Chennai Super Kings (CSK) were off the flying start with the bat, having been asked to bat first. Skipper Ruturaj Gaikwad and Rachin Ravindra came out all guns and made sure that they took their team off the flying start at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai.

Ajinkya Rahane (12) couldn’t make most of the opportunity as he perished early. But after that, it was all about Shivam Dube.

He scored 51 runs off just 23 balls, batting with a strike rate of around 222. Daryl Mitchell (24*) and Sameer Rizvi (14) played decent with the bat as well. Based on the vital efforts from the bat, Chennai Super Kings posted a total of 206 runs on the board.
