In their first home game of the ongoing IPL on Monday in Chennai, the Chennai Super Kings defeated the Lucknow Super Giants by a score of 12 runs thanks to performances from Ruturaj Gaikwad, Devon Conway, and Moeen Ali.
Gaikwad scored his second consecutive fifty, and he and Conway (47 off 29) shared 110 runs for the first wicket as CSK scored a dominant 217 for 7 after being put in to bat.
Gaikwad scored 57 off 31 with three fours and four sixes after scoring 92 in the first game. He had strong help from Conway, who struck five boundaries and two over the fence.
Mahendra Singh Dhoni, the captain of CSK, used the slow bowlers wisely while playing on home soil to secure the team’s first IPL victory.
Rahul played second fiddle while Mayers hit a second consecutive fifty to give LSG a head start. Mayers, who had reached 79 in only 5.2 overs, was caught in the deep by Conway after attempting a huge hit off Moeen Ali against the run of play.
A euphoric crowd had a sight of “Thala” (Dhoni) as he hit two enormous sixes before being bowled by Mark Wood for 12 off 3 balls while attempting a third. During his brief tenure, the legendary CSK captain reached the milestone of 5,000 runs in the IPL.
