CSK vs PBKS – Dhawan, bowlers help PBKS overcame Rayudu scare to beat CSK

Published on

In the second clash between the Kings in 38th match of IPL 2022, Shikhar Dhawan & bowlers helped Punjab Kings register another emphatic victory over Chennai Super Kings by 11 runs. Ambati Rayudu tried his best to take CSK over victory line but PBKS bowling in death overs was superb.

Chasing a target of 188 runs, despite Rayudu scoring 78 off 39 deliveries, CSK failed to chase down the target by 11 runs. CSK’s decision to sent Mitchell Santner as pinch hitter backfired as he consumed 15 balls in powerplay for just 9 runs.

CSK required 47 off last 4 overs but Arshdeep Singh & Kagiso Rabada bowled beautifully. First Arshdeep gave just 6 runs in 17th over Rabada followed the next over with 6 runs and Rayudu’s wicket. Which brought MS Dhoni at the crease who is coming from the vintage finisher act against Mumbai Indians.

Arshdeep once again bowled magnificently to gave only 8 runs in which Dhoni could hit only 1 boundary. Rishi Dhawan, who has to bowl the last over, has 26 runs to defend which eventually proved more than enough and brought Dhoni’s wicket.

Earlier, after winning the toss CSK skipper – Ravindra Jadeja invited PBKS to bat first despite the fact that last night’s match was won by team batting first. PBKS lost Mayank Agarwal in powerplay for 37/1.

Bhanuka Rajakapsa & Shikhar Dhawan kept going stronger with good partnership which brought 110 runs in 11.3 overs. Dhawan reached his personal milestone of 6000 runs in IPL. He became the second player after Virat Kohli to reach the milestone.

Shikhar Dhawan reached his half-century in 37 balls as he went on to score an unbeaten 88 runs in 59 deliveries. Rajapaksa scored 42 runs off 32 balls & Livingstone provided the death over fireworks with 19 runs off 7 balls.

Shikhar Dhawan was declared as Player of the match. With the victory PBKS moved to 6th place in IPL Points table with 8 points from 8 matches while CSK are at 9th place with 4 points from 8 matches.
