Chennai’s slap in bowling too, Bangalore’s poor performance
Bangalore had a huge target of 217 and the team was under pressure from the start and lost wickets regularly. The opening pair of skipper Faf Duplessis and Anuj Rawat did not start as expected. Duplessis was dismissed for eight and Rawat for 12. While star batsman Virat Kohli was expected to make a big innings but he collected the pavilion with just one run. The team lost the top three wickets for 42 runs. Later in the middle order, Glenn Maxwell, Shahbaz Ahmed, Suyash Prabhudesai and Dinesh Karthik tried their best but their efforts proved futile against the massive target.
Maxwell batted aggressively but could not play big innings. He was dismissed for 26 off 11 balls with the help of two fours and two sixes. While Shahbaz hit 41 off 27 balls with four fours. Suyash also contributed 34 off 18 balls. He hit five fours and a six. Dinesh Karthik hit 34 off 14 balls with the help of two fours and three sixes. For Chennai, Mahish Thikshana took four wickets, Ravindra Jadeja three and Mukesh Chaudhary and Dwayne Bravo took one wicket each.
Uthappa and Shivam Dubey’s explosive batting, Chennai’s massive score
Chennai Super Kings came on the field after Royal Challengers Bangalore won the toss and invited to bat first. It was started by Rituraj Gaekwad and Robin Uthappa. But the opening pair did not last long. Rituraj Gaekwad was dismissed for 17. Moin Ali was run out for three. The team lost two wickets for 36 runs.
However, then Robin Uthappa and Shivam Dubey caused a run-off. The duo laundered the minds of the Bangalore bowlers and hit them with a chomer. No Bangalore bowler was able to control his attack. Uthappa and Shivam Dubey shared a 165-run partnership. In the end, Vanindu Hasaranga managed to break the tie. By then, however, Chennai had rocked the masses. Uthappa hit 88 off 50 balls with four fours and nine sixes. Shivam Dubey was unbeaten on 95 off 46 balls. He hit five fours and eight sixes. For Bangalore, Hasaranga was quick for two and Josh Hazlewood was quick for one.
