IPL 2021 Match 8 (Chennai Super Kings vs Punjab Kings)

Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s Chennai Super Kings (CSK) have got their first win in the 14th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL). Deepak Chahar’s swing, spinners’ whirl, and then Moeen Ali’s stormy innings with the bat, helped them to beat Punjab Kings by 6 wickets.

Losing the toss, the Punjab batsmen came down to bat first and fell in front of the canons of CSK’s bowlers. Deepak Chahar showed his magic with the new ball. He picked up 4 wickets conceding only 13 runs in 4 overs. Among others, Sam Curran, Moeen Ali, and Bravo got one wicket each. Punjab’s five batsmen could not reach the double-digit mark. Younger batsman Shahrukh Khan fought alone on the day. Punjab scored 106 runs for the loss of 8 wickets based on his 47-run innings.

CSK made a slow start to bat coming down to chase an easy target. Ruturaj Gaikwad scored only 5 runs playing 16 balls.
