Chennai Super Kings played host to Gujarat Titans in Match 7 of the IPL 2024 at the MA Chidambaram Stadium on Tuesday. Shubman Gill won the toss and opted to bat first which caught even presenters by surprise. CSK batters did not wait for an invitation and feasted on the Chepauk which displayed batting written all over it. Ruturaj Gaikwad and Rachin Ravindra were off to a great start as the defending champions piled up 62 runs for the first wicket. Ravindra contributed 46 runs in that partnership before getting dismissed.

However, Ajinkya Rahane failed to provide his touch, but Shivam Dube promoted up the order and compensated for it as he notched 51 off just 23 deliveries. Daryl Mitchell and Sameer Rizvi saw through the death overs and with Ravindra Jadeja getting out on the final delivery, CSK posted a mammoth 206 runs.

GT started off well but soon went out of contention in the run chase. They lost Shubman Gill early on and Wriddhiman Saha too left without any substantial contribution. Deepak Chahar claimed both the wickets and the Titans were in dire need of a comeback. Sai Sudharsan played a slow knock of 37 runs and there was no one to up the ante, Vijay Shankar departed thereafter after an arduous stay. David Miller showed some intent with his 16 ball 21 runs innings. However, GT’s saviours Rahul Tewatia and Rashid Khan too succumbed as CSK walked away with 63 run victory.
