3 Big Takeaways for CSK going ahead into the playoffs
Chennai Super Kings registered a comprehensive win against Kings XI Punjab in their last league game of this season of the Indian Premier League. After suffering a defeat against Delhi Daredevils a few days back, this was the right opportunity for CSK to fix the issues they were facing before going ahead into the playoffs.
The bowling which has been a problem for CSK in the last few games seems to be sorted out as all the bowlers in the game put up a collective effort to bundle out KXIP for a below par score of 153 inside the 20 overs.
Let us look at 3 positives for CSK going ahead into the play-offs stages.
#3 Deepak Chahar’s batting
Deepak Chahar is the surprise package of this IPL and for Chennai Super Kings. The young Indian fast bowler has been a revelation with the new ball at the start of the innings. In the 9 games he played this season, Chahar has picked up 8 wickets at an impeccable average of 24. Importantly all his wickets were proper top order batsmen.
But the real surprise came in when he was promoted to bat at number 6 in the game against Kings XI Punjab. He was sent out to bat to score some quick runs and get a feel of batting. The youngster made full use of the opportunity by scoring a quick fire 39 off just 20 balls.
His knock included 3 sixes and 1 boundary. Going ahead into the playoffs, Deepak Chahar can be used as a pinch hitter and his cameos can propel the team score.
