It was a superb evening for Cricket fans as Virat Kohli’s Royal Challengers Bangalore was up against Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s Chennai Super Kings. In an exciting clash, CSK emerged victorious and defeated RCB by six wickets.
Even though Royal Challengers Bangalore got off to a great start, they failed to finish well. The team lost five wickets in the last four overs and could manage only 25 runs. As a result, RCB once again couldn’t capitalise on their batting depth and have now lost two matches in a row.
Chasing 155, Chennai Super Kings too enjoyed a fabulous start- thanks to the opening stand of Ruturaj Gaikwad and Faf du Plessis. Even though both the openers got out in successive overs, Ambati Rayudu and Suresh Raina anchored the innings nicely and finished it off well.
With this victory, CSK have gone to the top of the points table of the IPL 2021. On the other hand, RCB is still there on the third spot.
Twitter Goes Crazy as Chennai Super Kings beat Royal Challengers Bangalore at IPL 2021
Fans once again took a dig at the batting performance of RCB. One even compared them to the South African Nation Cricket Team after noting their ability to choke so badly.
The Twitterati also made fun of RCB for their poor form in the second phase of IPL 2021. Before this, they lost two matches in seven games. However, after this, they have now lost two back-to-back matches.
Fans on Twitter also hailed MS Dhoni for his quick-fire 11 runs off 9 deliveries. Interestingly, he also hit two boundaries in his knock.
CSK have now won two back-to-back matches in the second spell of the IPL 2021. Can they beat the odds and lift the IPL trophy for the fourth time this year?
