The IPL 2023 opening match between Chennai Super Kings and Gujarat Titans has been thrilling so far. With just three overs remaining, Gujarat Titans need 30 runs to win.

In the first innings, CSK put up a total of 178/7 with Ruturaj Gaikwad scoring a half-century. Shubhman Gill’s innings of 63 runs was crucial for GT in the second innings, but they kept losing wickets at the other end.

When Gill got out in the 15th over, CSK had an opportunity to build pressure on the opposition by bowling tightly.

They managed to slow down the chasing team’s momentum, but the fielders made a blunder that boosted Vijay Shankar’s confidence. Mitchell Santner was bowling the 16th over when he delivered a slow ball outside off, which Shankar smashed along the ground between extra cover and long off.

The two fielders ran towards the ball but didn’t dive for it, assuming the other would go for it. This moment of utter confusion caused chaos, and the ball ran towards the boundary line while Devon Conway and Ben Stokes were left staring at each other.
