Put in to bat first, Punjab Kings witnessed a horrific start as the side lost four wickets before the completion of the powerplay.

Chahar wreaked havoc as he sent back Punjab Kings’ top order except for skipper KL Rahul, who became the victim of Ravindra Jadeja’s brilliant throw.

Chahar first cleaned up Mayank for a duck in the first over and then dismissed Gayle and Pooran in one over to reduce Punjab to 19/4 after Rahul’s run out.
Deepak Hooda and Shahrukh Khan were in the middle for Punjab Kings at the end of the powerplay but the former chipped it straight to mid-off in the seventh over Chahar bagged his fourth wicket for the day.
