CSK vs RR: Fortress Breached as RR pinch an narrow win!

Another last ball finish, Another thriller at the IPL 2024!.. But it was some finish from Jadeja and Dhoni! Vintage Dhoni got the crowd going! With 54 needed off last 3 overs, they have fallen short by only 3 runs. In all, CSK left too much to chase in the final 5. A heap of appreciation for Sandeep Sharma who held his nerve in the last over nailing his yorker. RR win their second game at Chepauk. RR move to the top of the table!

50 and out for Conway, brings MSD to the crease!

Wickets tumbling, Conway departs after completing his 50. 3 wickets in last 8 balls. The req rate is 12.60. The captain comes to the crease and the crowd erupts. CSK need 63 runs off last 5 overs!.. Jadeja and Dhoni at crease!

Moeen Ali falls too!

CSK loose another wicket in trying up the ante. Moeen Ali is the latest one to fall. The impact player is in for CSK, Rayudu for Magala!..

The impact player goes too, falls to Chahal! RR chipping away! CSK 5 down now!!.. 73 runs needed from 35 balls with 5 wickets in hand!

Ash gets Dube!

Ash is doing a Jadeja here!! turning the game in RR’s favor. He traps Shivam Dube in crease with smart bowling getting him leg before. BIG REVEAL!!! The ball spun enough to miss the leg stump!! CSK didn’t review this!!! Anyhow 3 down now, Moeen Ali and Devon Conway at the crease. Is the game slipping away from CSK? They need 83 off 48!

CSK vs RR: Match set in Balance at the Halfway stage!

Ashwin has trapped the free flowing Rahane in front of wicket while sweeping. Rajasthan have kept things tight with bowl with odd loose deliveries. Chennai Super Kings have kept ticking away rotating strike and minimizing dot balls. Devon Conway and Shivam Dube are at the crease. CSK are 80/2 after 10 overs, needing 96 runs more! Just like last three nights, this could go down to the last over! This match is right in the balance.

45 off the powerplay!

Rajasthan have won the powerplay. Giving away at 7.50 RPO and picking up the inform batter’s wicket. They have kept things tight forcing the CSK batters to take some risk. A few glorious shots and some miscues save yielded them 45 runs in powerplay. CSK need 131 runs more from 84 balls with 9 wickets in hand!

Gaikwad removed cheaply!

Sandeep Sharma sends the opening batter packing in absence of Trent Boult. Big wicket for Rajasthan as the inform batter is back in the hut. It was angled in on the pads and he gets an massive top edge lofting it to Yashasvi Jaiswal. CSK 10/1

CSK vs RR: Innings Break!

A decent effort by CSK bowlers. RR finish with 175/8. It felt they would get more when Padikkal and Buttler were playing but Jadeja turned the game by picking Padikkal and Samson. In the end an cameo from Hetmyer took them past 170. Spin doing the trick again for CSK.

The target for CSK is 176 runs. CSK would hope dew makes an entry as Rajasthan have smartly strengthened their spin department by adding Zampa as an impact player. They also have quality spin in Ashwin and Chahal.

Will CSK chase this down??.. They must go hard in the powerplay because they don’t know for sure if dew will come in.. For RR they must bring Ashwin early to extract the returns from the wicket!… Another cracker of an encounters seems to be in making!!

Impact Player (RR): Adam Zampa in for Jos Buttler.

Slog and Miss!

Moeen Ali got the huge wicket of Jos Buttler. Buttler goes for a big slogsweep and misses, the ball turns back in to hit off-stump. No celebrations from Moeen Ali. He has had an awful night on the field, this should cheer him up a bit!

Buttler notches up another fifty!

Jos Buttler brings up his fifty off 33 balls. He was 36 off 18 at one stage. Can he finish strong for RR? … Last 4 overs coming up with RR 141/4

CSK vs RR: Last 5 overs coming up!

The middle phase ended with Akash Singh dismissing Ashwin, claiming his maiden IPL wicket. Though Ashwin has done his job. He started slow, but unleashed his shot against the young pacer to smash him for two sixes. RR recover a little momentum after a quite period. Buttler is at the crease, and Hetmyer joins him in the middle. The perfect pair for RR to finish this innings.

RR are 135/4 after 15 overs.. how many will they end up with?

CSK vs RR: Mid Innings Update!

The 9th over bowled by Ravindra Jadeja has just pulled it back a bit. Padikkal was going great guns and Buttler had started to tee off. He got Padikkal and Samson in a space of 3 deliveries. RR are 95/3 after 10 over. Jos Buttler and R Ashwin at crease. This is the third time Ashwin is batting at No.5 in the IPL. The last instance came against CSK at Brabourne last year.

Also, Jadeja has completed 200 wickets in T20 cricket!

Jadeja breaks the partnership!

The Chennai Super Kings needed that wicket very badly. The two were stepping on the accelerator and going after spin. They took Jadeja for 11 and Moeen for 18 off successive overs. The partnership was looking dangerous untill Jadeja broke it by dismissing Padikkal, Very smarlty he pushed this wide making him fetch the slogsweep resulting in a top edge and an easy catch to Conway.

And another one, 2 quick wickets for Jadeja. Now he has knocked over Sanju Samson.  What a cracker. Samson falls for a duck again. Almost had the third one, Moeen drops another one at slips. RR – 88/3 (9 overs).

Powerplay Done, RR 57/1

Rajasthan are off to a decent start, not a flyer this time but a quick one! Devdutt Padikkal is going great gun racing to 30 off 18. A bit of luck favoured Padikkal when Moeen Ali dropped a tough chance at first slip in the fifth over. Jos Buttler has been rotating strike at the other end and has completed 3000 runs in IPL. Rajasthan have made a positive start in the powerplay and promoting Padikkal to no. 3 is turning out to be a masterstroke.

Jaiswal gone, Deshpande strikes!

A back of length delivery caught the top edge of Yashasvi Jaiswal’s bat giving Shivam Dube an easy catch. CSK strike early! Important strike given the form of two openers. RR are 12/1 after 2 overs.

Boult to miss the clash due to a niggle!

Trent Boult will miss today’s clash due to a niggle. Happy signs for Gaikwad I guess, as Boult has dismissed him thrice in 21 deliveries. Gaikwad has only managed 11 runs against him.

Pitch Report

Lots of cracks, not a lot of grass. The surface is firm enough here but fully expect the spinners and cutters to play a major role in this type of surface. The way the openers approach the game in the powerplay can have an impact on the game. It is going to turn and there will be a bit of bounce too… says Nick Knight in Pitch Report.


Chennai Super Kings, under skipper MS Dhoni, are gearing up for a challenging encounter in their fourth match of the Indian Premier League 2024 season. The Yellow-outfit will take on last season’s runners-up, Rajasthan Royals, at Chennai’s MA Chidambaram Stadium. Follow this feed for CSK vs RR, IPL 2024 Match 17 – Live Cricket Score and Update.

The Rajasthan side has India’s highest-quality offspinner and leg spinner, and playing the combination on a turning pitch is going to be a challenge for any team. MS Dhoni-led squad defeated their arch-rivals Mumbai Indians by seven wickets.  A competition in which their spin combination of Mitchell Santner and Ravindra Jadeja played a significant role. A spin heavy battle is on cards.

Well this match will see MS Dhoni captaining Chennai Super Kings for the 200th time. A special felicitation took place before the start of the game. Can Thala celebrate this milestone with a win?
