IPL 2020 Highlights, RCB vs CSK Match, Full Cricket Score: Gaikwad's unbeaten 65 guides Chennai to eight-wicket win over Bangalore

18:56 (IST)

That's it from us folks!

That was some match. Chennai Super Kings did incredibly well to restrict RCB to a meagre total of 145 with some incredible bowling! Bangalore did their best to fight back, taking a couple of early wickets, but ultimately, the skill of Ruturaj Gaikwad proved to be too much to handle for Virat Kohli's side. Here's where we bid you adieu, but of course, with today being a Sunday, the second match of the double-header is just about to start! Click here to tune in to our coverage of the Mumbai Indians' match against the Rajasthan Royals!

This is RCB’s seventh defeat in Green Jersey out of 10 IPL matches where they won the Green Jersey.

Chennai Super Kings win by eight wickets!

Chris Morris is out to bowl the penultimate over. He starts off well, with a dot, but is then hit over midwicket for four by Ruturaj Gaikwad. Chennai need just two more runs to secure what is only their fourth win of the season. Will they wrap it up in this over? Yes they will, and in some style! Gaikwad pulls over long leg for a six! Chennai win!

18:42 (IST)
four

FOUR! Ruturaj Gaikwad nonchalantly hits over midwicket to put CSK within two runs of a rare win. CSK 144/3

18:41 (IST)

After 18 overs,Chennai Super Kings 140/2 ( Ruturaj Gaikwad 55 , MS Dhoni (C) (W) 19)

I apologise for my comment about Dhoni being slow with the bat, he hammers a boundary over wide mid-off. That was hit with some strength, it was almost a six. With that said, the next five deliveries are all dots, so make of that what you will. CSK need 6 runs in 12 balls.

18:40 (IST)
four

FOUR! MS Dhoni absolutely wallops a length ball over mid-off! CSK 140/2

18:37 (IST)

After 17 overs,Chennai Super Kings 136/2 ( Ruturaj Gaikwad 55 , MS Dhoni (C) (W) 15)

Chahal's final over. He's got a wicket already, and he'll need to add to that tally in the next six deliveries if his team have any hope of winning this. No wickets though, just singles. For once, MS Dhoni's lethargic, lumbering approach to batting this season is working in Chennai Super Kings' favour. Five runs from the over.

18:33 (IST)

After 16 overs,Chennai Super Kings 131/2 ( Ruturaj Gaikwad 53 , MS Dhoni (C) (W) 13)

More and more it's looking inevitable that Chennai will reach the finish line. RCB desperately need wickets now. Kohli throws Saini back into the mix, can he come up with something special? All six deliveries are good, they're tight, well pitched, but they're not enough. Four runs come from the over, and CSK now need 15 runs in 24 balls.

18:30 (IST)

After 15 overs,Chennai Super Kings 127/2 ( Ruturaj Gaikwad 51 , MS Dhoni (C) (W) 11)

Been a while since we last saw Chris Morris. He starts off his third over with a dot, followed by a single and then a wide. The required run rate is 5.06, there's absolutely no reason to be giving away extras. He retakes the ball, and it's a single. A dot in between, before MS Dhoni hits him for back-to-back fours, Chennai are really cruising here. 19 runs from 30 needed. 

18:29 (IST)
four

FOUR! Identical boundary for MS Dhoni! He's showing real aggression here. CSK 127/2.

Structured bowling plans, depth in bowling stocks have made Virat Kohli's RCB a winning team

One of the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) videos that went viral on social media before the commencement of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 was titled the ‘yorker challenge’. The video shows each RCB bowler attempting to hit a target that is placed around the popping crease at the batsman’s end. While the bowlers go about their task the rest of the squad members sit alongside the pitch cheering each bowler on. It might not be the most creative of challenges, but the fact is Royal Challengers and bowling skills have never gone hand in hand.

For the duration of the IPL, Bangalore have always been a team that has built their foundation on batting. Their megastars have always been executioners that can wield their willows, but they have always found it difficult to find a series of bowlers that can perform at an admirable level. Before each season of IPL, the big question about the Royal Challengers is "they can always score the runs, but can they defend them?”.

IPL 2020 is different. Bangalore have won consistently matches on the back of their bowling. Last night they dismissed the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) for a paltry total of 84. The standout performer was Mohammad Siraj, who finished with figures of 3/8 from his four overs. It was Siraj’s only fourth match this season, but his control with the new ball was sublime as he sliced through the KKR's top-order.

Preview: Royal Challengers Bangalore lock horns with Chennai Super Kings in the 44th match of the Indian premier league in Dubai.

Eleven matches, 8 losses, three wins, 6 points. Bottom of the table. It's hard to believe but yes, these are numbers of a team that has qualified for the playoffs every year before this season and reached 8 finals out of 11 times. CSK have had a horror season so far and they are in huge danger of missing out on Playoffs for the first time in the history of the IPL, this season. They are on the verge of elimination but mathematically not out of it yet. They need to win all three games now and hope the other results go their way.

Their batting has flopped big time. Captain MS Dhoni hasn't fired and when given the opportunity, the youngsters also have failed to show the 'spark'. While the next three games will be about coming out and firing on all guns blazing it will be as much about preparation for next year and giving chances to players who haven't got one in the tournament.

"It is important for us have a clear picture about next year," Dhoni said after the loss against MI. "There are a lot of ifs and buts: the kind of auction we are looking into next year, where the venues will be. It is always good to give guys who have not so far got enough chances to form a settled playing XI. You give them enough chances to really give them a platform where they can perform and show their talent."

They need an all-round effort with batsmen and bowlers clicking in unison.

RCB, on the other hand, have been flying high and are second in the table with 14 points. Their perennial weakness - bowling - has turned into their strength this season, especially in the last few matches. They bundled out KKR for 84 in their last match. The struggling CSK batting line-up will face a huge challenge against the confident RCB bowling attack.

While there are no grave concerns with regards to the team composition, the form of Aaron Finch is a bit of a worry and RCB might look to get in Mooen Ali who can provide the bowling option as well.

With a formidable line-up, confidence and momentum on their side, RCB start off as favourites.
