Ajay Tiwari ChennaiApril 26, 2019UPDATED: April 26, 2019 19:50 IST IPL 2019: Hardik Pandya looks like a man on a mission this season (Courtesy BCCI)HIGHLIGHTSEarlier in the 2019 IPL, Mumbai Indians snapped Chennai Super Kings’ 3-match winning streakDhoni has led CSK to 3 IPL titles – a feat only matched by his counterpart in the MI campMalinga will be up against one of CSK’s batting mainstays over the years in Suresh RainaCrowd favourites and 3-time champions Chennai Super Kings (CSK) are set to host Mumbai Indians, their most formidable opponents at the Chepauk tonight at Chepauk. The clash, which has already attained the status of ‘El Clasico’ of the IPL, more often than not throws up a number of interesting battles between the superstars present on both sides.Earlier in the 2019 IPL, Mumbai Indians snapped Chennai Super Kings’ 3-match winning streak. Here’s a look at the key battles to look out for as CSK host MI in Round 2 of what could be an exciting clash:1. Chahar vs ChaharDouble first cousins Deepak and Rahul Chahar have come a long way from playing cricket together in the bylanes of Agra to the most prestigious T20 tournament in the world right now. But tonight in Chennai one should rest assured that as any sibling rivalry goes, Deepak and Rahul will be trying to outdo each other by any means possible to help their teams’ case.While Deepak has been a revelation in IPL 2019 with 14 wickets at an excellent economy rate of 6.95 his younger cousin is not far behind with 9 wickets from just 7 matches at a miserly economy of 6.61. Both are currently the second-highest wicket-takers for their respective teams and would want to reclaim the top spot tonight. Sadly, only one would end up on the winning side.2. Slinga vs Run MachineLasith Malinga might not be the enforcer he was in his heyday but the Sri Lankan toe-crusher is already an IPL legend. He has taken the most wickets in the history of the Indian Premier League (162). This season he has picked up 8 wickets in 6 matches at a strike-rate of 16.62 but he has been expensive as the economy rate of 9.02 suggests.advertisementMalinga will be up against one of CSK’s batting mainstays over the years in Suresh Raina, who has been in a tussle with Virat Kohli for the leading run-scorer in the IPL. Raina has been a prolific run-scorer for CSK over the years with a total of 5230 runs at a healthy strike-rate of 137.59. However, like Malinga, Raina too has found the going a bit tough this year with 245 runs in 11 matches at an average of 24.50 and a strike-rate of 121.89.Both these stalwarts would be looking for redemption no matter the larger battles at stake and whoever comes out trumps could not just decide the fate of the match but also their team’s fortune in the IPL 2019.3. Who will be the ‘Champion’ of all-rounders?At more than 35 years of age, Dwayne Bravo is in the twilight of his cricket career. But the ‘Champion’ all-rounder takes a lot of pride in wearing the Yellow jersey as has been evident by his 9 wickets from 6 matches at an excellent strike-rate of 13.44.He will be up against Indian all-rounder Hardik Pandya, who despite having a difficult time in the recent past, has shown glimpses of his raw talent in IPL 2019. Pandya is the third-highest scorer for his team this season with 241 runs at an average of 40.16 and an excellent strike-rate of 189.76. Adding the 8 wickets he has taken for MI to this tally, it looks like Pandya is finally owning up the role everyone has been expecting him to since his debut.Though Pandya edges ahead of Bravo in batting terms, the West Indian has the knack of surprising many at regular intervals – just like he does with his slower balls.Note: MS Dhoni and Ravindra Jadeja’s absence will be a big blow for CSK on Friday as they look to seal their spot in the playoffsAlso Read | The MS Dhoni connection with the Parags: From Ranji Trophy 1999 to IPL 2019Also Read | Rohit Sharma says CSK vs MI is El Clasico of IPL.

These deadly proteins then poison the nervous system and cause loss of motor control, memory, and speech.While there are therapies that exist to help Huntington’s patient cope with the degenerative symptoms, patients typically die about 10 years after diagnosis.RELATED: Scientists Activate Stem Cells to Make Hair GrowIn a new study released by the University College London, however, 46 patients with Huntington’s Disease were enrolled in the first human trial for an experimental drug called IONIS-HTTRx.The drug, which was administered through the patients’ spinal fluid, was not only shown to be safe and well-tolerated, but it also successfully lowered the level of harmful huntingtin protein in the brain’s nervous system.Professor Tabrizi, Director of the UCL Huntington’s Disease Centre said: “The results of this trial are of ground-breaking importance for Huntington’s disease patients and families. For the first time, a drug has lowered the level of the toxic disease-causing protein in the nervous system, and the drug was safe and well-tolerated.MORE: Two Breakthrough Drugs to Treat Migraines May Soon Hit the Market“The key now is to move quickly to a larger trial to test whether the drug slows disease progression,” she added.Moving forward, the research team will conduct further testing on how drastically the drug can alter the progression of the disease.
