In a span of two overs, RR lost Manan Vohra and Sanju Samson with the score reading only 45/2 as Sam Curran became a difficult bowler to play. But Buttler finally delivered when the team needed him the most. But fell a run short of scoring a fine half-century after a stunner from Ravindra Jadeja trapped him leg before. His wicket triggered a collapse as RR lost five quick wickets.

Moeen Ali and Ravindra Jadeja were the two wreckers in chiefs as the duo scalped five wickets combined. Moeen Ali bagged three wickets in 2 overs, giving away only 3 runs.

Chennai Super Kings (Playing XI): Ruturaj Gaikwad, Faf du Plessis, Moeen Ali, Suresh Raina, Ambati Rayudu, Sam Curran, MS Dhoni(w/c), Ravindra Jadeja, Dwayne Bravo, Shardul Thakur, Deepak Chahar

Rajasthan Royals (Playing XI): Jos Buttler, Manan Vohra, Sanju Samson(w/c), Shivam Dube, David Miller, Riyan Parag, Rahul Tewatia, Chris Morris, Jaydev Unadkat, Chetan Sakariya, Mustafizur Rahman

MS Dhoni: No changes for us. Same team. Getting out on good deliveries is okay. Last year would have taught him (Ruturaj) on the highs and lows. As support staff, you can motivate all you want but once you are out there, you are on your own. The pitch looks a bit tacky to start with. Needs to assess things as it comes and also need to keep an eye out on the dew.

Rajasthan Royals have won the toss and have opted to field

Sanju Samson: We’re going to bowl first. It suits well in these conditions. We just need to keep it simple, we trust our team and teammates. We bat really deep. Knowing that you have a deep batting line-up allows you to express yourself. Same team. They’re a tough opposition, we respect them but we’re sure of giving them a tough competitive game
