The seventh game of IPL 2022 witnessed a clash between the defending champion Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and one of the two newcomers of the season Lucknow Super Giants (LSG). CSK made three changes on their side, with Devon Conway, Adam Milne and Mitchell Santner giving way to Moeen Ali, Mukesh Choudhary and Dwaine Pretorious. LSG made only one change and gave way to Andrew Tye, who replaced pacer Mohsin Khan.

Leading the batter, CSK-opener Ruturaj Gaikwad again failed as he was eliminated in the third over. Robin Uthappa didn’t stand a chance to hit the big shots as his fierce hitting skills helped CSK maintain a good walking speed. He was fired after scoring his half-century, but CSK’s strong batting order kept hitting the ball toward the fence.

Some quick runs from Moeen Ali (35), Ambati Rayudu (27) and Shivam Dube (49), and a concerted effort by each batter to the end helped CSK bring their tally to 210/7, making 24 fours and eight sixes . The dew played a big part in the game and it was a challenge for CSK to defend the total to open their winning account.

LSG beats CSK by six wickets

LSG openers started very well, much better than how CSK did, as KL Rahul and Quinton de Kock produced a brilliant 99-run collaboration. Thanks to Moeen Ali and Tushar Deshpande, De Kock and Rahul got an extra life in the game. It was the newcomer Pretorious, who got the first breakthrough for CSK when he fired the LSG skipper.

But De Kock seemed unstoppable as he made his first half-century (61 out of 45) with the LSG. Manish Pandey was sent off immediately when he entered the game, but after De Kock’s dismissal, Ewin Lewis sent the game for his side. It was a cutthroat competition between the two teams, as LSG batters kept hiding the score to tie the game.

Lewis (55 of 23) and Ayush Badonic sealed the deal for LSG when they crushed Shivam Dube for 25 runs in the 19e passed and the game ended with multiple boundaries. They chased 211 runs with three balls left, in the last one left, giving CSK their second loss of the tournament.
