Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) openers Virat Kohli and Devdutt Padikkal partnered for 111 runs for the first wicket but the side could still manage only 156/6 at the end of 20 overs versus Chennai Super Kings (CSK) on Friday. The last 30 balls saw RCB lose 5 wickets for just 38 runs.
After being asked to bat first, RCB openers Virat Kohli (53) and Devdutt Padikkal gave their team a flying start and partnered for 111 runs in just 13.2 overs. However, the innings soon collapsed after the departure of Kohli as CSK bowlers pulled back things with regular wickets. Shadrul Thakur picked the important wickets of Padikkal and AB de Villiers, while Dwayne Bravo got the better of Kohli, Glenn Maxwell and Harshal Patel. With 5 wins in 8 matches, RCB are placed third on the points table.
BRILLIANT FORM CSK!
