For now, it's goodbye from Abhinand, Nikhil, Rishi, Pradeep, Hari and Mukesh . Ruturaj Gaikwad | Player of the Match (101* off 60): It was a slow wicket at the start and slightly damp, as the game progressed it got better. It was important for one of the batters to stay till the 14th or 15th over. I didn't manage to do it in the last few games thankfully it happened today. I am working on timing the ball really well and trying to maintain my shape. It has worked for me for many years. Right from when I started playing cricket, I have relied on timing. Today also I relied on timing and thankfully it is coming off. My selection in the CSK team in 2019 where I didn't get a chance to play, being in the dressing room I got to learn a lot. I got to know some routines, I got to know what hard work to go through, it was a very good learning curve for me. That one thing really helped me a lot. It was a dream, started really slow, didn't dream of getting a hundred, aim was to get to a total of maybe 160-170. I like it (Orange Cap) but I would have loved to be on the winning side today. Sanju Samson | Rajasthan Royals captain: We are aware of the abilities of the people we have in our batting line-up. That's why it's disappointing when we lose. The wicket was behaving really well in the last 3-4 overs, so we knew it'd be much better in the second innings. We just wanted to back ourselves. I am happy I guessed it (pitch getting better in the second innings) right. They (openers) have been giving good starts, they almost finished off the game in the powerplay. They were going for the kill. Very happy for young Jaiswal, he's played really well throughout the tournament, we are very sure he'll make it big. (Secret behind Jaiswal's power) He keeps on eating (laughs). We have been discussing about Dube from the last 2-3 games. We thought today might be his day. He has been working hard in the nets, very happy for him. Unbelievable batting by Gaikwad. We are really afraid of a batsman like him. Plays a lot of cricketing shots, there's no risk the way he plays. We need to respect those type of batsmen. Very happy that he scored a really good hundred, respect him. We are not thinking too far ahead, one match at a time. Harsha Bhogle : What an astonishing result! And what a sensational performance from Rajasthan Royals. Aaj sachmuch Halla Bol! Tweet Share MS Dhoni | Chennai Super Kings (losing) captain: A bad toss to lose. 190 was a good score, and the dew made it flat, and the ball started coming on well. You needed to bat well, and they did that, and put pressure on the bowlers. They just took the game away in the first 6 overs. 250 would've been closer to par ( Warning: sarcasm ), given the way they were going. It was stopping a bit when their wristspinners were bowling, and it started coming on better later, that's when Ruturaj capitalised really well. Often when you lose the game it can get brushed under the carpet but it was a brilliant innings. I think the batsmen must assess quickly what is a good score, and you tend to go hard in the T20 format and then realise that it's not a 160-180 wicket. They assessed the conditions quickly, and they didn't let pressure get to the middle order. Deepak was really good with the new ball in earlier games, and we did miss him, because today the bowlers were under the pump. We could have used the dimensions better in terms of setting fields too. It's important to forget but also learn from this game, because there's no point learning if this happens in a playoff match. 21:47 Local Time, 17:47 GMT, 23:17 IST: Whoa! Who saw this coming? Five changes to the XI, placed second from bottom on the points table, up against the table-toppers who hadn't lost a single game in the UAE leg, almost every bowler punished by a 24-year-old classy Gaikwad, a struggling batting line-up set a target of 190 to keep their playoffs hopes alive. Rajasthan Royals had their backs against the wall and not many would have backed them to even put up a fight. But a teenager named Yashaswi Jaiswal came out all guns blazing, blasted a 19-ball half-century and his team raced away to 81/1 in six overs - highest powerplay score of the season. KM Asif nipped out Jaiswal off his very first ball after the powerplay. But Shivam Dube, sent above David Miller and Glenn Phillips, kept the momentum going. He went after the CSK spinners by hitting towering sixes and forced Dhoni to bring the pacers back. He didn't spare them either as he notched up his maiden IPL fifty and stitched a fifty partnership with his captain. Samson fell to Thakur but that was too little too late for CSK whose bowling looked toothless without Bravo and Chahar. Two swashbuckling knocks from two left-handers and RR made a mockery of CSK's 189 as they hunted it down with 15 balls to spare. Who's going to be the Player of the Match?

The top two teams - CSK and DC - are already through to the play-offs and are the favourites to face-off in Qualifier 1. RCB are one win away from booking their spot in the playoffs and it's highly improbable for them to surpass the table-toppers, courtesy their poor NRR. A low-scoring encounter at Sharjah followed by a run-fest in Abu Dhabi today. Hope you enjoyed our coverage. Curtains down on Super Saturday! Join us tomorrow for another double-header.
