Chennai Super Kings (CSK) won their first match last night against Punjab Kings in this IPL season but these three players of CSK helped win over PBKS
These three players should get credit for this win as it is due to these three players that Chennai Super Kings got a charismatic win over Punjab Kings.
Faf du Plessis –
In cricket it is said that until the last run is complete, no one is sure of victory. Faf du Plessis, who was dismissed for zero in the first match, played well this time and decided that even if the batsman is out on the front end, he will not throw a wicket and return to the dug out after winning the team. Du Plessis remained unbeaten on 36 off 33 balls with the help of 3 fours and one six.
The Chennai team’s first wicket fell quickly after chasing 107 runs. After this, Moeen Ali was once again sent up at bat and shared a 66-run partnership with Faf. In this partnership, he made attractive shots. Moeen, who scored 46 runs in 31 balls with the help of seven fours and a six, was caught by Shah Rukh Khan off Murugan Ashwin. But this partnership brought Chennai to the threshold of victory.
Not only this, in bowling too, Moeen did wonders in this match. He took 1 wicket for 17 runs in 3 overs.
The bowler who wrote the script of the victory of Chennai Super Kings should be named in this list. No one thought that the Punjab Kings, adorned with dangerous batsmen, would be able to score only 106 runs in 20 overs, thanks to the swing bowling of Deepak Chahar at the Wankhede Stadium.
Deepak Chahar delivered a big blow to Punjab in the first over and sold Mayank Agarwal. After this, a brilliant catch of Universal boss Chris Gayle was taken by Jadeja off Chahar. At this time, even Nicholas Pooran could not open his account. Chahar also disposed of Hooda playing explosive innings in the last match cheaply. All four wickets of Chahar were of the top order of the Punjab Kings, which broke the backbone of the Punjab Kings batting.
It was the best performance of his IPL career. Interestingly, in the 4-over spell, he did not give any runs in 18 balls and took 4 wickets for 13 runs. He was named the Man of the Match for this outstanding performance.
