IPL 2020, CSK vs RR: Highlights

IPL 2020, CSK vs RR Highlights: Jos Buttler remained unbeaten on 70 from 48 balls, as Rajasthan Royals secured a comfortable seven-wicket win over Chennai Super Kings in the Indian Premier League clash on Monday. Chasing a 126-run target, CSK seamers Deepak Chahar and Josh Hazlewood picked three wickets inside the powerplay overs. However, Buttler and Smith then went on to add 98 runs for the third wicket, helping Rajasthan complete the chase in just 17.3 overs.

Earlier in the day, CSK’s decision to bat first backfired as the team could only manage a paltry 125/5 after 20 overs. Ravindra Jadeja finished the innings unbeaten on 35 from 30 deliveries as the in-form batsmen Faf du Plessis and Shane Watson fail to fire big. Among the Rajasthan bowlers, it was Shreyas Gopal, Rahul Tewatia and Jofra Archer who did the most damage. All the three bowlers maintained a clinical economy rate of less than six.

Buttler is making things look easy!

A good over for Rajasthan as 13 runs come off it. Buttler is making things look easy as he slams Shardul Thakur towards the deep backward point, and then plays a impecabble drive towards the long-on region for a six. Is the game over for CSK? RR: 79/3 (12 overs)

22:26 (IST)19 Oct 2020

After 3 early blows, Buttler-Smith add 38 from 39 balls to get the RR chase back in track. They need another 60 to win in 54 balls. RR: 66/3 (11 overs)

End of powerplay!
21:58 (IST)19 Oct 2020
Huge LBW appeal!

A huge appeal for LBW by Hazlewood against his countryman Steve Smith. The umpire is not interested, Smith is unperturbed but Hazlewood thinks he has got his man. 

Dhoni takes a review and TV replay shows that the ball did hit Smith's pads right in front of the stumps. However, there was a spike in the snicko meter, which saves the Rajasthan Royals skipper. RR: 28/3 (5.1 overs)  

21:54 (IST)19 Oct 2020
Dhoni takes a brilliant catch!

Another wicket for Deepak Chahar and this time Dhoni takes a brilliant catch diving to his left. The ball was sliding down the leg-side and Sanju Samon tried to nudge it. However, an alert Dhoni picks up a brilliant catch to help CSK pull things around. RR: 28/3 (4.3 overs) 

21:46 (IST)19 Oct 2020
What was Robin Uthappa trying!

What was Robin Uthappa trying. He shuffles inside the crease and tried to scoop a short delivery by Josh Hazlewood over the wicketkeeper's head. A poor shot as the ball hits the sticker of his bat and Dhoni collects the ball comfortably. RR:28/2 (3.2 overs) 

21:44 (IST)19 Oct 2020
Deepak Chahar does it again!

Deepak Chahar does it again for CSK as Ben Stokes drags a good length delivery onto his stumps. The England all-rounder is frustrated as he walks back after scoring 19 from 11 balls. RR: 26/1 (3 overs) 

21:39 (IST)19 Oct 2020
Not a great start from CSK!

Rajasthan Royals start on a positive note as the pair of Ben Stokes and Robin Uthappa fetch 10 runs off it. However, the umpires did go upstaris for a leg before review in the final ball of the over, but it brings no results. 

Meanwhile, Josh Hazlewood also fails to build any pressure from the other end as he conceds the same number of runs from his first over of the season.

MS Dhoni misses by centimeters

It's the end of MS Dhoni, he is run-out on 28 from 28 balls. After hitting the ball straight to Jofra Archer at long-off, Dhoni tries to steal a double.

20:40 (IST)19 Oct 2020
Not the ideal over by Kartik Tyagi!

Not the ideal over by Kartik Tyagi as 14 runs come off it. Both Dhoni and Jadeja get the much-needed boundaries as well as the duo add 29 runs from 24 balls. CSK: 85/4 (14 overs)

Miandad on Dhoni's struggles this season

Javed Miandad, whose powers were on the wane during the last of his six World Cups in 1996, on why the CSK skipper is struggling with the bat. 

"I have seen Dhoni’s batting in this IPL. To me, the problem areas are his timing and reflexes. If a player is not totally match fit, his timing and reflexes get slower. Dhoni needs to assess himself. Self-assessment is what you do constantly as long as you are playing the game." [Read]
