Lungi Ngidi’s 4/10 and Suresh Raina’s unbeaten 61 helped Chennai Super Kings beat Kings XI Punjab by five wickets in the last league game of IPL 2018 at the MCA Stadium, Pune on Sunday. With the loss, KXIP were knocked out while Rajasthan Royals qualified for the playoffs.
A fresh track at Feroz Shah Kotla, for Delhi Daredevils' first home game of the season, had plenty to offer for the pacers and appeared one of the quickest wickets so far in IPL 2018. Using that to their advantage Daredevils managed to restrict Kings XI Punjab to 143 for 8, thanks to the efforts of Liam Plunkett and Avesh Khan. However, it was a combination of pace and spin that did the trick for Kings XI Punjab as they overcame a Shreyas Iyer half-century to top the table with a four-run win.
