Netizens have started saying that Chahar crushed Punjab on Friday with the blessings of Guru Shamir. Many have also commented that Deepak Chahar got so many wickets because of Mohammad Shamir. Chahar single-handedly ended Punjab’s top order with four wickets for just 13 runs. Like Deepak, Shamir’s bowling was also great in this match. However, due to the batting disaster, his team has suffered a one-sided defeat in this match. Shami took two wickets for 21 runs in four overs.
Punjab was able to score only 107 runs in the allotted 20 overs. Newcomer Shah Rukh Khan was the only batsman to fight for Preity Zinta’s team. He scored 46 off 36 balls. In reply, Chennai achieved the target before the end of 16 overs. Moin Ali (46) is the highest run scorer for Chennai. Faf du Plessis remained unbeaten on 36 runs. Chahar was selected as the best player of the match for his great bowling.
