Sandeep Sharma dismisses CSK's Faf du Plessis for Golden duck

In a surprising move, CSK sent in Sam Curran to open the innings along with Faf du Plessis. 

The in-form Faf du Plessis was dismissed for a golden duck by SRH pacer Sandeep Sharma. In the opening two overs, du Plessis didn't face a single delivery and it looked like he lost his concentration. On the first ball of the third over, he nicked an in-swinger and Bairstow took an easy catch. 

Faf du Plessis had been in fantastic form so far in IPL 2020. Sharma followed it up by removing the dangerous looking Sam Curran (31 Off 21 balls).
