PBKS Innings

PBKS were in for a shocker as they lost 4 wickets in the space of 4 overs, and were put on the back foot straight away. The crucial wicket of KL Rahul came in the form of runout as Ravindra Jadeja’s direct hit sent him back to the pavilion. After that, the first 5 batsmen didn’t cross 10 runs as Deepak Chahar wreaked havoc, grabbing 4/ 13. The only batsman who fought hard was Shahrukh Khan with a 36 ball 47. CSK almost won the match in the first innings and only had to complete the formalities in the second innings. PBKS prayed for a miracle at the break, but that was highly unlikely on this good Wankhede pitch.
