Shane Watson and Stuart Binny combined in a 93-run stand off 45 balls to help Rajasthan Royals beat Chennai Super Kings by five wickets at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur on Sunday (May 12). In doing so, Rajasthan denied Chennai the opportunity to seal a spot in the Indian Premier League playoffs, while boosting their own chances to do so. They also kept a spotless home record, with eight wins in eight matches.
Given the way Rajasthan started their chase of 142, a win looked unlikely. They were three down for 19 after Chennai came out all guns blazing with their pace bowlers. Jason Holder accounted for both Ajinkya Rahane and James Faulkner in the same over before Mohit Sharma had Sanju Samson caught behind.
