Rising Pune Supergiants and Kings XI Punjab were once again involved in a banter on twitter.
Both Kings XI Punjab and Rising Pune Supergiants, who were inolved in a bottom of the table clash,wanted to win the match to avoid the wooden spoon.
Batting first KXIP scored 172 runs from their 20 overs. RPS started poorly in their chaase as they lost two wickets with only 47 on the board. Usman Khawaja and Saurabh Tiwary added 31 runs for the third wicket, before Tiwary was dismissed by Gurkeerat Singh. The wicket tightened KXIP’s grip on the match and KXIP could not control their excitement and tweeted about the incident. The post showed a doodle pointing his finger upwards signalling out.
But then came MS Dhoni and played one of the best kock of the tournament to take Pune home. KXIP were looking all set to win the match as RPS needed 23 from the last over but then Dhoni blasted Axar Patel for three sixes and a four in the last five deliveries to seal the seventh spot for his team while KXIP ended the season at the eighth position.
