Who Said What

CSK captain, Ruturaj Gaikwad: Total control right from the start. 2-3 overs here and there but once the spinners came on, we were in control. 10-15 runs lesser would have been great but they came back well. [Turning point?] To get Maxwell and even Faf out, the quick wickets were the turning point. Helps to control the next five-six overs. That was the main point. [Captaincy debut] I have always enjoyed it. Haven’t felt the additional pressure, right from the state side. Not even a single time I felt pressurized by anything. Obviously had Mahi bhai with me. [On the chase] Everyone is a stroke-player in our side, even Jinx. There is role clarity in the batting unit. Helps a lot. Lots of positives, but two-three things to work on. The batting, everyone chipped in. If we had a few batters from the top-order batting through, the chase would have been easier.

Faf du Plessis: You have to get ahead in the first six overs. Chennai squeeze you with their spinners. We lost too many wickets in the first six overs. We were 15-20 runs short on a pitch that wasn’t as bad as we played in the first ten overs We were always a little bit behind trying to get ahead of the game. They were always ahead of the game. [Short ball plan] Dube wasn’t comfortable with the short ball, we were trying to get a few wickets in the middle overs. But didn’t happen. [Batting first] If you look at the stats, it is very in favour of batting first. It looked a bit on the drier side. The spinners, in the second innings, the ball started to grip a bit. We backed our seamers against Dube. But batting first was the right decision. [On DK and Rawat] Really good for Dinesh setting up the season for someone who hasn’t really played a lot of cricket in the last year. Really important knock for himself. Rawat showed some really promise even last year. He showed composure.

Rachin Ravindra: Pretty complete performance by us. We held our nerves. Batting with Jinx [Rahane] and Rutu, very calm heads. Lucky we had 4-5 days of good training. I find it easier going from red ball to white ball because I think the positions are the same, [Form] It’s been good. The wickets were a bit different in training but I backed myself in the game. The experience of the amazing crowd was great. Helps a lot.

Chennai, March 22, 2024: In a spectacular start to the 17th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024, the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) clinched a thrilling victory over the Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai on Friday.

Chasing a challenging target of 174 runs for victory, CSK’s batters displayed remarkable resilience, with every member of the team making valuable contributions. Leading the charge was Rachin Ravindra, whose blistering knock of 37 runs off just 15 balls set the tone for the chase. Despite facing a precarious situation at 110/4, Ravindra Jadeja and Shivam Dube’s resilient partnership of 66 runs ensured CSK’s victory with six wickets in hand.

Earlier in the match, RCB posted a competitive total of 173/5 in their allotted 20 overs. The Bengaluru outfit found themselves struggling at 78/5 in the 11.4 overs, courtesy of Mustafizur Rahman’s exceptional bowling performance, claiming two wickets in each of his first two overs. However, Anuj Rawat and Dinesh Karthik orchestrated a remarkable recovery, stitching an unbeaten partnership of 95 runs off just 50 balls to propel RCB to a respectable total.

RCB skipper Faf du Plessis won the toss and elected to bat first, a decision that seemed justified as his team put up a fighting total on the board. Meanwhile, all eyes were on MS Dhoni, whose inclusion in the playing 11 was under speculation. Dhoni, the seasoned campaigner, showcased his prowess as a wicket-keeper batter for CSK, contributing significantly to his team’s victory.
