IPL 2024: CSK Seamer Tushar Deshpande’s Twin-strike Rattles PBKS Batting Order

Chennai Super Kings seamer Tushar Deshpande struck twice in his first over of the match, disrupting the Punjab Kings’ batting order as the hosts chased down the 168-run target in Dharamshala on Sunday.

Deshpande came in to bowl the second over of the innings and managed to cast Jonny Bairstow in the third delivery and went on to uproot Rilee Rossouw’s stumps on the last ball of the over.

Chennai would bat first through PBKS skipper Sam Curran, who won the toss. The hosts struck early as Ajinkya Rahane was scalped by Arshdeep Singh in the second over as Kagiso Rabad caught the experienced opener.

Skipper Ruturaj Gaikwad and Daryl Mitchell were at 57 runs before the captain was dismissed by Rahul Chahar for 32 off 21 deliveries. The Punjab spinner got his second in the next delivery as he sent Shivam Dube back to the hut for a golden duck, his second in as many matches as he hit one off keeper Jitesh Sharma.

Mitchell fell to Harshal Patel soon after as he scored with a 19-ball-30-run contribution. Moeen Ali and Ravindra Jadeja formed a 26-run partnership before the Englishman was scalped by compatriot Curran. Mitchell Santner’s run-a-ball 11-run innings came to an end when Chahar completed his three-wicket haul in the 16th over.

Harshal Patel also completed his three-wicket haul with the dismissals of Shardul Thakur and MS Dhoni in consecutive deliveries.

Jadeja, who top-scored for CSK with his knock of 43 runs off just 23 deliveries, met his end through Arshdeep’s last over of the innings as Curran held on to the southpaw’s catching opportunity.
