The 18th match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) saw the light of the day between Chennai Super Kings and Kings XI Punjab. CSK walked with all their heart to finish things in their favour in the match. The spectacular opening stand by Shane Watson (83* off 53) and Faf du Plessis (87* off 53) gave CSK the best gift in these times and fetched victory by massive 10 wickets.
The two batsmen remained extraordinary on the pitch of Dubai and stitched a robust partnership of 181 runs. Out of the two greats, Shane Watson was named as the player of the match. Batting first, KXIP posted a good 178/4 on board where skipper KL Rahul did the perfect job from his end by scoring 63 off 52. However, he didn’t get too much support from any other batter this time.
It was CSK’s day all the way
Cameos by Nicholas Pooran, Mayank Agarwal, and Mandeep Singh remained essential to get their team going. Deepak Chahar remained impressive with the ball as he conceded mere 17 runs from three overs. Shardul Thakur picked two wickets. None of the bowlers from Kings’ side came up well with the ball as the duo of Watson, and Du Plessis smashed all of them ruthlessly.
