M Chinnaswamy Stadium saw two brilliants rivals in Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) clash against one another. It was MS Dhoni going Mano-a-mano with Virat Kohli on Kohli’s home turf.
RCB batted first and put up 205/8 on the board on the back of the fifties by Quinton de Kock and AB de Villiers and the finishing touches of Mandeep Singh. RCB knew that despite putting 205, they were around 20 runs short of their desired target.
CSK needed a good start, which they didn’t get with Watson, Raina, and Jadeja getting out early. But then the brilliant Ambati Rayudu (82) and MS Dhoni (70*) came together to add 101 runs for the 5th wicket. Bravo hit a six and a four to stamp his mark on the game and MS Dhoni finished the match with a brilliant six off Anderson to take CSK to a grand win.
Twitter couldn’t contain themselves after seeing Rayudu and Dhoni perform like this and showered their adulation on Twitter.
