Rachin Ravindra's hopes of scoring big on his return to the Chennai Super Kings' playing eleven was quashed by a brilliant throw from David Miller in the ongoing game at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad.

Ravindra had last played for CSK on April 19 when he was dismissed for a duck against Lucknow Super Giants before being recalled to the team for the ongoing game against Gujarat Titans. However, New Zealand could score only 1 run in two balls before being dismissed in the very first over of the CSK innings.

On the final ball of the over bowled by Umesh Yadav, Ajinkya Rahane just defended the ball and set off for a quick single. Ravindra duly obliged and left the crease. However, before he could get back inside the crease safely, David Miller came charging in from backward point, picked the ball, and hit the wicket with an underarm throw while diving.

Watch as David Miller runs out Rachin Ravindra:

Talking about the ongoing game, CSK were reeling at 66 for 3 in the eighth over at the time of writing this report. At one stage, they were reduced to 10 for 3 before Daryl Mitchell and Moeen Ali steadied the ship. Both the batters are now well set and CSK will be hoping that they bat them to a good position.

Earlier in the game, centuries from Shubman Gill and Sai Sudharsan powered GT to a huge total of 231 for 3 in 20 overs after they were asked to bat first. The duo shared a mammoth 210-run stand for the first wicket. Gill scored 104 runs while Sudharsan scored  103.

CSK will be desperate to win the ongoing game to bolster their playoff chances. With six wins and five losses, they are currently in the fourth spot in the points table. Even if they lose the game, they will have a chance to make it to the playoffs but it will complicate the entire qualification scenario. GT, on the other hand, are all but out of the playoff race.
