VIDEO : Serious Collison Between Du Plessis & Mustafizur

Rajasthan Royals skipper Sanju Samson won the toss and opted to bowl first against Chennai Super Kings in a must-win encounter in Abu Dhabi.

The Royals made five changes to their side while CSK brought in Sam Curran for Dwayne Bravo and KM Asif in place of Deepak Chahar.

Rajasthan Royals need to win their remaining three matches by good margins to have any hope of reaching the play-offs.

There was a nasty collision between Faf du Plessis and Mustafizur Rahman. The CSK opener was looking for a quick single. Mustafizur was trying to get in line of the throw but du Plessis rammed into him in his quest to get into the crease. Du Plessis looks a bit dazed, Mustafizur is up and running

Chennai already through. RR need to win today which keep in sight for 14 points at the end of the league stage which will keep NRR out of the equation. If they lose today, RR will have to aim for 12 points in the league stage, but in that scenario, Samson’s side will hope for KKR, PBKS and MI to lose all their remaining games.
