    IPL Live Score, KXIP vs CSK IPL Score: KL Rahul, Chris Gayle Off To A Fiery Start In Chase Of 171

    newsbazar24: IPL 2019, Kings XI Punjab vs Chennai Super Kings Live Score: CSK are placed at the top of the points table, while KXIP are bottom. Chennai Super Kings (CSK) have posted 170/5 in their 20 overs against Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) at the IS Bindra Stadium in Mohali. CSK were sent to bat first by KXIP captain Ravichandran Ashwin, who won the toss. KXIP started well, with Sam Curran (3/35) getting Shane Watson's wicket early on. Faf du Plessis (96) and Suresh Raina (53) put on a 120-run partnership before Sam Curran removed Raina against the run of play. Faf du Plessis shifted gears after reaching his fifty and at one point of time it looked as if he would take his team's total near the 200-mark. However, it was Curran who had the last laugh against the South African too, getting the ball to deflect off his pads into the stumps. CSK's ambitions of going for the final push received a jolt with Curran's late strike, and it was further jolted by two wickets by Mohammed Shami (2/17 ) in the last over. If CSK lose their last league match, they might be pushed down to second if Mumbai Indians (MI) win later in the day against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR). KXIP, who have plummeted down to the last spot after a disappointing showing in the later half of the season, have an impossible task to qualify for the playoffs but will be playing for pride.--ndtv read more...
