Rajasthan Royals vs Chennai Super Kings

RR got off to a flying start, thanks largely to Buttler, who has shown his true worth since being promoted to open the innings.

Chennai Super Kings skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni won the toss and opted to bat against Rajasthan Royals in an Indian Premier League (IPL) tie at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium here on Friday. He is in great form in this year's IPL and he is available at a salary of just 8. With Rajasthan Royals be able to chase the target? Chennai have won the toss and made a decision to bat at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium.

When the two sides met earlier this season, Shane Watson smashed the season's then-fastest century, as Chennai stacked up 204 and skittled Rajasthan for 140. Ambati Rayudu, Shane Watson, Dwayne Bravo, Captain Dhoni and Suresh Raina have played fine innings from time to time to their team.

Buttler would smash a six off the fourth ball of the final over and score the winning runs with one ball to spare. In the same over, he got his second boundary with a square drive. Ben Stokes (11, 7 balls) at the other end was looking to end the struggle in his role as an opener before he was bowled middle-stump trying to give Harbhajan the charge. Royals need to win all their remaining four matches to stay in hunt for play-offs. Buttler kept at it at the other end, bringing up his fourth consecutive half-century off just 27 balls.

Rayudu, especially, has batted well both as an opener and at number four, and is now at the third position in the run-scorers chart with 423 runs from 10 games.

It didn't help that Prashant Chopra, replacing Mahipal Lomror in the XI, couldn't make the most of his IPL debut, and Rajasthan slumped to 109 for 4 by the 13th over. Short ball from the bowler and Watson goes for pull only to find edge and into the hands of Jos Buttler. The Royals have had a roller-coaster ride as they win one and then lose again. That was realised easily in the penultimate ball.

However, the wicket in Jaipur seems to be bowler-friendly in the ongoing season. Raina began with a flurry of boundaries, but a few quiet overs ensued as the duo dealt in singles in response to some tight spells from Rajasthan bowlers.

For Rajasthan, Archer bagged couple of wickets but leaked 42 runs while Sodhi scalped one conceding 29 runs.

WICKET! Rajasthan lose their second batsman and its skipper Ajinkya Rahane.

With Dhoni walking in at No. 4 and a well-set Raina at the crease, Rajasthan would have feared the worst.

Dhoni remained unbeaten on 33 runs facing 23 balls, hitting a boundary and a six to help his side reach a fighting total of 176 runs.

It worked as in the next seven overs, only 51 runs were scored.
