पंजाब किंग्स ने चेन्नई सुपर किंग्स के खिलाफ 11 रन से जीत दर्ज की। मुंबई के वानखेड़े स्टेडियम में खेले गए मैच में पंजाब ने 187 रन के स्कोर को सफलतापूर्वक बचाव किया। पंजाब की यह चेन्नई के खिलाफ इस सीजन की दूसरी जीत और लगातार तीसरी जीत है।
Chennai Super Kings skipper Ravindra Jadeja on Monday blamed his inept batting line-up for their poor result this IPL season, saying the inability to score runs in the first six overs was hurting the team. CSK slumped to their sixth loss in eight games after going down by 11 runs to Punjab Kings in an IPL thriller here. Chasing 188, CSK had a woeful start as they slipped to 40 for 3 in seven overs.
“The wicket was stopping a bit, I tried to go for the big shots, but I couldn’t connect. But I kept my calm. Once I get set, I can get those boundaries, that’s what I bank on,” he said. “While batting first it’s about putting pressure on the bowers and getting boundaries. We don’t have to lose too many wickets, that was our conscious effort.”
