Dale Steyn, on Sunday, turned back the clock when he got rid of Chennai Super Kings opener Shane Watson and vice-captain Suresh Raina off consecutive deliveries in the first over of the visiting side’s run chase.
Watson looked to drive Steyn’s outside off delivery and edged it to Marcus Stoinis at first slip. However, Raina had no response to South African’s yorker as the ball went on between the legs and the bat to rattle the stumps.
RCB skipper Virat Kohli was over the moon as Steyn removed two dangerous batsmen to put CSK on the back foot right from the outset.
Here’s the video of Suresh Raina’s dismissal:

Steyn, who has been roped in by RCB as a replacement for injured Australian fast bowler Nathan Coulter-Nile, registered figures of 2/29 at the M. Chinnaswamy stadium in Bengaluru as RCB claimed a one-run win over CSK, their third of the season, to stay alive in the competition.
