Opting to bat first, CSK openers Ruturaj Gaikwad and Rachin Ravindra provided a solid foundation, racing to a quickfire 100-run partnership within the first 10 overs. While Ravindra fell soon after, Shivam Dube stole the show with a blistering knock of 51 runs off just 23 balls, peppering the boundaries with five sixes. Debutant Sameer Rizvi added valuable late runs to propel CSK to a commanding total of 206/6.

The Gujarat Titans chase never got going. Openers Shubman Gill and Wriddhiman Saha fell cheaply, and the middle order failed to build any momentum. Despite the lack of wickets for the CSK spinners, disciplined pace bowling from Deepak Chahar, Mustafizur Rahman, and Tushar Deshpande restricted the scoring rate. GT eventually succumbed for a meagre 143/8, handing CSK a comprehensive victory.

All-round Performance for CSK

This was a complete performance from the Chennai Super Kings. Their batsmen put up a strong total, with contributions from various players. While the spinners were quiet on the wickets front, the pacers did an excellent job by stifling the GT chase. This win takes CSK to the top of the IPL 2024 points table.
