CSK won their first match and beat Punjab kings by 6 wickets. The hero of the match, Deepak Chahar, had completely pushed the Punjab Kings on the backfoot with the start of the wickets. Like other teams, CSK won the toss and decided to bowl first.
KL Rahul and Mayank Aggarwal started the innings for Punjab Kings. But the start was nothing special and Mayank Aggarwal was out without scoring any runs. Then Chris Gayle came to the crease and missed his catch as soon as he arrived. But due to Jadeja’s tremendous throw, KL Rahul had to lose his wicket. Chris Gayle was also dismissed early and returned to the pavilion. Deepak was playing Hooda, but he too could not stand on the pitch too late and went out. Within just 25 runs, the Punjab Kings lost their 5 wickets.
But Shah Rukh Khan tried to handle the innings. Put on some short shorts and make the most of 47 runs. Other players could not do much. At one time it seemed that the Punjab Kings did not even cross the 100 mark. But somehow Punjab put a target of 108 runs in front of CSK. Deepak Chahar took 4 important wickets. Sam Kurran and Moone Ali and DJ Bravo took 1 -1 wickets.
CSK’s first wicket to chase a small target fell quickly but then the partnership of Faf du Plessis and MoeenAli took the Punjab Kings match too far and won the match in 15.4 overs. Shami took 2 wickets for Punjab Kings and Arshdeep Singh and Murgan Ashwin got 1 -1 wickets. With this win the run rate of CSK would have improved significantly which fell down in the first match. Deepak Chahar got the player of the match.
