PBKS won the toss and decided to bowl first. Mohammad Shami and Ravi Bishnoi impressive, picking two wickets each and restricted MI to a low score of 130 on a difficult Chennai surface. However, reaching the target wasn’t going to be a cakewalk.

KL Rahul began nicely with Mayank Aggarwal and then took it all the way home with Chris Gayle.

It was an important match for Gayle as well considering his low scores.

The stars of the game were undoubtedly Rahul (60* of 52) and Gayle (43* of 35), team coach Anil Kumble was definitely over the moon with his squad’s victory, here’s what he had to say.

Man of the match KL Rahul lauded his team for a united front and said that it is a young team, with a lot yet to achieve, patience and focus are the major areas where they need to work upon and this is just the beginning.

The winning momentum has been created. Every match henceforth would be of importance, with the race to be in the top 4 underway.
