The Chennai Super Kings (CSK) is a franchise cricket team that plays in the Indian Premier League (IPL). In the 13 seasons of the IPL, the CSK team has been one of the most successful, reaching the playoffs in all but two seasons. However, like any team, they have also had their share of struggles and have scored some low totals in their IPL history.
CSK have started against Mumbai Indians (MI) with a very bad start and are lying on the brink of collapse and are at 56/7 after 11 overs. In their first test against the Yellow Army, the Yellow Army had a disastrous start as they lost their opener, Ruturaj Gaikwad, right on the fifth delivery of the match.
Jasprit Bumrah troubled Ambati Rayudu with his pace in the second over before sending him back with his fourth delivery on the fourth ball. Narayan Jagadeesan followed his senior mate right on to the next ball he played in his second game of the season. Having saved himself from a bouncer by coming out to face the hat-trick ball, MS Dhoni faced the hat-trick ball.
In the third over of the innings, CSK lost the wicket of Faf du Plessis. There was no escaping the fact that despite Rajindra Jadeja and MS Dhoni’s efforts, they were unable to restructure CSK’s innings. Trent Boult dismissed Ravindra Jadeja, while MS Dhoni edged a ball to Quinton de Kock off Rahul Chahar.
There is no doubt that the three-time champions are in deep trouble, as they are so close to becoming the lowest-scoring team in the history of the IPL. Taking a look at CSK’s lowest IPL totals Score before the end of the innings, here are their lowest scores in IPL history:
CSK Lowest Score 79/10 vs Mumbai Indians (2013)
However, like any team, CSK has also had its share of struggles and has scored some low totals in its IPL history. The lowest total scored by CSK in the IPL is 79 all out against the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in the 2012 season. This was a match played at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata on April 7, 2012.
In this match, CSK won the toss and decided to bat first. However, the team struggled from the outset and lost wickets at regular intervals. Suresh Raina was the top scorer for CSK with 35 runs off 27 balls, but no other batsman was able to make a significant contribution. The team was eventually bowled out for just 79 runs in 17.3 overs.
The KKR team chased down the target with ease, reaching the target in just 11.4 overs with eight wickets in hand. KKR’s Yusuf Pathan was the top scorer in the match with an unbeaten 45 runs off 26 balls.
This was a disappointing result for CSK, which had high hopes for the 2012 season. However, the team regrouped and went on to make it to the playoffs, where they lost to the eventual champions, the Kolkata Knight Riders, in the eliminator match.
CSK Lowest Score vs Rajasthan Royals (109/10 – 2008)
When the CSK team faced Rajasthan Royals in their 24th match of the season during the 2008 season, CSK was dismissed for 109 runs. It is still remembered for the way Sohail Tanvir came up with figures of 4-0-14-6 in that match.
CSK vs Mumbai Indians (109/10 – 2019)
With a target of 156 to chase in IPL 2019, CSK lost by a margin of 46 runs. Bumrah took the wickets of Murali Vijay and Deepak Chahar, while Lasith Malinga had four wickets for his side.
CSK vs Delhi Daredevils ( 110/8 – 2012)
The CSK team played 20 overs against Delhi Daredevils in the fifth season of IPL, but managed to score only 110 runs. In the second Qualifier later in the tournament, they defeated Delhi in a convincing fashion.
CSK vs Royal Challengers Bangalore (112/8 – 2008)
Despite playing full 20 overs and chasing a target of 127, CSK failed to achieve the target by 14 runs and only managed to score 112/8 despite playing the entire 20 overs.
CSK vs Delhi Daredevils (112/9 – 2010)
Despite being the winner of IPL 2010, CSK had a difficult time that year. It is a little bit ironic that CSK also registered a low score of 112/9 during the season despite having played 20 overs. The team lost by six wickets in the tie.
It is worth noting that these low scores are relatively rare for the CSK team, which has generally performed well in the IPL. Despite these occasional setbacks, the team has consistently made it to the playoffs and has won the IPL title three times.
