It was a brilliant game on Sunday between Chennai Super Kings and Punjab Kings. In the end, it was the visiting side that won the match. Here, we take a look at how Twitter reacted as Tushar Deshpande becomes the Purple Cap Holder after a poor outing against Punjab Kings.
A brilliant game of cricket
CSK actually had an average start with the bat, although they did not lose wickets. However, after Devon Conway and Shivam Dube found form, it was difficult to stop them. In the end, MS Dhoni also hit two sixes to take CSK to a score of 200. On this pitch, it appeared that this would be enough for the team to win the game.
Punjab Kings started well with a good scoring rate. However, in the middle, they ran into a wall as scoring runs became difficult. The likes of Ravindra Jadeja applied pressure with some timely wickets. However, the over by Tushar Deshpande to Liam Livingstone changed the game as PBKS scored more than 20 runs. Although Matheesha Pathirana tried his best to win the game, Raza scored 3 runs in the last ball to take his team across the line.
Twitter reacts as Tushar becomes the new Purple Cap Holder
Meanwhile, Tushar Deshpande became the new Purple Cap Holder. However, many on the internet, especially the CSK fans, were upset with the player. It was his two overs that gave away the momentum to the opposition. If he had conceded at least 10 runs less, CSK would have won this game with ease. That said, a few argued that the Mumbai cricketer just had a bad game on the day. Although he had a poor start to the tournament, he has actually been decent in the last few games, bowling well in the death overs. Here is how Twitter reacted to the same:
