CSK restrict Rajasthan Royals to 151/7

Press Trust of India  |  Jaipur 

produced yet another disciplined effort to restrict to a modest 151 for seven in an encounter here Thursday.

Save (23 off 10 balls) at the top of the order, none of other Royals batsmen looked the part as Mahendra Singh Dhoni's immaculate reading of the track once again helped the defending champions.

Left-arm spin duo Ravindra Jadeja (2/20 in 4 overs) and (1/25 in 4 overs) checked the run-flow as Royals batsmen were always playing a catch-up game.

Even (0/28 in 4 overs), who went for a few more runs compared to the other two spinners, ended with decent enough figures.

Royals skipper (14 off 11) failed once again with seamer (2/33 in 4 overs) trapping him leg before.

Buttler belted Shardul Thakur (2/44 in 4 overs) for a few boundaries before he mistiming one which was easily caught by Ambati Rayudu.

Once Buttler was gone, Royals lost the momentum as wickets fell at regular imtervals. (15,22 balls) struggled once again as he slog swept Ravindra Jadeja towards deep mid-wicket only to find Rayudu. Samson also top edged a sweep which was caught by

Rahul Tripathi's struggles in the middle-order continued while Ben Stokes' 28 off 26 balls wasn't good enough.

It was Shreyas Gopal, who struck a few meaty blows en route his 19 off 7 balls to take the target past 150 despite the home team playing as many as 42 dot balls.
