#RRvCSK #IPL2020 05:29 PM&nbsp• Sep 09, 2020 Tom Curran among the wicketsThoroughly professional display from RR’s bowlers. Another CSK batsman bites teh dust. Jadhav looks to heave this ball , can only feather a nick to Samson, who can do no wrong today.Run-rate 7.86; Required Rate: 14.86 Not understanding what CSK is trying to pull off here. Which is totally normal by the way 05:17 PM&nbsp• Sep 09, 2020 First-ball duck for GaikwadDidn’t even give himself a ball to get his eye in. Comes out charging, Tewatia throws it slow and wide. Samson with another stumping! Third wicket for Tewatia and out comes the finger in ear celebration. The Tewatia wicket celebration. Points of 10? Great bowling from Rahul Tewatia. But that fingers in ears silencing the crowd celebration probably doesn’t work that well in an empty stadium. 04:58 PM&nbsp• Sep 09, 2020 Curran falls for a 6-ball 17Hits two towering sixes, looks for another, but Tewatia takes off the pace and has him stumped. RR leggies getting the length right on the pitch for most parts. Ruturaj Gaikwad comes in.One brings two…Murali Vijay finds the man in the deep with his pull shot. RR on top of course but CSK will have to question Vijay’s role here. 21 off 21.A wicket for now Gopal, that makes it one each for the leggies. They are controlling the middle overs so far…This was exactly the time in the RR innings when Jadeja and Chawla were disappearing into the stands.And now gone…Rahul Tewatia gets the big fish Watson. Gets this to skid across the surface, Watson rocks back to pull , misses and the ball ricochets of his thigh to take out leg stump. Huge blow for CSK.Left-hander at No.3 to counter the leggies? Nope. Here’s Faf.Watson starts the attackTwo sixes and a four off Tom Curran. CSK move up to 53/0 after the PowerPlay. That sixth over has finally given the score some impetus.Five overs: Still steady36/0. Time to get a move on!The chase beginsVijay and Watson have had their sighters in the first couple of overs now. CSK have got just 8 in these overs but you can bet on more chances being taken up very soon.Whoa… Archer’s onslaught takes RR to 21630 runs off the final over. First four balls went for sixes. There were two no balls and a wide in there as well. CSK’s comeback undone by another bad over. They’ve had multiple bad overs today. 8-ball 27 for Archer.The finish was great but CSK will wonder why their spinners bowled without a Plan B. Just kept lobbing it up and Samson took full toll.Sam Curran takes threeSmith goes for 69, looking to heave one to the legside. Pretty decent comeback by CSK. They looked deflated during that 121-run stand between Smith and Samson. They may well restrict RR to under 200 and that’s a moral victory in itself.Another umpiring confusionTom Curran is adjudged caught behind rather poorly, he doesn’t have a review to overturn it. The two umpires convene and decide to take the decision to the third umpire off their own volition. There is no bat. So the decision is overturned. They could have still checked for the LBW there!The seamers taking the ball off having it betterThe pitch too appears to have slowed down a touch despite the dew settling in. Credit where due, decent comeback from CSK with those regular wickets – off Uthappa, Tewatia and Riyan Parag. Can RR still get to 200?Uthappa goes; Decent comeback from ChawlaUthappa holes out at long-off. Poor outing for him. A wicket for Chawla. He conceded 47 from his first first two overs. Just the 8 from his next two! Dhoni has had to bowl him because they don’t have a 6th bowler.Smith completes 50; Reprieved againSam Curran is waiting by the long-off boundary. He’s weirdly standing side-on. But he seems to have made up his mind on doing the Faf-style toss and step back. Can only end up parrying it over the ropes for a six. The skipper gets to the mark of 38 balls. RR 14 overs 149/3A diamond duck for MillerUnfortunate really, as he loses hold of his bat while running a two. Good pick up and throw from Ruturaj Gaikwad. Kedar Jadhav collects it at the non-striker’s end and breaks the stumps with Miller’s gloves agonisingly short of the crease. 0 (0).Samson falls for 32-ball 74CSK heave a sigh of relief, thanks to Ngidi. He ends the Sanju storm, has his man caught at sweeper cover. End of the most remarkable 121-run stand. But take a bow, Sanju Samson.74 off 32, 1×4; 9×6; SR 231.25Nothing going CSK’s wayNot even that famed Dhoni Review System (?)! Jadeja should have had Smith once more. But CSK don’t the review.Meanwhile… Piyush Chawla has gone for 47 in 2 overs. Sanju Samson has hit 9 sixes! A 12-ball 47 after a 19-ball 50. Chawla and Sanju 02:54 PM&nbsp• Sep 09, 2020 CSK bowlers clueless against Samson and Smith!5th over (Curran) — 14 runs6th over (Chahar) — 14 runs7th over (Jadeja) — 14 runs8th over (Chawla) — 28 runsSamson dealing in sixes!The 25-year-old blasts six sixes to notch up a 19-ball fifty. omg what is that sanju samson what were you doing during the lockdown insane 02:40 PM&nbsp• Sep 09, 2020 Smith and Samson fight backCurran and Chahar leak 14 runs apiece and RR are 54/1 after 6 overs!Chahar strikes!2.1 – Chahar to Jaiswal –> short ball –> pulled –> middled –> FOUR2.2 – Chahar to Jaiswal –> short ball –> puled –> top-edge –> OUTSteve Smith opening with Yashasvi JaiswalGood move from the RR captain? He’ll be tasked with batting through, obviously! Keep an eye on young Jaiswal. Deepak Chahar has the ball. Yashaswi Jaiswal makes his IPL debut

#RRvCSK 01:40 PM&nbsp• Sep 09, 2020 Toss: Rayudu not 100% fit; Ruturaj Gaikwad handed IPL debut; CSK bowlNo surprises with Dhoni’s decision. He expects dew to be a factor once more. No surprises either in Rajasthan Royals’ foreign players pick: Smith, Miller, Archer, Tom Curran.How big a loss is Rayudu? Does it have to something to do with the soft desert sand under the ground. It’s been an issue for Pakistan players in the the past. Or is it just that players who have not played in over six months are now thrown into such competitive games straight up who are pulling up. Anyway big call-up for young Ruturaj, who has had only one training session since recovering from COVID-19.Anyway, fantasy players who’ve had to lock in teams before the toss. I’m sorry. I feel you.Rajasthan Royals (Playing XI): Yashasvi Jaiswal, Robin Uthappa, Sanju Samson(w), Steven Smith(c), David Miller, Riyan Parag, Shreyas Gopal, Tom Curran, Rahul Tewatia, Jofra Archer, Jaydev UnadkatChennai Super Kings (Playing XI): Murali Vijay, Shane Watson, Faf du Plessis, Ruturaj Gaikwad, MS Dhoni(w/c), Kedar Jadhav, Ravindra Jadeja, Sam Curran, Deepak Chahar, Piyush Chawla, Lungi Ngidi @kaushik_cb
Rajasthan should have picked a pacer like Ankit Rajpoot or Kartik Tyagi ahead of Rahul Tewatia. We have seen the new ball seaming around at the start of the innings 01:40 PM&nbsp• Sep 09, 2020 Team NewsCSK have confirmed that Dwayne Bravo (knee) is likely to sit out one more game. But Sam Curran, who replaced him, did more than just make a mark. This is what head coach Stephen Fleming had to say:The things that impressed us with Sam is his attitude first and foremost, almost the harder it gets the better he gets, his all-round skill component and the fact that the captain was able to trust him straightaway to go in at a crucial time and hit the way he did.Sam will be up against his brother Tom for this one, who is likely to pair with Jofra Archer in RR’s bowling attack. Smith an Miller to complete the set. That’s my prediction any way. Do you have other ideas? Send it quickly. 11 minutes to go to toss.RR Preview: Average age of 26They have the youngest squad this season. But they have three wrist spinners in their squad: Shreyas Gopal, Mayank Markande and Rahul Tewatia. How many of them will play today?Why don’t you read Kritika Naidu’s season preview while we wait for the toss!Last time in this match-up :p Let’s hope there is no reprise. Prelude – Youth v ExperienceIn more ways than one. CSK already have a game under their belt in IPL 2020. Rajasthan Royals will have some butterflies in the stomach before getting their campaign underway.Thankfully for the Royals, who will be without Jos Buttler and Ben Stokes (still in NZ), this is a new venue. Sharjah may not be ideal for CSK given it’s shorter boundaries and traditionally flatter surface. So Dhoni may not be able to dictate the game’s tempo with spin as he so likes to do.We spoke about age and experience. After Devdutt Padikkal last night, keep an eye out for Yashasvi Jaiswal, Riyan Parag and Kartik Tyagi! There’s a lot of youthful promise in that team in pink. Looking forward to seeing the next Indian star with the bat in hand making his #Dream11IPL debut, @yashasvi_j Jaiswal. India have an abundance of young talented cricketers who are fearless & he will have to be playing against #CSK 01:18 PM&nbsp• Sep 09, 2020 ^^ The hype is real, people. 400 runs in the U-19 World Cup this year.
