GT vs CSK: David Miller beats Rachin Ravindra with an impressive underarm shot (Watch video)

David Miller Rachin Ravindra

Rachin Ravindra’s hopes of scoring a big goal on his return to the Chennai Super Kings’ playing eleven were dashed by a brilliant shot from David Miller in the ongoing match at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad.

Ravindra had last played for CSK on April 19 when he was dismissed for a duck against Lucknow Super Giants before being called up to the team for the ongoing match against Gujarat Titans. However, New Zealand could only score 1 run in two balls before being dismissed in CSK’s first innings.

On the last ball of the over bowled by Umesh Yadav, Ajinkya Rahane simply defended the ball and bowled a quick single. Ravindra duly complied and left the crease. However, before he could safely return to the box, David Miller attacked from behind, collected the ball and hit the wicket with an underarm shot as he lunged.

Talking about the ongoing game, CSK were reeling at 66 for 3 in the eighth over at the time of writing this report. At one point, they were reduced to 10 for 3 before Daryl Mitchell and Moeen Ali steadied the ship. Both the batsmen are now well set and CSK will be hoping to put them in a good position.

Early in the game, centuries from Shubman Gill and Sai Sudharsan propelled GT to a massive total of 231 for 3 in 20 overs after they were asked to bat first. The duo shared a mammoth stand of 210 runs for the first wicket. Gill scored 104 runs while Sudharsan scored 103.

CSK will be desperate to win the ongoing match to bolster their playoff chances. With six wins and five losses, they are currently in fourth place in the points table. Even if they lose the match, they will have a chance to make the playoffs, but that will complicate the entire qualification scenario. GT, on the other hand, is practically out of the playoff race.
