Rajeev Shukla’s 160+ Runs Theory Fails







Pin It



If you remember, on the grand opening of Indian Premier League’s 5th edition, the newly appointed  chairman Rajeev Shukla, who took over last year, said that all the curators have been asked to prepare tracks for high-scoring matches.

He exactly said,

We have told the curators that every match should at least have a 160-run total so that the spectators can enjoy the most.

But his this theory of 160+ runs looks to be failing from the very first match of the season.

Chennai Super Kings batting first at MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chepauk, Chennai, could only manage 112 runs in 20 overs which is way less than 160 runs.

We know, now people would say, he meant for good teams who can bat full 20 overs without loosing wickets and all sorts but Chennai is not less and they were playing pretty good when something ditched them, may be pitch, may be over-confidence or may be Shukla’s claim.
