A forgettable day for CSK on the field
While Deepak Chahar made his day the best off the field, CSK didn’t have a great time in the middle. The going was tough for them right from the word go with the bat. Ruturaj Gaikwad got out early while the other batters struggled for them as well. However, Faf du Plessis was the man for them who shone with the bat. He scored a brilliant 76 off just 55 deliveries to help CSK get to 134 runs in their 20 overs.
Many thought PBKS will also struggled with the bat and it was a competitive score. But KL Rahul had different plans as he tore apart the CSK bowling. While Punjab lost three wickets in the chase, Rahul was playing on an altogether different surface it seemed as he smashed seven fours and eight sixes. He looked extremely fluent and remained unbeaten on 98 runs with PBKS chasing down the score easily with seven overs to spare.
Nevertheless, Deepak Chahar stole all the limelight by getting engaged to his girlfriend to leave the fans stunned.
