  • IPL 2018 Chennai Super Kings vs Rajasthan Royals Live Cricket Score: 17th Match RR vs CSK Live Streaming on Hotstar

Former Australian skipper and legendary leg spinner Shane Warne, who is the mentor of Rajasthan Royals has apologised to fans for the poor performance their team against Chennai Super Kings.

At their new home ground in Pune, the Chennai Super Kings scored a challenging total of 204 runs for the loss of 5 overs in 20 overs. He was dropped in the first over as Rahul Tripathi dropped a sitter at first slip, something the Royals were made to pay for.

Chasing 205 runs for victory, Rajasthan never gained momentum in reaching the target. Watson was in regal touch as the Australian pummelled Royals bowlers after being dropped in the opening over, bowled by Stuart Binny.

Watson swung his arms when the ball was pitched outside off and positioned himself nicely against short and straight deliveries to find boundary after boundary. With no assistance on offer, the bowlers needed to be disciplined with their line and length but they were guilty of bowling either too full or short. For the Rajasthan Royals, Shreyas Gopal picked up 2 wickets.

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, all-rounder Ben Stokes, who was bought for a whopping Rs 12.5 crore, has failed to fire till now. After electing to field first, Royals bowlers bowled on both sides of the wicket and were very erratic. At half-way mark, CSK were 107 for one.

A day after Chris Gayle's maiden hundred in the 11 edition of the league, Shane Watson added another IPL century to the tally, courtesy, an excellent knock against the Rajasthan Royals on Friday.

There was no stopping Watson from the other end.

MS Dhoni arguably enjoys the biggest fan-following among all the cricketers in IPL 2018. Watson completed his century in the 18th over and was out on penultimate ball of the innings.
