Dale Steyn brought his A-game to the Indian Premier League during the clash between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Chennai Super Kings in Bengaluru on Sunday. Defending 162, Dale Steyn started off by getting rid of Shane Watson and Suresh Raina in the first over. Watching the proceedings from the dugout, RCB bowling coach Ashish Nehra reacted to Dale Steyn's inch-perfect yorker that bowlled Suresh Raina. Take a look:
Earlier on Sunday, Chennai Super Kings skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni urged his top-order to get their acts together and finish more matches going into the business-end of the Indian Premier League. However, Dhoni's superb 48-ball-84 went in vain as RCB beat CSK by one run to stay afloat in the league.
"I think it was a good game. We did really well to restrict them to a below par total, but we needed some good batting at the top. Once you know the opposition attack, you have got to stick to your plans and if you lose too many wickets upfront that puts pressure and the middle order really can't go after the bowlers from the start," Dhoni said at the end of the match.
Dhoni felt that the Chinnaswamy track was difficult one to bat on with its spongy bounce.
"It was still difficult at the end. It was slightly spongy (the pitch) and the new batsmen found it difficult. Boundaries were needed and yes we have lost by one run but at the same time we have to see what if there were few dot balls and whether we could have got those extra boundaries or not.
On the other hand, Virat Kohli was more than aware of Mahendra Singh Dhoni's penchant to go for the impossible and was admittedly "scared" with the former India captain's last over pyrotechnics during an IPL encounter between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Chennai Super Kings.
