Ball by Ball Live Score Commentary

End of Over No.20 Rajasthan Royals 167/8 Last Over (3 runs)

That’s all from us. See you tomorrow, good night.

Rummy: “Lot of credit to Dhoni for his super innings and his captaincy by shuffling his bowler’s with the heavy dew in play. ”

MS Dhoni:We wanted to get a partnership going, it was needed at the time, we knew there’d be dew. Bhaji missed the match because there were quite a few right handers. Just hoping the batsmen can keep performing and bowlers can improve as the tournament progresses, which tends to happen in the IPL. It was very difficult for the finger spinners with the dew, but we were able to rotate, the legspinner bowled really well, as a wrist spinner with the dew, Tahir did really well.

Harsh: “CSK and their habit of making every match a nail biter is going to give me a heart attack one day. Not easy being a CSKian”

Ajinkya Rahane: Disappointed, we started off well, overall what cost us were the last five overs with the ball. Even batting, with the dew the target was chaseable. We need to win smaller moments, we’ve been playing good cricket, some luck with us can change the tide

12.10am, April 1: This isn’t an April Fool’s joke. Chennai Super Kings have made it three wins from three matches, despite being 28 for 3 in their first innings. Dhoni’s masterclass earlier, followed up by an excellent bowling performance from their pacers and Tahir have ensured that the defending champions move to the top of the points table. Captain Cool delivers again, and it seems like his attitude has rubbed onto his younger boys as well. Excellent 19th from Shardul, Deepak Chahar was excellent in the Powerplay too. We’ll have the reactions and presentation very soon. Stick around.

Raunak: “Stokes and Jofra gave CSK quite a scare”

19.6 1 Bravo to Archer length ball, on off, and flat-batted to cover. They scamper across for a single and Chennai Super Kings win by eight runs! 1 run

Sharma: “Why did Joffra take a single? Should have kept strike. That was not clever. ”

Girish: “Both teams with ‘Royal’ in their name are yet to open their account in points table!”

19.5 W Bravo to Gopal in the air and taken at third man! Tahir takes the catch, and he gives the crowd a flying kiss. The Chepauk erupts. Length ball, on off, and Gopal’s attempted slog takes an outside edge OUT
S Gopal c Imran Tahir b Bravo 0 (3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Is that the end of Royals’ challenge?

19.4 1 Bravo to Archer full and very wide outside off, and Jofra mistimes a drive to cover. Walks across for a single. His bat is broken too 1 run

CSK taking their time.

19.3 1 Bravo to Gopal back of a length on middle, and the ball hits Gopal’s shoulders. Delivery rolls down to third man 1 leg bye

Royals need 12 off four. Crowd shouting Bravo, Bravo

19.2 . Bravo to Gopal back of a length, on off, and Gopal backs away to cut this square. Ball goes over Gopal’s bat. Nifty from Bravo no run

Our forecast has Royals’ chances at 16% now. That was a big wicket. Shreyas Gopal’s here. He can swing the bat too

Chet: “If only someone else would have bowled that last over instead of Jaydev Unadkat. If only”

19.1 W Bravo to Stokes soft dismissal! Chinna Thala to the rescue. Low full toss on off, and Stokes tries to lift it over cover, but he’s sliced this to Raina at cover OUT
BA Stokes c Raina b Bravo 46 (26b 1×4 3×6) SR: 176.92

Eleven needed for the Super Over. Twelve for Royals to win. Ten or less, and Chennai win. Royals have clawed back very well here. And looks like DJ Bravo will bowl the 20th over

Parikshith Hari: “What’s cricinfo’s prediction showing now? Please let us know sreshth” – 31% chance for Royals

End of Over No.19 Rajasthan Royals 164/6 Last Over (13 runs)

18.6 1 Thakur to Stokes back of a length, outside off, and he drags a pull to deep midwicket. Royals need 12 off the final over 1 run

important delivery…

18.5 2 Thakur to Stokes low full toss on off, and he drills a drive to extra cover. Shorey cleans up 2 runs

Umair: “At the beginning of the match, I had predicted csk will win by 2 runs. No one publishes my comment.”

18.4 6 Thakur to Stokes one-handed shot for six! Holy moly. Length ball angling into Stokes from around the wicket, but he uses his wrists and swivels to pull behind square. One hand comes off his bat, but enough power behind that to go for a maximum. Unbelievable SIX

Royals need 21 off nine balls

18.3 1 Thakur to Archer back of a length on middle, but slower from Shardul. Jofra pulls behind square to deep fine leg 1 run
18.2 2 Thakur to Archer sliced over point and falls safe. Full outside off, and looked to drive over cover, but edged the ball behind square instead 2 runs

Cat-and-mouse stuff. Shardul pulls out of his run-up

18.1 1 Thakur to Stokes full on off, and angling into Stokes. He skips down the wicket to try and muscle this over to the leg side, but inside-edges the shot into his pads. They scamper across for one 1 leg bye

Another ball change

End of Over No.18 Rajasthan Royals 151/6 Last Over (19 runs)

17.6 . Bravo to Archer yorker just outside leg stump, but the ball hits his boot and rolls away to Dhoni. Could’ve been a wide if Jofra got out of the delivery’s way. Royals need 25 off 12 now no run
17.5 6 Bravo to Archer that’s outta here! Full, not fast enough on middle, and he clears his front leg to hammer a six over Bravo’s head. This guy can bat SIX
17.4 2 Bravo to Archer low full toss on middle, and he flicks to deep midwicket. Calls early for the second, and both these men are pretty quick 2 runs
17.3 1 Bravo to Stokes slower ball, full on off, and he mistimes a drive to cover. Raina dives to his left to intercept, and stops Stokes from coming back on strike 1 run
17.2 4 Bravo to Stokes paddled! Back of a length on middle, but Stokes shuffles across the stumps, exposes all three stumps, and then gets enough bat to find the gap between keeper and short fine leg FOUR

Long off goes back. Deep point too.

17.1 6 Bravo to Stokes slapped! Slower ball, really full outside off, and he clears his front leg, before flat-batting a six over wide long off. Royals need 38 off 17 SIX

End of Over No.17 Rajasthan Royals 132/6 Last Over (12 runs)

16.6 6 Thakur to Archer muscled over long on! Quick ball, full on leg, but he clears his front leg to lift a shot over the boundary. Royals need 44 off 18 SIX
16.5 . Thakur to Archer length ball, skidder outside off, and going straight into Dhoni’s gloves. Jofra can’t get bat on ball no run
16.4 1 Thakur to Stokes length ball, just outside off, and he drives away from his body to extra cover 1 run
16.3 1 Thakur to Archer back of a length on middle, and he taps this away to the leg side for a quick single. Good dedication from Shardul, chasing the ball 1 run
16.2 4 Thakur to Archer length ball, wide outside off, and cut square to the point boundary! Fielder from third man can’t intercept FOUR

Robin: “Will Dhoni receive a penalty like Rohit did for not completing the innings on the time? This match is probably going to end at midnight most likely. ” — If the umpires believe it was avoidable, then yes.

16.1 W Thakur to Gowtham sliced to cover! Full just outside off, and Gowtham looks to smoke a drive over cover. Bat’s face turns in his hand, and the spliced shot goes to Raina at the 30-yard circle OUT
K Gowtham c Raina b Thakur 9 (8b 0x4 1×6) SR: 112.50

Royals need 14 per over. Shardul Thakur’s coming back. Will Royals take him on?

End of Over No.16 Rajasthan Royals 120/5 Last Over (9 runs)

15.6 1 Imran Tahir to Gowtham length ball on off, and driven down to long off. Tahir nearly gets his hands to this. An excellent spell comes to an end 1 run

There are fireworks going off above the stadium. Wonder why. The game was supposed to end by now, so were the fireworks timer operated?

15.5 1 Imran Tahir to Stokes full toss, low on off stump, and drilled down to long off 1 run
15.4 1 Imran Tahir to Gowtham faster ball, flat on middle, and the attempted nudge to the leg side takes a leading edge to short third man! 1 run
15.3 . Imran Tahir to Gowtham full outside leg, but turning into his pads. Gowtham looks to nudge it square, but the ball hits his pad no run
15.2 . Imran Tahir to Gowtham crazy spin! Full, wide outside off, and Gowtham goes for a slogged sweep. But the ball spins further away from Gowtham, and Dhoni collects sharply no run
15.1 6 Imran Tahir to Gowtham that’s a biggie! Full on off, and Gowtham – the offspinner – picks the googly well. Swings across the line, and has enough behind that shot to clear wide long on SIX
