One sensational chase from Lucknow Super Giants on Thursday in Mumbai. A target of 200+ runs wasn't enough to scare the newbies. Asked to bat by LSG captain KL Rahul, defending Indian Premier League (IPL) champions, Chennai Super Kings scored 210 runs thanks to the onslaught from Robin Uthappa (50 off 27), Shivam Dube (49 off 30) and Moeen Ali (35 off 22). But what followed was even more brutal.

A target of 211 runs proved too little as Evin Lewis hit the season's fastest fifty (55) off 23 balls, which was felicitated by a 25-run penultimate over from Dube. But the foundation for the chase was laid by skipper Rahul (40 off 26) and Quinton de Kock (61 off 45), who stitched an opening stand of 99 runs in just 62 balls. Chennai did manage to slow things down with quick wickets in the middle overs, including a record-breaking one by Dwayne Bravo. But Ayush Badoni once again showed his class and temperament to finish off the chase. He remains not out on 19 off nine balls. Meaning, Ravindra Jadeja's captaincy reign at CSK will have to wait for its first win a little longer. CSK next play Punjab Kings on Sunday (April 3) at Brabourne Stadium while LSG face Sunrisers Hyderabad on Monday Dr at DY Patil Stadium, Mumbai. Catch highlights of IPL 2022, CSK LSG.
