In a commanding performance, Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) posted a formidable total of 218 for 5 against Chennai Super Kings (CSK). Faf du Plessis led the charge with a brilliant 54, well supported by Virat Kohli’s 47, Devdutt Padikkal’s 41, Cameron Green’s 38, despite Shardul Thakur’s 2 wickets for CSK.

In response, Chennai Super Kings fought valiantly, with Rachin Ravindra’s impressive 61 and Ravindra Jadeja’s unbeaten 42*. However, Yash Dayal’s exceptional bowling display of 4 wickets for 42 runs restricted CSK to 191 for 7. Ultimately, RCB emerged victorious by 27 runs, showcasing their dominance and securing a crucial win in their quest for IPL glory.

The tension reached its peak as Chennai Super Kings (CSK) came tantalizingly close to victory. With just 10 runs needed off the last two balls to secure a spot in the playoffs, the experienced Ravindra Jadeja, who had previously delivered crucial performances for CSK, including in their title win last year, stood at the crease. However, RCB’s Yash Dayal had other plans.

Dayal delivered two masterful off-pace length balls, denying Jadeja and CSK the opportunity to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat. Earlier in the over, Dayal had faced a daunting challenge after being hit for a massive six by MS Dhoni on the first ball. However, he showed great composure, using a back-of-the-hand slower delivery to dismiss Dhoni, caught at deep square leg.
