CSK vs PBKS: Twitter Reacts As CSK Loses 3rd Consecutive Game In IPL 2022 Season

Chennai Super Kings (CSK) terrible start to the IPL 2022 season continued as they were beaten comprehensively by Punjab Kings (PBKS) at the Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai on Sunday.

After being asked to bat first, Punjab was in trouble as they lost their first two wickets with the score reading 14. Liam Livingstone then joined hands with Shikhar Dhawan and the two put on 95 runs for the third wicket.

Livingstone was stunning in his batting, counter-attacking everything that the Chennai side threw at him. He smashed 60 runs in just 32 balls which included 5 fours and 5 maximums. Dhawan contributed with a 24-ball 33 as well.

However, once they fell, it was all downhill. From 109/2, all they could muster was 180 on the board. Debutante Jitesh Sharma scored a quickfire cameo of 26 in 17 balls that helped propel the score.

In response, CSK also began horribly. Ruturaj Gaikwad’s terrible start to the season continued as he was dismissed for 1. Both Moeen Ali and Ravindra Jadeja were dismissed for ducks soon after and Chennai was already behind at 36/5.

MS Dhoni and Shivam Dube attempted to revive the innings, with the latter bringing up a well-deserved century but it was never going to be enough. Eventually, they folded up for 126, handing PBKS a huge 54-run victory.

Rahul Chahar took 3 wickets for Punjab while Livingstone and debutante, Vaibhav Arora, took two wickets each. It is the third defeat on the trot for CSK and they have a lot to be concerned about.
