Jaipur, May 12: For 10 overs in Rajasthan Royals' chase, Chennai Super Kings held all the aces. Enter Shane Watson and it all changed in the matter of 7.3 overs. Watson's sensational counter-attacking 34-ball 70 (6x4, 6x6) and Stuart Binny's equally good 23-ball 41 not out (2x4, 3x6) powered the home team to a 5-wicket victory here at Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Match 61 of IPL 2013 on Sunday night.

RR were chasing a modest target of 142 (CSK 141/4) and at the halfway mark, they were tottering at 49/4.
