Among most of the team members in CSK, there was one who stood out to prove himself in yesterday's game. It was none other than Sam Curran, who scored 31 off 21 balls as an opener. 

Fans were surprised to see the young England all-rounder, who has been promoted up the order in the season. After being promoted, he did what was asked of him by opening the innings against SRH in Dubai.

After Faf du Plessis was dismissed for a first-ball, Curran went on striking three fours and two sixes in his breezy knock.

In total, Curran picked up 1/18 from his four overs. Impressed by Curran's game on the field, MS Dhoni spoke highly of him, even calling him a 'complete cricketer' for CSK. 

“A lot depended on the fast bowlers. I just told them to be expressive on the field and hit their areas. There are some two paced balls, some swing and some don't swing, some get extra bounce. What was needed was good execution of the plans and that was done by the fast bowlers, ”Dhoni said post match.

“We used an extra spinner because an Indian batter hasn't done well for us. That's why Sam Curran went up and it wasn't fair on Jagadeesan as well to bat at seven or eight. Sam Curran is a complete cricketer for us. You need a seaming all-rounder, he plays the spinners well and he can give us those 15-45 runs, "Dhoni added. 

Dhoni, who was happy to see his bowlers operate, combined to keep SRH to 147/8 in chase of 168 said; “Ultimately what really matters is you getting two points. What T20s have shown is that there are a few games that don't go your way and then there are some that go your way even when you haven't earned it. Today I felt we did a very good job even in the batting. There was some purpose with the bat and the batsmen assessed the situation very well, ”Dhoni said.

“With a total like 160, it all depends on the start you get in the first six overs. The fast bowlers did the job, the spinners came into play and it was one game that was as close to being perfect. It was a par score and I usually assess scores after the first six overs. If there are mis-fields in the first six overs then a par score becomes an under-par score, "the captain finally added.
