A good clinical execution by PBKS.
PBKS bowlers bowled well, fielding and catching was excellent and batsman scored the runs. A win finally.
PBKS will now play their next match in Ahmedabad. Let us hope PBKS take this momentum into the next match.
On the other hand, MI batsman still need to find their rhythm.
Bowlers tried their best, but there were not enough runs to defend.
This was MI's last match in Chennai. MI will now go to Delhi to play their next match. MI has time to rethink their plans.
thanks for reading my post
see you tomorrow.
PS - I will post the table points tally on sunday.
