  • Back to winning ways after a hat-trick of defeats Rajasthan Royals face a herculean task when they take on Chennai Super Kings in a must-win Indian Premier League 2018 match in Jaipur on Friday

His pair of sixes in the penultimate over against Chennai were crucial in setting it up for Buttler to win it at the last.

Watson, who usually looks a healthy, overpowering sort of dashed male, was frightfully disdainful.

The lost supposed that second-placed CSK are now four points supporting table-toppers SunRisers Hyderabad and could still lose from eligibility for the playoffs in case things don't move their manner in the team staying three matches. They trail league leaders Sunrisers Hyderabad by four points. According to ESPNcricinfo's ball-by-ball data, Sunrisers' batsmen were in control only 69% of the time in their first six overs, a figure which went up to 83% during Super Kings' chase.

Rather than looking to hit the good balls, the two looked to keep the scoring rate moving and waited for the bad balls to hit to the boundary.

The visitors were off to a slow start with just 29 runs in the powerplay, mainly due to a fine spell of bowling by CSK pacer Deepak Chahar (1/16).

The fast bowler has impressed over the past couple of seasons and plays a key role for the Sunrisers' much-vaunted attack as shown by his 13 wickets in this year's competition. This was clearly seen in the match against Rajasthan Royals. Off their bowlers, Shardul Thakur picked up 2 wickets along with 1 each for Dwayne Bravo and Deepak Chahar. Seven fours and seven sixes saw Rayudu race to a memorable century and help CSK all but seal a playoff spot. Fittingly, it was Buttler who hit the winning runs.

Earlier, a decent batting effort helped CSK post a fighting total of 176/4.

Chasing a competitive total of 180 runs, it was the 134-run opening stand between Ambati Rayudu (100 not out) and Shane Watson (57 off 35 balls), which guided the hosts home easily with an over to spare. On that occasion, Ambati Rayudu, Suresh Raina and MS Dhoni were the chief contributors with the bat for the team.

However, the decent start was short-lived as Jofra Archer drew the first blood for the hosts, when a short-ball from him took an inside edge to shattered Rayudu's (12 off 9 balls) stumps in the third over. Watson finally fell off the bowling of Shakib, run out in the 14th over, having played his part in the biggest opening stand of this IPL.

This is the first match the two teams will be playing against each other at this venue.

With some support from MS Dhoni (20, 14b), he took CSK home with a scintillating century to jump up to No. 4 in the list of highest run scorers in IPL 2018.

The new-man-in Suresh Raina, however, couldn't last long as he was dismissed by Sandeep Sharma for 2.
