Chennai Super Kings
Ov 20: W 0 1lb 1 W 1 ( 3 Runs, 2 Wkts )
A brilliant final over from Bravo. Rajasthan were looking likely to get the remaining runs but Bravo took two wickets, including the big one of Stokes, and only conceded two runs. It comes back to the start for Rajasthan when they were 14-3 and the middle-order had to build an innings against a quality attack. Stokes along with Tripathi and Smith added some handy runs but it wasn't enough. Tough start for Rajasthan who have started the season with three consecutive losses and they need to turn things around quickly. The defending champs though are now three wins from three and they look dangerous.
19.6 - D Bravo to J Archer
Length ball, outside off stump backing away Slog, mis-timed to extra cover for 1 run, fielded by Raina.
That will be the game. Gopal needs to swing the bat but he is not hitting them as clean as is required. Big loopy edge which travels all the way down to third man. Tahir is pumping up the crowd the only way he knows.
19.5 - D Bravo to S Gopal
Length ball, outside off stump backing away Slog, outside edge in the air uncontrolled to third man, by Tahir.
19.4 - D Bravo to J Archer
Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed to extra cover for 1 run, fielded by Raina.
11 from three deliveries. All over to you Archer.
19.3 - D Bravo to S Gopal
Off cutter short, outside off stump backing away hooking, hit body to backward point for 1 run, fielded by Raina.
19.2 - D Bravo to S Gopal
Back of a length, outside off stump backing away cutting, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Dhoni.
The game turns on its head once again. Perfect yorker in the blockhole and Stokes can't dig it out to get it past cover. Raina again at cover takes a smart catch.
19.1 - D Bravo to B Stokes
Yorker, outside off stump driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to extra cover, by Raina.
