CSK VS KXIP XI, IPL 2019, 18th Match: Faf Du Plessis, Harbhajan Singh Helped CSK To Win Over KXIP


There is no doubt on the acumen of MS Dhoni. Captain of the Chennai Super Kings has such a strategy to fight in which no one can escape. To slowly screws on Kings XI Punjab and to win another match at home before fielding three spinners Dhoni helped make a score of 160 on the difficult Chepok Pitch. Except for dual no-ball infractions in Deepak Chahal's pen-over, everything was going well.
There is a need for courage to set goals against Chris Gayle, KL Rahul, Mayank Agarwal, and David Miller. But Dhoni's decision was more motivated than the Chepauk pitch, which was two-way and was reminiscent of a turning point in which Royal Challengers Bangalore were dismissed for 70 in the tournament as an opening match of the season.
Harbhajan Singh, Imran Tahir, and Ravindra Jadeja bowled 12 overs, got 61 runs and two wickets. KXIP's R Ashwin and Murugan Ashwin threw eight disciplined overs and bowling spell prevented the score from Chennai. Du Plessis made 54 runs in 38 balls with most conditions when the Kings XI Punjab pacer was working with the new ball. Ask Mohammed Shami who was playing for 16 in his first over.
In the next, Andre Tye’s had a turn because he gave18 runs in the fifth over. With difficulty which coming up during the boundaries, Chennai Super Kings played cricket with the right calculation and took the risk in two stages --- Powerplay which scored 54 runs, and 44 runs in the last three overs.
Due to the dismissal of du Plessis and Suresh Raina, it proved that Ashwin threw the kill balls. By that time, scoring had been stopped till Dhoni did not fully blast till the end where Dhoni hit 32 runs in last two overs with Rayudu
Harbhajan took two wickets in three balls and made it clear that why Dhoni did not take the second run in the last ball of Chennai's innings.

KL Rahul and Sarfaraz Khan scored the fifties but they were precise in the context of the game. Neither the singles were struggling to win their team while advancing their innings. And even though Kings XI had taken wickets in his bowling innings, but Kings XI never follow CSK's score while batting.
