MS needs his Kings back in form

MS Dhoni will be looking to make his mark in the IPL final.

After nearly two months of high-octane T20 cricket, the IPL is preparing for its final act with the title showdown between Chennai Super Kings and Sunrisers Hyderabad set to take place in Mumbai on Sunday.

Meanwhile, Jos Buttler believes he and Dom Bess have given England realistic hope of an unlikely victory after their game-changing century partnership in the first NatWest Test against Pakistan.

Joe Root’s hosts were booked for a miserable defeat inside three days, probably by an innings, when Buttler (66no) and debutant Bess (55no) joined forces still 69 runs in arrears on a second-innings 110 for six.

But they gave the Lord’s crowd, and home dressing-room, a much-needed lift with an unbroken stand which took England to 235 at stumps.

The lead is still only 56 heading into day four today.

Jos Buttler and Dom Bess saved England.
