IPL 2018: Match Analysis on CSK vs KXIP

 

Kings XI Punjab clinched their second win of the VIVO IPL 2018 after they defeated the Chennai Super Kings by 4 runs at the IS Bindra Stadium in Mohali. Batting first, KXIP rode on Chris Gayle’s half-century and contributions from several of their batsmen to post a challenging 197-7. Early wickets by the KXIP bowlers put the visitors under pressure very early in the run-chase. But MS Dhoni launched an unbelievable onslaught in the last three overs to bring his team back into the contest. Despite Dhoni’s blitz, CSK finished their 20 overs at 193-5 – five runs of what they needed. But it was MS Dhoni who stole the thunder, fighting through back pain to bludgeon 79 runs off 44 balls that took CSK close but fell 4 runs short of parrying them over the line. Both teams hit a few days of rest after today's match. KXIP host Sunrisers Hyderabad at home on Thursday (April 19) while CSK host Rajasthan Royals at their new home ground, Pune, on Friday (April 20).
