RR vs CSK IPL Highlights 2023 – April 27

MS Dhoni: (pardon the odd paraphrase) They scored quite a bit above par. We gave away too many in the first six. At the same time, the wicket was great to bat on. Bowlers bowled well in the middle overs but a lot of edges went for boundaries, at least 5-6 went for them and that had made an impact. They had par-plus and we couldn’t get a good start in the power play with the bat. I felt Pathirana’s bowling was good, he didn’t bowl badly. I think the scorecard doesn’t reflect how well he bowled.

Yashasvi batted really well, was important to go after the bowlers and it was important to take calculated risks. We had to assess what a good length is, as captain you tell them but initially we have away a few boundaries and after that you’re always playing catch up. At the end of the innings, Jurel batted well but I think it’s the first six where it got away from us. This is a very special venue, my first ODI hundred in Vizag gave me 10 games but the 183 I made here gave me another one year. It was great to be back here.

Sanju Samson: “This is a win the team and dugout really wanted. The way youngsters Jaiswal, Devdutt, and Jurel batted was outstanding, the mindset of attack, attack, and attack is something we will keep promoting in the dressing room. Credit goes to the team management and support staff [for working with players like Jaiswal] who work very hard at the academy. A lot of work has gone behind his success. Proud of the way he’s playing.”

Yashasvi Jaiswal is the Player of the Match for his IPL best, a 43-ball 77.

Rajasthan Royals vs Chennai Super Kings Highlights today, Thursday 27-4-2023. 37th Match (N), Indian Premier League 2023, Sawai Mansingh Stadium, Jaipur.

“It looks like a really good wicket to bat on,” their captain Sanju Samson reasons. “We will take the learnings from the last game but each and every game, opponent, and conditions are different. We would have liked to see more pink here than yellow (laughs). Boult misses out with a niggle, and Adam Zampa comes in.”
“We would have bowled first,” says CSK captain MS Dhoni. “This pitch here has a decent amount of pace but the bounce is on the lower side so bowlers need to adapt soon. At the end of the day, you need characters, we are trying to build characters, trying to convince them to focus on the process. The result doesn’t matter. We are playing the same side.”

Toss: Rajasthan Royals, elected to bat first.

Pitch and weather: Even if the pitch is not as slow as it was in the first match in Jaipur, Sawai Mansingh Stadium has historically not been a high-scoring venue. So don’t expect too many fireworks.
