Rajasthan in top four Beat by CSK

A brutal assault by Watson and Binny at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium on Sunday enabled Rajasthan Royals to steal a win from Super Kings and confirm a place in the Top Four. The pair added a scarcely-believable 93 in 7.3 overs to grab win from a precarious position, as Watson ended with a 34-ball 70, and Binny remained unconquered on a 23-ball 41, in pursuit of superb kings rather reasonable 141.
The home team looked set to deflate to their 1st home defeat this season at 45/4 in the tenth over – with Ajinkya Rahane, James Faulkner, Sanju Samson and Rahul Dravid back to back in the pavilion. The required run-rate at that point had escalate to in excess of 9 per over and R. Ashwin, one of the most dangerous bowlers to get away in the format, had all four overs remaining.
Watson and Binny smote flat, in-your-face sixes off the tall bowler to check the asking rate, and then made that arithmetic figure a non-entity with a barrage of big strikes against Holder and Bravo.
After Ashwin went for 23 in the 11th, Bravo leaked 22 in 14th, inclusive of 3 more maximums; Chris Morris 15th was the icing on Rajasthan cake – 4 successive boundaries that took Watson to a blinding half-century in 25 balls and the home team to within 12 runs – to be attained in 5 overs – of a succeed.
