IPL 2021: Cricket fraternity reacts to CSK’s resounding 45-run victory over RR

CSK restricted RR to 143/9 after posting 188/9 on the board.

Ravindra Jadeja was outstanding with the ball and in the field | BCCI/IPLChennai Super Kings (CSK) and Rajasthan Royals (RR) faced each other in the 12th match of IPL 2021 at the Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai on Monday (April 19).

Asked to bat first, CSK posted 188/9 in 20 overs on the back of key contributions from Faf du Plessis (33 off 17 balls), Ambati Rayudu (27), Moeen Ali (26) and Dwayne Bravo (20* off 8 balls).

Chetan Sakariya was the stand-out bowler for RR, claiming 3 wickets by conceding 36 runs in his four overs. Chris Morris also took a couple of scalps by giving away 33 runs.

In response, Super Kings restricted RR to 143/9 in 20 overs. It was a listless batting performance from the Royals as none of them except for Jos Buttler (49 off 35 balls) managed to touch the 25-run mark.

Moeen Ali (3-7), Sam Curran (2-24) and Ravindra Jadeja (2-28) were the wreckers-in-chief with the ball for CSK.

For their clinical performance in all facets of the game, the CSK camp garnered rich praise from the cricket fraternity on Twitter.
