IPL 2023: Ruturaj Gaikwad, Devon Conway propel Chennai Super Kings to 172 runs

Chennai Super Kings (CSK) set a target of 173 runs for Gujarat Titans (GT) during the Qualifier 1 of the TATA IPL 2023 on Tuesday. Ruturaj Gaikwad and Devon Conway gave a stable start to the team and set the foundations for a good score. GT bowlers struggled against the responsible openers but grabbed some wickets and restricted CSK to an achievable score.

Ruturaj Gaikwad and Devon Conway have been one of the most successful opening combinations in this season of the IPL 2023 and tonight cricket fans again saw that as the 87 runs opening partnership gave a good start to the team.

Mohammad Shami started the bowling attack for GT with Darshan Nalkande, but couldn’t provide the best start for their franchise. The batters knew who they had to target and were playing very carefully against dangerous bowlers like Mohammad Shami and Rashid Khan.

Mohit Sharma gave the first breakthrough to the GT as he dismissed Ruturaj Gaikwad (60) and then Noor Ahmad took out Shivam Dube (1) in the next over. The two wickets slowed down the innings of CSK and soon Ajinkya Rahane (17) and Devon Conway (40) also walked back to the pavilion.

GT bowlers were looking in complete control now and Ravindra Jadeja and Ambati Rayudu were playing very cautiously. Rashid Khan was slowly intensifying his pressure on the batters and after smashing a beautiful six, Ambati Rayudu (17) was dismissed.

Amid a cheering crowd, CSK skipper MS Dhoni (1) entered the ground but was soon dismissed by Mohit Sharma. Ravindra Jadeja (22) and Moeen Ali (9*) couldn’t do much during the last over.

At the end of the first innings, CSK was at 172/7
