The Kings, on the other hand, played in the IPL 2014 final against the Kolkata Knight Riders. But since then, they are yet to make their way through to the playoffs. The likes of Ravi Ashwin, KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal have not been able to turn their fortunes around.

After being asked to chase down a huge target of 201, the Kings got home off the last ball. Prabhsimran Singh top-scored with 42, but most of their batters chipped in with useful contributions.

Best match in the Chennai Super Kings vs Punjab Kings head to head

There have been several exciting matches between Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Punjab Kings (PBKS) in the Indian Premier League (IPL). One of the most memorable matches between these two teams was the encounter that took place on April 15, 2018, at the Punjab Cricket Association Stadium in Mohali.

In that match, Chennai Super Kings won the toss and elected to field first. Punjab Kings posted a competitive total of 197 runs for the loss of seven wickets in their 20 overs, thanks to half-centuries Chris Gayle and a good fighting knock from KL Rahul. This magnificent knock from Chris Gayle proved to be vital in the context of the game.

Chennai Super Kings did not have a good start to their chase, with Shane Watson and Murli Vijay losing their wickets early in the innings. However, Ambati Rayudu and MS Dhoni held the innings together in the middle overs and stitched a valuable partnership.

The responsibility of taking his team to victory fell on the shoulders of the veteran captain MS Dhoni, who smashed 5 sixes and 6 fours in his innings of 79 runs off 44 balls. He remained not out and guided his team to a fighting total which was however not good enough as PBKS won the match by 4 runs.

In the end, PBKS won the match by 4 runs in what was a thrilling encounter between two evenly matched teams. This match was particularly memorable for MS Dhoni's heroic innings and the exciting finish to the game.

Will CSK continue to dominate over PBKS or will the latter get the spoils, we can only wait to find out.
