Shivam Dube and Yashasvi Jaiswal played knocks of 64 off 42 balls and 50 off 21, respectively, as RR chased down the target of 190 with seven wickets in hand and 15 balls to spare.
“I was thinking about looking at the wicket first, but we were chasing 190, I knew the wicket must be good. I was just looking at capitalising on the loose balls and giving my team a good start so that we are able to chase 190,” Jaiswal told teammates Anuj Rawat and Shivam Dube in a video posted on iplt20.com.
“I took signature of MS Dhoni on my bat after the match, I am really happy,” he added.
Earlier, Ruturaj Gaikwad registered his maiden IPL ton to help CSK post a challenging total of 189/4 in the allotted twenty overs.
“When I went out there to bat, we were at top and I was just focusing on playing my natural game so that we are able to chase down the total quickly,” Dube said.
Rajasthan Royals will next square off against Mumbai Indians on Tuesday at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium.
