WICKET! Prashant Solanki lands another big blow. This time it’s Shimron Hetmyer who takes the long walk back to the dressing room after holing out to Devon Conway on 6.

Matheesha Pathirana was quite wayward in his first over. However, he’s much much better now – landing his yorker well and allowing just two runs in the over. RR 76/2 in 11 overs, chasing 151.
Right-arm offspinner Moeen Ali into the attack now. Just two runs in his first over. He starred with bat earlier for CSK. Can he replicate his performance with the ball now? CSK need wickets here. RR require 78 off 60 now with eight wickets remaining.
WICKET! A superb catch from Mitchell Santner off his own bowling to get rid of RR captain Sanju Samson. The attempt was to crash this over mid-off but the ball went over the bowler’s head who leapt in time to complete the catch. Samson scored 15. RR 67/2 in 8.3 overs, chasing 151.
Lasith Malinga clone Matheesha Pathirana into the attack now. His second delivery is way down the leg-side and it evades everyone including wicketkeeper MS Dhoni four five wides. Eight runs from the over. RR 67/1 in 8 overs, chasing 151. Time-out.

A decent final over of Powerplay for CSK, courtesy Simarjeet Singh who allowed just five runs including four legbyes. RR 52/1 in 6 overs, chasing 151. Yashasvi Jaiswal 32*, Sanju Samson 13*.
Mukesh Choudhary continues. His first delivery of the over is full and outside off. Sanju Samson just times it through covers for a sumptuous boundary. And then he attempted a yorker later in the over but it ended up being a low full toss on the legs which Yashasvi Jaiswal flicked away to deep square leg region for a four. 10 runs from the over. RR 47/1 in 5 overs, chasing 151.
Sanju Samson was lucky the ball flew between slip and short third man fielders after he went hard at one which was well outside off and the resulting edge went past the boundary. However, Simarjeet Singh dropped one short to Yashavi Jaiswal and was pulled with disdain for a four. 11 runs from it. RR 37/1 in 4 overs, chasing 151.
Mukesh Choudhary continues and so does Yashavi Jaiswal who has clattered two more successive fours off the left-arm pacer. The first one to third man region while the next to midwicket region. Sanju Samson has walked in at no 3 after the dismissal of Jos Buttler. RR 26/1 in 3 overs, chasing 151.
Earlier, Moeen Ali smashed a 57-ball 93 as Chennai Super Kings posted 150 for 6 in 20 overs at the Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai.

CSK won the toss and opted to bat. They made one change to their line-up. Ambati Rayudu returns and replaces Shivam Dube. For Rajasthan, Shimron Hetmyer has come back and will play in place of James Neesham.
A win would take RR ahead of LSG on the table, making them eligible to participate in the Qualifier 1, against Gujarat Titans on May 24 in Kolkata. But if they lose, they would end up in the Eliminator to be held a day later.
