Ambati Rayudu also failed to capitalize on his good start and perished in the 10th over to see Chennai lose their fourth wicket with 56 runs on the board. Rajasthan spinners put on a chokehold as Chennai Super Kings struggled to increase their rate of scoring in the last 10 overs of the innings.

Captain MS Dhoni and Ravindra Jadeja put on a decent partnership of 51 runs to help Chennai push their second beyond 110-run mark.

For Chennai, Ravindra Jadeja played well and scored 35 not out off 30 balls with the help of four boundaries. He was well supported by MS Dhoni, who chipped in with 28 runs with the help of two fours.
