CSK Vs PBKS Pitch Report

Playing on a red soil surface today, it's a new pitch today. It has a lot of grass and it's very hard. Last season, the turn was more at this venue compared to this season. There will be a bit of pace and carry, it'll be a high scoring game. Dew will be a big factor and the toss will matter, but the ball might seam around in the second innings, reckon Matthew Hayden and Danny Morrison on air.

Punjab Kings win by 7 wickets!

Ruturaj Gaikwad | Losing Captain

"Probably 50-60 runs short, the pitch wasn't great when we batted, it got better later on. With the impact rule as well, we were well short... It's a real problem (on the player missing due to injuries and Chahal walking away in the first over), there are phases where you want wickets, but you have only two bowlers, the dew took the spinners out of the equation. It was tough, but there're four games left and we will try and come back to winning ways."

Sam Curran | Winning Captain

"Very happy. Everytime you come to Chennai and take two wins, always a special feeling. Same as last year, we lost a lot of our home games and won away, finding a similar pattern. We are in a position where we need to win all our games, we come up against the same opposition in a few days. Chahar came back and was the best bowler in the 260 game, and he's bowling with great confidence. He stepped up when I asked him to bowl against MSD in the 19th over. (On bowling Chahar in the 19th) The pace bowlers were going for a bit in the end, and I wanted to try something different. Asked Rilee what he reckoned and took that gamble with spin. In this game where everyone has been going for runs, you need to take such gambles. Sometimes they work, sometimes they don't."

Harpreet Brar Is Player Of The Match

Harpreet Brar | POTM

"It was a good wicket to bowl on, and even Rahul bowled really well. I have been playing since 6 years, so my confidence has been pretty high. Now bowling to these legends of the game feels normal, I just bowl to my strengths. To be honest, I don't think wickets, my aim is only to bowl lots of dot balls and dot balls create the wickets. When there is spin in the wicket, the bowlers confidence goes up and it is a bit helpful."

That's It From Our Side

So PBKS have earned their second win on the trot and it is the fifth consecutive time they have defeated CSK. A good performance from the Kings and they are now seventh in the table with 4 wins and 6 defeats. Super Kings meanwhile are five-five in 10 games.

That will be it from us. Thank you for following. Good Night!
