In a game that saw 444 runs in 40 overs at the belter of a track, the fans were entertained to the fullest. Batters from both sides went all guns blazing but CSK bowlers held on to their nerves in the death to pocked two points.
CSK now have six points in three wins out of five games and, with that, the MS Dhoni-led side climbed to the third position in the points table.
Put in to bat first, Chennai Super Kings posted a mammoth 226/6 in the stipulated 20 overs as Devon Conway and Shivam Dube slammed sensational half-centuries and guided their team to a big total.
New Zealand batter Conway scored 83 off 45 balls while young India batter Dube played a whirlwind knock of 52 off 27 deliveries. Ambati Rayudu (14 off 6), Moeen Ali (19* off 9) and Ravindra Jadeja (10 off 8) played good cameos for CSK.
In response, Faf du Plessis (62 off 33 balls) and Glenn Maxwell (76 off 36 balls) played superb knocks and their century partnership for the third wicket kept RCB in the hunt.
After Du Plessis and Maxwell’s departure, CSK pulled things back brilliantly and ended up winning the game. Tushar Deshpande emerged as the pick of the bowler for CSK.
