It all started with grand news for RR when Shane Watson announced himself fit to play very crucial match vs CSK. And how did it matter? Rajasthan Royals made it look like a cake-walk by winning against the strongest team of IPL!
CSK won the toss and elected to bat first. They started strong only to fall prey to RR’s 7 player bowlers. Tambe initiated the downfall of CSK innings by taking down McCullum. The first 4 wickets fell at regular intervals making it difficult for CSK to build huge partnership. However, Bravo and Dhoni steadied the innings helping CSK reach the score of 156.
Watson rotated the bowlers frequently ensuring no CSK batsmen would settle. It helped RR that did not have to chase humongous total against CSK’s strong bowling.
While chasing, Rahane & Watson played unbelievable innings….
