Cricket news - Live Cricket Score - CSK vs RR, Match 37, IPL 2020
Jos Buttler scored an unbeaten 70
VICTORY FOR RAJASTHAN ROYALS!
Jos Buttler (70*) and Steve Smith (26*) put on an unbeaten 98-run stand to lead Rajasthan to an important victory. They first had to dig RR out of a hole and then ensure there were no hiccups later. They did both tasks with aplomb as Smith dug in while Buttler teed off.
This puts Chennai Super Kings back at the bottom of the points table! Even MS Dhoni thinks there's no way back from here. This is what he had to say: "It's about going back to the process, and then see if the process is wrong. We play in front of millions of people so there is nothing to hide. We're trying a few things. You don't want to chop and change. Insecurity is something you don't want to prevail in the dressing room. Fair enough, this season we weren't really there. Also the youngsters, we didn't see the spark to push the guys. But what this result has done is give those youngsters a chance in the rest of the tournament."
Fifty for Buttler!
It has come off just 37 balls, and his looked a class apart on a tricky pitch. He's now teeing off making some serious inroads into the target which is in the twenties now.
Buttler takes charge
Steve Smith has dropped anchor and is on 8 off 20 at the moment. But Jos Buttler is racing away at the other end having a strike-rate of 141! RR back on track.
Drama but Smith survives!
An LBW review does not go in CSK's favour, much to the surprise of Steve Smith himself! Smith seemed to have missed a straight delivery but the UltraEdge software picks up a small spike as the ball passed the bat. Smith himself was walking back looking at the initial replays but comes back, much to the relief of Rajasthan! They could have lost their fourth on 28!
Dhoni pulls off a stunner!
Deepak Chahar has his second but a big part of that wicket, of Sanju Samson for 0, was Dhoni. A glance down the legside is taken smartly diving down to his left and plucking it out with one hand!
WICKETS: Stokes and Uthappa depart
Deepak Chahar got the better of Stokes after being targeted for boundaries. A slightly shorter length results in Stokes chopping on for a 11-ball 19. A ball later, in the next over, Uthappa premeditates a scoop shot and ends up presenting a simple catch to Dhoni. RR 28/2 in 4 overs. This game isn't dead as yet!
Uthappa survives a review
Deepak Chahar gets an outswinger to beat the outside edge of Uthaooa and pushes an unconvinced Dhoni for a review. But the ball is shown to be clipping the stumps, so CSK don't lose a review but Uthappa stays in.
CSK finish with 125
The innings never got any momentum right through, and it'll be interesting to see how Rajasthan go about the chase on a used pitch. No batsman ever looked comfortable for CSK, and they'd be hoping that their bowlers too can deliver a performance like their counterparts.
WICKET: Dhoni run out for 28
He decided to run a second after a fumble by Jofra Archer but is caught inches short after a quick recovery by Archer. It ends a 50-run stand with Jadeja as well.
A slow rebuild
Dhoni and Jadeja have built a partnership akin to an ODI, with a lot of singles and doubles and the occasional boundary. Their 50-run stand has come off 46 balls.
Another one bites the dust
Rayudu doesn't make the most of a reprieve. He top edges a sweep against Rahul Tewatia to provide an easy catch. CSK 56/4 now.
Harsha Bhogle @bhogleharsha Brilliant in the middle overs from the leggies. 2-28(7). Amazing how little is spoken of Shreyas Gopal. Excellent cricketer 03:05 PM  Oct 10, 2020
Rayudu survives through a review!
Shreyas Gopal could have had two in two with Rayudu missing a googly. The on-field umpire was okay to send him off but with the third umpire brought in, Rayudu's stride comes to his rescue. The ball is tracked to be going down the legside.
WICKET: Curran's labored stay ends
A 25-ball 22 ends as Sam Curran is caught at long off against Shreyas Gopal. After being put on the backfoot early by Archer, Curran hardly got back his mojo. He finally departs in the 9th over with CSK having 53 on the board.
WICKET: Tyagi has the last laugh
There was a bit of a cat and mouse going on between one aged 19 and another aged 39. Watson pulled a boundary and then had a french cut going past the keeper off Tyagi. The pacer was not shy to have a quiet word in response, but soon gets his man with a full one angled in. Watson flicks straight to midwicket leaving CSK in a spot of bother.
WICKET: Archer gets Faf!
He might have roughed up the partner, but the wicket comes at the other end. Faf du Plessis tries to jump and guide a short ball through the offside but ends up chipping it above short cover where Buttler takes a good jumping catch. Archer 2-0-5-1!
The bouncer test for Curran
What did you expect from Jofra Archer? As predicted in our preview by Prakash G, the first few balls to Sam Curran has sharp and short. Jofra is buzzing!
TOSS: CSK opt to bat
Rajasthan Royals - Rajpoot in; Unadkat out
(Playing XI): Robin Uthappa, Ben Stokes, Sanju Samson(w), Steven Smith(c), Jos Buttler, Rahul Tewatia, Jofra Archer, Riyan Parag, Shreyas Gopal, Ankit Rajpoot, Kartik Tyagi

The lead up...
Now that the Super Over Sunday is done, anything from that is bound to look like a step down.
But there's still a lot of things to look forward to in this encounter. Both teams are at the bottom of the points table but are still in with a chance to make it to the top four. A win here is only going to keep them still in contention. So the stakes are high.
And there's also the small matter of MS Dhoni's 200th IPL game, if CSK were seeking any additional motivation...
