WATCH : Deshpande cleaning up Bairstow and Rossouw to offer a dream CSK start


Failing to win the toss for the tenth consecutive time in IPL 2024, Ruturaj Gaikwad showcased resilience by forming a 57-run partnership with Daryl Mitchell for the second wicket before PBKS bowlers struck back.

Despite their efforts, a determined Ravindra Jadeja’s 43 runs propelled them to a total of 167/9 in their allotted 20 overs. CSK, defending this challenging total, aimed for early breakthroughs, and Deshpande delivered, dismissing Jonny Bairstow and Rilee Rossouw in a single over.

After Mitchell Santner’s economical first over, Deshpande bowled a well-directed delivery to Bairstow in the second over, inducing an inside edge that crashed into the stumps.

Subsequently, he produced another superb delivery that breached Rossouw’s defense, sending the stumps cartwheeling. Rossouw misjudged the movement off the pitch, leading to a double-wicket over that ignited excitement both on the field and across social media platforms.

CSK gets off to a dream start as a rapid length delivery skids on, leaving Rossouw struggling to defend in time. The ball zooms past his bat and crashes into the stumps, marking an ideal beginning for CSK.
