CSK Climbs to 3rd in IPL 2024 Table After Defeating SRH

Chennai defeated Hyderabad by 78 runs because of Ruturaj Gaikwad’s 98 off 54 and Tushar Deshpande’s four wicket haul. This raised Chennai’s net run rate.

After beating Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) by 78 runs at Chepauk Stadium, Chennai Super Kings (CSK) saw a major rise in their net run rate. In the 2024 Indian Premier League (IPL), it is SRH’s second straight loss. Since both of those games were comprehensive losses, their net run rate has suffered greatly.

As CSK scored 212/3 batting first, captain Ruturaj Gaikwad hit 98 in just 54 balls and Daryl Mitchell, after struggling for a time, looked to be improving with a 32-ball 52. After losing Travis Head, Anmolpreet Singh, and Abhishek Sharma for pitiful runs in the opening four overs of the powerplay, SRH suffered a serious blow. Deshpande took all three wickets.

While Aiden Markram (32) and Nitish Reddy (15) tried to steady the ship, Ravindra Jadeja tricked the former with a bouncer, while Matheesha Pathirana produced a brilliant yorker to uproot the South African’s middle stump. Heinrich Klaasen and Abdul Samad combined at 85-5 in 10.5 overs, but runs were hard to come by as the bowlers executed their strategies flawlessly.

After the powerplay, CSK conceded just two boundaries in nine overs as Shardul Thakur continued to bowl at wide outside off to confuse the batsmen, while Jadeja finished an outstanding period of 4-0-22-1. Mitchell took five catches in the outfield during the match, while Klaasen, Samad, Pat Cummins, and Shahbaz Ahmed all holed out with an unlikely 104 needed from 30 balls.

The victory’s comprehensive nature can have a long-term impact on the league standings. CSK is now in third place after being the fifth team to score ten points. However, due to their net run rate of 0.810, they are currently ahead of SRH, LSG, and DC. On the other hand, SRH experiences a drop in their net run rate to 0.075. SRH had lost their previous match to RCB by 35 runs.

In the 45th match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 at the Narendra Modi Stadium, Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) defeated Gujarat Titans (GT) by nine wickets with four overs remaining on Sunday because of to a blistering 41-ball century by Will Jacks and an undefeated 70 runs by Virat Kohli. Even though RCB has won two straight games, with six points from ten games, they are still at the bottom of the table. With eight points from ten games, GT, meanwhile, is still in seventh place. They have the lowest net run rate in the league, with -1.113.
