IPL 2023: 3 Talking Points Of CSK vs PBKS Game

CSK vs PBKS 2023

Chennai Super Kings (CSK) fell short in their Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 game versus Punjab Kings (PBKS). After some disciplined batting, Punjab bagged the honours of the game at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai.

Batting first, Chennai posted a mammoth total of 200 runs on the board. But Punjab chased it down and the game was once again an absolute thriller of a game.

Tushar Deshpande now holds the Purple Cap in IPL 2023 as he has bagged the most number of wickets. In 9 games, Deshpande has bagged 17 wickets and looks in good touch.

In this article, we take a look at the top 3 talking points of the CSK vs PBKS game in the ongoing IPL 2023:

1. Devon Conway’s breath-taking knock of 92* runs

Devon Conway is batting like he is in a different league altogether. The Chennai Super Kings batter scored an unbeaten knock of 92* runs in just 52 balls and his knock was packed with 16 fours and 1 six.

He has so far scored 414 runs in 9 games and has a stupendous average of 59.14. Conway is brimming with confidence and he can well lay his hands on the prestigious Orange Cap in IPL 2023.

2. Tushar Deshpande picks wickets but is expensive

Even though Tushar Deshpande bagged 3 wickets in this CSK vs PBKS game, he leaked a lot of runs. His wickets included PBKS skipper Shikhar Dhawan, Liam Livingstone and Jitesh Sharma.

But Deshpande’s economy was 12.25 and that is too high for a bowler in the T20 format. The CSK bowler really needs to bowl more economical spells and thereby help the CSK team. Team Chennai now have lost two matches on the bounce.

3. Prabhsimran Singh’s blitz at the top

Prabhsimran Singh fired on all cylinders and scored a fantastic knock of 42 runs in 24 balls. His knock was laced with 4 fours and 2 sixes. Singh had a brilliant strike-rate of 175.00 and had given the perfect start to PBKS.

Singh is very young and if given the right exposure and guidance, he could well be a defining force for India in the coming times.
