Kings XI Punjab Grab Consolation Win Against Chennai Super Kings
CSK, despite losing their last league match against KXIP, have qualified for the IPL 2019 Qualifier 1. KXIP finish at 6th spot.
Sam Curran (3/35) gave KXIP a great start, bowling out Shane Watson cheaply. He later came back into the attack to take the important wickets of Suresh Raina and Faf du Plessis as well. (All images courtesy AFP)
Faf du Plessis was severe on KXIP bowlers, more so after reaching his fifty. Just when it looked like he would bring up his century, he was bowled on 96 by Curran.
CSK looked in trouble of dropping below Delhi Capitals on Net Run Rate because of the way KL Rahul started the KXIP innings. He brought up his fifty in the fourth over.
With not much on the line for both teams, there was some fun on display as well. Deepak Chahar jokingly caught hold of Chris Gayle's feet, not letting him get back into his crease.
In yet another moment of camaraderie, Nicholas Pooran was seen helping Dwayne Bravo back onto his feet after crashing into him while running to the non-striker's end.
