Liam Livingstone has put in a major shift with bat and ball as Punjab Kings beat Chennai Super Kings by 54 runs in the Indian Premier League.
The English allrounder smacked 60 off 32 balls, took 2-25, and made the last catch to send Chennai to a third consecutive defeat on Sunday.
Riding on Livingstone's outstanding effort, Punjab scored 8-180, then bowled out Chennai for 126 to register their second win in three games.
"The first two games hadn't gone my way," Livingstone said.
"I struggled with the Rajasthan Royals last year so it's nice to have a performance like this.
"I have been swinging hard and it was nice to get a couple off the middle. Bowling is something I really enjoy and I have spent a lot of time on it."
Put in to bat, Punjab were quickly reduced to 2-14 before Livingstone and Shikhar Dhawan put on 95 off 52 balls.
Livingstone hit five fours and five sixes and reached his maiden IPL half-century off 27 balls, while Dhawan added 33.
Chennai applied the brakes on the scoring rate in the second half of Punjab's innings, with only 71 coming off the last 60 deliveries, compared to 109 off the first 60.
Dwaine Pretorious (2-30) and Chris Jordan (2-23) helped peg back Punjab, who still finished with a defendable score at Brabourne Stadium.
Chennai made an even worst start than Punjab with last season's top scorer, Ruturaj Gaikwad, dismissed for one, his third successive single-digit score.
Moeen Ali chopped on for a two-ball duck, and Robin Uthappa was out caught for 13.
Vaibhav Arora did the damage with the new ball, picking up 2-21 in four overs.
When Arshdeep Singh bowled Chennai captain Ravindra Jadeja for a three-ball duck and Odean Smith dismissed Ambati Rayudu, Punjab were 5-36 and on borrowed time.
Shivam Dube did crack 57 off 30 balls for a second consecutive half-century but he was caught off Livingstone, while Punjab spinner Rahul Chahar took 3-25 as he feasted on the lower order.
