An official attendance of 32,921 was recorded at the MA Chidambaram (Chepauk) stadium in Chennai as the Super Kings beat Sunrisers Hyderabad by seven wickets. CSK won the toss and opted to bowl first, and their spinners strangulated SRH in the middle period as the visitors crawled to 134 in their allotted 20 overs.
In reply, Devon Conway’s blistering start helped settle any nerves CSK might have had at the beginning of the chase. He was particularly severe on Marco Jansen and finished unbeaten on 77* (57) as CSK comfortably overhauled the target with 6 balls to spare.
This CSK v SRH crowd at IPL 2023 was better than the 31,525 who turned up at the same venue for CSK v RR a few days ago.
