Chennai fans paid a rousing and heartwarming tribute to Chennai Super Kings all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja ahead of the team's clash against Gujarat Titans at MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai on Tuesday, March 26.

It was decided by die-hard Chennai Super Kings fans that would pay a tribute to Jadeja at 7:38 PM, just eight minutes into the match. The tribute was for Ravindra Jadeja's heroics in the IPL 2023 Final against GT, where the all-rounder hit a six and four to take the team past the finishing line and help CSK lift record-equalling fifth IPL triumph.

Aditionally, fans chose 7:38 PM to pay tribute to Ravindra Jadeja as the experienced all-rounder dons Jersey no.8. Jadeja has been donning the same jersey number for CSK since 2012.

Coincidentially, another Ravindra, Rachin Ravindra unleashed his onslaught on Gujarat Titans bowlers during the match as he displayed his attacking style of batting and accelerated Chennai Super Kings' innings from word go. The Indian-origin batter opened the innings with skipper Ruturaj Gaikwad and struck a four and a six off Umesh Yadav in the 2nd over of the Chennai Super Kings batter.

Rachin, who was bought for INR 1.8 crore by CSK at IPL 2024 Auction last year, played a brilliant knock of 46 off 20 balls, comprising 6 fours and 3 sixes, at an impressive strike rate of 230.

Chennai Super Kings earn 2nd win on the trot under Ruturaj Gaikwad's captaincy

The defending champions Chennai Super Kings are off to a great start to their IPL 2024 campaign under the leadership of Ruturaj Gaikwad. CSK won their opening match against Royal Challengers Bangalore by six wickets, marking the new era of Gaikwad's CSK Captaincy.

In the last match, Chennai Super Kings made it two on two with a 63-run win over Gujarat Titans at Chepauk. Though Ruturaj Gaikwad is captain of the team, he was taking suggestions and guidance from MS Dhoni during the match.

Deepak Chahar hilariously said that he look at Gaikwad and Dhoni for advice. "I got to look at Mahi (MSD) bhai and at Ruturaj - both of them these days for field placements and all. So there is a bit of confusion about where to look now but Ruturaj is doing well, and he is leading the way," Chahar told after the match.

With two successive wins thus far, CSK are at the top of the points table with four points table. The five-time IPL champions will play their next match against Delhi Capitals at Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi on Sunday, March 31.
