Ruturaj Gaikwad, bowlers knock KXIP out of IPL 2020

  • CSK defeated KXIP by 9 wickets to end their IPL 2020 journey.

  • Ruturaj Gaikwad scored his third fifty of the ongoing season.

Chennai Super Kings (CSK); the party poppers of Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 have dashed the hopes of the Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) by a 9-wicket victory in the 53rd match of the league stage.

Chasing 154, the MS Dhoni and Co. had a tremendous start as openers Faf du Plessis, and Ruturaj Gaikwad held their nerves and displayed a dominating performance. The duo added 82 runs before Chris Jordan provided the breakthrough by dismissing Du Plessis on 48.

Ruturaj, however, continued scoring runs and soon reached his third half-century of the ongoing thirteenth season. Gaikwad remained unbeaten on 62 off 49 balls to take his side over the finishing line. Ambati Rayudu also chipped in with crucial 30 not out.

Deepak Hooda guide KXIP to 153/6

Earlier, Kings openers KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal failed to convert their good starts into a big score. While Rahul was dismissed at 29, his batting partner Mayank was sent back to the dugout on 26. Both became the victims of CSK pacer Lungi Ngidi.

Soon, Shardul Thakur dismissed Nicholas Pooran (2), and Imran Tahir picked up the vital wicket of power-hitter Chris Gayle (12). As if the trouble wasn’t enough, Ravindra Jadeja cleaned up Mandeep Singh (14).

However, KXIP all-rounder Deepak Hooda came for the rescue as he took CSK bowlers to the cleaners and initiated a counter-attack. The right-handed batsman scored 62 off 30 balls studded with 3 fours and 4 sixes to guide his team to 153/6.
