Collision Course

This IPL keeps remembering former England bowler John Snow and the shoulder barge. This time around, in the CSK-SRH game, it wasn’t clear who was the one shoving. Faf du Plessis rushed for a quick single to mid-off but the bowler Mustafizur Rahman stood too far behind the stumps to cover for the throw. It might still have been okay but Rahman started to backtrack a touch, perhaps anticipating that the throw might be fired real hard. In the process, though, he was right in the path of du Plessis who realised that he was going to ram into Rahman but couldn’t stop himself in time. Just after they collapsed to the ground in pain, du Plessis threw a look at Rahman, which suggested ‘what were you doing there, mate?’. Almost immediately, Rahman raised his left hand as sort of an apology. Civilities done, both reached for the ground to resume their tryst with pain.

20:33 (IST)02 Oct 2021
Gaikwad keeps on fighting

Gaikwad leads his team alone in the first innings! He takes on Tewatia and peppers the extra cover region with a fine shot for his sixth four of the evening. 12 runs off that over... is this a sign of resurgence? CSK: 83/2 (12 overs)

20:24 (IST)02 Oct 2021
RR in driving seat now

Chennai are on their backfoot as both Gaikwad (32*) and Moeen (3*) take it nice and easy now. CSK: 63/2 (10 overs)

20:15 (IST)02 Oct 2021

Rajasthan in the driving seat now! Raina (3) comes on early but the move to promote him fails as Tewatia dismisses him. The batter slog sweeps it and holes it out to Dube at deep mid-wicket. Gaikwad's on 29*. CSK: 57/2 (8.3 overs)
