Batting first, the 5-time IPL champions made a tactical change in their batting order. With the overcast conditions helping with the swing, Cameron Green was promoted up the order to bat alongside Ishan Kishan. However, the move wasn’t the best strategy as Rohit Sharma had to come out to bat in the second over itself.

Ravindra Jadeja, stationed at the backward point, ran in comfortably and completed the catch. This marked the second duck for Rohit Sharma this year in the IPL as well as his 16th duck in the history of the IPL.
