MS Dhoni and Faf du Plessis share a light moment ahead of the RCB vs CSK encounter.
Mohammed Siraj continued with his habit of striking early inside the PowerPlay as the pacer removed the in-form Ruturaj Gaikwad to give RCB an early advantage.
Devon Conway took the mantle of driving Chennai Super Kings after the fall of Ajinkya Rahane. The batsman scored a brilliant half-century to keep Chennai’s run-rate in a good position and smoke the bowlers out of the park.
Ajinkya Rahane and Devon Conway forged a brilliant half-century stand with the former India captain continuing his fine form in this IPL. Rahane brought his wrists into play and used the flick shot to keep the RCB bowlers at bay.
Hits the Roof! Ajinkya Rahane continued his fine form and the pick of the shot was a six that hit the roof of the stadium. Top shot and the veteran batsman was on fire.
Devon Conway missed out on a century as Harshal Patel with an excellent yorker deceived the batsman. Conway played a good inning as he forged a 74-run partnership with Ajinkya Rahane and then an 80-run stand with Shivam Dube.
Shivam Dube smashed a brilliant 52 off 27 balls and his knock consisted of five sixes and two boundaries as the all-rounder belted the RCB bowlers at a strike rate close to 200.
Glenn Maxwell smashed a brilliant 76 off just 36 balls and his knock consisted of right sixes and three boundaries. A brilliant knock chasing a tall total. He is in some form!
Chennai Super Kings held their nerves to win a brilliant match. The high voltage affair between the traditional rivals produced an exciting run fest, with a total of 444 runs scored on the night.
