Chennai Super Kings vs Rajasthan Royals players

 Samson was once again the star performer with the bat for the Royals in the last match. Walking into the middle in the first over of a high-scoring chase against Delhi Capitals, he made a calculated assault up front racing to 41 off just 16 balls within the powerplay.

Samson finished as the top-scorer in the contest with 86 off 46 balls hitting six sixes and eight fours. He kept the chase on track before getting caught just near the boundary in the 16th over and the Royals fell short at the end.

This was Samson’s highest individual score this season eclipsing the unbeaten 82 which he made in the Royals’ season-opener against Lucknow Super Giants. Samson has played close to 18 overs of spin bowling this season and is yet to be dismissed by a spinner with a strike rate of 146 against them. 

Jos Buttler is the highest run-getter against the Super Kings in IPL in the current Royals’ squad with 346 runs from nine matches at an average of 49.40 and a strike rate of 144.80.

On a night when bowlers were being dispatched to all parts of the ground, Ashwin held his own, bowling a miserly spell of 3/24 and conceding just one six off his four overs against Delhi Capitals. He sent back half-centurions Jake Fraser-McGurk and Abishek Porel along with Axar Patel to record his second-best bowling figures for the Royals.

The veteran off-spinner will know his home ground like the back of his hand as he has picked up 48 wickets at the MA Chidambaram Stadium from 41 matches to date at an average of 19.70 and a stunning economy rate of 6.10. 

Meanwhile, Chahal with 18 wickets to his name has the most number of scalps against the Super Kings in the IPL with Ashwin picking up 13.
