Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) vs Chennai Super Kings (CSK): CSK started the chase on a very strong note, thanks to openers Ruturaj Gaikwad (38) and Faf du Plessis (31). They put on 71 runs for the first wickets. Virat Kohli took a brilliant catch diving forward off Chahal to send Gaikwad packing and soon after, Maxwell struck on his first ball by removing du Plessis. At the end of the first innings, the Chennai Super Kings were the happier side. Despite Virat Kohli (53) and Devdutt Padikkal (70) put on 111 runs for the opening stand and took RCB to 90/0 after 10 overs, RCB could manage to post 156/6 in 20 overs. The main reason being Dwayne Bravo, who returned with figures of 3/24 in his 4 overs. Moreover, Shardul Thakur also bagged two wickets. The start of the match and the toss were delayed due to a sandstorm in Sharjah.
King Kholi and Padikkal made a high partnership of 111. With Kholi making a Half Century. But their partnership didn’t make it till 150. When Kholi was taken away by Dwayne Bravo . But the match still was looking good but then Padikkal to returned to Pavilion. Today high hopes were with Mr. 360 AB Deviliers and Maxwell but it didn’t go as RCB had planned. They had left the pitch with 11 & 12 runs only.
while Kholi’s form seemed to be returning the team lost today tk CSK by 6 wickets and 11 balls. It was really a nail biting match for both of the teams. But in this ge kne has to win and other has to lose. So today it was CSK day but RCB under Kholi Captainship played beeter then the last game.. Where as the Vissle Poddu were in their natural game and won the match..
