Chennai Super Kings win by nine wickets and have officially crashed Punjab's dreams of qualifying for the play-offs. It was a convincing victory for Chennai as they restricted Punjab to a decent target and also chased it down with ease. Ruturaj Gaikwad has made three consecutive fifties and top-scored with 62, yet again winning a game for the yellow army. Well accompanied by Faf du Plessis with 48. For Punjab, Chris Jordan was the only wicket taker and the other bowlers went wicket-less. Ruturaj Gaikwad is also the first CSK player to score three consecutive half centuries. Kings XI Punjab remain fifth in the points table and Chennai Super Kings advance to seventh. Punjab and Chennai finish the season with six wins and 12 points each. Ruturaj Gaikwad has been adjudged as the man of the match, he is also one of the best finds for CSK this season and will look to extract the best from him in the upcoming seasons. Not the result Punjab would have wanted and KL Rahul sure does look disappointed. Join us for the next match played between Kolkata and Rajasthan. Live from Dubai International Cricket Stadium, Dubai. Until then, cheers.
