Red hot cheers for Chennai Super Kings
Chennai Super Kings may have one of the most unique uniforms amongst all the Indian Premier League (IPL) teams, however, their cheerleaders look like they are very much a part of the Royal Challengers Bangalore outfit. The cheerleaders’ outfit have little that resembles CSK’s yellow. The attire has more red than yellow.

Mohit Sharma’s time-management exemplary
Chennai Super Kings pacer Mohit Sharma believes in time management. Yesterday, after CSK were asked to bowl by Mumbai Indians, Mohit took a paint bucket from a groundsman to mark his run-up at both ends before the match started. He first counted the number of steps he would require for his run-up and then removed the paint brush from the bucket to mark it, while the groundsman stood next to him. He then quickly rushed to the dressing room to get ready for the action. It’s a smart way to not waste any time during the match.
Sea of blue? Not quite
Yesterday’s match was supposed to be in MI’s den, but that wasn’t the scenario at the Wankhede. There were enough yellow-jersey fans in the stands as Mumbaikars had their loyalties split this time. In fact, one saw many families stand divided when it came to lend their support for MI or MS Dhoni’s yellow brigade. CSK t-shirts were also in good demand outside the stadium.
