IPL 2020 LIVE SCORE, Chennai Super Kings vs Rajasthan Royals latest updates: That's that, Rajasthan Royals have won this crucial match-up at the bottom of the IPL table. They looked like they were on top from the very beginning, as some excellent bowling from the likes of Jofra Archer, Kartik Tyagi and Rahul Tewatia restricted CSK to a measly total of 125. The Royals' batting began with a few bumps here and there, as they lost three wickets in quick succession, but Steve Smith and Jos Buttler combined excellently to carry them to victory. Buttler was especially impressive, scoring an imperious 70 from 48 balls.
Preview: On Monday, the Indian Premier League's seventh and eighth-ranked teams, Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals, will face off against each other in a match of immense consequence, with both teams' play-off hopes on the line.
CSK and RR have massively underperformed so far and find themselves near the bottom of the points table in this latest edition of the competition.
Both teams have six points from nine games, but Chennai Super Kings are just about edging it on net run rate.
With only five matches left, wins are crucial for both sides, and if either are hoping to be in the playoffs come November, they'll need a good result in this encounter.
Both teams have also lost their previous matches, with both defeats coming on Saturday. The MS Dhoni-led CSK lost to league-leaders Delhi Capitals by five wickets, while RR were handed a seven-wicket defeat by Virat Kohli's Royal Challengers Bangalore.
