CSK vs LSG match: Chennai Super Kings become only IPL team to achieve elusive record in T20 cricket

CSK vs LSG match: Chennai Super Kings achieved a rare feat in T20 cricket on April 23. The 5-time champions did something no other IPL team has managed to do.

On April 23, Chennai Super Kings (CSK) lost to Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) and moved from number three to number five on the points table. It was their third loss in the last five games. However, during the match, CSK achieved a unique feat in T20 cricket.

Last night, CSK became the only IPL team to score 34 totals exceeding 200+ in T20 cricket. They have equalled Somerset's world record for most 200+ totals in men's T20 cricket.

Chennai’s 34th 200+ total was achieved, with captain Ruturaj Gaikwad remaining unbeaten at 108 off 60 balls against Lucknow Super Giants (LSG). It’s a separate story altogether that his century went in vain, as all-rounder Marus Stoinis’s unbeaten 124 off 62 balls helped LSG win the match.

In world cricket, Chennai and Somerset are followed by the Indian national team in terms of the highest number of 200+ totals in T20. India have scored 34 such totals, while Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) and Yorkshire are in the third position with 29 such totals.

CSK have put up 31 scores of 200+ IPL totals so far. The other three such totals came from the Champions League Twenty20. In 2014, when CSK won the multi-nation T20 tournament, they scored 242/6 against South Africa’s Dolphins.

In the year before that, Chennai scored 202/4 against the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH). In 2010, they scored 200/3 against Sri Lanka’s Wayamba cricket team.

CSK followed by RCB

CSK’s IPL record is five ahead of RCB’s 26. Bengaluru have scored three 200+ totals in the Champions League Twenty20 so far. RCB scored 215/8 against South Australia in 2011. In the same year, they scored 206/6 against Somerset. In 2011, again, they scored 204/4 against Australia’s New South Wales.
