Brilliant Buttler gets 9, struggling Jadhav 3: IPL 2020 Rajasthan and Chennai player ratings

Comfortable seven-wicket victory for Royals in Abu Dhabi

Jos Buttler hit an unbeaten half-century as Rajasthan Royals kept their playoff hopes alive with an easy win over Chennai Super Kings in Abu Dhabi.

Buttler and Steve Smith shared an unbroken stand worth 98 as they hauled in a victory target of just 126 with seven wickets and 15 balls to spare.

Chennai’s batting effort was entirely featureless as they ambled to 125-5 off 20 overs, with Rajasthan’s leg-spinners – Shreyas Gopal and Rahul Tewatia – taking two for 32 between them from eight.

The win puts Rajasthan up to fifth in the table, two points behind Kolkata Knight Riders, albeit having played a game more.
