Yash Thakur was at the receiving end of a brilliant power-hitting show from Shivam Dube during the game between Chennai Super Kings and Lucknow Super Giants at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai on Tuesday (April 23).

LSG captain KL Rahul handed the ball to Thakur to deliver the 16th over with well-set Ruturaj Gaikwad and Shivam Dube batting in the middle. The right-arm pacer had bowled well till that stage. In his first two overs, he had given away just 12 runs in addition to picking up the crucial wicket of Daryl Mitchell.

He started the over on a good note as well by conceding a single to Gaikwad. Yash Thakur, however, was taken to the cleaners by Dube. The in-form left-handed batsman hit the LSG pacer for three sixes in a row. The second ball of the over was on the pads and Dube flicked it over deep mid-wicket for a six.

The third ball was a slower delivery and Dube picked it quickly before hitting another six over deep mid-wicket. After conceding two sixes in a row, Yash Thakur probably tried something different and ended up losing his balance.

He fell awkwardly after delivering the ball as he probably tried to put more force on the delivery to avoid getting it for another six. However, it made no difference at all as Dube hit that delivery for a six as well. Fortunately, Yash Thakur did not suffer any injury due to the fall and went on to complete his over. He bowled two dot balls to complete the over.

Talking about the game, CSK finished their innings on 210 for 4 in 20 overs after being asked to bat first. Ruturaj Gaikwad led from the very front and scored an unbeaten century, thus becoming the first-ever CSK captain to score an IPL ton. Dube, on the other hand, scored 66 runs from just 27 balls.
