The Toss and First Innings

The toss was taken by Chennai Super Kings captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni and he decided to bowl first. The decision paid off as CSK’s bowlers put up a disciplined performance, restricting KKR to a modest total of 137 for nine. The standout performers with the ball were Tushar Deshpande and Ravindra Jadeja, who claimed three wickets each. Left-arm pacer Mustafizur Rahman also chipped in with two crucial wickets, donning the purple cap once again.

KKR’s innings never gained momentum, and their batsmen struggled to find the boundaries. Skipper Shreyas Iyer fought a lone battle, scoring a gritty 67 runs, but lacked support from the other end. CSK’s fielding was sharp, and they executed their plans to perfection.

Ruturaj Gaikwad’s Heroics

Chasing a target of 138, CSK got off to a solid start, thanks to the opening pair of Ruturaj Gaikwad and Faf du Plessis. Gaikwad, in particular, played a gem of an innings, remaining unbeaten on 67 runs. His elegant strokeplay and calm demeanor guided CSK towards victory. The young right-hander showcased his class and temperament, anchoring the innings beautifully.

CSK’s Middle Order Shines

After du Plessis departed, Suresh Raina and Ambati Rayudu continued the momentum. Raina’s aggressive intent and Rayudu’s stability ensured that CSK never lost control of the chase. The duo added valuable runs, and with just 14 balls remaining, CSK crossed the finish line.

Jadeja’s All-Round Brilliance

Not only did Jadeja contribute with the ball, but he also played a crucial cameo with the bat. His unbeaten 19 runs off just 8 balls included two massive sixes, sealing the victory for CSK. Jadeja’s all-round brilliance earned him the Player of the Match award.


CSK’s win over KKR has rejuvenated their campaign in IPL 2024. With this victory, they climb up the points table and send a strong message to the other teams. KKR, on the other hand, will need to regroup and address their batting woes.
