Watch: Ajinkya Rahane takes a shout to eliminate David Miller in IPL 2024

Ajinkya Rahane takes screamer to dismiss David Miller

Chennai Super Kings (CSK) batsman Ajinkya Rahane put up a heroic effort on the field during the ongoing game against Gujarat Titans (GT). The seventh game of Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 will be held at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai.

The game between Chennai Super Kings and Gujarat Titans is balanced so far as both teams are trying their best to win the game. The home team, with the support of the fans, ensures that they continue to take wickets at regular intervals and entertain the crowd.

David Miller and Sai Sudharsan, on the other hand, for GT, made sure to deepen the game and keep the team in the hunt. With the way they were batting, it took something special to break their partnership and Ajinkya Rahane did exactly that on the field to remove the South African batsman.

During the fifth ball of the 12th over, Tushar Deshpande bowled a full delivery on leg stump. David Miller lofted the ball in the air towards the middle of the wicket. Ajinkya Rahane, who was posted there, ran in, made a sensational leap and got the catch.

Here is the video:

David Miller looked in good contact in the game as he hit some big shots and looked ready for a big hit. He scored 21 runs off 16 balls. The southpaw had a strike rate of over 131 and also scored three boundaries in his innings.

David Miller’s wicket in the game put the Gujarat Titans on the back foot in the ongoing game against Chennai Super Kings. The home team made it difficult to score runs for the Shubman Gill-led team and now look favorites to win the game.

After David Miller exited, Gujarat Titans also lost Sai Sudharsan. The southpaw was dismissed by Matheesha Pathirana as he tried to hit it for a six and was caught in the deep by Sameer Rizvi. The batsman scored 37 runs off 31 balls.

With their wicket, Chennai Super Kings reduced Gujarat Titans to 114/5. The batting side would expect Rahul Tewatia to give his best with the bat and take it home along with Rashid Khan, who has made useful contributions with the bat in T20 of late.

Ajinkya Rahane fails to shine with the bat in the game against Gujarat Titans

While he made his presence felt on the field, Ajinkya Rahane could not set the stage on fire with the bat in the ongoing game against the Gujarat Titans. The batsman, who has been in excellent form of late, is yet to make a big impact with the bat in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024.

In the ongoing game, Ajinkya Rahane scored only 12 runs. The batsman faced 12 balls and failed to hit a single boundary. He could not take advantage of the good batting conditions and is now hoping to turn things around in the upcoming games of the season for the Chennai Super Kings (CSK).
