RR has defeated CSK for the second time in this IPL season by 32 runs, with Yashasvi Jaiswal's fifty at the top being the real game-changer for them, and Dhruv Jurel also played a brilliant cameo inning of 34 from just 15 balls to accelerate their team total to 202/5 at the end. All CSK pacers (Akash Singh, Tushar Deshpande & Matheesha Pathirana) were very expensive as they conceded 122 runs in just ten overs. Pathirana was unlucky, as his bowling figures didn't do justice to his phenomenal bowling.
CSK was struggling to score runs in the powerplay, unlike RR, as Sandeep Sharma and Kuldip Yadav were pretty brilliant and went on to finish their spell at an economy of 6 RPO. The spin duo of Zampa-Ashwin picked five wickets together in their bowling spell of seven overs. Ruturaj Gaikwad and Shivam Dube's futile effort with the bat wasn't enough for CSK to chase down a humongous score as there was no support from other players.
