Rajasthan Royals entered the final of the Champions League T20 (CLT20) 2013 after beating the Chennai Super Kings by 14 runs in the first semi-final at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur on Friday.

After posting 159/8 courtesy a 56 ball 70 from Ajinkya Rahane, Pravin Tambe bagged three crucial wickets to restrict Chennai Super Kings to 145/8 despite the late onslaught by Ravichandra Ashwin. 

After the close victory, Rajasthan Royals fans and cricket experts were quick to congratulate the team on Twitter.
