The belter of a track at Abu Dhabi came as much-needed batting respite after a string of dual-natured pitches, and both CSK and RR made hay. Ruturaj Gaikwad dealt the opening blow, scoring a pristine century with a six off the last ball of the innings before Yashasvi Jaiswal and Shivam Dube combined to render his ton futile. Rajasthan Royals eventually snared Chennai Super Kings’ 189/4 with 15 balls and seven wickets to spare to inject a new lease of life into their playoffs ambitions.
