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.
Mon, 03 Apr 2023 11:30 PM
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.
Mon, 03 Apr 2023 11:26 PM
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.
Mon, 03 Apr 2023 11:16 PM
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.

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.
Mon, 03 Apr 2023 11:11 PM
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!
Mon, 03 Apr 2023 11:10 PM
IPL 2023 Live: Hat-trick of wides!

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.
Mon, 03 Apr 2023 11:02 PM
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.
Mon, 03 Apr 2023 10:59 PM
CSK vs LSG Live Score: SIX! SWITCH HIT FROM POORAN!
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!
Mon, 03 Apr 2023 10:54 PM
IPL 2023 Live: LSG 136/5 in 14 overs

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.

Mon, 03 Apr 2023 10:33 PM
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.
Mon, 03 Apr 2023 10:24 PM
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.

Mon, 03 Apr 2023 10:13 PM
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.

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.
Mon, 03 Apr 2023 10:04 PM
CSK vs LSG Live Score: WIDE AGAIN AND THEN SIX!
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.
Mon, 03 Apr 2023 10:03 PM
When that fourth deliver comes finally, it is a knee high full toss and Mayers biffs it over mid-off to the rope.
Mon, 03 Apr 2023 10:02 PM
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.

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.

Mon, 03 Apr 2023 09:40 PM
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.
Mon, 03 Apr 2023 09:39 PM
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.
Mon, 03 Apr 2023 09:24 PM
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.
Mon, 03 Apr 2023 09:22 PM
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.

CSK vs LSG Live Score: MAKE THAT BACK TO BACK SIXES FROM MSD!
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”.
Mon, 03 Apr 2023 09:19 PM

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.

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.

Mon, 03 Apr 2023 08:51 PM
CSK vs LSG Live Score: BACK TO BACK FOURS!
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.

Mon, 03 Apr 2023 08:41 PM
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.
Mon, 03 Apr 2023 08:32 PM
IPL 2023 Live: OUT! Brilliant catch from Krunal Pandya!

CSK are 101/0 in 8 overs. Dew or no, if this keeps going then LSG are going to be quite far away from being within any chance of winning this game. It is Conway this time and he has now reached 39 in 23.
Mon, 03 Apr 2023 08:16 PM
IPL 2023 Live: Fifty for Gaikwad!
It has come in 25 balls. His last half century had come in 29 balls. What a start he has made to the season. Remember that Gaikwad had quite a sensational season in domestic cricket as well in all formats. CSK 87/0 in 7.1 overs.

Mon, 03 Apr 2023 07:59 PM
IPL 2023 Live score: SIX! Kohli-esque from Gaikwad!
Second ball of the fourth bowled by K Gowtham. He backs away, makes some room and sends it over the bowler’s head, almost exactly like how Kohli played that famous shot against Haris Rauf in India’s thriller against Pakistan in the 2022 T20 World Cup.

CSK vs LSG Live Score IPL 2023: CSK 33/0 after 3 overs
Krunal Pandya comes in to bowl the fourth. It is almost 8pm and we are only starting with the fourth over. While the delay in the start is largely to blame, that Avesh Khan over and the needless review from LSG is also guilty of this.
Mon, 03 Apr 2023 07:47 PM
CSK vs LSG Live Score: Now back to back fours!
What a terrible over this has been so far from Avesh. He goes good length with a lot of width and Conway takes that gift, then he goes around the wicket and full and Conway brings out the cover drive. 16 runs off the first four balls with the batters only hitting two fours in that.
Mon, 03 Apr 2023 07:47 PM
IPL 2023 Live: More bizarre scenes
And umpire Bruce Oxenford seems to have taken it personally as well because he calls for a front foot no ball against Avesh Khan off the next delivery, something on field umpires don’t do anymore. Replays show that his front foot wasn’t over the line and the third umpire asks Oxenford to reverse that.
Mon, 03 Apr 2023 07:44 PM
IPL 2023 Live score: FIVE WIDES!
Very sloppy from Nicholas Pooran behind the stumps and the ball runs behind to the boundary. On top of that, Rahul goes and reviews that wide call and that leads to an almighty delay which basically showed that the umpire was right with a basic call. Utterly bizarre from LSG to waste a review on that. Doesn’t show too much respect to the umpire.

CSK vs LSG Live Score: Dog on the field!
Well a canine has stollen all these cricketing superstars’ thunder. The stadium officials try some innovative tactics at the start, including walking around the dog in a triangular formation and trying to usher it out of the ground. But the dog runs away anyhow and then its just pandemonium. About 2-3 minutes are gone as the fans cheer and the players laugh with the dog proving to be as slippery as, well, a slippery dog. In the end, they somehow get the four-legged pitch intruder off the field and Mayers steams in.

IPL 2023 Live score: What MS Dhoni said (somehow above the noise of the CSK fans)
Does mean a lot to be back here. IPL started in 2008 but we’ve not played a lot of cricket here. Only about 5-6 seasons we’ve been here. This is the first time the full stadium will be operational, a few stands were empty earlier. Really glad that we get to play all our home games here at Chepauk, means a lot. Same squad for this game. Need to keep assessing our situation and keep revisiting our targets, keep a realistic goal in mind and take it from there.

IPL 2023 Live score: Pitch report
“Square boundaries – 68m on one side, 61m on the other side, downtown – 75m,” says Danny Morrison. “The batters will look to scoop and dab. It’s got a white sheen and it’s got the grass clippings rolled in. Average first innings score is 150, winning score will be around 165-167. Chasing here is challenging, but it’s a night game. Will the dew be a bit of a factor? Fingers crossed that it’s not too outrageous. Even though it’s ‘spin to win’, if a batter gets in and smashes it to the small sides, then look out, because the bowlers here at Chepauk can absolutely disappear.”

CSK vs LSG Live Score IPL 2023: Chepauk in international cricket
The MA Chidambaram Stadium has been the home of cricket in Tamil Nadu and the Madras Presidency in the pre-Independence era as well. One of the iconic venues of world cricket, the stadium has surprisingly hosted just two T20Is. The first was against New Zealand in 2012, which the Kiwis won by just a run. Then India faced the West Indies in November 2018 and they won this by six wickets. It is pretty meaningless to look at individual stats from such a short set but in ODIs, it is ‘Thala’ Dhoni who is the highest scorer with 401 runs in six matches. In Tests, the legendary Sunil Gavaskar is the highest scorer with 1018 runs in 21 innings. Sachin Tendulkar comes a close second with 970 runs in 16 innings.

IPL 2023 Live: Chance for Rahul to shine?
The Test and T20 formats have not been kind to KL Rahul off late. He fell after scoring a rather drab 8 off 12 balls in LSG’s first match. However, he has a good record against Deepak Chahar, CSK’s strike bowler. Rahul has smashed 120 in the 79 balls faced against Chahar without being dismissed. Rahul also averages 60.17 against CSK since 2019, with four half-centuries in seven innings.

IPL 2023 Live score: QDK still unlikely for LSG
It was only on Sunday evening that De Kock and South Africa beat the Netherlands by 146 runs and so it is highly unlikely that he will play today. But hey, LSG won’t complain. In fact, if anything, it helps them do away with a selection headache now as there is absolutely no way they can drop Kyle Mayers, or even think about using him anywhere else but as an opener really, considering what he did in their first match.

He started off pretty well in the match, giving just three runs in his first over and making Ishan Kishan and Suryakumar Yadav duck and weave in it. However, Krunal and Hardik Pandya, the former in particular, smashed him to all parts of the ground in his later overs and he ended being the most expensive bowler for his side. Wood did not play again and returned to England halfway through the season when it became clear to him that he is not going to play a further role in the season. He didn’t have a place in the CSK squad, now he is back as their biggest threat. Full circle and all that.

IPL 2023 Live: Mark Wood fire
LSG’s 178/7 on a tricky pitch in Lucknow was a daunting total in their first match of the season against Delhi Capitals but the away side were doing pretty well early on in the chase. David Warner and Prithvi Shaw were going at above 10 an over and were very much on track until Mark Wood bowled his first over. He brought pace and fury and sent back to LSG batters off consecutive deliveries. The next ball he sent in was a no ball and Sarfaraz Khan had nicked the free hit delivery to the keeper which means that if this was a Test match, Wood had completed his hat-trick. He eventually got his third; and fourth; and fifth! Thus completing his LSG debut with figures of 5/14. CSK have a real task at hand facing him today.

IPL 2023 Live score: Gaikwad on India selection
“I think India team selection doesn’t come into my mind at this moment because we have 15 games left at the moment. I am really thinking about how I can contribute to CSK winning each and every game and getting close to qualification, getting closer to a title. It’s better to stay in the present and contribute to the team.”

“It’s a luxury to have (Impact Player). It becomes slightly easy to take the decision because you can use it at any time,” Dhoni had said. But the World Cup-winning captain feels the rule will reduce the role of an all-rounder in the team. “Influence of all-rounder has become slightly less because of the rule,”

IPL 2023 Live: The Kane Williamson incident
Williamson injured his knee while pulling off a truly extraordinary fielding effort yesterday at the boundary line for Gujarat Titans against Chennai Super Kings to stop a six. He had to be helped off the field and is reportedly ruled out of the IPL. While that in itself is sad, let us hope that he recovers well over the course of this tournament and this does not become the start of another injury saga for the former New Zealand captain. Williamson had recently gone on a century-scoring spree, even leading the Kiwis to a thrilling last ball win against Sri Lanka with an unbeaten ton which confirmed a WTC final spot for India. It is in Test cricket that players like Williamson become a true joy to watch and let’s hope that this knee issue doesn’t hinder his flow of runs any more.

IPL 2023 Live score: CSK back in their den
The last match CSK played at the Chepauk Stadium was a First Qualifier in the 2019 season against Mumbai Indians. They lost that match by six wickets, largely due to a blinder of an innings played by Suryakumar Yadav. He smashed an unbeaten 71 off 54 balls. They would face MI again in the final and would lose that match as well, albeit by just one run despite opener Shane Watson smashing 80 off 59 balls chasing 150.

CSK vs LSG Live Score IPL 2023: Ruturaj Gaikwad looking good
Gaikwad had a real off season last year, especially compared to what he did the season before that. But he has got off to a bang this year allright. He scored 92 off 50 balls in the first match of the season against Gujarat Titans, hitting nine sixes and four fours. It was the kind of innings that made people think just how is it that he has not become one of the frontrunners for the opening spot in the Indian team.

CSK vs LSG Live Score: Kyle Mayers takes off
Two factors contributed to Kyle Mayers scoring 73 off 38 balls in his debut for LSG. The first, of course, was his sheer power and audacity, hitting them if they are in his range regardless of where the fielder is. The other, was the fact that Delhi Capitals were going having a serious butter-finger crisis while he was struggling to get going. He was saved by what surely will go down as the drop of the season by Khaleel Ahmed while he was 14 off 16 at the time and after that, he painted the town red. CSK were tight in the field in their last match despite losing it and so chances of Mayers getting a let off like that doesn’t seem high. And yet, CSK will know how important it is to get him out.

CSK vs LSG Live Score IPL 2023: CSK’s false start
CSK went down to a clinical Gujarat Titans in their first match of the season. Apart from Ruturaj Gaikwad, none of their other batters really got a significant but it is after the 15th over of their innings that things really started going awry for them. Gaikwad lost his breakneck meomentum with a couple of silent overs while batting partner Shivam Mavi never got going. It was captain Dhoni who pushed them close to 180 with a couple of big hits but GT were just clinical in their chase. Shubman Gill led the early assault with a half century and Rashid Khan and Rahul Tewatia then did the perfect finishing act.
