Ajinkya Rahane departs even as Sanju Samson hits two sixes off an over in Rajasthan Royal vs Chennai Super Kings match of IPL 2014

Apr 23, 2014

Rajasthan Royals were 38 for two after six overs in their IPL 2014 match against Chennai Super Kings in Dubai. Rajasthan need a further 103 runs to win from the remaining 14 overs with eight wickets in hand.

Huge six by Samson over long on, Hilfenhaus the victim. And Samson isn’t done yet, six more! Tremendous batting by the youngster. 14 off that over as Samson races to 16 off 13. Royals 37 for one after five overs.

Ashwin bowls the sixth over and strikes promptly, getting rid of a good-looking Ajinkya Rahane. Watson and Samson see off the over.

Earlier, Rajasthan Royals reached 23 for one after four overs as they seem to be picking up after the early loss of Abhishek Nayar, in their IPL 2014 match against Chennai Super Kings in Dubai. Rajasthan need a further 118 runs to win from the remaining 16 overs with nine wickets in hand.

Ajinkya Rahane was batting on 14, accompanied by the young Sanju Samson on three not out. The Chennai pacers have been impressive with their line and length but they have managed only one wicket so far in the innings.

Ben Hilfenhaus opened the bowling He started well, getting the ball to swing at decent pace. But off the third legal delivery, Nayar played a pick-up pull shot reminiscent of Adam Gilchrist’s trademark shot. After that, Rahane played the ball down to the third man boundary as RR scored 10 off the first over.

Ishwar Pandey came in to bowl the second over and started with a good length ball that went past Nayar’s inside edge. Nayar gave him the charge off the next ball, but failed to connect. Very interesting third ball, as Nayar went for the pick-up pull again but misses as the ball rolls to Brendon McCullum fielding at short cover. Nayar takes off for a non-existent single before being sent back, and McCullum races him to the stumps and runs him out. Nayar Run Out for five from seven balls. RR finish at 10 for two after two overs, as Ishwar Pandey bowls a wicket maiden.

Earlier in the match, Rajasthan Royals (RR) produced an inspired bowling performance to limit the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) to 140 for six in their Indian Premier League (IPL) 2014 match at Dubai International Cricket Stadium on Wednesday. Dwayne Smith scored a quickfire 50 off 28 balls, and his innings was the only bright spot for Chennai Super Kings as the other batsmen failed to get going against the disciplined Rajasthan bowling attack.

The Royals continued with their strategy of taking the pace off the ball and strangling the opposition batsmen,  which paid off handsomely. The Super Kings, despite being provided an excellent start, failed to put up a fight and suffered a batting collapse in the middle overs, which hampered their chances of putting a strong total.
