Vivo IPL Live Score, Rajasthan Royals vs Chennai Super Kings: CSK Look To Land Knockout Blow On RR

Vivo IPL Rajasthan Royals vs Chennai Super Kings Live Score: Rajasthan Royals (RR) is on 6th with 8 points, while Chennai Super Kings sit on the 2nd spot with 14 points.

Rajasthan Royals (RR) and Chennai Super Kings (CSK), the two teams that returned to the vivo IPL after serving bans in the aftermath of the 2013 spot-fixing scandal, will come face to face for the first time in the ongoing edition, keen to regain lost energy. A loss in their last outing has hurt both the former champions and they will plan to get back to winning ways when they face off. Rajasthan Royals are sixth with eight points, while CSK sit on the 2nd spot with 14 points. Both the teams were missing in battle owing to a 2 year ban for corruption. Rajasthan Royals, under new captain Ajinkya Rahane, had a bad start to the campaign but they have done well with 2 back-to-back wins before Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) outclassed them by 7 wickets. 

On a slow wicket, Rahane and Co. failed to stitch partnerships and ended up with a below-par total of 160-8 on board, which KKR chased down with expert ease, losing 3 wickets. Sanju Samson has been the batting star for Rajasthan Royal as he has scored 185 runs so far with an unbeaten 92-run innings being the highlight but he did not get the needed support from other batsmen. Rahane has made some positive contributions but he failed to capitalise on the starts. Their bowling unit, led by K Gowtham and Ben Laughlin, have completed well. They continued the onslaught by big hitters like Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers during their match against heavy-weight Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB). But England all-rounder Ben Stokes, who was bought for a whopping Rs 12.5 crore by Rajasthan Royals, has been a big let down and he desires to live up to the billing.
