Rahul had won the toss and said that the home side will be bowling first. LSG kept CSK's batters down for much of the innings but a late flourish powered once again by MS Dhoni helped the defending champions go past the 170-run mark. Dhoni stayed unbeaten on 28 runs in just nine deliveries and took CSK to a score of 176/6. Ravindra Jadeja was at the other end on 57 off 40.

LSG vs CSK 34th Match

CSK stuck to their new opening pair of Ajinkya Rahane and Rachin Ravindra. However, Ravindra's woes continued as he fell for a golden duck in the second over. LSG hardly ever allowed CSK to get any kind of partnership going with Ajinkya Rahane's 36 off 24 and Moeen Ali's 30 off 20 being CSK's best scores outside of what Jadeja could do. CSK were 141 for 6 when Dhoni came out to bat with 13 balls remaining. He knew CSK needed quick runs and went on a rampage. He smashed three fours and two sixes, scoring 28 runs at a strike rate of 311.

KL Rahul and Quinton De Kock shared an opening partnership of over 100 runs to take their team home against the mighty Chennai Super Kings. KL Rahul scored 82 of 53 balls while his opening partner De Kock got out at 54 runs. They have successfully chased 177 runs as target set by the CSK with 8 wickets in hand.
