After being given the opportunity to bat first, CSK posted an impressive score of 226 for six thanks to the contributions of Devon Conway, who smacked 83 off of 45 deliveries, and Shivam Dube, who blazed away to 52 off of just 27 balls.

The CSK hitters came out swinging from the very beginning, which made things difficult for the bowling assault of the RCB team.

CSK got off to a strong start because of Conway, who first blasted Wayne Parnell for a boundary in the 2nd over and then hoisted the South African through the fine-leg boundary just three deliveries later. This helped CSK get off to a positive start.

Gaikwad had a difficult time batting and was dismissed in the third over when he was caught by Parnell in the middle of the field off a ball from Mohammed Siraj.

Conway was unfazed as he proceeded about doing his job in style, lifting Vijaykumar Vyshak above the keeper for a boundary, and a ball afterward, Rahane scored 37 runs off just 20 deliveries and completed a brilliant hook stroke that sent the ball into the spectators. Conway was unfazed as he proceeded about his job in style.

When Rahane faced Parnell in the 6th over, he appeared to be in the mindset of proving a point, as he hit Parnell for 2 fours and a maximum to collect 15 runs from the over.

Maxwell was brought into the attack during the seventh over, and Conway promptly hit one out of the park for him. The pair gave the impression that they were in menacing form as they scored a four or a six in practically every over that they batted together.

Conway was in top form as he hit Wanindu Hasaranga de Silva for a big six over midwicket in the tenth over. However, the dangerous-looking partnership was broken by the Sri Lankan spinner when he clean bowled Rahane. Conway was at the top of his game. With a pair of runs in the same over, Conway reached his second fifty in a row, bringing his total to 150.

After that, the New Zealander hit Hasaranga for a four, bringing CSK’s total to 97 for 2 at the halfway point in the match. Conway maintained his onslaught by smashing debutant Vijaykumar for consecutively while Shivam Dube announced his entry at the wicket with a massive 6 off Maxwell.

Young Vijaykumar’s excursion turned up to be a living nightmare as Conway hit another maximum by clobbering the bowler over the fine-leg boundary.

Dube ensured that he would not be left in the dust by smashing Harshal Patel beyond long-on for a further six runs. The Indian hitter kept going and hit a four by driving Siraj over midwicket, and then he hit a six by hooking a slower bounce from the fast bowler over the deep leg.

Mahipal Lomror and Virat Kohli had both been dismissed within the first two overs of the RCB’s chase of the enormous goal, and the team was in a precarious position. However, Glenn Maxwell scored 76 runs and RCB skipper Faf du Plessis scored 62 runs had other plans, as they quickly accumulated 126 runs in the third wicket in only 10.1 overs to put their team back in the game.

CSK were under an incredible amount of pressure, and dropping catches throughout the middle overs did not assist their situation very much. However, CSK was able to pull the game back into some kind of a competitive balance when they successfully bowled out both the set hitters, du Plessis and Maxwell, in rapid succession.

Then Dinesh Karthik scored 28 runs and Shahbaz Ahmed who scored 12 runs kept RCB on the course, but in the final stages, they fizzled out when they were put under pressure. And RCB’s run chase was finished at 218/8, falling short by just 8 runs of the enormous mark.

The Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) got off to a terrible start, as they lost Kohli after he hooked on to a delivery from Akash Singh. If Maheesh Theekshana hadn’t dropped a snowboarder from Lomror at the halfway point of the race, Akash could have had a better chance of winning.

After being apprehended by Ruturaj Gaikwad at the cover point, Lomror did not survive for very long and eventually left. Maxwell showed that he was serious about the game by smashing Akash for two maximums in the next over, while Du Plessis smacked Despande for two boundaries and a maximum in the same over.

In the following over, after Du Plessis had shown off his repertoire of strokes, Akash was the one who took the brunt of his anger by giving up a pair of fours and a maximum.

Both Maxwell and Du Plessis were in devastating form and didn’t spare any of the CSK bowlers, hitting fours and sixes at whim. They were able to do so because of their harsh approach.

While du Plessis reached his fifty off of only 23 deliveries, Maxwell reached his fifty off of 24 deliveries. After that, the Australian hit a massive six, helping the RCB to speed to 121 for 2 in just 10 overs.

Theekshana got the best of Maxwell when he tricked him into hitting a skier when Maxwell was looking for a big shot, and MS Dhoni finished the job to break up the potentially dangerous combination. Dhoni was given another lifter off Moeen Ali after du Plessis was out in the following over, which made things much more difficult for RCB.

Karthik, a senior batsman for RCB, kept his team in the game by hitting some cheeky boundaries when they needed 58 runs off the final five overs. Additionally, Ruturaj Gaikwad gave him a life off Deshpande in the seventeenth over -. Karthik, though, was eventually run out by Tushar Deshpande for three runs, which put an end to any remaining RCB ambitions.


In a high-scoring and enthralling Indian Premier League encounter that took place on Monday at M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru, an overall score of 444 runs was made over the course of 40 overs.
