Brief Summary

They lost the wicket of their skipper at the score of 45, which was the fourth wicket to fall and even though Watson was yet to bat, the chase was looking a stiff one for Rajasthan Royals. All Watson needed was a bit of support at the other end. And Binny proved to be the man who not only gave him support but was the one to begin the carnage with a six in Ashwin’s first over. It was altogether a different story from there onwards and Watson sent the Chennai fielders for a leather hunt. The bowlers tried to break Watson’s rhythm using all the means and by the time Bravo succeeded, the home team needed just four runs to register another comprehensive victory. Defeating the two-time IPL winners in this fashion will do wonders for Rajasthan Royals and they have a long way to go!

====================================================================================

CSK innings:

Over 17.1 || Score 144/5

Jadeja into his second over. Binny makes some room for himself off the first ball and smashes it over extra cover for a SIX and Rajasthan have won the match by 5 wickets!

Stuart Binny 41* (23b) Brad Hodge 0* (1b)

====================================================================================

Over 17 || Score 138/5

Dwayne Bravo to bowl his third over. Watson got an edge off the third ball that rushed past third man for a boundary! The fifth ball was a Yorker and Shane Watson has been bowled! An incredible inning comes to an end, Rajasthan now need just four runs to register another comprehensive victory. The crowd gives him a standing ovation, so do his teammates. Brad Hodge is the new man in. Five from the over.

SR Watson b Bravo 70 (34b)

====================================================================================

Over 16 || Score 133/4

Ravindra Jadeja comes into the attack. Three from the over, some relief for Chennai.

====================================================================================

Over 15 || Score 130/4

Morris to bowl his final over, CSK desperately need a wicket here. The second ball was bowled at the pads and Watson sweeps that to fine-leg for a boundary that brings his 50 off just 25 balls! This has to be one of the best innings of IPL 6. He has entertained the home crowd and CSK bowlers are looking hopeless now. The fourth ball was a full-toss and Watson worked that to deep square leg for another boundary! The next ball Watson attempts another big stroke and gets an edge that flies past third-man for a boundary! The last ball was bowled at the pads and Watson guided that to fine leg for the fourth boundary off the over! It’s is impossible to stop Watson now! 16 from the over and he is finding boundaries everywhere.

====================================================================================

Over 14 || Score 114/4

Bravo brought into the attack. The first ball had some room on the off-side and Binny launches that over extra cover for a SIX! Binny pulled the next ball to deep square leg for a couple that brings 100 for Rajasthan Royals! The fourth ball was short and Watson pulled that over deep midwicket for his fifth six of the innings! And guess what, the next ball was full again and even though Watson doesn’t hit it from the middle of the bat, he still manages a Six over long-on! Superb batting this from these two. The Rajasthan supporters are up on their feet again! 22 from the over.

====================================================================================

Over 13 || Score 92/4

Holder to bowl his final over. Four runs came off the first balls and then Watson smashed the last delivery over long-off for a flat SIX! Ten from the over.

====================================================================================

Over 12 || Score 82/0

Morris into his third over. He banged the fourth ball short and Binny cleared the fielder at point for a boundary! The last delivery was bowled at the pads and Binny cleverly guided that towards fine-leg for a boundary! Ten from the over.

====================================================================================

Over 11 || Score 72/4

Ravichandran Ashwin is brought into the attack. Binny wastes no time and he launches the third ball just over Jadeja at midwicket for a SIX! Had Jadeja timed his jump perfectly, that would have been another wicket for CSK. And now Shane Watson goes for his favourite slog-sweep shot that clears midwicket for a SIX! Ashwin comes round the stumps and Watson once again goes over deep midwicket for the third Six of the over! So Ashwin goes for 23 in his first over.

====================================================================================

Over 10 || Score 49/4

Morris to continue. And he gets rid of the Rajasthan skipper, Rahul Dravid is caught behind! There was once again good bounce, Dravid wanted to play that over point but managed just an edge. Stuart Binny is the new man in. Six from the over.

====================================================================================

Over 18 || Score 116/4

Watson to bowl his final over. Jadeja faced a dot ball, didn’t connect with the second and went for a run, Yagnik’s direct throw is the end of Murali Vijay’s innings.

====================================================================================

====================================================================================

TOSS: Dravid has won the toss and Rajasthan Royals will bowl first.

It has been routine business for Chennai Super Kings in IPL 6. After a shaky start, they are once again right there on the top of the table with ten wins from 13 matches. Apart from Murali Vijay, all the batsmen have produced match-winning results. Dhoni has been experimenting too much with his bowlers and so far things have worked for him. MSD himself hasn’t been in great form in the last few matches, something which we rarely see and it could be one of those matches where he could come all guns blazing.

Rajasthan Royals have won all their matches on the home ground and have looked one of the best teams this season. The Dravid-led side has been in some great form as Rahane, Dravid and Watson have batted exceedingly well at the top of the order. The only concern for the Royals should be the form of James Faulkner who hasn’t managed to pick wickets on a regular basis ever since he claimed that five-wicket haul. The bowlers have struggled and Rajasthan have managed to win the last few matches as the top order as fired under all circumstances. Dravid would want his boys to deliver an all-round show that can help them register another victory in front of the home crowd.
