Shortly after registering the highest ever concurrent viewership during the Chennai Super Kings vs Rajasthan Royals IPL 2023 match, JioCinema breached the record for the second time in five days.
A whopping 2.4 Crore viewers came together as they watched MS Dhoni’s CSK defend a high-octane run chase from Royal Challengers Bangalore with bated breath at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru.
Match 24 of the season kicked off with expectations of another run-fest at RCB’s home ground and the four-time IPL champions who were put in to bat first didn’t disappoint.
Devon Conway, Ajinkya Rahane, and Shivam Dube amassed a bulk of CSK’s 226 runs, striking ferociously at 180+ each. In response, RCB lost two early wickets before Faf du Plessis and Maxwell accounted for 136 runs that put the boys from Bangalore back on track.
The match went down to the wire with 19 needed off the final over when JioCinema registered its highest concurrency yet of 2.4 Crore. Under the ice-cool guidance of Dhoni, CSK registered an 8-run win. The 444-run southern derby concluded with CSK bagging two crucial points in RCB’s backyard.
2.4Cr – enough to fill the Chinnaswamy 600 times, a number befitting the incredible drama and spectacle of this wonder we call the #TATAIPL!
