“Does mean a lot to be back here. IPL started in 2008 but we’ve not played a lot of cricket here. Only about 5-6 seasons we’ve been here. This is the first time the full stadium will be operational, a few stands were empty earlier. Really glad that we get to play all our home games here at Chepauk, means a lot. Same squad for this game. Need to keep assessing our situation and keep revisiting our targets, keep a realistic goal in mind and take it from there,” Dhoni said at the toss.
For LSG, Ravi Bishnoi was the pick of the bowlers as mentioned above, while Mark Wood picked three wickets but went in excess of 12 runs per over. Krunal Pandya did get a wicket in his 100th IPL game but was expensive as the rest of the bowlers.
Bishnoi bowled a terrific spell after the opening partnership and wreaked havoc in the middle order of CSK. Despite getting hit for a couple of sixes by Shivam Dube (27 off 16), Bishnoi had the last laugh. Later he finished with brilliant figures of 4-0-28-3 as he also scalped Moeen Ali (19 off 13), who was looking good in his short stay at the crease.
