CSK vs RR Live Score, IPL 2021, Match 12: Chetan Sakariya takes three wickets as CSK put up 188/9
IPL 2021, Live Cricket Score, Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Rajasthan Royals (RR):
Fizz bowls the final over, starting with a searing yorker that Curran taps towards extra cover, falling well short of the striker’s end while making his way back for a second run. Fizz oversteps in the next delivery, but does well to restrict Bravo to just two in the free hit. Bravo nearly offers a catch off a skier off the third delivery, the ball landing between two fielders near long on, with the batsman nearly getting run out during his second run. Thakur’s stranded at the striker’s end along with Bravo after the latter refuses to set off for a run resulting in Chennai losing their ninth. The Trinidadian then finishes off in style, collecting a double off the fifth before smashing the ball over long on for a huge six to end the innings.
Preview: Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Rajasthan Royals (RR) enter the 12th game of Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 in an upbeat frame of mind, both sides having won their previous encounters.
The two teams had occupied the last two slots in the points table last season, with CSK (7th) failing to qualify for the IPL playoffs for the first time in the history of the league. This season, the start has been a mixed one for both camps with a victory and a defeat each.
Rajasthan began the season with a heart-breaking loss to Punjab Kings, in which newly-appointed captain Sanju Samson nearly guided the team home with a magnificent 119 in a difficult 222-run chase, almost pulling off an encore of their famous triumph at Sharjah against the same opponents last year. Their next game however, saw several more members making winning contributions, as Jaydev Unadkat’s superb figures of 4/13 along with the batting contributions of David Miller (62) and Chris Morris (36 not out) helped them win a thriller against Delhi Capitals.
Like Rajasthan, Chennai began the campaign with a defeat as they barely had any answer to the combined brilliance of Delhi openers Shikhar Dhawan (85*) and Prithvi Shaw (72) — who made the 189-run chase appear a walk in the park. It was their bowling unit however, that was at its clinical best in their next game against Punjab, restricting KL Rahul’s side to a modest 106/8 that was easily overhauled by the three-time champions.
