Despite Chennai Super Kings (CSK) posting a formidable 212 runs, they knew they couldn’t rest easy against the ever-dangerous Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) batting line-up. Openers Travis Head and Abhishek Sharma posed a significant threat. Enter Tushar Deshpande, who rose to the occasion by dismissing both openers within the powerplay, a crucial three-wicket haul.

 

Tushar Deshpande’s spell effectively broke the backbone of SRH’s batting, leaving them reeling. CSK cruised to a comfortable victory, with Deshpande finishing with a well-deserved four-wicket haul.

#2 T Natarajan (SRH vs DC)

In a high-scoring encounter where a staggering 465 runs were scored, T Natarajan’s bowling spell stood out as a beacon of exceptional control and economy. He conceded a mere 19 runs in his four overs while bagging four crucial wickets, effectively dismantling DC’s chase.

 

This spell propelled SRH to a massive 67-run victory after they had posted a competitive 266 runs on the board. The final over of DC’s innings was a testament to Natarajan’s brilliance – a sensational triple-wicket maiden that sealed the deal for SRH.
