Defending IPL champions Chennai Super Kings (CSK) got the better of Rajasthan Royals (RR) by eight runs at the MA Chidambaram Stadium on Sunday. With this win, the ‘Yellow Army’ moved to the top of the points table with a hat-trick of wins in as many games. Meanwhile, the inaugural edition IPL winners lost their third straight match to remain at the seventh position.
Post CSK’s third win, the players celebrated their head coach Stephen Fleming’s birthday in the dressing room. Fleming’s face also got smeared in the cake by Suresh Raina and Mohit Sharma as the rest of the players sang the birthday song for the former Kiwi skipper.
