CSK vs RR Match Report 37

Needing 126 runs to win, RR made a brisk start as Ben Stokes went for his shots. But CSK fought back and picked three wickets in the powerplay. Stokes got out after he dragged a Deepak Chahar delivery onto the stumps. Robin Uthappa was the next man to get out as Josh Hazlewood picked his first wicket of the match. MS Dhoni, then, dived towards his left and took a one-handed stunner in the fifth over to dismiss Sanju Samson.

Further, it was MS Dhoni and Ravindra Jadeja who kept the scoreboard ticking as CSK moved to 89/4 at the end of the 15th over.

Finally, after two overs, CSK moved past hundred before the Dhoni-Jadeja pair completed a fifty-run stand. But Dhoni was run-out soon after and CSK was successful in scoring 125/5 on the board, with Jadeja scoring an unbeaten 35. It was a spectacular watch indeed!
