Chennai Super Kings after a great start have slowed down in the middle overs as the team have failed to capitalize on the momentum despite Ruturaj Gaikwad standing in the middle. While the Yellow Army started off good Joshua Little played a crucial role in pulling the game back towards Gujarat Titans as he dismissed Ambati Rayudu who was slowly starting to look good.
With Ruturaj Gaikwad firing at one end, the CSK opener needed support from the other end but did not receive a lot from his supporting batters as they walked back to the dugout one after the other. The Irishman Joshua Little who was brought in by the Titans during this edition of the IPL auction pitched in a brilliant delivery as he saw Rayudu coming down the track and pitched the ball away and onto the stumps as he send the stumps rolling away.
