Right then! We have had a pretty one-sided game between Chennai and Rajasthan. It was never Chennai's game to win after they posted a weak total of 125. They started off the bowling well but then strayed away and Rajasthan won the game in the end with some ease. The action continues on Tuesday, the 20th of October, 2020 as Punjab lock horns with Delhi in Dubai. The game will begin at 1800 local (1400 GMT). Do join us for all the action. Until then, stay safe!
For his brilliant batting display, Jos Buttler has been named the Man of the Match. Buttler says that they let a couple of games slip and is happy to get this one over the line. Tells that he tries to come out with a bit of intensity and he was determined to come in and he managed to get a couple away which made him comfortable. Says you do not face a lot of balls in T20 cricket but one can take their time and settle in. On batting at no. 5, Buttler says he is happy to bat wherever the team wants him to.
Rajasthan skipper, Steven Smith, says that it was certainly a different game than the last time they met as Sharjah was a different ground. Adds that it was sticking on the pitch today. Credits his spinners for bowling well, adds that they bowled well in the Powerplay. Tells that Gopal has been good for them for the past 2 years and Tewatia has been good as well. Tells Buttler took the pressure of him and played a great innings. Admits he was not aware he edged it but tells Buttler told him and so did some of the boys in the dugout.
Rajasthan's speed merchant, Jofra Archer is caught for a chat. Archer says that it is good to bowl with some grass on it. Archer says it has been difficult in the bubble as there is not much motivation to go to the gym but they have to go for it as many have not played a game for a long time. Tells that he works on his core and works a little bit on weights in the gym. Smiles and says that he sledged Curran asking if he nicked one.
Chennai skipper, MS Dhoni says that there was something for the pace bowlers. Tells he brought Jadeja to see how much it was stopping but it did not. Feels that it was easier to bat in the second innings as the spinners were not getting the turn. Tells that the results are always a byproduct of the process. Adds that they are trying to address the issue. On changing the batting order, Dhoni says they have tried a few things and tells one does not want to do too much of chopping and changing as he feels it can create insecurity. Adds they want to give a fair chance. Tells they did try to give new guys a chance but they did not show that spark but feels that this loss will give those people a chance.
Earlier in the day, Chennai started off with the bat. Their batting never quite took off as they kept losing quick wickets right from the start of the game. Chennai were down by 4 wickets towards the 10th over. It was then their skipper, Dhoni and Jadeja who did well to steady the ship but their pace was really slow and they were not able to capitalize. Jadeja added some important runs in the end but the total was very low and in the end, they were probably 25-30 runs short. The bowling by Rajasthan was very good on the night. Apart from Stokes, all their bowlers were economical and made things difficult for the batters of Chennai. All things considered, this was a very good show by Rajasthan.
The bowling by Chennai was not the best on the night but with a tame total of 125 on the board, you can't really point your fingers at the bowling. They started off well though, as Chahar scalped 2 wickets and Hazlewood picked a wicket in the Powerplay. But the bowling fizzed out in the middle overs and then the batting duo of Smith and Buttler took over. They could have tried to be more aggressive in the middle overs and they could have tried to get rid of one of the batters out there. Dhoni also got spin a little late on and maybe things might have been a little different if the spin attack was introduced early. Overall, not the best performance from the boys from Chennai.
Rajasthan started off in the worst way possible as they lost Stokes very early on. He was looking good but he lost his wicket early once again. Uthappa and Samson, both followed him back pretty quickly and Rajasthan were three wickets down in the Powerplay. It was then, the batting duo of Buttler and Smith who stitched a good partnership of 98 runs and made sure that the game was wrapped up by them.
This total had to be chased down by Rajasthan as this was a low score and they have made sure that they do chase it down. It was a bit tough in the start as they lost three quick wickets, but the Aussie-Englishman combo of Steven Smith and Jos Buttler, with a partnership of 98 runs have made sure that the total was chased down in the end with some ease. Steven Smith will be a happy captain tonight.

DRINKS! This total had to be chased down by Rajasthan as the total was a tame one and it does look like they will chase it down with some ease in the end. They just require 14 runs in the last 4 overs and with Buttler and Smith out in the middle, it looks like this will be chased down without any hitches. Chennai, can apply some pressure by scalping a wicket but it looks like this game is done and dusted.

Josh Hazlewood To Steven Smith
NOT OUT! Dhoni asked if there was an edge, he was told there was not but turns out there was. Smith has been saved by just a feather. Full ball pitching on off and it comes back in. Smith looks to flick but shuffling across in his usual way. He misses and gets hit on the pad. There is a huge appeal but the umpire turns it down. After a brief thought, Dhoni takes it upstairs. Replay rolls in and Ultra Edge shows there is a spike. Even Smith is surprised by that as he was walking back.
Appeal for an LBW against Smith. The umpire does not agree and Dhoni asks his bowler is there an edge? The bowler says no and after some thought, MS has decided to take it upstairs.

OUT! CAUGHT! WHAT A CATCH! MS Dhoni, you beauty! Brilliant from the young MS Dhoni! On the pads and shaping away. Samson looks to flick but tickles it to the left of Dhoni. He dives and takes a stunning one-handed catch. This game has turned on its head. Looks like it was ages ago, when Stokes was smashing it. Duck for Sanju and his tournament that started so well is turning out to be a disastrous one.  98 needed in 93 balls.

Josh Hazlewood To Robin Uthappa OUT!
OUT! CAUGHT! Chennai striking back with wickets here. A very audacious shot from Uthappa. It was not needed at all at this stage. That is the thing with such strokes, when they come off, you look cool but when they don't, you look very bad. Good length ball around off, Uthappa looks to scoop it over the keeper by shuffling inside the stumps. The ball bounces a bit more than he anticipated as Hazlewood is a tall man. It hits the top part of the bat and lobs it behind to the keeper. One of the easiest catches, MS Dhoni would have taken in his life.

Fuller on off and middle, Uthappa chips it over mid on and gets a couple.
Who will walk out at number 3? Sanju Samson is the man at number 3!

Deepak Chahar To Ben Stokes OUT!
OUT! TIMBER! What a comeback delivery and outcome this is for Chahar! Chennai needed a breakthrough right at the start and they have got just that. The very dangerous Englishman Stokes is walking balk to the hut. You could hear a squeal from Stokes as he seemed very disappointed with this outcome. Chahar dishes a back of a length ball around off, Stokes looks to work this one to the off side, it comes off the inside edge and goes onto disturb the stumps behind him.

Deepak Chahar To Robin Uthappa
NOT OUT! Umpire's call! No blame on Chahar as the review is retained. Good length ball pitching on middle and is shaping away. Uthappa looks to flick but misses. The ball hits his pad and the Chennai players appeal. The umpire though turns it down. Chahar convinces Dhoni to refer it. Replay rolls in and Ball Tracker shows that the ball is clipping the top of off but not enough to reverse the on-field call.
Chennai have taken a review for LBW against Uthappa. Chahar was dead sure he had his man. Dhoni, though was hesitant. After a few words, Dhoni signals the 'T'.

FIVE OVERTHROWS! Ohh this is nightmare start for Chennai defending 125!  Good length ball on off, Stokes plays it to point and takes a quick single. Rayudu sends a throw at the bowler's end which is not needed at all. It misses the stumps and there is no back up. The ball goes to the fence.
