Punjab Kings skipper KL Rahul played a scintillating innings to take his side home against Chennai Super Kings and keep hopes alive of a potential place in the playoffs. Punjab chased down 135 required to win inside 13 overs. Rahul finished unbeaten on 98 as the side won in a canter. However, Punjab are sill dependent on the results of the remaining games having moved up to 12 points.

The Punjab Kings bowlers restricted CSK under 140 on a decent batting wicket. Faf Du Plessis scored 76 off 55 balls while the other CSK batters struggled. Slower balls and changes of pace did the trick for the Punjab bowlers.

KL Rahul Finished Unbeaten on 98

During their chase, KL Rahul’s unbeaten 98 ensured that they finish the run chase quickly with time in hand to boost their net run rate which is now. Rahul, at last, missed a century by just two runs in a run-chase of 135. He takes his run-tally to over 600 runs for the season.

CSK, on the other hand, lost three on the trot after becoming the first team to qualify for the knockouts. They ended the league stage on 18 points and second on the points table. The experienced CSK were completely outplayed by a young Punjab side led by Rahul. Punjab moved upto the fifth position on the points table after this win with the net run-rate still on the negative (-0.001).

“We had a few bad games 2 out of 3 and one we felt like we could have a comeback and that’s part and parcel d in leagues like these, you have to be at your best. Motivation is not a factor, the guys are highly motivated and maybe we need to tune up slightly as to what needs to be done and also a few tosses if they had gone our way. It would have looked worse winning toss and batting on that wicket and I felt the wicket changed a bit, it was a bit challenging but it was a good wicket” said MS Dhoni after his side’s loss to Punjab Kings.
