CSK vs SRH 46th Match IPL 2024 Highlights 4-28-2024

Watch cricket video highlights between Chennai Super Kings vs Sunrisers Hyderabad. Indian Premier League 2024 forty sixth match, played at Chennai.

Call them cautious, but the Chennai Super Kings have shown their strategy effective even if they were unable to hold 210 against the Lucknow Super Giants in their previous home game. Despite batting in wet circumstances, the formidable Sunrisers Hyderabad’s losing run in Chennai—they have never defeated CSK at Chepauk—continued as they were thoroughly defeated. With Ruturaj Gaikwad, the captain, scoring nearly a century and Shivam Dube pushing them over 200, CSK appeared to be playing the same game again. They were the slowest team in the first two overs and the third-slowest in the powerplay. It was their eighth lost toss in nine matches.

But in the second inning, things were different. The combination of heavy dew, Marcus Stoinis’s extraordinary innings, and their own mediocre fielding the other night—events that won’t happen again—must have given CSK the impression that they were finished. That didn’t happen again on Sunday when Tushar Deshpande stunned the SRH with three wickets in the powerplay. Abhishek Sharma and Travis Head both discovered the sweeper on the off side. With the significant victory, CSK moved up to third place in the standings, level with SRH and LSG. Given that SRH has only lost one game when defending and only one while chasing, concerns were raised about their chasing strategies. Their chasing average drops from over 40 to 23, and their run rate drops three runs from their first-inning 11.74.

In the first two overs, the CSK openers only attempted one boundary, but they steadily advanced, mainly because Gaikwad was a skilled gap-finder. CSK managed just 67 runs in the first eight overs, with Gaikwad scoring 44 off 25 with seven fours. The previous match saw CSK go the first ten overs without a six. Here, they took the lead at the beginning of the ninth over when Daryl Mitchell, off-driving a slower ball over mid-off, welcomed Pat Cummins to the bowling crease. Gaikwad repeated the dosage in the same over to get 51 off 27. Up until then, CSK’s other end—including extras—had only scored 31 off 27. But Mitchell now became a part of the group and helped CSK continue while Gaikwad could only muster 10 off the following 10. Mitchell reached fifty off of 29 during that time before holing out to leave CSK at 126 for 3 in 13.3 overs.

Shivam Dube’s outstanding season persisted in spite of SRH’s solid defensive bowling. With four sixes and a four, he finished with 39 off 20. After Mitchell was out, Gaikwad got another wind and quickly took 29 off 10 balls. But by the end he was exhausted and was hitting everything incorrectly. The mishits continued to land safely, decreasing his strike percentage. Jaydev Unadkat bowled the 19th over, which produced no boundaries. Even though Dube finished with a massive six and MS Dhoni emerged for the traditional five off two, it was still unclear if CSK made the correct decision in playing the same way as the previous night.

Travis Head got off to a boundary first ball and a six off the opening ball of the following over, in contrast to CSK. He was matched by Abhishek Sharma, who hit a six of his own. However, Deshpande returned with a slower, wider ball that Head could only hit as far as the off-side sweeper. Anmolpreet Singh, an impact player, was hit by a ball that shaped away and fell with the leading edge. Deshpande had Abhishek caught by the sweeper on the off side once more in his subsequent over. Although Abhishek and Head haven’t exactly dominated without fielding opponents, they will feel a little let down that they both managed to get one of the two guys out.

This is where CSK changed their fortunes as compared to the last match. LSG didn’t let the CSK spinners bowl in the last match, especially with the dew. Here Ravindra Jadeja got into his work. He conceded just one boundary in his four overs, bowled on the trot. He and Mustafizur Rahman managed to find just enough grip from the surface. A frustrated Nitish Reddy top-edged a short ball from Jadeja before Matheesha Pathirana broke the stump camera with a laser-guided middle-stump yorker to Aiden Markram. CSK were right. There wasn’t to be a repeat of a special chase as they closed out efficiently for a 78-run win.
