As soon as the top order of CSK collapsed within the three overs of the first innings, social media using CSK fans got extremely dejected and fuming. At the end of 3rd over, Team CSK’s scoreboard looked 5-4. Uncapped players Jagadeesan and Gaikwad who came in to replace big names such as Watson and Jadhav got out for duck. Ambati Rayudu became a prey for Jaspirit Bumrah’s bouncer and in form player Faf du plessis nicked off the delivery bowled by Boult.
Producer Dhayanithi Alagiri came up with a tweet writing “படித்தவுடன் கிழித்துவிடவும்! CSK top order!” to express his emotion towards the top order collapse.
