Chennai Super Kings vs Kings XI Punjab
Thursday, 21 May 2009
Good bowling, coupled with some irresponsible batting, enabled Kings XI Punjab restrict Chennai Super Kings to a paltry 116 to nine in their Indian Premier League match at Kingsmead, Durban on Wednesday.
Irfan Pathan (4-0-32-2) and S Sreesanth (4-0-23-2) were the pick of the Punjab bowlers while their Australian spearhead, Brett Lee (4-0-16-0) was impressive yet again, giving away just three runs in his final two overs.
The bane of the Chennai innings was their inability to forge a steady partnership that could have ensured their total a semblance of respectability.
Going into the match Chennai had witnessed quite a few ups and downs in their fortunes
