Opting to field first, Rajasthan Royals invited Chennai Super Kings to bat. While CSK opener Ruturaj Gaikwad fell for a watchful 10 off 13, Faf du Plessis (33) and Moeen Ali (26) stitched a partnership to steady the innings. Suresh Raina managed a brief stay at the crease and ended up with 18 while Ambati Rayudu scored a brisk 27 off 17

CSK failed to accelerate after 15 overs with Ravindra Jadeja (8), MS Dhoni (18) departing cheaply. But courtesy of some fine hitting by Sam Curran (13 off 6) and Dwayne Bravo (20 not-out off 8), CSK posted a competitive 188/9 in 20 overs.

Chasing 189, which seems to be chase able in Mumbai, RR lost opener Manan Vohra for 14 while skipper Sanju Samson was dismissed for one. All-rounder Shivam Dube continued his torrid run of form and scored 17 off 20. However, RR suffered a collapse as David Miller (2), Riyan Parag (3), Chris Morris (0) failed to drive RR closer towards the target.
