What happened on the pitch?

Sometimes we work really hard but it doesn’t pay off. Yesterday this happened with Chennai Super Kings. LSG won the toss and opted to bowl against CSK. CSK made a huge target like 210/4 in 20 overs. However, they couldn’t save the match. LSG chased down it.

CSK captain Ruturaj Gaikwad crafted a masterful century. Ruturaj scored 108* in 60 balls. He became the first captain of CSK who scored a century and it is his second century in the IPL.

Chennai lost Ajinkya Rahane (1 off 3 balls) early, and Daryl Mitchell (11 off 10 balls) also did not last long. Even Ravindra Jadeja had an unusually slow innings. Before getting out, he scored 16 off 19 balls with a strike rate of 84.21.

Shivam Dube rightly backed the efforts of his captain. He muscled his way to 66 off just 27 balls with a strike rate of 244.44. Dube’s innings ensured the momentum swung firmly in CSK’s favor as they posted a challenging total of 210/4 on the board.

LSG’s response was less than ideal. They lost Quinton de Kock early without troubling the scorers. Quinton de Kock was out for a duck in the first over as he dragged Deepak Chahar’s delivery to his stumps. Captain KL Rahul could only muster 16 runs before falling to Mustafizur Rahman.

At this juncture, the match seemed to tilt in CSK’s favor, but what followed was nothing short of extraordinary.

We can’t stop praising the Australian all-rounder Marcus Stoinis. He is already known for his ferocious batting. However, yesterday we saw it live, again.

Stoinis raced to an unbeaten 124 from 63 balls. His innings, laden with 13 boundaries and six maximums, irreversibly shifted the game’s momentum.

Nicholas Pooran’s 34 runs off 15 balls helped Stoinis’ cause as they stunned Chepauk into silence. LSG crossed the finish line with six wickets still in hand and three balls to spare.

Stoinis’ sensational knock will be remembered as one of the finest in IPL history. He was awarded the Player of the Match.

Post-match reaction: who said what?

“Tough pill to swallow, but LSG played a good game at the end. We had the game in hand around the 13th over, but hats off to Stoinis. There was a huge part that the dew played. It took the spinners away from the game. We could have taken the game deeper. But, it is a part of the game, you can’t control the uncontrollable,” Ruturaj said after the match.

LSG skipper KL Rahul called it a “very special” win during the post-match presentation ceremony.

“It felt like we were way behind the game in the chase. Just to pull off a victory feels special. These were different conditions. They got off to a good start and put pressure on the bowlers. I didn’t think it was a 210 wicket. All credit to Stoinis. He was phenomenal to watch. It was not just power hitting, but was smart batting,” Rahul said.

Final words:

Ruturaj is the first captain of CSK who scored a century. Well, now it is true that Ruturaj has made a record overcoming Thala — such a big achievement.  Stay connected to to get all the sports updates on time.
