PUNJAB KINGS WON BY 4 WICKETS
CHENNAI SUPER KINGS
LOCATION – Arun Jaitley Stadium, Delhi
Not the outcome the Chepauk home supporters were hoping for. Both of CSK’s openers made the most of the fielding restrictions as they got off to a strong start. For the first wicket, the openers put together an 86-run partnership. At No. 3, Shivam Dube was able to land some hard blows as well. Conway’s 92 at a 177 strike rate ensured that CSK posts a massive total on the board. With the spinners in the CSK ranks, 201 was never going to be an easy target to chase. For the PBKS chase, Prabhsimran Singh and Shikhar Dhawan started out firing furiously.The team needed only 4.2 overs to achieve 50. Prabhsimran just needed 24 balls to hit 42. Liam Livingstone, who was ranked fourth, wasted no time. Jitesh Sharma and Sam Curran’s cameos gave the game depth. The visitor gained momentum after giving up 24 runs in the 16th over. Sikandar Raza maintained his composure and led the side to victory by making three runs on the final delivery. PBKS’ confidence going into the tournament will be undoubtedly boosted by defeating CSK in their own turf.
Player of the Game is Devon Conway.
The surface was a little bit slow when you struck the wicket, but overall, it was a fantastic wicket, according to Devon Conway. We considered 200 to be a very competitive mark. We were disappointed that we did not come out on top. It’s about not complicating things, sticking to my process, and keeping things simple.
