Chennai Super Kings defeated Punjab Kings in the reverse match in Dharamsala to stay alive in the play-offs. Ravindra Jadeja’s 43 and a three-fer coupled with Tushar Deshpande’s early scalps helped CSK defend a total of 167 runs and then register a win

Short scores: CSK: 167/9 (Jadeja: 43, Gaikwad: 32, Chahar: 4-0-23-3) defeated PBKS: 139/9 (Prabhsimran: 30, Shashank: 27; Jadeja: 4-0-20- 3) with 28 runs.

Chennai Super Kings captain Ruturaj Gaikwad was unlucky for the tenth time during the toss in the ongoing edition and had to bat first. Ajinkya Rahane failed to get going after a glorious straight drive and Daryl Mitchell joined hands with Ruturaj Gaikwad to create a 57-run second-wicket stand. After the 60-run powerplay, the introduction of Rahul Chahar and Harshal Patel rewarded PBS with wickets as well as Shivam Dube, reducing CSK to 76/4 in nine overs. The spin all-rounder trio of Moeen Ali, Ravindra Jadeja and Mitchell Santner added 41 runs in the next six overs for losing the former with the CSK at 117/5. However, Jadeja continued to drag the game deep despite taking a couple of wickets from Harshal Patel, including an MS Dhoni golden duck. The all-rounder’s 43, including some solid knocks to the flicker, eventually took CSK to 167/9 in 20 overs.

In response, the Punjab Kings got some early jitters after a three-run first over from Mitchell Santner as Tushar Deshpande cleaned up Jonny Bairstow and Rilee Rossouw in the second over. Although Prabhsimran Singh and Shashank played through the powerplay phase and scored 47 runs within the field restrictions, Santner completed his solid knock in the eighth over. Prabhsimran (30) and Jitesh Sharma followed suit in back-to-back overs, followed by Ravindra Jadeja outsmarting Sam Curran and Ashutosh Sharma in the 13th over, reducing them to 79/7 in 13 overs. A late charge from Harshal Patel, Harpreet Brar and Rahul Chahar took them to 105/8 in 16 overs before Chahar was cleaned up by Shardul in the 18th over. However, the comparison was too much for the tail and Kagiso Rabada and Brar played on despite losing by 28 points.
