RR vs CSK: Shivam Dube’s quickfire fifty guided Rajasthan Royals to a 7-wicket win vs CSK.© BCCI/IPL
Quickfire fifties from Shivam Dube (64*) and Yashasvi Jaiswal(50) helped Rajasthan Royals (RR) beat Chennai Super Kings (CSK) by 7 wickets in Match 47 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) on Saturday at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi. Chasing a target of 190 runs, Rajasthan got a flying start from their openers Evin Lewis (27) and Jaiswal who added 77 runs for the first wicket. Jaiswal got to his half-century in just 19 balls and when he got out Shivam Dube continued the momentum with skipper Sanju Samson (28). Dube and Samson added 89 runs for the third wicket. Earlier, while batting first Chennai set up the target of 190 runs in front of Rajasthan with the heroics of opener Ruturaj Gaikwad (101*) who scored his maiden IPL hundred. With this win, RR moved to the sixth spot in the points table and they have two more games left this year. If they win both matches with a better net run-rate, they will have a chance for a top-four finish while CSK are still on top of the points table. (SCORECARD)
IPL 2021 Highlights Between Rajasthan Royals vs Chennai Super Kings, Straight From Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi
Brilliant Chase By Rajasthan Royals!
What a chase that was from Rajasthan Royals, first the openers who added 77 runs for the first wicket and then Shivam Dube (64*) was the headline. Dube was making his comeback in the RR side and he was hitting the ball all-around ground. Before Dube, the young opener Yashasvi Jaiswal (50) got to his fifty in just 19 balls that set the base for the chase. Rajasthan chased down the 190-run target by 7 wickets and 15 balls remaining. This victory had also boosted their net run-rate. Earlier CSK opener Ruturaj Gaikwad got to his maiden IPL ton but in the end, he failed to be on the winning side.
