IPL 2019: It was heartwarming to see senior pros in the Chennai camp guiding the next generation. MS Dhoni and Suresh Raina were spotted having a long, hard discussion with Deepak Chahar, who got rid of David Miller of the very next ball at MA Chidambaram stadium as Chennai beat Punjab by 22 runs. It was a pacy delivery right up there in the blockhole, Miller missed the line and that meant the timber was disturbed and he had to depart for six off five balls. It happened in the 19th over of the match and it was the final nail in the coffin for the traveling Punjab team.
Here is the video:
Chahar conceded 40 runs in his four overs but he got the big wicket of David Miller.
Earlier, opener K.L. Rahul (55 off 47) and Sarfaraz Khan’s (67 off 59) laborious efforts went in vain as Chennai Super Kings held their nerves to beat Kings XI Punjab by 22 runs in their Indian Premier League (IPL) clash at the M.A. Chidambaram Stadium here on Saturday.
Chasing a modest 161-run target, the visitors received couple of early jolts before Rahul and Sarfaraz anchored the Punjab innings with a crucial 110-run stand for the second wicket. However, it was not enough to help them cross the line as Chennai registered their fourth win from five matches.
Brief Scores: CSK 160/3 in 20 overs (Faf du Plessis 54, M.S. Dhoni 37*; R. Ashwin 3/23) beat Kings XI Punjab 138/5 in 20 overs (Sarfaraz Khan 67, K.L. Rahul 55; Harbhajan Singh 2/17, Scott Kuggeleijn 2/37) by 22 runs.
