CSK have made a comeback in IPL 13 in their own style after defeating Kings XI Punjab badly. However, Dhoni’s team full of experienced players still have a lot to do to stay in the tournament. Former India opener Virender Sehwag, who became a commentator, reacted to the Chennai Super Kings’ victory and said, “The thing that is trying to start on September 19, the ‘diesel engine’ Watson has finally started. “Faf came with duplecy and took the boys from Punjab to the stadium, he hit the ball all around the ground.” Sehwag told this through a video released on his Facebook handle.

Duplecy and Watson shared an unbeaten partnership of 181 runs for the first wicket and set several records in the IPL:
– The highest number of runs on any wicket for CSK in the IPL
– Highest run partnership for any wicket against Kings XI Punjab in IPL
– Fourth largest opening partnership in IPL history

Chennai Super Kings will next take on Dinesh Karthik’s Kolkata Knight Riders in Abu Dhabi on 7 October under captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni.
