Ben Stokes to Ravindra Jadeja. Full toss, to leg on the front foot working, inside edge to short fine leg for 1 run, fielded by Tyagi. Chennai Super Kings have managed to make 125 for the loss of five wickets after 20 overs. Excellent bowling by Rajasthan Royals in restricting CSK to a below-par total. Ravindra Jadeja top-scored with 35. For RR, Jofra Archer, Kartik Tyagi, Shreyas Gopal and Rahul Tewatia picked up a wicket each. Chasing down a target of 126 would be an easy day at work for RR any day. Will CSK's bowlers surprise us? Let's wait and see.

OUT! Run Out. Kartik Tyagi to MS Dhoni. Half volley, outside off stump Deep in crease driving, to long off for 1 run, fielded by Archer, by Samson. Run Out! Goodness, gracious! What happened there? Hare-brained running has cost CSK a wicket here, that too of experienced MSD. Dhoni drives it towards long-off. Archer mid-fields it again but comes up with a decent throw to the keeper's end. Dhoni is a few inches short of his crease. A dive would have saved his wicket. Almost a carbon copy of Dhoni's run out in the 2019 WC against England. It's getting bad to worse for the Super Kings.
