That is it from this game! Chennai have thumped Rajasthan to make it two wins on the bounce. Samson's Rajasthan will look to bounce back stronger from this loss in their next game. The action continues on Tuesday, 20th January as it is the repeat of last season's final. Delhi will look to avenge for that loss as they take on defending champions Mumbai. That game will begin at 1930 IST (1400 GMT). Make sure you join us for it. Till then, goodbye!
Sam Curran says that they started off badly  but says they have assesed the conditions well. Tells that the way they played with their long bayting line up was great. Curran says that the wicket has been slower which has helped them. Curran says that when trying to defend a batsman will always come at you and one needs to be sensible with their lines. Credits Jadeja's fielding. Curran says that with such a long batting line up it gives them freedom.
Man of the Match, Moeen Ali, says the number 3 for England is the number player in the world, here he has a role at number 3 to come out and hit it big. States he does not try and over hit the ball, it was a nice wicket to bat on and he enjoyed it. Adds he enjoyed batting and bowling and it was a fantastic time for him to bowl as there were two left-ganders out there. States he knew he would get the ball once the left-ganders were out there. Adds that the drier ball helped abs it was a good wicket for the spinners.
Chennai skipper, MS Dhoni, says he always looks at what is best to do at that time and Curran and Chahar knew what to do then. States Curran bowled well but Deepak did not read the pitch really well but both bowled well and they did not let the opposition get off to a flier. Adds the wet ball was also spinning, he wanted Jadeja to bowl up and the chances of a drier ball turning was more. States it always helps to have a 6th bowler, it was stopping a little abs there was less dew. Mentions it is about adapting to the conditions, if they’re pacers get some turn then their spinners will also get some. Ends by saying he doesn’t want anyone to tell him he’s unfit when he’s playing and he has to keep up with the younger guys.
Rajasthan skipper, Sanju Samson, says that he thought it was a good score to chase but feels they lost too many wickets in the middle. Samson says that the bowlers bowled well and Chennai bat deep. Feels they might have given 10-15 runs. Samson says they never expected spin to play such a part. Adds he was shocked to see the ball spin. Samson says that it is important to maintain composure as this comeptition demands to score runs. Tells he keeps working on his basics and give himself time in the middle. Tells Sakariya has been doing well and adds there are lots of positives.
It was a complete performance by Chennai though. Contribution from almost all their batters saw them get close to 190 on a wicket which seemed a little tacky. In reply, Buttler was the only batter for Rajasthan who showed some fight but the spin-twins did the job for Dhoni.
The spinners did the trick for Chennai, yes Curran got two at the top but it was Jadeja and Moeen who wrecked havoc. They finished with 5 in total and their overs killed the game completely.
They did lose Samson and Vohra in the Powerplay but Buttler and Dube kept them in the chase. They needed a little over 100 heading into the last 10 but that is where the game changed. Actually change of balls changed the game. After a six was hit, the ball was changed and the drier ball just started to grip a lot more and that was the undoing of Buttler. Once he fell, the procession started and in no time, it became an impossible chase for them.
So finally a total is defended by a team at the Wankhede! It did seem a tacky wicket but the Rajasthan innings just fell apart.
