RR vs CSK Safe Victory Highlights
In Sharjah and we got what we think – a high-scoring match. RR overrule CSK by 16 runs, but it could have been a lot closer had Dhoni shown a little more urgency in the last overs. Samson in the first innings so good, some of the sixes that he hit were just pure good. Archer gave them the perfect end with four consecutive sixes in the finishing over. CSK is always behind the eight balls in the chase and Tewatia made it more hard with some quick wickets in the mid overs. A good opening for RR to the league.
What MS Dhoni’s Opinion Of the Scoreboard? RR vs CSK
“With 217 onboard, we needed to have a good start. Once you’ve seen the first innings, you know the length to bowl. Their spinners did well to bowl away from the batsman. We could have controlled no-balls. I haven’t batted in a very long time (reasons for coming down the order). The 14-day quarantine doesn’t help.”.
Faf’s lone battle comes to an end after a knock of 72 off 37. The short delivery from Archer was too close to pull, but Faf still went for it and top-edged it to the keeper. Ten from the over. Thirty-six needed from last around.
