The Rajasthan Royals have emerged victorious in MS Dhoni’s home ground, thanks to the impressive performance of medium pacer Sandeep Sharma. The CSK icon was denied a win after Rajasthan’s spinners choked the run flow, leaving the opposition lost and struggling to keep up. The Rajasthan team had a missed opportunity when Moeen Ali dropped Padikkal at first slip on the first ball of Theekshana’s second over. This opened the floodgates for Rajasthan, who picked up 17, 12, 11, and 18 runs in the next four overs, leaving Chennai in a precarious position.
Conway and Ajinkya Rahane then stitched a 68-run partnership for the second wicket in just 7.1 overs, keeping the required run-rate within reach. However, this stand did not cause any major issues for Rajasthan, who went into recovery mode with Hetmyer providing the finishing touches to help the team pick up 40 runs off the last five overs.
Dhoni then turned back the clock, swatting medium pacer Sandeep Sharma for two successive sixes, leaving Rajasthan rattled for the first time.
In the end, it was Sandeep Sharma who held his nerve in the last over, denying Dhoni and securing a well-deserved win for Rajasthan Royals. The team celebrated their victory with great enthusiasm, leaving the crowd in awe of their impressive performance.
