    IPL 2023: Who is CSK's debutant Rajvardhan Hangargekar? Here's all you need to know

  • 9:57 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik

    CSK call impact player

    And CSK have called the first impact player of the tournament. Tushar Desphande comes in for Ambati Rayudu.

  • 9:55 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik

    Chase underway

    And the chase is underway at the Narendra Modi Stadium. Gill and Saha are in the middle as they look for a good start.

  • 9:36 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik

    Chennai finish at 178

    So, Chennai get 178 in their 20 overs as Ruturaj Gaikwad powered this inning largely. Chennai were dominant till he was there. CSK lost a few early wickets, but Gaikwad continued his carnage. He fell agonisingly short of 100 as he went back for 92 in the 18th over. After that, Dhoni came and hit a couple of boundaries to take them past 170. Good show by CSK but they could have got more. GT applied breaks on CSK's batting in middle overs with Rashid taking two. Joseph picked two as well. CSK were at 121/4 after 13 overs. Dube and Jadeja could not get going as well. So, GT require 179 to begin their title defence with a win.

  • 9:26 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik

    Chennai lose way

    Chennai have lost a bit more wickets than they would have liked. After Gaikwad, Jadeja and Dube have departed. Dhoni is still out there. Can he help his team finish well?

  • 9:16 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik

    Gaikwad falls short of hundred

    Ahh! he has agonisingly fallen short of a well-deserving hundred. This was a high full toss as he could not time it well enough to long on. Gill came running in from the fence to grab a good diving catch. Ohh, no Jadeja falls on his second ball. Chennai are losing a little more now. Dhoni now comes in at 8.

  • 9:02 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik

    CSK set for huge score

    CSK are set for a huge score now as Gaikwad is still in the middle. The flow of runs has lowered a bit in the previous overs but they can pick the pace up in the final overs. CSK 133/4 after 15 overs. They should eye something around 185.

  • 8:51 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik

    Rayudu castled by Little

    The Irish man Joshua Little has his first in IPL. He has cleaned Ambati Rayudu on this off-cutter. Pitched on Good length, Rayudu danced down the track to slog it over long-on. But is beaten well on the outside edge as the ball breaks the stumps. CSK 4 down for 120.

  • 8:45 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik

    Williamson makes giant effort on boundary

    Williamson has done brilliant work at the deep mid-wicket but has hurt himself badly. He has saved a six as he jumped to keep the ball inside. It's a four but Williamson looks in serious pain.

  • 8:36 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik

    CSK are past 100

    Gaikwad are smacking them far and handsome on the leg side. That is his strength and the GT bowlers are bearing the brunt of it. CSK are past 100 inside 11 overs. Gaikwad is setting a wonderful base.

  • 8:28 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik

    Gaikwad's brings brilliant fifty

    My God, what a fifty-knock this is by Ruturaj Gaikwad. Full of class, timing, and eye-pleasing hitting. Even though, wickets fell, he is keeping the run rate around 10. Brilliant stuff. I can smell a big knock here. CSK have made 93/2 in 10 overs. This is going to be a hard grind for GT bowlers.

  • 8:21 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik

    Rashid gets big fish Stokes

    And Rashid has now got Ben Stokes early. What brilliant bowling this is. He was hit for a four on the previous fuller ball. But he pulled his length back and bowled a straighter one, which stayed a bit low too. Stokes wanted to play it to covers but get a nick as Saha takes another good catch.

  • 8:06 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik

    Rashid gets Moeen, CSK 51/2 after 6

    And Rashid has finally got his man. After surviving two LBW shouts (one of them was given out but saved on review) Rashid has got Moeen. But this time, there is a big edge as he tries to go over extra cover. Saha takes a fine catch behind the stumps. Chennai end the powerplay at 51/2. Joy and pain for both sides in the powerplay. While GT got Conway early, Moeen, and Ruturaj took the bowlers. Rashid appealed for LBW two times, and got hit to a boundary but got Moeen in the 6th over. Ben Stokes comes in.

  • 7:58 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik

    Moeen, Ruturaj go behind GT bowlers

    And even after losing Conway early, Moeen Ali and Devon Conway are playing their shots. They are steading the ship as Chennai are in no time about to reach 50. 15 from 4th over, 17 from 5th. Good fightback this is.

  • 7:47 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik

    Shami castles Conway

    And there's the first. Shami cleans up Devon Conway in his second over. What a ball. Perfect seam position on a good length, angling in as it dodged Conway's bat. The ball shatters the stumps as Chennai lose their first. He has got his 100th victim in the league.

  • 7:35 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik

    Action begins in IPL 16

    The action has begun in the tournament as Devon Conway and Ruturaj Gaikwad are out in the middle. Shami and Hardik bowl the first two overs. Tight over from the former as only 2 runs came from that but Pandya has gone for 2 fours.

  • 7:27 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik

    Substitutes of both teams

    CSK's 4 substitutes:

    Tushar Deshpande, Subranshu Senapati, Shaik Rasheed, Ajinkya Rahane, and Nishant Sandhu are the four substitutes announced by CSK.

  • 7:23 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik

    Dhoni at toss

    We were also looking to field first. Looks a good wicket and I don't think it will change much. Don't know if there will be dew because it rained yesterday. You want to play in front of people. This stadium is twice the capacity of other venues. Fantastic atmosphere. Our Preparation was good. We assembled quite early. (On impact player) It's a luxury to have. It becomes slightly easy to take the decision because you can use it at any time. Influence of allrounder has become slightly due to this rule.

  • 7:20 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik

    CSK's Playing XI

    Devon Conway, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Moeen Ali, Ben Stokes, Ravindra Jadeja, Shivam Dube, Ambati Rayudu, MS Dhoni (capt&wk), Mitch Santner, Deepak Chahar, Rajvardhan Hangargekar

  • 7:19 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik

    Hardik Pandya at toss

    We will be bowling first. It's always good to play at this venue. New start, new season, we are quite excited. Almost everyone in the country has got motivation from him (Dhoni). Been a fan and admirer of him. Want boys to enjoy it. Result will take care of itself. (On impact player rule) It's different - I've left it in the coach. Ashu pa (Ashish Nehra) works all night on what needs to be done. I don't know on my team combination. 

  • 7:16 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik

  • 5:35 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik

    Match Prediction

    The match is likely to be a tough contested one with no team in the mood to give any ground. Super Kings have star all-rounders like Ben Stokes, Ravindra Jadeja and Moeen Ali. They also have the likes of Ruturaj, Devon Conway, Ambati, MS Dhoni and Deepak Chahar. Meanwhile, the Giants also have a strong set-up with the likes of Pandya, Shubman, Wade, Williamson, and Rashid in the squad. This could go anywhere but few believe CSK have an upper hand.

  • 5:12 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik

    Less than an hour left

    We are less than an hour away from the opening ceremony of the IPL 2023. The ceremony will witness the likes of Arijit Singh, Tamannaah Bhatia and Rashmika Mandana and will start at 6 PM IST. Get ready for some eye catching performances by these stars.
