Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals resume rivalry in Pune

But there was nothing slow about Chennai's start against Rajasthan, ever since Stuart Binny overstepped on the very first ball, and Shane Watson (106 off 57 balls) smashed him back over his head off the free-hit.

(G.N.S) DT.20 After a four day break, Chennai Super Kings will be back in action.

The onus was now on Mahendra Singh Dhoni's men to repay the faith, and it was Shane Watson who took the matter in his hand to light up the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium with a stroke-filled century on Friday (April 20).

However, all-rounder Ben Stokes, who was bought for a whopping Rs 12.5 crore, has failed to fire till now. Watson found a strong ally in Suresh Raina (46, 29b, 9x4). While CSK have had late flourishes from Dwayne Bravo, Sam Billings and MS Dhoni; young Sanju Samson has been a huge plus for the RR.

The train was arranged so that fans can witness the live performance of their favourite team in Pune where CSK is set to play their second home game against Ajinkya Rahane's Rajasthan Royals. As a result, the entire team got bowled out for 140 runs in 18.3 overs.

CSK openers started well before Rayudu fall to Ben Laughlin for 12 (8). The powerful allrounder then continued to showcase his supreme ball-striking ability as he took advantage of some wayward bowling from the visitors to finish with nine fours and six maximums, notching his third IPL century, and fourth T20 ton overall, before eventually falling on the penultimate delivery for 106. RR's spinners K Gowtham and Shreyas Gopal are in good form, they have managed to knock down key players like Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers, Brendon McCullum, Chris Lynn and Robin Uthappa, between them.

Although CSK and RR both have had some extraordinary moments in the matches they have played, it would be safe to say that they still are quite a distance away from their best cricket. The reward for his persistence were the wickets of Raina and MS Dhoni in successive overs. He has picked five wickets in 3 matches.

The 26-year-old opened alongside new skipper Ajinkya Rahane (16) and endured a disappointing debut, bowled by the impressive Shardul Thakur (2-18) after a run-a-ball seven. Then, Tripathi came out slogging, and holed out to deep midwicket.
