Chasing 158, Jos Buttler led the batting line-up from the front, and the 2008 champions won the game by 7 wickets to qualify for the final

Former South African cricketer Graeme Smith reckons Rajasthan Royals would be aiming to give their best in their last TATA IPL league game against Chennai Super Kings for that will help them finish in the top two.

The Sanju Samson-led side has played brilliantly in the most exciting IPL season and a win tonight will put them in the second spot on the leaderboard.

Talking about RR’s strategy against CSK – who were the second team to be eliminated from IPL 2022 – Smith claimed the men in pink and blue should look to put up a comprehensive show against the four-time champions.

Speaking on ‘CRICKET LIVE’ on Star Sports, Smith said, “Jos Buttler should look to get another big knock under the belt. We’ve all talked about the importance of finishing in the top two and giving yourself an extra chance of playing in the knockouts. So that will be key for Rajasthan as well. They’ve played good cricket, they’ve found the form. Hetmyer is back after the birth of his first child so that’s a positive. They would just be hoping that they click in all the departments against CSK. The top two will need to give them a good start.
