RCB vs CSK: Chennai beat Kohli’s Bangalore to reclaim top spot

Chennai Super Kings registered their second consecutive win in the UAE leg of IPL 2021, as they beat Royals Challengers Bangalore by 6 wickets on Friday.

Kohli and Paddikal both scored half centuries, 53 and 70 runs, respectively. Bravo delivered the breakthrough for CSK as he got Kohli in first ball of 14th over. Once Kohli went to pavilion, RCB started losing their wickets on regular intervals and lost the momentum in the match. In last 4 overs of the match RCB made only 25 runs and lost 5 wickets. Despite of the start RCB had, they posted 156-6 and set the target of 157 for CSK. Bravo and Shardul Thakur took 3 and 2 wickets, respectively.

CSK responded strongly to the chase of 157 and all their batters batted beautifully on this small ground.  Ruturaj Gaikwad the CSK’s hero against MI, was once again team’s highest run scorer with 38 runs. He added 71 runs for first wicket with Faf du-Plessis. None of the RCB’s bowlers were effective, as every one of them got hammered by CSK. The duo of Dhoni-Raina completed the chase in 19th over of the innings.
