During the 56th match of the 11th season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) between Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) at Pune, Chennai Super Kings’ Dwayne Bravo took his revenge on Karun Nair in his last over.

Earlier MS Dhoni, captain of Chennai Super Kings, had won the toss and chose to field. Chennai Super Kings chose Faf du Plessis over Shane Watson in the last league match of this season. On the other hand, Kings XI Punjab brought in David Miller and Karun Nair into the playing eleven in place of Marcus Stoinis and Yuvraj Singh.

Nair came in to bat at No. 6 in the 12th over when his team was struggling at 76-4. Bravo was introduced into the attack in the 10th over of the innings. Bowling his last over, he conceded 17 runs and picked up a wicket.

On the third delivery of the penultimate over, Nair picked Bravo’s slower delivery well in time to hit it for a towering six over deep fine-leg. On the following delivery, he stepped out to hit a short ball for another six on the leg-side to bring up his half-century. Watch the videos:

On the next delivery, Bravo finally got on top of the batsman when he mis-timed the ball to Deepak Chahar at mid-off. Nair ended up scoring 54 (26) with the help of three fours and five sixes. Watch the video:
