Chennai Super Kings thrashed Rajasthan Royals by 63 runs at Sawai Mansingh Stadium, Jaipur which has always been regarded as a sort of fortress for the RR team where they have been nearly impossible to beat all these years. Rajasthan Royals captain Shane Warne won the toss and put CSK to bat. Michael Hussey (46 runs off 30 balls) and Murali Vijay (53 runs off 40 balls) gave them a great start following by two more good knocks by Suresh Raina (43 runs off 27 balls) and Mahendra Singh Dhoni (41 runs off 19 balls) as CSK scored a massive 196/3 in 20 overs. In reply, Rajasthan Royals kept on losing wickets cheaply with the exception of Ajinkya Rahane (52 runs off 36 balls) as they got all out for just 133 runs in 19.3 overs. Doug Bollinger took 3 wickets while R Ashwin also took 2 wickets for the Super Kings. Suresh Raina also took 2 wickets in just 3 balls he bowled at the end of the match without giving away any runs. Murali Vijay was awarded the Man of the Match for his half century.
