With the comfortable victory, Royals maintained their 100 percent win-record in the campaign, perched at the top of the standings with a maximum 10 points from five games.

Chennai remained just a rung below Royals with six points from four matches. Royals captain Watson recovered to play his first game of this year’s IPL after missing four matches with a hip injury. And he looked in no discomfort whatsoever, carting the CSK bowlers all over the ground, hitting six boundaries and four sixes. Rahane was also in no mood to play the sheet anchor role as he was equally aggressive — six fours and two sixes — to give CSK a royal hiding.
Earlier, CSK captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni won the toss and chose to bat, with his team posting a fighting total of 156/4. Dhoni’s decision to bat first under sweltering conditions was believed to be correct but his hopes of a strong start were dampened soon. Royals bowlers were disciplined and kept a tight leash on the CSK batsmen. inputs from IANS.
