Shane Warne apologises to Rajasthan Royals fans after 'terrible display'

The 2008 IPL champions were defeated by Chennai Super Kings last night by 64 runs thanks to some impressive batting display from Australian all-rounder Shane Watson.

IPL 2018's 17th match saw Chennai Super Kings beat Rajasthan Royals by 64 runs at Pune. The catalyst of this win was Shane Watson, who scored a brilliant hundred and then came back after playing nearly 20 overs to pick a wicket in his 3 overs while giving just 13 runs. He was dropped in the first over as Rahul Tripathi dropped a sitter at first slip, which proved to be costly.

Ben Stokes remained the only top scorer for Rajasthan with his 45 runs.

Chasing 205 to win, RR lost early wickets and never really recovered from there. If you field well and take the catches, it'll help.

Watson smashed nine boundaries and six sixes in his 57-ball knock.

For Royals to have any sort of a chance, they needed a bright start but CSK bowlers ensured that there weren't any easy runs on offer.

1,000-odd cricket-crazy fans of CSK, all clad in CSK jerseys, left for Pune by a special "CSK Train" which left Chennai Central on Thursday to watch yesterday's CSK Vs Rajasthan Royals match.

Although, Friday's game against the Rajasthan Royals may not have seen a full house in Pune, but the next five games are nearly sold out, according to Maharashtra Cricket Association. However already 50 runs were on the board and it was Watson who was the danger man. In no time, Watson was approaching his hundred and Raina, a half-century, but Gopal brought relief for Royals by getting the latter caught in deep by Gowtham. Ben Stokes and Jos Butler were the only players to cross 20. He not only hit powerful shots but also used his wrists nicely for some delicate boundaries.

Every cricketing fan who was born in the 90's knows the name of Mahendra Singh Dhoni. Watson completed his century in the 18th over and was out on penultimate ball of the innings.
