Chasing Super Kings' target of 177 runs, Super Giants won by scoring 180 runs for two wickets with six balls remaining. Captain Lokesh Rahul scored 82 runs while Quinton de Kock scored 54 runs. Both added 134 runs for the first wicket. Earlier, apart from scoring a half-century, Ravindra Jadeja (57 not out in 40 balls, five fours, one six) made a partnership of 51 runs for the sixth wicket with Moeen Ali (30 runs in 20 balls, three sixes), due to which the Super Kings took six wickets. Scored 176 runs on the wicket.

Gaikwad said after the match, “We finished (the innings) very well, nothing more could have been expected.” But after the powerplay, we could not score runs fast till the 14th-15th over. We lost wickets continuously and scored 10-15 runs less. Batting is a bit difficult but with the impact player rule you get an extra batsman. Later, with dew coming, it seemed that 180-190 runs could have been a good score.

Chennai is at third place in the points table
This was the third defeat of Chennai Super Kings team in 7 matches. This team, which has won 4 matches so far, has maintained its place in the top three in the points table.
