First Innings: RR vs CSK
Rajasthan Royals won the toss & decided to bowl first, which was looking like a terrible decision. CSK’s Jaiswal started off by hitting 4 boundaries & completely dominated bowlers like Josh Hazelwood. Lewis joined the party in the next over by hammering six and four off Sam Curran’s first two balls. The fifty stand came up at the end of the fourth over – Lewis’ forceful pull over deep midwicket raised that milestone.
CSK’s middle order did it’s job well & it was Gaikwad again who scored his century on the last ball of CSK’s innings. At one point he was on a run-a-ball 32, but just as Super Kings got into the second half of their innings he began to accelerate to eventually end on 101* from 60.
Second Innings: RR vs CSK
One of five players brought into Royals’ side for the game against Super Kings, Dube capitalised on the opportunity with an unbeaten 64 off 42 balls. Dube started off patiently – perhaps the commanding opening partnership allowed him that luxury – and got just four off his first seven balls. But he welcomed Ravindra Jadeja into the attack in the ninth over by firing a six over the long-on boundary, and when Super Kings introduced Moeen Ali in the next over, he took consecutive sixes off the offspinner.
Soon after, Dube was gifted two full tosses by Sam Curran – the first he swung beyond a diving Jadeja at long-on for four, the second he put beyond the deep-midwicket fence. He utilised the width on offer from Hazlewood later on, and reached his maiden IPL fifty off 30 deliveries. Dube ended with his highest score in the format.
Rajasthan Royals 190/3 (Shivam Dube 64*, Yashasvi Jaiswal 50; Shardul Thakur 2/30) beat Chennai Super Kings 189/4 (Ruturaj Gaikwad 101*, Ravindra Jadeja 32*; Rahul Tewatia 3/39) by 7 wickets.
