Du Plessis, Harbhajan fire CSK to 22-run win over KXIP

Mahendra Singh Dhoni was again at the centre of a freaky incident when the bails were not dislodged despite the ball making contact with the stumps.

Despite a valiant effort from Sarfaraz Khan and KL Rahul, Kings XI Punjab failed to chase down 161 against Chennai Super Kings, losing the game by 22 runs at Chepauk. The bails however refuse to come off to give the Karnataka opener a lifeline in a stiff run chase of 161 on a hard wicket. Harbhajan's variations kept the KXIP batsmen guessing at all times, and the bowler finished with excellent figures 2-17 from his four overs.
