India vs Australia: Virat Kohli to return to India after first Test; Rohit Sharma added to Test squad
Rohit Sharma was included in the Test team on Monday after originally being left out of all three squads announced by the BCCI last month due to a hamstring injury.
Opener Ruturaj Gaikwad set up the chase nicely for CSK with a sublime 72 off 53 balls, his second straight fifty-plus score.
If a rough estimation is to be believed, the BCCI-NCA spent at least Rs 1.5 crore, if not more, on the rehabilitation and recovery of Kamlesh Nagarkoti and Shivam Mavi during the last two seasons.
Rajasthan's batting seems too dependent on their top three and the spin attack does not feature finger spinners.
Mavi and Nagarkoti, who battled injuries in the last two seasons, claimed two wickets apiece, while Varun Chakravarthy also got two to restrict the Royals to 137 for 9 in 20 overs while chasing a target of 175.
