In form, Shubman Gill started the chase alongside the experienced Wriddhiman Saha. Chennai Super Kings bowled tightly right from the start. It worked in favour of them as Chahar got rid of Wriddhiman Saha in the third over. Gill managed to control the situation but Gujarat were only able to score 41 runs in the powerplay after losing two wickets. Theekshana and Jadeja gave no space to the batters for playing big shots.

They continued bowling wicket to wicket which resulted properly. Theekshana got the massive wicket of skipper Hardik Pandya in the last over of the powerplay and Gujarat fell under pressure. Shanaka and Gill tried to construct a partnership but it was so sluggish. They couldn’t time the ball properly and the credit should go to Dhoni for bringing the spinners at the right time. Shanaka tried to shift the momentum but Jadeja dismissed him in the 11th over.

Rashid Khan played an effective cameo of 30 runs in the end but it was too good to be true for them. Chennai doesn’t make mistakes repetitively. Tushar Deshpande gave away runs foolishly but Dhoni managed to use him properly somehow. Jadeja was the best among the bowlers. He only conceded 18 runs and also picked two crucial wickets. Chahar’s comeback has been excellent for the team as he has now picked 12 wickets in 5 matches after coming back from the injury. Chennai Super Kings won the match by 15 runs and booked their tickets for the Final in Ahmedabad.
