IPL 2021, CSK vs PBKS Highlights: KL Rahul’s scintillating 98 steered Punjab Kings to a 6 wicket victory against Chennai Kings on Thursday. Du Plessis’ 76 in the first innings was completely overshadowed as Rahul took just 42 balls to reach 98 in an innings scattered with 7 fours and 8 humongous sixes.
Earlier, Chennai Super Kings suffered a top order collapse, like they had in their last match against Delhi Capitals before a Du Plessis acceleration took them to 134/6.
Faf du Plessis (76) played through the entire innings, even as wickets kept falling at the other end. Punjab’s pacers Mohammed Shami, Arshdeep Singh and Chris Jordan kept pushing CSK on the back foot, not letting the run rate cross 6 for most of the innings, till Du Plessis accelerated in the death overs.
