Rajasthan Royals (RR) lost their last match against the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur by three wickets. Their batters couldn’t score big, but most of them chipped in with short, yet useful scores and guided the hosts to a competitive total. Their fast bowlers got the Super Kings by the scruff of its neck, however, MS Dhoni and Kedar Jadhav kept the Rajasthan bowlers at bay.
The game went down to the wire and the hosts needed to defend 18 runs in the last over. However, Ben Stokes went for those many runs and the final nail in the coffin was drilled by Mitchell Santner with a last-ball six. With the defeat, the Royals remained at the seventh position of the points table in this edition’s Indian Premier League (IPL) with only one win against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB).
Their next game is against the Mumbai Indians (MI) at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai where the hosts won a thrilling encounter against the Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) courtesy of Kieron Pollard’s 31-ball 83. Mumbai are on a three-match winning streak and overhauling them won’t be easy by any means. RR also needs to deal with Suryakumar Yadav, who has a terrific record, both against RR and in Mumbai.
