Chennai Super Kings (CSK) advanced to their tenth final after defeating Gujarat Titans (GT) in Qualifier 1 of the 16th Indian Premier League. CSK performed admirably at home in every manner. Under the conditions, both their hitters and bowlers performed admirably. GT requested that CSK bat first. CSK scored 172 for 7 in 20 overs, led by a 60-run knock by a teenage player named Ruturaj Gaikwad. One of the key reasons CSK scored well in Chepauk was that they struck seven fours and one six. His opening partner, Devon Conway, struck 40 off 34 balls to help CSK get off to a fantastic start with the bat. CSK’s middle order crumbled, but the bowlers did an excellent job of keeping the club in the game.
CSK had five bowlers, each taking at least one wicket. Four of them finished with two wickets each. Ravindra Jadeja was the most effective bowler, taking two wickets and scoring 18 runs in four overs. CSK maintained their unblemished record against GT. GT has never been able to defeat CSK in four matches. Simultaneously, Jio Cinema, the official digital show partner, achieved a new global record.
Jio Cinema has achieved a new world record:
JioCinema had 2.5 crore viewers at the same time during Qualifier 1. The live-streaming platform not only smashed its own record for the third time this season, but it also tied the world record set when India faced New Zealand in the ICC 2019 World Cup semi-finals. Previously, on April 17, 2.4 crore fans packed the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium to watch MS Dhoni’s Chennai Super Kings defend against Royal Challengers Bangalore’s high-octane run chase. This record was set when they surpassed the one they set on April 12 with a peak frequency of 2.2 crore, which occurred once again when Dhoni demonstrated how entertaining endings could be against the Rajasthan Royals.
