IPL 2018: Rajasthan Royals Vs Chennai Super Kings Match Preview, Predictions

Buttler's blazing blade created a lot of damage in the initial overs as he hit a flurry of boundaries and sixes.

The consolation effort: Without Buttler's superhuman effort with the bat, the Chennai batsman would've had a night to savour, their top order firing in Jaipur.

After being hit for a four and a six, Harbhajan Singh came back superbly by darting a quicker one on Ben Stokes' stumps.

Ravindra Jadeja then dismissed Rajasthan captain Ajinkya Rahane in the next over to put Chennai in the driver's seat. Things started well for MS Dhoni's Super Kings, posting a competitive total, before Buttler went to work crafting a match-winning innings.

Buttler and Sanju Samson then tried to steady the innings, adding 45 runs between them off the next seven overs before the latter was run out following a terrible mix-up.

The English opener crossed his fourth straight half-century, but Samson's innings meant the asking rate climbed to over 10. The two wins, against Mumbai and Knight Riders, will take Royals to 12 points as well. Krishnappa Goutham smashes two sixes in the penultimate over of David Willey and his four-ball 13 was huge in the context of Rajasthan chase.

Jos Buttler made a fourth consecutive half-century opening the batting for Rajasthan Royals and helped chase down a above-par score of 177 on the penultimate ball of the match.

The duo provided the platform for skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni to launch a final assault, smashing 33 off 23 balls in company of Sam Billings (27 off 22 balls). "I think the bowlers let us down to some extent", the skipper added.

Watson's fall brought Dhoni out in the middle, but soon another wicket fell in the form of Raina, as the southpaw felled to Ish Sodhi's googly. That had sent Raina racing to 29, and allowed the slower Shane Watson to find his footing.

Raina started by clipping Archer off his pads to the square leg boundary. "We have been good in patches, extraordinary in patches and bad in patches as well". In the next over, he got a couple of more boundaries with a cut and a cover drive off Gowtham. The fifth boundary was a short arm pull over mid-wicket off Ben Stokes. The final five overs produced only 49 runs for CSK, which had been a healthy three for 127 at the end of 15 overs.

With 10 runs needed off the last four deliveries, the visitors missed a great chance when Buttler tried to hit Dwayne Bravo for a six but the ball skied up off the toe end of the bat. Raidu, who is still seen in the superlative rhythm, has failed to play a big game.

He added: "You can't get hit, on a wicket that was not coming on that back of the length was the hard one to hit". Once Raina was gone, Dhoni and Billings did their bit to take CSK to a challenging total.
