  • IPL 2019,CSK vs KXIP,MS Dhoni

Problems are aplenty for Rajasthan as the side has not been able to convert a good show into victory and with the opposition like CSK, they will have to sweat hard to break the losing spell.

Chasing 152 runs to win, CSK were in all sorts of trouble from the first over after Dhawal Kulkarni disturbed the timber to dismiss Shane Watson for zero.

Suresh Raina has nearly 650 runs against RR in the IPL. After losing their last match, they find themselves in a precarious position, and have to win nearly all their remaining games to keep their play-off chances alive. CSK keep doing this, keep winning these last-over thrillers.

Royals skipper Ajinkya Rahane (14 off 11) failed once again with seamer Deepak Chahar (2/33 in 4 overs) trapping him leg before. Their 50-run stand for the fifth wicket came in 42 balls as Dhoni deposited Gopal into the stands for his third six. MS Dhoni and co. have excelled playing at home - even if the conditions haven't been to their complete liking; they now face the challenge of having to adapt - team combination-wise and strategy-wise - to the different conditions they will find on the road. Stokes then delivered a wide before Santner hit a six off the last ball to seal a thrilling win for the defending champions.

Rajasthan Royals:Ajinkya Rahane, Jos Buttler, Steve Smith, Rahul Tripathi, Ben Stokes, Prashant Chopra, K Gowtham, Shreyas Gopal, Jofra Archer, S Midhun, Dhawal Kulkarni.

Buttler and Rahane offered a brisk start for RR as the hometeam raced to 25 after two overs.

For Chennai, the bowling is a bit of a worry in the absence of the injured Dwayne Bravo, but the others have combined well with Deepak Chahar showing great ability during Tuesday's match against KKR. The final over, from which Chennai had required 18, also saw some controversy with the CSK captain M.S. Dhoni running on to the field to argue with the umpire over a no-ball.

Rahul Tripathi was the next man to get out as Ravindra Jadeja gave CSK their fourth wicket and reduced RR to 69/4 after 8.5 overs.

An angry Dhoni walked out of the dugout to get into a heated exchange with the umpires as Stokes tried to pacify the supposed "captain cool". However, just when it looked that RR would struggle to put 140 on board, Shreyas Gopal, who scored an unbeaten 19 off 7 balls, took on Thakur in the final over and helped RR score 151/7.
