were reported.

However, more drama followed when Stokes was adjudged to have delivered another no ball by Indian umpire Ulhas Gandhe only to be overruled by his Australian counterpart Bruce Oxenford at square leg.

Mahendra Singh Dhoni's uncharacteristic outburst against a controversial umpiring decision led to the Chennai Super Kings captain being fined 50 per cent of his match fee in Thursday night's Indian Premier League (IPL) match in Jaipur. "It was a clinical performance from the team against a strong team like KKR", Iyer said. He has scored 214 runs in five matches at an astounding average of 107. Suresh Raina, Dwayne Bravo and Ambati Rayudu form the middle order.

"It's all happened and it's been dealt with pretty much right after the game", former Australia batsman Hussey told reporters ahead of their return fixture against Kolkata Knight Riders at the Eden Gardens on Sunday.

All-rounders: Andre Russell marches into this side, he has already enamoured Eden Gardens a couple of times this season and will hold the key once again. As a whole, the CSK batting line-up, consisting of the likes of Faf du Plessis, Shane Watson and Suresh Raina have all clicked when needed.

The spin bowling department of the Knight Riders also should make it count when it matters the most.
