This was game between one of the most consistent teams - Chennai Super Kings - and one of the most promising teams of this IPL - Kings XI Punjab. KXIP was probably the smartest buyer in the February player auction but they were up against the super stars of the IPL. There was Chennai v Punjab in both the theaters and the IPL. In the first, Aliya Bhatt outperformed the Punjabis while in other Glenn Maxwell outclassed CSK. This game had many duels within duels. Between the fiery Mitchell Johnson and explosive Brendon McCullum, between Glenn Maxwell and R Ashwin, between Virender Sehwag and Ashish Nehra. McCullum not only won his duel but also did it with brute force. He reminded everyone of the first IPL match where he smashed a brilliant century. Sehwag showed glimpses of his old brilliance and exhibited a few classic strokes but Nehra won the duel in the end.
