IPL 2021, Live Cricket Score, Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Rajasthan Royals (RR): Shardul Thakur gets to bowl the final over and Unadkat's thick edge flies over short third for a boundary on the first ball! A couple of wides follow, before Jadeja somehow takes yet another catch at sweeper. He's been just about everywhere tonight.
