Many die-hard Indian cricket fans waited for the return of Chennai Super Kings’ franchise. Living up to their expectations, CSK made a comeback and produced there back to back thrilling games for their fans. MS Dhoni-led franchise is currently on third slot on the points table with two wins in three games.
After winning their first two games, CSK looked favourites against the Kings XI Punjab. But, the home side stunned the visitors by adding Chris Gayle to their XI, which daunted Chennai’s winning chances. Gayle went on to score 63(33) with 7 fours and four sixes. This performance earned him the man of the match award.
In the second innings, CSK looked almost out of the game till the 16th over, but MS Dhoni’s inspiring knock brought back some memories for his fans even though he failed to successfully finish the game for his side. MS Dhoni smashed a six off the final ball, but the Chennai side fell short by four runs.
For KXIP, alongside team owner Preity Zinta, it was Ravi Ashwin’s wife Prithi Ashwin, who was cheering for the franchise from the VIP box of the stadium. The duo looked tensed throughout the second innings as they know the threat that MS Dhoni possesses in the shortest format of the game.
After the game, Prithi Ashwin took to Twitter and termed the game as a nail-biting thriller, she wrote, ‘What a knock from MS. Catching the highlights in peace after all the nerves.’

Ashwin almost looked unpredictable throughout the game, he gave his star bowler Mujeeb Zadran only three overs, which was very unpredictable. MS Dhoni, after the game, admitted that it was Mujeeb who won the game for KXIP with his three-over spell. He conceded just 18 runs without picking a wicket.
