The ever-reliable Faf du Plessis led the charge in the summit clash of the Indian Premier League 2021 with his 22nd half-century in the tournament. Though Sunil Narine got rid of dangerman Ruturaj Gaikwad a bit earlier than CSK would have liked, du Plessis was typically busy at the crease and steered the scoreboard to 104/1 after 12 overs. He reached the landmark in style, hoisting Lockie Ferguson over long-off for a six. Chennai are in the fast lane now thanks to the momentum injected into the innings by the experienced campaigner.
