Last night, Kings XI Punjab won the match beating Chennai Super Kings by 4 runs. What made it more special was the fact that Kings XI Punjab was playing on their home ground at the Punjab Cricket Association Stadium, Mohali.
Chennai Super Kings had won both the previous matches it played. This match could have been their third win.
As the match was a home game for KXIP, they didn’t disappoint their fans. However the fans of CSK were left heartbroken not because of the match but because of many efforts made by Dhoni to win the match till the last ball.
Dhoni sank in all the pressure and remained calm till the end of the match, he made the chase look easy but he fell short of 4 runs.
However, in all the three games, CSK delivered a thrilling performance not just with their batting but with their bowling and fielding too.
Now when the team lost it’s first match yesterday, the pace bowler, Imran Tahir took to twitter to apologize to his fans for the defeat of his team.Although he took two big wickets of Mayank Agarwal and Aaron Finch but he felt bad for conceded 35 runs in his quota of 4 overs in the last night’s game against Kings XI Punjab.
His heartfelt tweet is winning hearts of social media, have a look at his tweet:
