‘Thalaiva’ fans were proud that CSK had won the match against Kings XI Punjab the other night. CSK lost three matches before winning against Punjab on Sunday.

The MS Dhoni-led team played all the matches with the same playing 11 in all four matches. 

Faf du Plessis and Shane Watson had put up a brilliant chase against Kings XI yesterday. That was the moment when we all felt that CSK can still do it. Going up against Kings XI Punjab is not an easy task as they have got a strong team. 

The playing XI for CSK for yesterday’s match was: MS Dhoni, Shane Watson, Faf du Plessis, Ambati Rayudu, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Kedar Jadhav, Ravindra Jadeja, Piyush Chawla, Dwayne Bravo, Deepak Chahar, Josh Hazlewood. 

Earlier the coach of CSK, Stephen Fleming also said that CSK’s batsmen need to have that spark in them and then CSK would grasp the match. Well, it all became true during yesterday’s match against Punjab. 

Kings XI Punjab had won the toss and decided to bat first. Punjab’s team managed to put a total of 178/4 in 20 overs.

The second innings showed the fans that CSK’s opening batsmen were enough to chase this total in just 17.4 overs with 14 balls still remaining. 

Faf du Plessis and Shane Watson played a brilliant inning scoring 87(56) and 83(53) each. Well, who knows this is just a glimpse of CSK’s batting performance as it is a lot hidden!
