cow-analysis

CSK took on RCB in the Semifinal with both teams having equal COW. CSK got off to slow start before rains interrupted. By the time match was resumed it was reduced to 17 overs. CSK lost a wicket straight away but RCB lost a lot more as Steyn got injured taking the catch. CSK exploited this by manhandling the 5th bowler. Raina and Vijay took them to 97/1 in 11 with COW of 49% before Vijay got out. But Raina continued his big hitting and smote 6 sixes in his 94 run inning as CSK scored 174 runs in 17 overs to end with a COW of 58%. RCB kept losing wickets at regular interval and seemed to be out of contest as they reached 57/4 in 10 with COW of just 14%. A fighting 50 from Manish Pandey and few blows from P Kumar were never going to be enough as they were bowled out for 123 in 16.2 overs as CSK reached their first CLT20 final.
