Chennai Super Kings beat Gujarat Titans in IPL Final 2023
Gujarat Titans started their innings well with 67 Runs opening partnership in IPL final as few chances were dropped by CSK. Shubman Gill’s catch was dropped by Deepak Chahar when he had scored only 3 runs. By scoring 96 runs off just 47 balls, Sai Sudharsan helped Gujarat Titans reach a score of 214/4. The 23-year-old Chennai native made the most of the final few overs by slamming eight fours and six sixes in his innings. Wriddhiman Saha had earlier scored 54 off 39 on a day when his talented opening partner Shubman Gill was only able to score 39 off 20. Jadeja took Shubman’s wicket with the help of Dhoni’s lightning-fast stumping.
During the reserve day, there were only a few light drizzles, which were insufficiently far away to stop the game in any way. This contrasts sharply with what occurred on Sunday when relentless rain forced the final to be moved to the reserve day.
