Virat Kohli (50) and AB de Villiers (39) did their best to stabilise the innings but it never took off in terms of the runrate. In the end, CSK restricted RCB to 145/6 at the end of 20 overs with the help of Sam Curran (3/19) and Deepak Chahar (2/31). CSK were given a good start but RCB struck back with the wicket of Faf du Plessis. Ambati Rayudu (39) and Ruturaj Gaikwad (65*) built a steady partnership from then on and MS Dhoni shepherded the chase to a close.

After hitting big with a four and a six in the last over to Ali, the Chennai duo -- Gaikwad (37*) and Rayudu (20*) -- continue with their momentum. The result isn't out of the hands of RCB though, if they can take a page out of KXIP's book who stopped SRH in the death overs to win by 12 runs. The pressure's on Chahal and Washington.

17:04 (IST)25 Oct 2020
Chennai need 146 runs to win!

MS Dhoni must be really proud of the statement his men have made in Dubai! Owing to an excellent bowling performance, CSK manage to restrict RCB to 145/6 at the end of 20 overs. Sam Curran scalped three while Deepak Chahar nabbed two wickets. Virat Kohli (50) got a fifty but their innings never looked headed towards a big score. Now, it's upto the bowlers in green now.

16:59 (IST)25 Oct 2020
DISMISSED!

16:50 (IST)25 Oct 2020
WICKET!

After hitting his 200th six in IPL against Jadeja, Kohli now loses his partner. As soon as ABD hit the ball, he knew that he had to go. Chahar's delivery wasn't middled properly and it goes straight into the hands of Faf. He goes for 39. RCB: 128/3 (17.3 overs)

16:40 (IST)25 Oct 2020
RCB get their runrate spiked

Kohli (33*) and ABD (37*) have settled in well with both batsmen playing more than 30 balls here and Dubai can expect a big finish here. The singles don't stop at all, but on top of that ABD smacks Monu for a four to the long leg fence. RCB: 114/2 (16 overs)

16:33 (IST)25 Oct 2020
Kohli gets his groove on

After wading off ball after ball, Kohli (28*) finally ups his ante and hits his first boundary of the innings on his 27th ball. After ABD (27*) sacked Tahir for a four, the RCB captain hammers a delivery straight to the ropes. 11 runs off the over. RCB: 97/2 (14 overs)

16:25 (IST)25 Oct 2020
Kohli, ABD taking it very slow

The spinners have helped CSK restrict the opposition runrate in the middle overs. Apart from rare fours, singles and twos have been the order of business in Dubai so far. Santner ends his spell on 1/23 and his partner Tahir continues putting the pressure on the two talismanci batsmen -- Kohli (21*) and de Villiers (18*). The veteran spinner gives away just six runs. RCB: 81/2 (12 overs)

16:13 (IST)25 Oct 2020
CSK in the driving seat still

After a gap of 15 balls, Bangalore get a boundary finally. Tahir and Santner had spun a web around both Kohli and ABD in the previous overs, but the South African finally times a brilliant drive. The ball is still in the court of CSK though. RCB: 63/2 (9 overs)

16:05 (IST)25 Oct 2020
