Punjab Kings (PBKS) thrashed Chennai Tremendous Kings (CSK) by six wickets within the forty third match of IPL 2021 in Dubai on Thursday.
MS Dhoni’s CSK posted 134/6 on the scoreboard after being put in to bat first. Opening batsman Faf du Plessis top-scored for CSK with 76 off 55 balls whereas Arshdeep Singh (2/35) and Chris Jordan (2/20) shined with the ball for Punjab.
The Preity Zinta co-owned franchise chased down the goal comfortably with captain KL Rahul main from the entrance, smashing an unbeaten 98 off 42 balls with the assistance of seven fours and eight sixes.
It was CSK’s third consecutive loss within the ongoing season as they earlier confronted defeats towards Rajasthan Royals (RR) and Delhi Capitals (DC).
“It was actually sizzling right now. Plan was easy. The numbers guys pulled up just a few permutations and combos. They stated if we chase this earlier than 14 overs it provides us one of the best likelihood. So the plan was clear and I had the licence to go from ball 1,” stated Rahul within the post-match presentation.
“[It was] a kind of days when it comes off when you have got full readability. All the them hit the center of the bat,” he added.
Right here’s how Twitter reacted on PBKS’ thumping win over CSK:

#KLRahul is only a totally different beast when he breaks the shackles he imposes on himself. Hope he let’s himself free within the blues. Effectively performed right now. Completely good.
