IPL 2019 Chennai Super Kings vs Kings XI Punjab Latest Cricket Score Updates Match 18 – Hello and welcome to our live cricket blog of another exciting encounter of the lucrative (IPL) between Chennai Super Kings vs Kings XI Punjab. This is expected to be a cracker of a contest with both teams loaded with enough firepower and ammunition to lit the Chepauk Stadium in Chennai with some enthralling display. What a terrific finish this has been from Chennai! At the end of the 17th over, it looked like they would end up with a below par score but the fireworks off the bat of Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Ambati Rayudu has ensured a total that now looks pretty formidable on this wicket. The former especially got into the mood and ended up with 37 runs off just 23 balls! Sam Curran bore the brunt of this brutal attack as did Andrew Tye and Mohammed Shami in the final overs. After opting to bat first, Chennai got off to a flying start as they added 54 in the first 6 overs at a run rate of 9. The next nine overs though saw them just add 54 at the run rate of 6. That gives us a fair idea of how the pitch has slowed down. Post that, Punjab wrested control even further as the duo of Faf du Plessis and Suresh Raina perished while going to attack, though the former not before getting to a half ton. The runs were hard to come by for the new batting duo of Ambati Rayudu and Mahendra singh Dhoni but they somehow found their mojo in the end and powered Chennai to 160.
