In the first match, Dhoni, Rahane, Umesh Yadav were seen in superb form; Umesh took important wickets by bowling in T20 after 2 years

IPL 2022 has started. In the match between CSK and KKR, Kolkata defeated Chennai by 6 wickets. This match has proved to be special for senior players. From Chennai, Dhoni hit a superb fifty. Ajinkya Rahane, who was dropped from the Test team due to his poor form, opened the innings from Kolkata, batting aggressively and scoring 44 off 34 balls, while Umesh Yadav bowled in the T20s two years later to take important CSK wickets.

Dhoni scored fifty to lead the team to a respectable score

CSK’s opening batsmen failed to score well. Conway and Rituraj Gaekwad couldn’t make a good run after that. Uthappa and Rayudu handled the innings but they too could not do anything. The score was 61-5 and Dhoni came to play. Jadeja and Dhoni took the innings and the last three overs saw a vintage Dhoni show. Dhoni aggressively hit fifty off 38 balls to lead the team to a respectable score but CSK could not win the match.

Rahane, who was barely sold at auction, responded to critics

Apart from Kolkata, no other franchise was interested in buying Ajinkya Rahane in the IPL mega auction held in February. It was originally priced at Rs 1 crore and was auctioned at the same price. Rahane had the opportunity to open due to Finch’s absence and he took full advantage of this opportunity.

It’s different that he missed half a century. But playing a 44-run innings stopped the critics from speaking. Especially the selectors, who ruled Rahane out of the Test team due to poor form.

Umesh Yadav’s remarkable comeback in T20

Fast bowler Umesh Yadav received the Player of the Match award. He gave up only 20 runs in 4 overs and took 2 important wickets. This performance was also important because he did not get a chance to play in a single match in the last season of the T20 league. Umesh was part of the Delhi Capitals that season.

Umesh Yadav last played a T20 match for Team India 3 years ago in February 2019. However, he was constantly attached to the Test team. Umesh, 34, struggled early in his career. He was also not selected for the college team, as he had never played a club match before. He then joined the Vidarbha Gymkhana club and from here came a major turning point in his cricket career. It may be mentioned that Umesh Yadav has received the Player of the Match award for the 9th time in the IPL. This is paramount as a fast bowler.
