Noose of spinners of Rajasthan
The start of Chennai was not as per expectations. Rituraj Gaikwad made an explosive debut but Devon Conway, who scored half-centuries in four consecutive matches, was seen struggling this time. Adam Zampa made him his victim in the sixth over. This leg-spinner from Rajasthan shocked Chennai even further after this.
