Highlights - Vintage MS Dhoni guides CSK win

VIVO IPL T20 tournament 12th T20 cricket match played between Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royal's at Chennai in 2019 - Chennai Super Kings won by 8 runs.

A vintage Mahendra Singh Dhoni innings was ended with three sixes off the last three balls - tipped Chennai Super Kings from par score to winning score as they staged a comeback to beat Rajasthan Royals by 8 runs in Chennai.

MSD - Mahendra Singh Dhoni's unbeaten 75 off 46 balls, his highest score at home, was built in partnership with Suresh Raina with the pair joining at 27 for 3 after Ajinkya Rahane had put them in.

But it was at the end that MS Dhoni turned it. With Dwayne Bravo, who would later defend 12 off the last over, Mahendra Singh Dhoni put on 56 in 29 balls as Rajasthan Royals conceded a match-defining 67 off the last four overs.

Ben Stokes, Rahul Tripathi, and Jofra Archer played crucial knocks, but Royals' own collapse at the start of the chase meant they had too much to do at the end.

( CSK ) - Chennai Super Kings edged ( RR ) - Rajasthan Royal's by eight runs in a thriller to be the only unbeaten team in this edition’s VIVO IPL. The loss was Rajasthan’s third in three games.
