The Lucknow Super Giants put together a magnificent chase to get their first win in the Indian Premier League.

Fifties from Quinton de Kock (61 off 45) and Evin Lewis (55* off 23) helped LSG chase down CSK massive total of 210/7 in some style. The chase went down to the wire but the win will do LSG’s confidence a whole world of good.

The CCI wicket has been good for batting but it seemed to bring the very best out of CSK opener Robin Uthappa. The 36-year-old veteran played shots all around the park to score a 27-ball 50 and give the CSK innings a blistering start.

But blistering starts can mean precious little in the T20 format unless there is someone around to finish what was started. Shivam Dube played a fine knock of 49 off 30 balls while others like Moeen Ali (35), Rayudu (27) and Dhoni (16 runs off 6 balls) chipped in with handy contributions.

On the bowling front, Ravi Bishnoi was in superb form in tough conditions. There was plenty of dew around but the leg-spinner returned splendid bowling figures of 24/2 in his four overs while everyone else took plenty of stick.
