Gujarat Titans (GT) had won the toss & opted to bowl first against CSK. CSK got off to a topsy-turvy start where they scored 51 runs in the power-play overs for 2 wickets. Ruturaj Gaikwad unleashed an attack on the opposition. Ruturaj Gaikwad capitalized on loose deliveries & at the same time rotating the strike on a consistent basis.

In the 9th over, Ruturaj Gaikwad smashed 3 gigantic sixes to the right-arm speedster Alzarri Joseph where his variations proved to be ineffective. Ruturaj Gaikwad was involved in a 51 runs partnership with Ambati Rayudu. It looked as if Ruturaj Gaikwad was toying with the bowlers.

The dismissal of Ambati Rayudu (*121-4 in 12.5 overs) somewhat slowed the run rate as Shivam Dube wasn’t able to time the ball properly.  Skipper Hardik Pandya rotated his bowlers smartly and his short ball technique proved to be quite effective.

Alzarri Joseph was bowling the 18th over and on the very first delivery, Joseph bowled a full toss where Ruturaj Gaikwad couldn’t clear the fence & was dismissed for 92 runs in 50 balls where he struck 4 fours & 9 gigantic sixes. At that time CSK’s score was 151-5 in 17.1 overs. CSK would be aiming to get the score past 190 as the pitch doesn’t have significant demons in it.
