Coming onto the match, Rajasthan Royals, batting first, posted a mammoth 216-7 on a small ground of Dubai. Sanju Samson (74 off 32) and Steven Smith (69 off 47) were chief architect of the innings in middle overs before Jofra Archer’s (27 off 8) blitz at the end took Royals at another level.
Chasing the huge target, Chennai Super Kings never looked in the chase as they were dented heavily by Rajasthan Royals spin duo of Shreyas Gopal and Rahul Tewatia. Faf du Plessis (72 off 37) and MS Dhoni (29 off 17) did cut short the losing margin by late attack, but it was Royals game all day long. Jofra was again sensational with the ball as he hurried the batsman with his skiddy pace and tuff lengths.
