Sai Sudharsan smashed his maiden century against CSK in IPL 2024 edition.

It was a memorable night for the young Gujarat Titans (GT) opener Sai Sudharsan when he stepped on the field during match No. 59 of the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 against Chennai Super Kings (CSK). Sudharsan not only registered his maiden IPL hundred in the match, but also broke a 14-year old IPL record of Sachin Tendulkar.

After being asked to bat first, Gujarat skipper Shubman Gill and youngster Sudharsan unleashed their beast mode against Chennai. Both the batters added 210 runs for the first wicket as the hosts reached a mammoth total of 231/3 in the 20 overs. Skipper Gill reached his first century of the IPL in 2024 as he hammered 55-ball 105 runs. While his opening partner Sudharsan also notched up his maiden IPL hundred.

The left-handed batter played a brilliant innings of 103 runs in just 51 deliveries, including five boundaries and seven sixes, with an explosive strike rate of over 200 during his stay at the crease. For CSK, Tushar Deshpande took two wickets in the first innings.
