Chennai Super Kings batted quite superbly in their first game against Delhi Capitals. They even posted a competitive total of 188/7 in their allotted quota of 20 overs.
But, they failed to defend the total as they let Delhi Capitals take control of the situation. Shikhar Dhawan top-scored with 85 while Prithvi Shaw scored 72. Delhi Capitals won their first game by 7 wickets.
On the other hand, Punjab Kings won their opening game against Rajasthan Royals. RR nearly pulled it off in the end but PBKS pulled off the ropes from the jaws of the defeat. PBKS won the game by 4 runs.
Now, Chennai Super Kings locked horns with Punjab Kings in their second game at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. CSK captain MS Dhoni won the toss and opted to bowl first.
After losing the first game, CSK players made a fantastic start to their second game. Punjab Kings struggled from the word go and they fell prey to CSK bowlers. Deepak Chahar made a complete mess of Mayank Agarwal’s stumps as the latter departed for a duck.
KL Rahul (5) was run out by Ravindra Jadeja in the 3rd over. Deepak Chahar bowled really well by getting rid of two dangerous batsmen Chris Gayle (10) and Deepak Hooda (10) in the 5th over.
MS Dhoni neglects Deepak Chahar’s suggestion
Deepak Chahar didn’t stop as he kept ripping through the defence of the Punjab Kings’ batting line-up. When PBKS were batting on 19/3, Chahar dismissed West Indies player Nicholas Pooran for a duck. After that, Shah Rukh Khan came out to bat.
Chahar delivered yet another superb delivery as the batsman missed it completely. The ball went on to hit the pads and Chahar was convinced that it was out and even made a full-hearted appeal. But when the umpire didn’t raise his finger, Chahar suggested MS Dhoni in taking a review but the skipper ignored it.

CSK and MSD!
