After being sent to bat first, RCB got off to a blistering start through their openers Virat Kohli (53) and Devdutt Padikkal (70). But after the end of their 111-run partnership, things went south for Bangalore as they were restricted to 156/6 at the end of 20 overs. Chasing, Faf du Plessis (31) and Ruturaj Gaikwad (38) provided a quick start to CSK’s innings. Despite losing wickets in the middle overs, CSK romped to victory with 11 balls to spare owing to MS Dhoni (11*) and Suresh Raina’s (17*) late cameos.
