Chennai Super Kings Tops the Table by beating KXIP!
Chennai Super Kings beat Kings XI Punjab by 22 runs and climbs the top of the table. CSK suffered their first defeat at the hands of Mumbai Indians in their last match and bounce back on Saturday evening by defeating KXIP.
MS Dhoni again won at home with spin. Top spells from Harbhajan, Jadeja, and Tahir. Earlier, Faf du Plessis went onto accumulate more runs and ended up scoring a fine half-century. For the second wicket, he added 44 runs with Suresh Raina but both Faf du Plessis (54) and Raina (17) departed off consecutive balls in the 14th over bowled by Ashwin.
A century stand by KL Rahul and Sarfaraz Khan (117 runs for the third wicket) still was insufficient for Kings XI Punjab. Rahul and Sarfaraz batted well but should have attacked the spinners once they settled in.
Still, David Warner (SRH) remains at the top of the run-scorers charts taking the Orange cap and Yuzvendra Chahal (RCB) picked Purple cap as leading wicket-taker by taking 9 wickets in IPL 2019.
