CSK vs RR, IPL 2020: Ten matches, seven defeats, six points, and a spot right at the bottom of the IPL 2020 points table. That’s not what the Chennai Super Kings is known for. Meanwhile, MS Dhoni, after the defeat against Rajasthan Royals by seven wickets, conceded that “this season we were not really there”.
Chennai Super Kings won the toss and elected to bat first. Batting first, Sam Curran and Du Plessis came to the crease. Curran scored 22 runs off 25 balls while Du Plessis scored just 10 runs off 9 balls.
It is pertinent to mention that Chennai Super Kings smashed only one six in the innings that too from the bat of San Curran. Shane Watson, who is struggling with his form, scored 8 runs off 3 balls before getting dismissed by Kartik Tyagi.
Ambati Rayudu and MS Dhoni tried to take the team to a respectable score but couldn’t make it as they scored 13 and 28 runs, respectively. Jadeja scored 35 runs while Kedar Jadhav scored 4 runs off 7 balls. CSK put 125 runs on the board.
Chasing 126 during CSK vs RR, Royals’ Jos Buttler smashed an outstanding half-century as he hammered unbeaten 70 runs off 48 balls including 7 boundaries and 2 sixes.
Rajasthan Royals did not start well as Ben Stokes scored 19 runs while Robin Uthappa scored just 4 runs. Sanju Samson was duck and Steven Smith scored 26 runs. Meanwhile, Rajasthan Royals have reached the 5th spot in IPL 2020 points table.
The Yellow Army is not having a good season in IPL 2020 as it struggled in all the three departments, be it bowling, batting, or fielding.
