Rajasthan Royals suffered
a heavy 45-run frustration against Chennai Super Kings in their Indian Premier League (IPL) meeting at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai today.
In the face of none of the batsmen reaching any landmark scores, Chennai managed to pile up a challenging 188 for nine after being sent to bat. Chennai bowlers then did an extraordinary job to bound Rajasthan to 143 for nine as MS DHONI’S side bustled to their second win in three matches.
Chennai all-rounder MOEEN ALI remained the most successful bowler of all, returning fascinating and wolfish figures of three for seven in his three overs. Sam Curran and RAVINDRA JADEJA picked up two wickets each for Chennai. Earlier, MUSTAFIZUR got his only scull of the game — that of Chennai opener RUTURAJ GAIKWAD — in his very first over.
The Bangladeshi left-arm pacer ended with figures of one for 37 in his four overs before bowling an significant final over of the game that included two runouts, a no-ball and a last-ball six.
