Brilliant bowling Mitchell Santner and Moeen Ali in particular because Moeen got rid of Kyle Mayers. CSK used the leg-side (big side) of the ground well which shows smart captaincy of MS Dhoni.

The comeback from Tushar Deshpande in particular was very impressive after delviering a very expensive first over. Good 19th over from Rajvardhan Hangargekar which stopped LSG to make further progress in chasing the target.

In chasing 217 runs, it was a really good start by the LSG openers. It was largely Kyle Mayers stamping his name on IPL 2023 in the early stages. He looked in great shape, confidence, and great off-site hitting in particular. Eight fours and two sixes for Kyle Mayers and he made the powerplay looked relatively really easy. However, KL Rahul was slow in scoring runs alongside Mayers.

But when Mayers got dismissed, CSK’s spinners started to take over. Later on, Kurnal Pandya and Marcus Stoinis struck a good one. But that middle order was not able to flourish because of smart choice of bowlers. In the end, they fell short of 12 runs and lost the match to CSK after a thrilling encounter.
