Chennai Super Kings star Sam Curran came up with a savage reply after being called naughty by commentator Ian Bishop for spoiling other teams’ parties in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL).
CSK, on Sunday, thrashed Kings XI Punjab by nine wickets to dump them out of the competition. CSK, who were out of the playoffs race, came up with a dominating display to see off KXIP and exit the tournament on a winning note. This is the first time in the history of the IPL that CSK missed out on a playoff spot.
MS Dhoni won the toss and invited KXIP to bat first. In reply, the KL Rahul-led side finished on 153 for 6 despite Deepak Hooda’s quickfire knock of unbeaten 62 from just 30 balls.
Chasing the total, CSK crossed the finishing line in the 19th over by losing just one wicket. In-form Ruturaj Gaikwad starred with the bat by scoring his third consecutive fifty. He remained unbeaten on 62 and shared 82 and 72-run stands with Faf du Plessis and Ambati Rayudu respectively.
Sam Curran’s savage reply:
Before the start of the clash against KXIP, Sam Curran hilariously boasted about CSK spoiling other teams’ parties in the tournament. Before dumping KXIP out of the tournament, the Chennai-based outfit had also defeated Royal Challengers Bangalore and Kolkata Knight Riders. Both the teams’ playoffs chances is currently hanging by a thread.
“Other teams partied the other day when we beat Kolkata, they are probably struggling for the playoffs now. Now hopefully if we beat Kings XI, they’ll be out as well. It’s all good fun,” Sam Curran told Bishop.
Bishop then called the England star naughty for being the party pooper, saying: “That’s very naughty of you really to be spoiling other people’s parties all the time.”
Sam Curran then hilariously pointed out how other teams had spoiled CSK’s parties earlier in the competition, saying:
“They spoiled out party earlier in the competition by beating us. So let’s try beat them today.”
