Jos Buttler powers Rajasthan to thrilling four-wicket win

Jos Buttler plays a shot during the Indian Premier League 2018 match Mumbai Indians vs Rajasthan Royals at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai

As a step towards spreading awareness, Royals captain Ajinkya Rahane along with his team-mates Heinrich Klaasen, Krishnappa Gowtham and Mahipal Lomror got themselves screened. David Willey with the ball for CSK.

The consolation effort: Without Buttler's superhuman effort with the bat, the Chennai batsman would've had a night to savour, their top order firing in Jaipur.

CSK will be handed a huge boost if fast bowler Deepak Chahar, who has been on the road to recovery after suffering a hamstring injury last month, gets fit in time for Friday's outing.

Left-arm spinner Ravindra Jadeja, who struggled against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), emerged with a match-winning figure of 3/18 - in a major relief for the team management. Buttler and Sanju Samson then tried to steady the innings, adding 45 runs between them off the next seven overs before the latter was run out following a frightful mix-up.

Buttler smashed 12 runs off the last over to keep Rajasthan in contention for an improbable knockouts spot.

The dismissals of Samson and debutant Prashant Chopra gave CSK a look-in in the 13th over, but with the aggressive Binny for company, Buttler held back to let his partner play the big shots.

Imam dies in S. Africa mosque attack, two others injured
Prem Balram who is now on scene, said all three men are in a critical condition and were now being treated by paramedics. The attackers threw a petrol bomb inside the mosque before fleeing the scene in a vehicle with no registration plates.

Sanju Samson (21) recovered and put on 46 runs for the third wicket with Buttler, who reached his fourth half-century of this IPL campaign off 26 balls. The England star punished the visitors for that dropped chance with a six into the stands beyond the mid-wicket boundary.

Returning to the tournament after serving a two-year suspension, CSK are in red-hot form this season under talismanic skipper MS Dhoni. That had sent Raina racing to 29, and allowed the slower Shane Watson to find his footing.

Rayudu, especially, has batted well both as an opener and at number four, and is now in third position in the run-scorers chart with 423 runs from 10 games.

Dhoni is seventh on the run-getters list with 360 runs that include three half-centuries with 79 not out being the highest.

With Chennai at 119/3 in 13 overs, Dhoni and Sam Billings (27 off 22) forged a 55-run partnership off 39 balls to put back things in control.

Like Buttler mentioned in the post-match presentation, he did ride his luck as he was dropped thrice and once by Dhoni as well.
