IPL 2024: CSK defeats RCB in the season opener thanks to Ravindra Jadeja and Shivam Dube

<p>Indian Premier League 2024: In the first game of the season, CSK defeated Royal Challengers Bangalore by a stunning six-wicket margin, marking the start of a new era for the team under Ruturaj Gaikwad. The young Indian batsman took over as captain of the joint-most successful club in league history after MS Dhoni announced his retirement, and he has taken the reins well, as the Maharashtrian opener has SOME shoes to fill.</p>

<p>At their stronghold, MA Chidambaram Stadium, often known as Chepaux, Chennai Super Kings welcomed Royal Challengers Banglore for the season opener as the reigning champions were starting a new chapter in their history. RCB won the toss and chose to bat first. They got off to a strong start, scoring 33 runs in the first three overs. However, a certain “Fizz” unsettled their middle and upper order as Bangladeshi left-arm pacer Mustafizur Rahman tore through the RCB batting order, taking four wickets and amassing 4/29 in his four overs.</p>
<p>Anuj Rawat and Dinesh Karthik had other ideas, as the pair managed to record a partnership of 95 off 50 balls for the sixth wicket and managed to put up a total of 173, while the rest of the RCB team was reeling at 78/5 in 12 overs and facing a total of less than 140.</p>
<p>In response, the RCB bowlers got off to a terrible start as all-rounder Rachin Ravindra, a Kiwi, went on a rampage in his IPL debut, smashing a quickfire 37 off 15 balls, giving the CSK side a significant advantage in their pursuit of 174. Ajinkya Rahane and Daryl Mitchell’s removal by new signing Cameron Green did provide some optimism for a comeback, but an outstanding six-wicket victory against RCB was led by Ravindra Jadeja and Shivam Dube, who shared an unbroken combination of 66 off 37 for the fifth wicket.</p>
