IPL 2023 CSK vs RCB: CSK Smash Their 3rd Highest Total In IPL History – During the ongoing 24th match of IPL 2023, the Chennai Super Kings set another record, registering their third-highest total in the history of the IPL, during their dominant first-inning performance against the Royal Challengers Bangalore.
After being invited to bat first by Faf Du Plessis, Chennai Super Kings had a rough start as they lost Ruturaj Gaikwad early during the power play. However, the pair of Devon Conway and Ajinkya Rahane provided the Chennai Super Kings with a perfect platform, putting together a 74-run partnership in just 34 deliveries to pull their team out of a difficult situation.
Wanindu Hasaranga provided Royal Challengers Bangalore with a much-needed breakthrough, but that did not slow down the Chennai Super Kings. Devon Conway once again found a partner in Shivam Dubey, and together the duo put together a swashbuckling 80-run partnership for the 3rd wicket in just 38 deliveries, propelling CSK to a total of 170 in just 16 overs.
After Shivam Dubey’s dismissal, Bangalore had the opportunity to restrict Chennai Super Kings to a score of under 200-210 as two new batters made their way to the crease.
Chennai Super Kings managed to amass a huge total of 226 runs for the loss of 6 wickets in their allotted 20 overs, thanks to the contributions from Moeen Ali, Ambati Rayudu, and Ravindra Jadeja. With this mammoth total, they surpassed their own 10-year-old record of the third-highest total in the history of the Indian Premier League.
