CSK v KXP, IPL Match 31, Chennai: Balaji hat-trick highlights Chennai win

Lakshmipathy Balaji claimed five-for and became the first man to achieve a hat-trick in the Indian Premier League as the Chennai Super Kings posted an enthralling 18-run win over Kings XI Punjab on Saturday.
A fourth-wicket partnership of 91 between Subramaniam Badrinath (64) and captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni (60 not out) helped the Super Kings on their way to a total of 181 from 20 overs. The Kings' reply started well enough as opener Shaun Marsh posted 58 but the middle order failed to spark and the match was beyond the visitors by the time paceman Balaji struck in the final over to remove Irfan Pathan, Piyush Chawla and Vikram Singh in successive deliveries.
The win lifts Chennai to second place in the IPL points table with six wins from nine matches, while Punjab are third, two points behind but with a match in hand.
