IPL 2019: It was a big moment in the match when Harbhajan Singh removed Chris Gayle, Mayank Agarwal in the first over in a 161 chase. The 38-year-old was given the responsibility to bowl with the new ball and he did his bit to perfection. Chennai skipper Dhoni’s wife Sakshi was in the stands at Chepauk and she was euphoric when Harbhajan picked up the wickets. The entire crowd at Chepauk understandably went berserk when it happened. By dismissing Gayle, Harbhajan joined Ashwin to become the most successful bowler against Gayle. Both have dismissed the big West Indian four times.
Here is the reaction of Sakshi who could not keep a lid over her emotions:
Here is Harbhajan Singh’s over-the-moon reaction after sending Gayle back.
Earlier, it looked like smooth sailing for Chennai Super Kings (CSK) with the score reading 98/1 in the 13th over. But Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) skipper Ravichandran Ashwin had other ideas as he picked up two wickets in the 14th over to put the brakes on CSK during their Indian Premier League match at the M.A. Chidambaram Stadium here on Sunday.
In the end, Mahendra Singh Dhoni (37* off 23 balls) and Ambati Rayudu (21* off 15 balls) finished with a flourish as CSK made 160/3 in 20 overs.
