The IPL record for utmost sixes in innings ( 21), which was set on this day in 2013, was in peril of being broken for a while. Ajinkya Rahane, Shivam Dube, and Devon Conway’s swashbuckling runs helped Chennai Super Lords set a record first-innings score at Eden Auditoriums, but they fell just three short of that aggregate.
In the first three overs, Kolkata Knight Riders dropped two lattices and only used get-up-to-speed for a significant portion of their pursuit. They ultimately fell short and suffered their fourth defeat in a row. This meant that MS Dhoni’s platoon is now at the top of the leaderboard with five triumphs in seven matches. They’re two triumphs ahead of a logjam that has five brigades on eight points each and five triumphs.
Rahane and Dube led the six-megahit spree, with Rahane hitting five of them in a 29-ball 71 to propel Super Lords through the middle order.
The following are the original figures from their cooperation 32 balls, 85 runs, four fours, and eight sixes This came after Conway played another great inning, scoring a fourth successive To prepare for the match against Ruturaj Gaikwad, a century was scored.
Their 73-run opening cover simply 7.3 overs was one further fine display of timing, power, wrist work, and a lot of muscle. When KKR’s bowlers noticed that there was no important swing, they went with length into the pitch up front. Conway was excellent at selecting lengths and hitting them square on both sides, so this did not work.
In Suyash Sharma’s first over, all of the rudiments that make for compelling viewing when a legspinner is on were in play, including flight, rip, and a turn to beat the inside edge. Gaikwad was taken suddenly. still, the help was incontinently balanced with Conway skirting down to shoot off Sunil Narine for a huge six down the ground.
In the 11th over, the 100 was over, and CSK appeared auspicious. Conway eventually passed down because he was unfit to fully remove Varun Chakravarthy’s elevation, but Dube got in the act with two huge successes in the same over. When Varun tried a carrom ball into the pitch, the first of these was a 100-cadence megahit to deep midwicket. Varun was also torn to the ground above the sight screen when he went full.
Rahane played a stunning pick-up shot in the coming over, the 14th, using Umesh Yadav’s pace and letting his wrists take over, making it three sixes in a row for CSK. Without any limitations that might have held him back in former seasons, it was spontaneous, top-notch fur. He sounded to benefit from the clarity of his part. He was no longer an anchor; rather, he was unleashing his icon as a destroyer.
The over would yield a sixth, which would be launched over fine leg, and one of the most beautiful redundant cover drives you would ever see with bases to the pitch, leaning into the stroke, and lacing the ball through the off side — would be the result.
That was the morning of a fascinating section as Rahane and Dube, another batter who appears to be in a position to play the game he has long hovered to, had fun and made the bowling attack appear sluggish. Rahane struck 24 for his fifty, while Dube hit 20. The last five overs went for 75 as KKR went into the break and voided part.
In the opening over of the chase, Narine performed an off-refuse cartwheel, and in the alternate, N Jagadeesan has dismissed thanks to Ravindra Jadeja’s dexterity. also, Moeen Ali and Jadeja hit in back-to-back overs after important swings from Venkatesh Iyer and Nitish Rana. Rana dragged a slog reach to Gaikwad at deep midwicket, and Venkatesh was out leg before gate after sweeping a full ball.
At this moment, Jason Roy entered the game and did not waste any time getting going, going 6, 6, 6 off his alternate, third, and fourth balls all off Moeen. When Moeen shot one full in an attempt to amend his line after the first two hard slogs to the leg side, he was rear-swept behind point. In the desire to mow the ball down, Roy struck more frequently than he missed, soaring to a half-century in just 19 balls. The equation had reached 109 off 36 at that point.
Roy persisted in striking out. still, Mahesh Theekshana was out off the third ball to a full delivery that dipped and slipped underneath his strong swing after taking him for two fours to start the 15th over. The palm chance for KKR was lower than 1 indeed after all that witchery.
You could tell the game was gone when Matheeshan Pathirana, a teammate of Theekshana’s from Sri Lanka, transferred back Andre Russell two overs latterly. And so it turned out, despite everything Rinku Singh fulfilled on the other end to achieve his half-century.

Conway played another great inning, scoring his fourth successive century in preparation for the match against Ruturaj Gaikwad. Their 73-run opening partnership in just 7.3 overs was a fine display of timing, power, wrist work, and muscle. KKR’s bowlers tried to counter by bowling with length into the pitch up front, but Conway was excellent at selecting lengths and hitting them square on both sides.
Suyash Sharma’s leg-spin bowling caused some initial trouble for CSK, taking Gaikwad’s wicket in his first over. However, Conway hit a huge six off Sunil Narine in the next over to balance things out. Dube also got in the act with two massive sixes off Varun Chakravarthy in the 11th over, including a 100-cadence megahit to deep midwicket. Rahane played a stunning pick-up shot in the 14th over, using Umesh Yadav’s pace and letting his wrists take over, making it three sixes in a row for CSK. The last five overs went for 75 runs, as Rahane and Dube had fun and made the bowling attack appear sluggish.

Moeen Ali and Jadeja then took important wickets, including Nitish Rana and Venkatesh Iyer. However, Jason Roy entered the game and hit sixes off his alternate, third, and fourth balls, all off Moeen. He went on to score a half-century in just 19 balls, bringing the equation to 109 off 36. Despite the efforts of Rinku Singh to achieve his half-century, KKR ultimately fell short and suffered their fourth defeat in a row.
