Crashing to a defeat against Gujarat Titans (GT) on Sunday in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 season, Chennai Super Kings (CSK) failed to register back-to-back wins at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune. David Miller, who smacked an unbeaten knock of 94 runs off 51 balls, was in fantastic form for GT and successfully led them past the finish line in a tense chase. The game could have had a different finish as in the 17th over, much to Dwayne Bravo and Ravindra Jadeja‘s utter disbelief, Shivam Dube pulled out of what seemed like a sitter of a catch. On the third delivery of the over, Miller received a slow delivery and tried to pull it but instead lobbed it high.
Instead of getting caught in the deep, Miller was given a reprieve as Dube, who was running in from cow corner, pulled out of the catch at the last moment. Jadeja was left infuriated and almost threw his cap in anger as he couldn’t believe what he saw.

Meanwhile, Miller’s unbeaten knock helped GT reach 170 for seven in 19.5 overs.
