Jofra Archer (27* off 8 balls) made sure that Royals finished their innings on a high as he smacked four consecutive sixes off Lungi Ngidi in the final over as the pacer leaked 30 runs in it.

Big blow for Royals as Smith departed after scoring 69 off 47 balls with the help of four sixes and four fours. 17.5 overs: NOT OUT! Tom Curran survives caught-behind decision. RR 176/6Plenty of drama in the middle. Umpires gave Curran out caught-behind immediately, and the batsman wanted to take a review as soon as the finger was raised but they didn’t have one left. After long discussions in the middle between umpires and both RR batsmen and CSK players, the umpires went up to check the catch and it turned out to be a bump before entering Dhoni’s gloves. And replays showed that the ball clipped the thigh pad and not the bat of Curran too. In the end, the right decision was taken. 17 overs: OUT! Sam Curran strikes again to dismiss Priyam Garg (6). RR 173/6Two wickets in the over for Curran. A brilliant one from the all-rounder as he also conceded just 7 runs in it.

RR 167/5Royals took a review against the LBW decision, but lost it. The ball was hitting the leg stump of the left-hander. Another wicket fell for Royals in quick time. 16 overs: RR 166/412 RUNS! A cheeky four from Steve Smith (66*), hitting it over short fine leg, and a cracking four by Rahul Tewatia (10*) over covers as Royals scored 12 off Lungi Ngidi in the over. Good one for Royals. 15 overs: RR 154/4Piyush Chawla ended his spell in style, taking a wicket and giving away just five singles in it. After conceding 28 and 19 in his first two overs, Chawla gave away just 8 runs in his next two while taking a wicket. His figures: 4-0-55-1* 150 comes up for Rajasthan Royals in 14.2 overs — 150/414.1 overs: OUT! Piyush Chawla gets rid of Robin Uthappa (5). RR 149/4Uthappa hit it straight to Faf du Plessis at long-off. Royals have lost three wickets in just 2.4 overs, and it will definitely hamper their run charge. Time-Out! 14 overs: RR 149/312 RUNS! It’s raining sixes in Sharjah. Steve Smith (59* off 39 balls) hit his 4th six of the innings off Ravindra Jadeja as the spinner conceded 12 runs to return figures of 0 for 40 in 4 overs. Tough outing for spinner tonight. 13 overs: RR 137/3With two wickets falling quickly, Dhoni brought in Piyush Chawla and the spinner managed to give away just three singles in it. But Chawla has now conceded 50 runs in just 3 overs. 12 overs: OUT! David Miller run out for 0. RR 134/3Disastrous start for Miller in Royals jersey. He was out run-out without facing a ball. Two quick wickets will give some confidence to CSK players. Brilliant over from Lungi Ngidi, five runs and two wickets in it. 11.4 overs: OUT! Lungi Ngidi removes ‘dangerous’ Sanju Samson (74). RR 132/2MASSIVE BREAKTHROUGH! Bowling change worked for CSK as Ngidi sent the in-form Samson back. Samson mistimed a wide ball and Deepak Chahar took a good catch at deep cover to bring some relief for his team. Samson was in his elements tonight as he smacked 9 sixes and a four in his 32-ball whirlwind knock. He also added a valuable 121 runs for the second wicket with Steve Smith. 11 overs: RR 129/110 RUNS! Comparatively a better over for CSK as Ravindra Jadeja conceded 10 runs in it. But it did not stop Sanju Samson (73* off 30 balls) from hitting his 9th six of the innings in it. 10 overs: RR 119/119 RUNS! Piyush Chawla’s dismal run continued as he was smacked for 19 runs in his second over too. Steve Smith (45*) hit a six and a four in the over, while Sanju Samson (66*) added another six to his account. Royals are on fire! 9 overs: RR 100/1Good comeback over from Ravindra Jadeja, gave away just four singles in it. Royals raced to 100 for the loss of just one wicket in 9 overs. Time-Out! 8 overs: RR 96/16, 6, 1, 1, 6, N1, 6 – Horrific start from Piyush Chawla, conceded 28 runs in the over. Sanju Samson (57* off 21) smashed three sixes in it, and skipper Steve Smith (31* off 22) finished it off with a six for himself. Royals are marching ahead in double quick time. * FIFTY for Sanju Samson off just 19 balls.

Sanju Samson hit a six and Steve Smith hit a four as the duo scored 14 off Deepak Chahar. * Steve Smith (22*) brings up 50 for Rajasthan Royals, in 5.5 overs, with a four off Deepak Chahar. RR 53/15 overs: RR 40/114 RUNS! Big over for Royals as Sanju Samson (16* off 9) targeted Sam Curran and hit a four and a six in successive balls in the over. Confident start from the keeper-batsman. 4.4 overs: SIX! Sanju Samson (13*) smacks Sam Curran over deep mid-wicket for a maximum, a ball after an outside edge gives him a boundary to third man. Luck & Class! RR 37/14 overs: RR 26/1Good comeback from Lungi Ngidi after he was hit for a six in the very first ball of the over by Steve Smith. The pacer gave away just 3 runs in the next 5 balls. 3.1 overs: SIX! Smith (15*) welcomes Ngidi with a big six over backward square leg for the first maximum of the contest.

Deepak Chahar dismisses Yashasvi Jaiswal (6). RR 11/1Caught & Bowled! This time Jaiswal managed to find only top-edge while trying to pull another short ball from Chahar.

RR 11/02 overs: RR 7/0Good start from Sam Curran too, a wide and two singles off it.

Jaiswal opened the scoring with a single off the third delivery, before Steve Smith scored a 2 and a single in the next three balls. Good fielding from the CSK fielders too. Here we go…Skipper Steve Smith and youngster Yashasvi Jaiswal to start the RR innings. Deepak Chahar with the ball for CSK. Playing XIs:Rajasthan Royals: Yashasvi Jaiswal, Robin Uthappa, Sanju Samson (w), Steven Smith (c), David Miller, Riyan Parag, Shreyas Gopal, Tom Curran, Rahul Tewatia, Jofra Archer, Jaydev Unadkat Chennai Super Kings: 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 What captains said after the toss:RR skipper Steve Smith: “Probably would have bowled as well. The dew factor as MS just pointed out will come into the game. Bat first and hopefully we do it well. Took a little bit longer than I would have liked. I had my first hit yesterday and it went well. Myself, Tom Curran, Archer and Miller. I have been involved with the Royals since 2014, it has been a while with a few years off there. We have got a good group, good bunches of guys, a lot of talent and we are excited about this year. I have heard a lot (about the youngsters) in the last few weeks. The boys have been trying exceptionally well here and been doing a great job. So it is time to bring out to the middle and hopefully we can see some really good talent taking off.”CSK skipper MS Dhoni: “We will bowl first. Dew is one of the factors. What we have seen is a consistent amount of dew all over, whenever there is a question mark when it comes to dew you want to chase. I feel this is one venue where the wicket will be entirely different compared to the other two venues. People will prepare differently for the matches over here. As of now looks good but it will slow down as the match progresses. I don’t know how hard the surface is underneath. We have one change – Rayudu is not 100 percent, so Rituraj comes in his place. Adaptability is the key in the shortest format. You need to quickly judge what length to bowl on that particular surface and to that particular batsmen. Those are things we need to do, other than that we won’t be the best fielding side, we will be a safe fielding side.”TOSS | Chennai Super Kings skipper MS Dhoni wins the toss, opts to bowl against Rajasthan Royals#CSK win the toss in Sharjah. Elect to bowl first against @rajasthanroyals. #Dream11IPL #RRvCSK https://t.co/A0HLCTu5rO— IndianPremierLeague (@IPL) 1600781755000Pitch Report:”We saw grass at Abu Dhabi and Dubai. There is no grass on this wicket. I can’t predict any sideways movement. You will be thinking low bounce when you prepare to play on this wicket. Once you get a pace of the wicket, you can score quickly. It is a very small ground compared to the ones in Abu Dhabi and Dubai. So, the guy who wins the toss will like to chase” – Kevin Pietersen* Toss at 7 pm IST and the match will start at 7:30 pm IST Hello and welcome to the live coverage of Match No. 4 of the Indian Premier League 2020 between Rajasthan Royals and Chennai Super Kings in Sharjah.
