CSK Batters Power to Massive 206/6 Against GT

The Chennai Super Kings (CSK) unleashed a batting onslaught to post a formidable total of 206/6 against the Gujarat Titans (GT) in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 season at the MA Chidambaram Stadium.

CSK’s innings got off to a blistering start, with Rachin Ravindra continuing his impressive form in the powerplay. The young New Zealand opener amassed 46 off just 20 deliveries, including six fours and three maximums. Skipper Ruturaj Gaikwad provided solid support, helping CSK reach 69/1 before Ravindra’s dismissal.

Ajinkya Rahane failed to make an impact, but Shivam Dube wasted no time in taking the attack to GT. Dube sent the ball soaring into the stands on two consecutive deliveries, setting the tone for a middle-order onslaught. Gaikwad (46) fell just short of his half-century, but Daryl Mitchell picked up the pace with a quickfire 50 off 22 deliveries.

GT skipper Shubman Gill brought Rashid Khan back into the attack, but the Afghanistan spinner could only remove Dube on the second ball of the 19th over. Sameer Rizvi made an immediate impact, smashing two sixes in his first over in the IPL. Rizvi’s cameo helped CSK reach a massive total of 206/6.

GT now faces a daunting task in chasing down the target at Chepauk, where CSK has a formidable record. The Titans will need to pull off a record chase to secure victory.
