Cricket Highlights, 13 May IPL 2024 (Match 61) – Chennai Super Kings vs Rajasthan Royals

Chennai Super Kings vs Rajasthan Royals (Match 61) – Highlights


The Chennai Super Kings (CSK) bowlers did enough hard work by restricting the Rajasthan Royals (RR) team to just 141 runs, RR is known for being made up of devastating batsmen. CSK’s batsmen made no big mistakes despite getting pushed to chase the target. Ruturaj Gaikwad’s team stays in the play-off fight with an easy win.


Chennai Super Kings defeated Rajasthan Royals by 5 wickets at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai on Sunday (May 12). Batting first, Rajasthan Royals gave CSK a target of 142 runs. In response, the Super Kings reached the port of victory with 9 balls in hand.


CSK got off to a good start with Rachin Ravindra and Ruturaj coming down to chase the target. Ravindra scored 27 runs from 18 balls and was dismissed for 32 runs. Daryl Mitchell, who is in great form, scored 22 runs off 13 balls on the day.


The team needed 75 off 73 balls when Mitchell returned to the dugout after being left lbw by Yuzvendra Chahal. Despite getting an easy target and batting carefully, Super Kings kept losing wickets regularly. Moeen Ali scored 10 runs off 13 balls and was dismissed by Nandre Burger. Shivam Dube got off to a good start, but his innings ended at 18 runs.


Ravindra Jadeja got out strangely. He got out for obstructing the field after a misunderstanding with Ruturaj while trying to take a single. In the 16th over of the innings, Jadeja started the run by pushing Avesh Khan’s ball to third man. On the other hand, Ruturaj was hesitant. At one stage of misunderstanding, Jadeja was going towards non-striking.


RR’s wicketkeeper Sanju Samson took the ball and threw it, which bounced off Jadeja. The umpire responded when RR appealed for an out. The third umpire confirmed that Jadeja had seen the trajectory of the ball while spinning, he deliberately prevented the ball from hitting the stumps. After 2019, this is the first time such an out was seen in IPL. This is the third time in the history of the tournament.


Jadeja’s departure, however, did not cause much damage to Super Kings. Sameer Rizvi batted wildly after coming to the wicket. He did not let the game go till the last over by scoring 15 runs off 8 balls. Ruturaj was on the wicket from start to finish. He scored 42 runs hitting 2 sixes and 1 four.
