Rajasthan Royals (RR) defeated Chennai Super Kings (CSK) by five wickets in a thrilling encounter at the Brabourne stadium in the ongoing season of Indian Premier League (IPL). With this win, the Royals have sealed a top two finish.

Chasing 151 runs, RR didn’t get a good start. They lost Orange Cap holder Jos Buttler early. Mitchell Santner took an amazing catch to Sanju Samson on a score of 15 runs before Devdutt Padikkal also walked back cheaply.

However, Yashasvi Jaiswal played an amazing knock of 59 runs in 44 balls. Just when it looked like Rajasthan Royals would walk away with the game, they lost the wickets of Yashasvi Jaiswal and Shimron Hetmyer in quick time. 

Rajasthan needed 39 runs in 3.4 overs with Ravichandran Ashwin and Riyan Parag in the middle. But Ashwin played with great maturity and took calculated risks to chase down the total. He played an impactful knock of 40* runs in 23 balls which helped Rajasthan win the match in last over.

Meanwhile, fans went gaga over impressive display with the bat from Ravichandran Ashwin. Many even backed him to be on the plane for the T20 World Cup scheduled to take place later this year.

Here are some of the reactions:

“Feels like a million dollars” – Ravichandran Ashwin after match-winning knock

Meanwhile, the veteran all-rounder was seemingly happy with his match-winning knock against Chennai Super Kings. Besides, he was also extremely handy with the bowl, helping Rajasthan crawl back in the game in the second half of the innings.

“Feels like a million dollars. It was important that we won the game tonight. That’s quite a good finish to the group stage games. The communication was pretty clear before the tournament. I had to work on a lot of stuff. The team management was clear with my position. I know what my role is. I have to make the batsmen take risks,” Ravichandran Ashwin said at the end of the match.
