Chennai Super Kings’ Mitchell Santner was promoted to one-down for batting, which turned out to be a misery when he was dismissed quickly by Arshdeep Singh for just nine runs from 15 balls against Punjab Kings, which was CSK’s second wicket in the powerplay.
Due to older overseas stars hogging the majority of the foreign berths in the CSK team, Santner usually finds himself on the bench in the IPL. In his limited opportunities, he had proven his worth and expected to become a more frequent starter in the future.
Santner was given the opportunity to represent New Zealand after Daniel Vettori announced his retirement from the sport. He’s a direct replacement for the veteran.
Sandeep Sharma, Rishi Dhawan, and Arshdeep Singh each have taken one wicket for PBKS. Earlier, Shikhar Dhawan hit an undefeated 88 to help PBKS to a total of 187/4 in 20 overs. PBKS got off to a slow start after being put into bat, losing Mayank Agarwal in the powerplay. Dhawan and Rajapaksa (42), on the other hand, stabilised the course, scoring 110 runs for the second wicket. Liam Livingstone contributed some extra sparks to their innings, scoring 19 off only 7 balls, keeping Dhawan undefeated.
