IPL 2024 Points Table: Updated After CSK vs GT Match 7

The Chennai Super Kings continued their winning ways in IPL 2024, dismantling the Gujarat Titans by a commanding 63 runs at the MA Chidambaram Stadium. This comprehensive victory not only extends their perfect start to the season but also propels them to the pinnacle of the IPL points table.

Ravindra’s Explosiveness Sets the Tone

CSK, batting first after winning the toss, got off to a flying start courtesy of a scintillating opening partnership between Rachin Ravindra and Ruturaj Gaikwad. The left-handed Ravindra, in particular, was in sublime touch, scoring a quickfire 46 off just 20 balls. His knock, laced with six boundaries and three sixes, took full advantage of the quick Chepauk outfield, a factor he himself highlighted earlier in the season.

While both openers fell before the end of the powerplay, a crucial knock from Shivam Dube (51 off 23 balls) ensured CSK continued to pile on the runs. Cameos from Daryl Mitchell and Sameer Rizvi further propelled their total to a daunting 206 for 6 wickets, a score that proved far too much for the Titans to chase down.

Gujarat’s Chase Falters Early

Gujarat’s chase never truly got going. The early dismissal of their star opener Shubman Gill left them on the back foot, and they were never able to recover. While Sai Sudharsan showed some promise with a 37-run knock, he lacked the support from the other end. David Miller, considered a dangerman, was dismissed by a sharp catch, effectively putting the final nail in Gujarat’s coffin.

The CSK bowling attack, spearheaded by the pace duo of Deepak Chahar (2/28) and Tushar Deshpande (2/21), proved too potent for the Titans batsmen. Interestingly, the much-anticipated spin attack of CSK remained wicketless on their home turf, with the fast bowlers taking centre stage. This shift in bowling dominance highlights the evolving nature of the Chepauk pitch, traditionally known to favour spinners.

CSK’s Dominance Reflected in Points Table

This emphatic victory by CSK has significant implications for the IPL 2024 points table. Having won both their matches so far, CSK boasts a healthy net run rate of +1.979, putting them comfortably ahead of the Rajasthan Royals in second place. The Gujarat Titans, on the other hand, have tumbled down to sixth position after this heavy defeat. Notably, Kolkata Knight Riders, who have played only one match, have climbed to third place in the table.

With their top spot secured, CSK will look to maintain their winning momentum in the upcoming matches. Their next opponent and the challenges they face will determine if they can sustain their dominance in the IPL 2024 season.
