CSK vs GT IPL 2024: Chennai Super Kings Beat Gujarat Titans by 63 Runs

CSK vs GT, IPL 2024:Chennai Super Kings batters dazzled before the bowlers ran riot to choke Gujarat Titans in a comprehensive 63-run victory in their second IPL match on Tuesday.

Ruturaj Gaikwad’s team has covered all its bases and it was evident as Rachin Ravindra prepared a platform with 20-ball-46 allowing Shivam Dube to unlock his beast mode with a 23-ball-51.

In between, Gaikwad himself maintained the balance with 36-ball-46 as Chennai’s 206 for 6 was a Herculean total in every sense.

Titans in reply could manage only 143/8 as Chahar (2/28 in 4 overs), Mustafizur Rahman (2/30 in 4 overs), Tushar Deshpande (2/21) and Matheesha Pathirana (1/29 in 4 overs) one by one tightened the noose on Titans batting unit.

If Gujarat needed to make a match of it, Shubman Gill needed to fire but his poor shot selection of a Deepak Chahar delivery, which wasn’t as short as expected for a pull-shot, brought about his downfall.

Once Shubman was gone, Gujarat didn’t even have a chance in hell with players like Wriddhiman Saha (21 off 17 balls) and B Sai Sudharsan (37, 31 balls), players, who on most days are pillion riders, playing second fiddle to perfection.

As it was the case, finishers like David Miller (21) and Rahul Tewatia (1) didn’t have enough on the board to go for the improbable chase and the inevitable happened.

Put into bat, Rachin’s slam-bang approach and Dube’s final flourish got CSK past 200-run mark.
