That’s a loss…a huge loss and we are sure that this difference could impact their NRR. Punjab Kings beat CSK by 54 runs and barring that stand between Shivam Dube and MSD, everything is a thing to forget if you are a CSK fan.
Edge and taken by the keeper. The umpire had ruled Dhoni not out, but they took it upstairs and the umpire was asked to overrule the decision. Dhoni is done for the day. CSK 122/9
Liam Livingstone was on hattrick, but Dhoni dispatches him for a maximum. And then he finds the boundary. Meanwhile CSK have lost another wicket in between. CSK 117/8(16.3)
WICKET! on the very next ball, takes a stunning catch to dismiss Dwayne Bravo who gone off the first ball. Livingstone ruling the roost at CCI, Brabourne. CSK 98/7
WICKET! That’s the end of Shivam Dube. It was off spin from Liam Livingstone and he mistimed it and the fielder who was expertly placed there takes the catch. It has been Livingstone day…first that sixty off the bat and now the dangerman accounted for.
Liam Livingstone gets his second over and he gives away five runs in first two balls. Meanwhile Dube getting to his fifty and Dhoni playing perfect foil to the youngster. CSK 96/5(14.3)
SIX! What a shot…when Dube hits them, it stays hit. Meanwhile Rabada losing his line as he gets slammed for another maximum. So 12 runs already and add to that a couple of no balls…15 runs in 5 balls. CSK 89/5(13.5)
This partnership is now 35 runs and a little rescue act is taking place. Although, MSD is yet to open up his shoulder, he has crawled to 8 off 16 and a single. Just three runs of this over. CSK 72/5(13)
The first four balls saw just four runs…The bowler Arshdeep Singh though he will get away with another good over, but no. Shivam Dube slamming him for a FOUR. CSK 69/5(12)
Dube keeps finding odd boundaries, that’s his strength. He plays the spinners really well, so he is going after the bowler and giving Dhoni to settle down so they can take it deep. Another over gone, CSK 61/5(11)
Final ball of Odean’s over and Dube hits it for a FOUR! Great shot and great attacking cricket being played in the middle. It seems Dhoni will stay as the second fiddle with Dube going after the bowlers. CSK 53/5(10)
Huge SIX! Shivam Dube picked that up beautifully and sent it over fine leg. CSK finally showing some intent and the fans chant “CSK, CSK.” They believe they can chase it down. CSK 49/5(9.4)
And it could have been Dhoni. Massive edge but there was no one to pick that catch. CSK are in deep crisis. The whole top order is blown away, they need a solid partnership. CSK 41/5(9)
WICKET! Ambati Rayudu gone. Which means CSK are five down and this means Dhoni will have lots of overs to bat and he gets away off the first ball. CSK 37/5(7.5)
PBKS going all out, bringing back Vaibhav Arora who has already accounted for a couple. Nonetheless, not that good in this over as he gives away nine runs. CSK 36/4(7)
WICKET! Another one bites the dust. This is getting bad to worse for CSK. They are FOUR DOWN. Meanwhile superb stuff from PBKS young guns. Skipper Jaddu dismissed for a DUCK. CSK 23/4(5.3)
WICKET! What a ball. Clean bowls Moeen Ali and the bowler you ask? It’s the rookie! Vaibhav Arora who bowls an inswinger which takes out Ali’s stumps. This means more trouble for Men in Yellow. CSK 22/3
Another great over from Rabada as he gives away just five runs. CSK need runs as they must counter-attack after being two down. CSK 21/2(4)
WICKET! Another one gone, in-fact both the openers are a goner! Vaibhav Verma gets his maiden wicket as he hurried Uthappa who mistimed it and the catch was taken. The young man is over the moon. CSK 10/2(2.1)
WICKET! In the air and this time Dhawan takes it. He must be relieved since he dropped the batter earlier. The bowler this time was Rabada who induced the edge which was taken by Dhawan. So, CSK are one down. CSK 10/1(2)
Hello and welcome to our live coverage of Chennai Super Kings vs Punjab Kings IPL 2022 match from Brabourne Stadium, Mumbai. After losing their first two games, Ravindra Jadeja’s Chennai are in desperate search of a win in the tournament and their next challenge is against Punjab Kings who will also look to put their campaign back on track. CSK have not lived up to the expectations of people so far and their title defence looked extremely weak in the first two contests. They are missing Deepak Chahar in the bowling department who has yet not received the fitness clearance.
On the other hand, Punjab Kings had a mixed start to the decision as in their opening clash, they chased down the target of 206 with quite an ease. While in the following contest against KKR, they were restricted to 137 in 18.2 overs and eventually lost to Shreyas Iyer’s side.
The toss is already playing a significant role in the outcome of the games. With the second innings dew in mind, teams are opting to chase and CSK will hope to be better prepared to bowl with the wet ball.
Dew will be a vital part in this edition. If you win the toss, you will look to bowl first. There was a lot of dew, the ball was not sticking to the hands, will have to practice with the wet ball, Jadeja said after the loss to LSG.
The CSK bowling attack is also feeling the absence of pacers Deepak Chahar and Adam Milne and death-over specialist Chris Jordan.
They were forced to bowl all-rounder Shivam Dube in the penultimate over against Lucknow, which cost them 25 runs and took the match away from them.
With Mayank Agarwal, Shikhar Dhawan, Bhanuka Rajapaksa at the top, Punjab can dominate the opposition attack with ease.
Odean Smith and Shahrukh Khan are also known to tonk the ball and will need to play the finisher’s role on a more consistent basis.
Punjab, who added Kagiso Rabada to their attack, came up short against Andre Russell. They would quickly need to regroup and forget the hammering and bowl in the right areas.
The role of the two spinners Rahul Chahar and Harpreet Brar becomes crucial and could be a factor in deciding the outcome of the game.
