LSG 33-2 (5 ovs) vs CSK 210-4 | Scorecard

CSK have a lot of options in the pace department as they have five specialist pacers in their team today, including Impact Player Thakur.

Stoinis taps Deshpande on the leg side for one and Rahul pulls the pacer for two runs followed by a single.

Stoinis lofts the length ball from the CSK pacer as he clears the fielder at mid-on for a four and defends the last ball back to the bowler.

Mustafizur Rahman replaces Chahar, who bowled an excellent first spell of 1/11 in two overs to give CSK the early breakthrough.

The first ball is in the slot, full and wide, as Rahul plays a beautiful drive through the covers for a four.

Mustafizur goes round the wicket and does well to beat the right-hander with a full delivery which moves away late to go past the outside edge.

He does the same next ball with some away swing to beat the LSG captain.

Rahul looks to break free as he slams Mustafizur uppishly but fails to get the elevation, hitting it straight to his opposite number Gaikwad at the edge of the boundary in the covers.

Rahul walks back after scoring 16 from 14 balls as LSG suffer another big blow in the Powerplay.

Devdutt Padikkal is the Impact Player for LSG. He keeps out the last two balls to end a superb first over from Mustafizur.
