CSK, who have played 8 matches so far, have won just two of them and are ninth on the points table.

Only if they win the remaining six matches will they have a chance to advance to the play-off round.

Thus, CSK are in a position to act very, very carefully in all of the upcoming matches. With the win against Chennai, Punjab team has moved up to 6th position in the points table with 8 points.

The Punjab Kings, who batted first in the match, were 187 for 4 at the end of 20 overs. Shikhar Dhawan top-scored with 88 not out. Subsequently, in CSK, Rayudu was the only batsman to score. All the balls were bowled for sixes and fours.

Rayudu, who faced 39 balls, had scored 78 runs with 7 fours and 6 sixes. However, the situation changed when he was ruled out of the Rabada innings. At the end of 20 overs, Chennai team had scored only 176 runs for the loss of 6 wickets. In this context, former player RP Singh has criticized Jadeja and commented on the reason for Chennai's defeat.

CSK captain Jadeja was on the field till the last, scoring 21 off 16 balls. In that, he had scored only 14 runs in the first 14 balls. Speaking on the occasion, RP Singh said, "His strike rate was not good, had he scored more quickly, Chennai Super Kings might have had 17-18 runs to chase in the final over. Rayudu was playing at a good rate, but none of the other batters did."

"You can reach close to the target with just one player scoring briskly, but to win you need three or four players like that. Had CSK scored even 30 runs off the 17,18 and 19th over, they would have closed the game off with MS Dhoni in the end. Overall a good bowling performance by PBKS, Rahul Chahar was not at his best, but still."

As RP Singh said, it is noteworthy that if Jadeja had scored a quick run early on, surely the outcome of the match might have changed as well.

The 8th Behindwoods Gold Medals Awards will be held this year on May 15 and 22 at the Island Grounds in Chennai from 6pm to 11.30pm. Ticket booking for this is currently underway.
