CSK vs LSG IPL 2023 Highlights: MS Dhoni's two late sixes turned out to be crucial for Chennai

CSK vs LSG IPL 2023 Highlights: Lucknow Super Giants were off to a flier thanks to a 21-ball half century from Kyle Mayers in the powerplay while chasing a massive target of 218. However, three wickets in quick succession have brought the home side right back in it. LSG's chase picked up pace once again with Nicholas Pooran but CSK kept chipping away and now stand at the cusp of victory despite the plethora of wide and no balls their bowlers ended up sending in. Earlier, CSK slowed down after the 10th over and yet they smashed a massive 217/7 in their 20 overs. MS Dhoni came out and bashed two back to back sixes much to the delight of the CSK fans in what was their first match at the Chepauk since 2019. KL Rahul had won the toss and chosen to bowl first after which the visitors were off to a sloppy start with the ball. CSK took full advantage of it with Ruturaj Gaikwad leading the way. The 26-year-old and opening partner Devon Conway smashed 79 runs in the powerplay, which is the most for CSK at the Chepauk in the history of the IPL. He eventually fell for 57 off 31 balls while Conway was on 47 off 29 when the Kiwi lost his wicket. CSK went through a bit of a downturn in their scoring rate after that with Shivam Mavi and Moeen Ali struggling to get going. But the pair ended up nailing their attempted big shots before being dismissed. The rest of the players played similar cameos with Rayudu smashing an unbeaten 27 off 14 most notably before Dhoni smacked two sixes off two of the three balls he faced to cross 5000 IPL runs. ...Read More

CSK vs LSG Live Score IPL 2023: CSK beat LGS by 12 runs

Mark Wood smashes a four and a six off the last two balls of the match. That takes LSG over the 200-run mark but it is not enough. CSK have won their first match back at the Chepauk and they have won it by just 12 runs despite scoring 217. More food for thought when you consider the fact that MS Dhoni had hit two back to back sixes before being dismissed in the last over. Three balls faced, two of which were sixes, and his team won by 12 runs. What a return this is for CSK and Dhoni to their beloved Chepauk Stadium and home fans.

CSK vs LSG Live Score: Dhoni calls it and takes it!

Badoni goes for the big shot, he had to of course, he skies it high into the Chennai night sky. Dhoni calls it, settles under it as it swirls and spits fire, and takes the catch like its nothing. Fantastic, fantastic comeback from Tushar Deshpande after that first over.

IPL 2023 Live: Just 9 runs off the 19th, LSG need 28 off the last over

 Hangargekar has done his job here, as have the fielders at the boundary. At least twice it looked like the ball might cross the boundary, most prominently off the fourth and the sixth but the fielders ensured they don't.

Apr 3, 2023 11:16 PM IST

IPL 2023 Live score: LSG need 44 to win off last three

18 runs off the 17th over and LSG are on 174/6 off 17th. A tall, tall order for them but not impossible. Badoni is on strike on 11 off eight, Gowtham at the other end with 14 off 5.

Apr 3, 2023 11:13 PM IST

CSK vs LSG Live Score IPL 2023: DROPPED!

Chahar sticks to the plan, get the wide yorker right, Gowtham tries to smash this over midwicket but splices it over short third man. That was ballooned into the air, Shivam Dube was underneath it and he messed it up.

Apr 3, 2023 11:11 PM IST

CSK vs LSG Live Score: SIX!

Chahar finally gets it right but it is too straight and Gowtham flicks over square leg for six. 9 runs off the first three balls of the 17th!

Apr 3, 2023 11:10 PM IST

IPL 2023 Live: Hat-trick of wides!

Deepak Chahar bowling the 17th and third ball is turning into a problem for him. All of them attempted wide yorkers.

Apr 3, 2023 11:05 PM IST

IPL 2023 Live score: OUT! Pooran goes and it's Deshpande who strikes!

Well that might be the match but we have said that once before haven't we. Wide yorker from Deshpande, who had that horror over earlier, and Pooran goes after it. Stokes is at the boundary, he misjudges and runs forward at first, then corrects himself and goes back and still completes the catch despite the error.

Pooran c Stokes b Deshpande 32 (18), LSG 156/6, need 62 off 24.

Apr 3, 2023 11:02 PM IST

CSK vs LSG Live Score IPL 2023: LSG 150/5 in 15 overs

Need 68 from 30 balls. You can cut the tension with a knife here. Pooran is looking good on 31 off 15 and the hugely talented Ayush Badoni is at the other end.

Apr 3, 2023 10:59 PM IST


Wow, Pooran had smashed a lovely lofted extra cover drive for six off the third ball of this over and that looked like the best shot of the day. Then he upstages that after dot ball with a switch hit that is smashed to the third tier of the stands. Exceptional!

Apr 3, 2023 10:54 PM IST

IPL 2023 Live: LSG 136/5 in 14 overs

Stoinis cleaned up by Moeen who has now picked up his fourth. What a hand the all-rounder has played today with the bat and now with ball. 

Apr 3, 2023 10:48 PM IST

IPL 2023 Live score: LSG 125/4 in 12 overs

Stoinis and Pooran in the middle. Both are dangerous players and CSK will be desperate to get at least one of these two back in the hut in the next over. 

Apr 3, 2023 10:44 PM IST

CSK vs LSG Live Score IPL 2023: SIX AND FOUR! Nicholas Pooran is out there

Apr 3, 2023 10:33 PM IST

IPL 2023 Live: 9 overs gone, LSG 96/3 

Marcus Stoinis, the chief candidate to get the drop to fit in QDK and Mayers from the next match, is in the middle with Krunal Pandya. LSG's score is good on the runs front but it is the amount the batting that they have left which will be the worry. Unlike CSK, they don't have MS Dhoni walking in at eight or a batter of the calibre of Mitchell Santner at nine.

Apr 3, 2023 10:24 PM IST

IPL 2023 Live score: GONE! NOW RAHUL FALLS!

Rahul with a slog sweep towards wide midwicket. Gaikwad takes a few steps to his left and takes this a few yards inside the ropes. Moeen has taken both the openers. The target is so big that LSG may have lost this game already.

Apr 3, 2023 10:13 PM IST

IPL 2023 Live: Single and four overthrows! Fifty for Kyle Mayers!

This powerplay has been an unmitigated disaster for CSK. Mayers just pushes a back of a length delivery on off stump to extra cover, a terrible throw from the fielder and that just runs to the boundary. Half century in just 21 balls for Kyle Mayers. LSG 78/0 in 5.1 overs.

CSK vs LSG Live Score IPL 2023: 18 runs off the epic fourth over

Deshpande has effectively run in for two overs to finish this one over. 11 balls effectively and the last one, if you can believe it, is a dot ball! LSG are going quite well here, Mayers on 39 off 17, Rahul on 11 off 9.

Apr 3, 2023 10:04 PM IST


Effectively 10th ball of the over, legally just the fifth delivery and that is smashed over long-on for six. 18 runs off the over so far.

Apr 3, 2023 10:03 PM IST

IPL 2023 Live: FOUR!

When that fourth deliver comes finally, it is a knee high full toss and Mayers biffs it over mid-off to the rope.

Apr 3, 2023 10:02 PM IST

IPL 2023 Live score: No-ball, wide, no-ball, wide, fourth ball of the third taking forever!

Impact player Tushar Pande bowling the fourth over and the fourth ball has turned into a nightmare for him. He oversteps, then goes for a wide yorker that is too wide, then oversteps again, then goes wide again.

Apr 3, 2023 9:53 PM IST

CSK vs LSG Live Score IPL 2023: FOUR! Mayers keeps going

Chahar with a length ball outside off, Mayers punches it between cover and extra cover. Perfect placement so didn't matter that it had been at catchable height.

Apr 3, 2023 9:52 PM IST

CSK vs LSG Live Score: 18 runs off the second over

LSG 25/0 after 2 overs. Not a great first ever CSK over for Ben Stokes, Kyle Mayers took a single off the last ball to retain strike.

Apr 3, 2023 9:50 PM IST

IPL 2023 Live: SIX! Mayers taking a liking to Stokes

The fifth ball of the over is biffed over the bowler's head and over the ropes. That's 17 runs off the over with one ball to go.

Apr 3, 2023 9:49 PM IST

CSK vs LSG Live Score: The players return!

Kyle Mayers and KL Rahul are opening for LSG, Deepak Chahar bowling the first over. The Impact Players are on, Ayus Badoni had replaced Avesh Khan for LSG in the last over the CSK innings. Now CSK bring on Tushar Deshpande for Ambati Rayudu.

Apr 3, 2023 9:39 PM IST

IPL 2023 Live: Devon Conway talks

It was a great start tonight, the way Rutu played- that first six was pretty special. Took the pressure off me. He is sneakily strong, holds his shape really well and uses his hands well. The slower ball into the wicket might be a good option. Pretty difficult to hit due to the unpredictability of speeds. With the spinners, some skid on so if we hit the right lengths batting can be difficult. Very special feeling when I got here earlier. The crowd was pretty loud, really great atmosphere and watching MS go out there for the last over was pretty special. The message has been to just go out there and enjoy ourselves.

Apr 3, 2023 9:24 PM IST

IPL 2023 Live score: Chennai Super Kings 217/7 in 20 overs

Well that innings was a bit of a festival towards the end. There was a bit of a down time after those two openers fell with Mavi and Moeen trying to find their way. But they all then seemed to remember that they have a truckload of batting talent to come all the way to No.8 which then allowed them to just go for big shots and succeed of perish. Stokes yet to find his feet but CSK fans wouldn't mind, they saw Dhoni hit two sixes in the three balls he faced and that probably made their day already. 

Apr 3, 2023 9:22 PM IST

CSK vs LSG Live Score IPL 2023: OUT! Thala's cameo ends

Two sixes and out. A finisher's innings if there ever was one. Dhoni is caught in the deep by Bishnoi, Wood has taken three as well.

Apr 3, 2023 9:20 PM IST


Dhoni pulls and it has gone to the upper deck over square leg. He has raced past 5000 IPL runs. He has delivered already and the Chepauk is just noise at the moment. It is not a stadium, it's just the physical embodiment of the word "noise".

Apr 3, 2023 9:19 PM IST


Well, then. Somehting for the crowd to go even more crazy. Dhoni slashes it over wide deep third man.

Apr 3, 2023 9:17 PM IST

IPL 2023 Live score: GONE! Jadeja falls

Wood bowling the last over, Jadeja pulls and puts it straight down the throat of midwicket. But the CSK fans go berzerk at that wicket because this means that they will get to see MS Dhoni batting at last.

Apr 3, 2023 9:14 PM IST

CSK vs LSG Live Score IPL 2023: FOUR! CSK cross 200

There is that psychological hurdle established now for Lucknow to overcome. A cheeky one from Rayudu, he uppercuts it and just about puts it past Avesh Khan.

Apr 3, 2023 9:09 PM IST

CSK vs LSG Live Score: SIX! What a shot from Rayudu

Wow, Rayudu steps down the pitch to Mark Wood for the fourth ball of the over and smashes him right back over his head. CSK are into the 190s.

Apr 3, 2023 9:07 PM IST

IPL 2023 Live score: SIX! Rayudu welcomes Wood back

IPL 2023 Live score: OUT! That's it for Moeen

Moeen misses that altogether and gets stumped. Bishnoi has got his third and it is a googly again. Moeen got nowhere near the pitch of the ball as he came down the pitch and he has to now keep going in the direction of the dug out. Ambati Rayudu comes out, not Ravindra Jadeja or MS Dhoni.

Moeen Ali st Pooran b Ravi Bishnoi 19 (13), CSK 166/4 in 15.2 overs

Apr 3, 2023 8:54 PM IST

CSK vs LSG Live Score IPL 2023: FOUR! CSK 164/3 in 15 overs

Hat-trick of fours to end the over then. Avesh has conceded 31 runs in 2 overs. That last one was a work of art. Wide yorker from Avesh, Moeen guides it delicately to the boundary behind him.

Apr 3, 2023 8:51 PM IST


Avesh Khan is being belted around, Moeen Ali hits it to cover sweeper. Then the fifth ball of the 15th is sent in slow at a length, it si sent to the wide long-off rope.

Apr 3, 2023 8:49 PM IST

IPL 2023 Live: OUT! Dube falls

Bishnoi with the flighted googly on leg stump, Dube looking to go for anything and top edges it to short third man.

Dube c Wood b Ravi Bishnoi 27 (16), CSK 150/3 in 13.5 overs

Apr 3, 2023 8:46 PM IST


CSK have raced to 150 in 13.3 overs. He smashes it over wide long-on and then another flat over long-on.

Apr 3, 2023 8:44 PM IST

CSK vs LSG Live Score IPL 2023: SIX AND FOUR! Dube gets them going at last

Dube gets an overpitched delivery from Thakur and he smashes it flat over the bowler's head. Then Thakur goes back of a length outside off and pulls over wide long-on.

Apr 3, 2023 8:41 PM IST

CSK vs LSG Live Score: The brakes have been applied!

Well the commentators are saying that bringing Shivam Dube in at No.3 ahead of Moeen Ali or Ben Stokes may have been a bad move. It was seen as a bad move when Dube was brought later on ahead of Jadeja in the previous. Does make you wonder where it is that Dube can bat. He is right now struggling on 5 off 9 balls and CSK have not hit a boundary for about 9 balls now.

Apr 3, 2023 8:32 PM IST

 IPL 2023 Live: OUT! Brilliant catch from Krunal Pandya!

Short from Wood for the second ball of the 11th after being hit for a four by Conway off the first. Conway pulls, Krunal runs in from the rope about 20 yards and then dives forward.
