West Indies star Evin Lewis blazed to the fastest half-century -- of the IPL 2022 -- off just 23 deliveries and helped Lucknow Super Giants chase down a stiff target to beat defending champions by six-wicket defeat at the Brabourne stadium here on Thursday.

Lewis exploded into action in the last five overs. He and Ayush Badoni, who struck a half-century on debut against Gujarat Titans, blasted 25 runs off the penultimate over bowled by spinner Shivam Dube as Lucknow reached 211/4 in 19.3 overs.

Lucknow skipper KL Rahul had decided to field first as he wanted to avoid bowling in the dew. But when rode on a 25-ball half-century by veteran Robin Uthappa and 30-ball 49 by Shivam Dube, it looked like they had a match on their hands.

Earlier, defending champions rode on a breezy half-century by veteran Robin Uthappa and a fine 49 by local lad Shivam Dube to post 210/7 in their 20 overs, the fourth time a team posted a 200-plus score in IPL 2022 so far.

Uthappa, promoted to the opener's slot after they decided to drop New Zealand's Devon Conway, gave CSK a flying start they were hoping for as he blasted three boundaries off Avesh Khan in his opening over. Though the bowler responded by hitting him on the helmet in that over as Uthappa tried to duck a bouncer, the Karnataka veteran continued in the same vein.

He handled Dushmantha Chameera in the same fashion, hitting the Sri Lankan pacer for a four and six in his first over.

Though Ruturaj Gaikwad failed to click for the second successive match, there was no stopping Uthappa as he completed his 50 off 25 deliveries. He struck Avesh Khan for a six and also despatched Andrew Tye a couple of times to the boundary. Uthappa added 56 runs for the second wicket with Moeen Ali (35), who blasted four boundaries and two sixes during his 22-ball stay at the wicket.

He was out soon after completing his half-century, trapped by young spinner Ravi Bishnoi, the only Lucknow bowler who made an impression on the CSK batters, eventually ending with figures of 2/24 off his four overs. Avesh Khan and Andrew Tye (2/41) and Avesh Khan (2/38) claimed a couple of wickets each.

Dube continued from where Uthappa left off, hitting a couple of massive sixes and five fours, contributing 49 runs off 30 balls as he made the most of batting in his hometown. He added 60 runs for the fourth wicket with Ambati Rayudu (27).

In the end the platform set up by Uthappa and Dube helped CSK cross the 200-run mark with skipper and his predecessor M.S Dhoni landing a few lusty blows towards the end.
