Ajinkya Rahane And Shane Watson Blow CSK Away

A record opening stand off 144 from Ajinkya Rahane(76* off 55) and Shane Watson (73 off 47) ensured that the Rajasthan Royals picked up their fifth win on the trot in IPL 2015. Playing in the heat of Ahmedabad, the Royals put up a splendid performance with both bat and ball as they scythed through the Chennai Super Kings. Dwayne Smith and Dwayne Bravo were the only ones who made significant contributions  with the bat for CSK.

Watson makes the cut as Faulkner enjoys the heat

Aussie all rounder Shane Watson was restored to the team sheet. In an interesting move, Watson was also handed the captain’s role ahead of the successful Steven Smith. Left arm spinner Ankit Sharma was included as Tim Southee was relegated to the bench.

James Faulkner’s theatrics on twitter earned him a huge amount of respect as well as stick. Initially he had complained about the unbearable heat at Ahmedabad, but later had to tweak his position to some extent!
