CSK defeated RCB by eight runs in a high-scoring thriller, all thanks to the brilliant batting performances from Devon Conway, Ajinkya Rahane, and Shivam Dube. These three batters helped CSK to post a total of 226/6 on board in the first innings. Among RCB bowlers, only Siraj had an impressive bowling figure of 1/30 in four overs.
Initially, in the run-chase, RCB were struggling as they lost two quick wickets inside the powerplay. The captain Faf du Plessis and Glenn Maxwell's 126-run partnership for the third wicket helped steady their batting innings. But after these two batter got dismissed in quick succession, Royal Challengers lost all momentum against the resilient CSK bowling attack. Dinesh Karthik's quick-cameo kept them in the game, but eventually they fell short of the target as their lack of depth in the batting order was quite evident to everyone.
