Alongside him, CSK skipper Ruturaj Gaikwad's calm and calculated innings of an unbeaten 42 runs provided the stability needed to chase down a modest total of 142. The match also featured a controversial dismissal and heroic finishing touches, contributing to a memorable victory that edged CSK closer to the playoffs.

Chennai Super Kings' bowling attack, led by the young pacer Simarjeet Singh, was instrumental in setting up the win. Simarjeet's outstanding spell where he took three crucial wickets was pivotal in stifling the Rajasthan Royals' batting lineup. He was well-supported by Tushar Deshpande, who not only maintained pressure with an economy rate but also took key wickets towards the innings' close, including a double strike in the 19th over that curtailed a late charge from the Royals. The disciplined approach by other CSK bowlers, including economical overs from Maheesh Theekshana and strategic bowling from Shardul Thakur, kept the Rajasthan Royals restricted to 141/5, setting up a manageable chase for the CSK batsmen.
