Gujarat Titans captain Shubman Gill praised the Chennai Super Kings’ performance, admitting that his team were “outplayed” at Chepauk and let themselves down with their batting following their 63-run losses in the ongoing IPL 2024.

Under Ruturaj Gaiwkad’s captaincy, CSK won their second consecutive game, putting on a near-perfect performance against GT on a surface known to be volatile. Rachin Ravindra, the young opening batsman, got CSK off to a strong start, while Shiwan Dube provided a powerful boost in the middle overs and the final four to move them to a big score.

Shubham Gill admitted after the game that they were outplayed by CSK’s batting performance but praised their ball-handling execution. He stated, “They outplayed us when they were batting, and when they bowled, their execution was spot on. We backed ourselves to get a good powerplay score, but once we couldn’t, we were always playing catch-up.”

He also added, “In T20, you can always talk about 10-15 runs here and there, but eventually, it is about how much they got. We were expecting to chase anything between 190 and 200, but we can talk about how we could’ve stopped a few more boundaries. We would rather have games like these at the start of the tournament. We let ourselves down while batting.”

The GT suffered its greatest run-loss in history with the 63-run defeat. Following the bowling of CSK, the hosts’ stunning batting display resulted in a record 206/6.
