Chahar’s 4-wicket haul helps CSK get first win of IPL 2021

Riding on a four-wicket haul by pace bowler Deepak Chahar, Chennai Super Kings defeated Punjab Kings by six wickets to claim their first win in this season’s Indian Premier League.

The right-arm pace bowler’s spell (4/13 in four overs) restricted PBKS to 106/8 in 20 overs, a poor score on a Wankhede Stadium pitch that is good for batting. CSK had it easy as they reached the target in 15.4 overs, losing just four wickets, three of which came towards the end of the innings against the run of play.

Brief scores: Punjab Kings 106/8 in 20 overs (Shahrukh Khan 47, D Chahar 4/13, D Bravo 1/10, S Curran 1/12, M Ali 1/17) lost to Chennai Super Kings 107/4 in 15.4 overs (M Ali 46, F du Plessis 36 not out, M Shami 2/21).
