Chennai Super Kings rose to the top of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 points table with an 18 run victory over Kolkata Knight Riders at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on Wednesday (April 21). CSK selector Deepak Chahar was the bowlers’ choice, claiming 4/29 and pushing KKR to the back by reducing them to 31 for 5.
Deepak Chahar’s sister, Malti, has been a die-hard CSK for obvious reasons. On Wednesday, ahead of CSK’s game against the Kolkata Knight Riders, Malti gave fans a glimpse of how she is rooting for MS Dhoni and his men. Wearing a yellow top and the cricket gear, Malti took to socializing and shared a photo. The picture has drawn countless responses and fans are thrilled.
Malti was often seen in the stands during CSK games. This year, she has not been visiting the IPL locations due to the COVID-19 pandemic in the country. Even though she wasn’t there in the middle, her unique way of supporting seems to work as CSK has won three games in a row to zoom to the top of the points table.
Here is the photo posted by Malti before the CSK match with KKR:

Malti is a regular visitor to CSK games and first came to light when she was seen supporting CSK from the stands. Here are some of her HOT photos, which have been sizzling on social media …
95 magnificent Faf du Plessis not out and Deepak Chahar’s impressive four-wicket haul over a glittering half-century by Andre Russell and Pat Cummins as Chennai Super Kings defeated Kolkata Knight Riders by 18 runs.
Put into bats, CSK posted a grand total of 220 for 3, riding a 60-ball unbeaten 95 P du Plessis and 64. Ruturaj Gaikwad at 64. Pursuing a stiff target, KKR found themselves in trouble deep as they fell to 31 for 5 inside five overs after a first-class collapse with Chahar wrecking havoc with figures of 4 for 29 of his four overs.
Russell (54 off 22 balls) and Cummins (66 not out of 34 balls) raised hopes of an unlikely victory for KKR but in the end, they were all out for 202 in 19.1 overs.
Needing 190 runs of 15 overs, Russell first revived a KKR hunt with blistering 54 (3 × 4, 6 × 6) before being cleaned by Sam Curran.
Cummins beat Curran for 30 runs with four sixes and one boundary in the 16th over to keep the run alive, even as they continued to lose wickets. It was down to 20 runs with one wicket in hand in the last over. But Prasidh Krishna was ruled out in the first round of the final over.
