Chennai Super Kings vs Rajasthan Royals 2019 Highlights:Β Chennai Super Kings won their third match of the IPL 2019 with a eight-run defeat of Rajasthan Royals at the Chepauk stadium in Chennai on Sunday. Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s well-calculated half-century in challenging conditions turned out to be a game-changer. Dhoni remained unbeaten at 75 off 46 balls to lead his side to a competitive 175 for five, seizing momentum from Royals bowlers who were off to an inspiring start. The pitch used in the previous match was a rank turner but on Sunday it turned to be a different challenge for the batsmen since it was not conducive for stroke-play as the ball was stopping a bit.

Rajasthan Royals needed someone to pace the innings according to the need of the match and they ended at 167/8, suffering their third defeat. Ben Stokes and Jofra Archer took the chase deep with their fiery 44-run partnership but Dwayne Bravo bowled a brilliant last over, defending 12 runs that Royals needed to score to claim the win.

Squads:

Chennai Super Kings: MS Dhoni (captain & WK), Suresh Raina, Ambati Rayudu, Shane Watson, Kedar Jadhav, Ravindra Jadeja, Dwayne Bravo, Imran Tahir, Shardul Thakur, Deepak Chahar,Β M Santner.

Rajasthan Royals: Ajinkya Rahane (C), Steve Smith, Ben Stokes, Jofra Archer, Jos Buttler (wk), Sanju Samson, Shreyas Gopal, Jaydev Unadkat, Dhawal Kulkarni, Krishnappa Gowtham.

    CSK coach on the Chennai pitch

    "It certainly wasn't up to the scratch in the first game and contrary to belief, that wasn't by design by us. I've looked at the surface (for tomorrow's match), it looks a lot better, a lot harder and compact. But we just have to be flexible as soon as the first ball is bowled and play accordingly," said CSK coach Stephen Fleming. A controversy had erupted after RCB were bowled out for 70 in the first game here.
