    OUT! Caught. Karn Sharma to Ben Laughlin. Top spinning length ball, outside off stump no foot movement Steer, outside edge to wicketkeeper, by Dhoni.

    Two in two for Sharma. Tiny edge and Dhoni takes a smart catch standing up to the stumps. Chennai have completed a very comfortable win by 64 runs. They looked in complete control from ball one of the match and continued to dominate with the ball in hand. Ben Stokes and Jos Buttler added a bit of resistance in the middle-order but it was too much for them to do. That win takes Chennai to the top of the table courtesy of their strong run-rate while Rajasthan remain on four points.
