KXIP won the toss earlier than before, and first decided to bat. Kings XI Punjab were led to 178/4 by an opening 61-run booth between KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal. Hey made three major changes in the front-off team: Karun Nair, K Gowtham, James Neesham, and Mandeep Singh, Harpreet Brar and Chris Jordan. But Watson and du Plessis have turned all their efforts worthless. This is very good for MS Dhoni that Watson comes in form because we know that du Plessis always make runs.
Chennai Super Kings Captain MS Dhoni :
Did the little stuff correctly. Believed in the process. Believed. Were today searching for the beginning. Experience is critical here. There’s no more violent here. In the nets, Watson looked fine. But it’s replicating what you want. It has just been a matter of time. For us, Faf is like an anchor layer. He can still mistake shots like a lap shot at the bowlers. They give a nice compliment. The kind of attention Fleming shouldn’t get. The positive thing between us is that we decide between us both. This isn’t as though we didn’t have selection debates. But between us, it remains. The bowlers thought they did an outstanding job. We thought that our strategy was what we bowled. I felt like Watto and Faf backed to play the shots they were known for. Momentum with the right kind of shots.
Kings XI Punjab Captain KL Rahul :
KL Rahul said in post match presentation that, for so many games on the trot it is painful to be on the losing side. We’re getting tough and better again. We do not have a rocket science, that is the execution. The wicket stopped a bit when we began batting and there was some grip when the spinners came in. We are in trouble if we do not collect wickets from the Watson and du Plessis grades. When you go to 10, it’s a little hard to strike in powerplay as a captain. Both of them are professionals.
