An official crowd of 31,525 was present at the MA Chidambaram (Chepauk) stadium in Chennai for the 2023 IPL game between CSK and Rajasthan Royals on 12 April, 2023. The crowd attendance was officially announced on television during the game (see pic below)
CSK needed forty runs off the last two overs chasing 176 on a tricky track, but a flurry of sixes off Jason Holder and Sandeep Sharma saw the equation being reduced to 7 off the final three deliveries. Sharma however held his nerve at the end, bowling a couple of crucial yorkers, and RR ran out winners by three runs.
The attendance however was lower than the 37,000 present in Hyderabad for SRH vs RR a few days ago.
