Bangalore got the start that they needed, but after that, there was not much assistance, from any of the batters. Padikkal went hard in the Powerplay, but after he lost his wicket shortly after, it was a complete implosion from Bangalore. No one of the batters could handle the spin twins of Jadeja and Tahir and that means that Chennai ends Bangalore’s unbeaten run this season.
Chennai Super Kings Innings:
Earlier in the day, some brilliant hitting was firstly shown by Faf du Plessis, and then some mind-blowing batting by Jadeja. In the final over of the game, where they composed 37 runs, Chennai saw finishing with a top total in the first innings. They backed that display with a brilliant performance in the field and with the ball and they won the game comfortably in the end.
Chennai was on the back foot only in the Powerplay of the run chase and even then, they snared the wicket of Kohli and Padikkal. When Jadeja and Tahir were introduced into the attack, Bangalore completely crumbled. Jadeja was on fire with the bat, with the ball, as he snared 3 wickets, and also scored a run out. Tahir complimented him well. Thakur was also very economical as he ended with figures of 4-0-11-1. Overall, it was a complete performance in the Men in Yellow.
Post-match Presentation | Man Of The Match:-
No prizes for wondering the MAN OF THE MATCH that has been proudly presented to Ravindra Jadeja. He has been exceptional with the bat, with the ball, and also out on the field. He took responsibility towards the end of their batting innings and rocked Chennai to a top score. Later, with the ball and out on the field, he put up a god-like display which has propelled Chennai to the top of the table.
Winning and defeating, this has brought us to an end of another game full of thrill. Chennai has shown a brilliant performance from their end and the Royal Challengers would definitely look after to triumph in some later match.
