Many might say Rajasthan Royals defied all odds when they beat Deccan chargers by 2 runs in a thriller but if you actually closely look at the statistics it was no surprise. Rajasthan Royals have an amazing record of defending a 150 plus total to their credit and Deccan Chargers have the worst record at home. Deccan Chargers had a chance to put the brakes on the record held by the RR but as usual they messed it up. This is the 5th defeat on the trot making it really difficult for them to reach the semifinals. Rajasthan Royals on the other hand have kept their hopes alive by moving to the 4th spot.
Temperatures were soaring at the city of Chennai but that didn’t stop Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals to produce an enthralling contest. The crowd was treated to a run feast on a sleeping beauty. The in-form batsmen Vijay came up with an outstanding century which was studded with 8 boundaries and 11 DLF Maximums to get Chennai to a record score of 246/5. The Rajasthan Royals gave a great chase to come so close thanks to Naman Ojha and Watson but Bollinger on debut was a star performer with the ball for the Super Kings to ensure that CSK got back to winning ways.
