IPL 2020, RR vs CSK Highlights: Rajasthan Royals (RR) beat Chennai Super Kings (CSK) by 16 runs in Sharjah on Tuesday as the Steve Smith-led side successfully defended their first innings total of 216/7.
Inviting RR to bat first backfired on CSK as Smith’s team posted a massive total owing to a 121-run partnership between the skipper and Sanju Samson (74). Jofra Archer’s 8-ball 27 helped RR reach their total in the final over. In their chase, CSK started well with Shane Watson (33) and Murali Vijay (21) but Rahul Tewatia’s three quick wickets proved to be their downfall. Despite a late show by Faf du Plessis (72) and MS Dhoni (29*), CSK failed to complete the task as they ended on 200/6.
