Chennai Super Kings vs Rajasthan Royals

Rajasthan Royals who have won the toss, elected yo bat first against Chennai Super Kings.
On another sweltering day, Rajasthan Royals managed 146 on a slowish pitch at the MA Chidambaram Stadium. The cornerstone of the inning was Owais Shah's third half-century of the tournament, but it lacked the panache of his previous two efforts, leaving Chennai Super Kings with a total they will fancy chasing.
The highlights of Super Kings' bowling were R Ashwin's momentum-stalling spell after the Royals openers have provided a cracking start, and Nuwan Kulasekara's full-and-wide bowling at the death. Royals have been the most explosive side of the season in the final five overs of the innings, but they couldn't get the final flourish today as Kulasekara conceded only eight off the 18th and 20th over.

Rajasthan Royals innings 146/4(20.0overs)      R/R: 7.30
