CSK continued to remain cool in run chases winning another match of the last ball this time against Rajasthan Royals. Batting first, RR set CSK a target of 147 which they achieved of the last ball as Captain Cool Dhoni sneaked a 2 of the last ball. The win lifts CSK into the top 4 where they would like to remain as they start to put in some winning performances. In the race for the Orange cap, Faf Du Plessis cut down the lead of Rahane with another man of the match performance top scoring for CSK. Cheers! Ram

Yes, another last ball thriller in the IPL5. But I think CSK left it too late in this one. They could have worked on their net run rate on this one. Cheers! Ram

As you said, once again it was Faf Du Plessis, who proved his critics wrong, showing great consistency and enormous ability to play on Indian pitches. Again, clean up job done very calmly by Captain Cool! Good game, and deserved victory for CSK

Yes, Faf is having a great run. This was his third straight 50. The other two innings he has played have also been 30 plus scores. Cheers! Ram

CSK some how managed to win in the last ball, it was not the usual CSK batting performance. But with this win CSK confidence will rise. Let's see if CSK can defend the title or by seeing DD is winning probably they have more chance in this title ...

I think they took the chase a bit too casual and nearly paid for it. I thought they were lucky that the last ball did not go to a fielder if so, the super over could have gone either way. But anyhow a win is a good win and they are currently at the 4th place. Cheers! Ram
