CSK vs RR - M30 Report & Stats: IPL 2013

Match Report:

Shane Watson's century went in vain for Rajasthan Royals as they lost to Chennai Super Kings by five wickets at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai. The visitors posted a mammoth 186, but CSK, led by Michael Hussey's heroics chased down the target in the final over.

Chasing a stiff 187, Hussey started aggressively smashing consecutive boundaries off Rahul Shukla's second over before stepping out to hit a six off Ajit Chandila. Murali Vijay (3) perished to Chandila couple of balls later, caught and bowled. 

CSK however continued to attack with three boundaries off Shukla's fourth. Kevon Cooper was deposited into the crowd by Suresh Raina in the sixth before Hussey carved him away for a boundary.

At the halfway stage CSK were 92 for 1. James Faulkner broke the 90-run second wicket partnership trapping Raina (51) leg before. Needing 47 runs from the last five overs, Hussey (88) hit three boundaries off Cooper before being run out by a direct hit from Rahul Dravid. Faulkner then rattled the stumps of Ravindra Jadeja (0). 

MS Dhoni kept CSK in the chase and hit a boundary in the 18th over to bring the equation to 17 off 12. Faulkner struck again having MS Dhoni (21) caught by Binny leaving CSK to get 11 runs off the final over. Bravo (13*) hit a six off Watson and scampered a couple to see CSK home with a ball remaining. 

Earlier RR won the toss and chose to bat. Watson started with a boundary off the first delivery. He hit Mohit Sharma for the first six in the third over before pulling Chris Morris over the fence in the fifth as RR plundered 55 runs from their power play overs. Watson continued his attack sweeping Jadeja for a boundary before thumping a massive six to bring up his fifty in just 29 balls. Ravichandran Ashwin got the important breakthrough as he got the ball to spin sharply and crash into Ajinkya Rahane's (16) stumps.

Ashwin struck again dismissing Dishant Yagnik (7) caught and bowled. Dravid (7) was out deceived by a Dwayne Bravo slower ball, giving CSK their third wicket. 

However, Watson (102) relentless in his attack launched Jadeja for two huge sixes in the 17th over. He brought up the first century of the season in the next over before being caught by Hussey off Bravo soon after. Binny (36*) continued the assault, and some hefty blows saw RR reach 186 for 4 from 20 overs.

Presentation:

Hussey is the Man of the Match. Hussey: "Good batting condtions, best batting pitch we have had here this season. Needed a bit of luck along the way. Suresh was in the zone today, was finding the boundary at will."

Dhoni: "When opposition scores 185, 90% it will go into the last over. It got close but Bravo did well. Hussey gave the start, he and Raina gave us the platform. Always important to win at home as you know the conditions better. Was a good wicket, groundsmen are trying their best and we are trying to adapt."

Rahul Dravid: "Very pleased [with 185]. One of the finest T20 innings from Watto, in humid conditions. Early on, we missed it a bit [with the ball]. You felt they always had the team. Every time we got a wicket, someone came in and got a six."

Shane Watson: "Few things went my way with the bat but you'd take that back for a win. We knew that was a lot of runs on that wicket but we knew they have a long batting order and we would have to bowl well, but we could not execute well. [My bowling] has been something I have been missing last three months, could not do it today. Hopefully it will come out better."
