MS Dhoni got his golden duck of the season after Harshal Patel dismissed him in the very first ball after Shardul Thakur’s departure.

Chennai Super Kings posted 167 runs to the board besides struggling in the middle overs and restricted Punjab Kings to just 139 runs and won the match by 28 runs. 

This important win caused CSK to jump into 3rd place in the points table with 12 points in 11 matches. CSK had 3 more remaining matches in the Ipl 2024 group stage. 

3 out of 3 wins will surely place CSK in the playoffs independently while 2 wins in 3 games may depend upon LSG and SRH’s performance for the qualification. 

what’s your view can CSK make it into the Playoff this time too? or they will end up in the group stages only? comment your views.
