Key Performances and Playoff Prospects

Glenn Maxwell had a decent performance in the match. He scored 16 runs while batting, hitting 1 six and 2 fours in just five balls. The first over saw the dismissal of Ruturaj Gaikwad, followed by Daryl Mitchell being sent back by Yash Dayal. A partnership of 66 runs was formed by Rachin Ravindra and Ajinkya Rahane until Rahane got out, putting Chennai Super Kings in trouble. When Rachin Ravindra was on 61 runs, he was run out, changing the course of the game. Shivam Dubey also couldn’t make an impact and was dismissed after scoring 7 runs.

Mitchell Santner was sent to the home by Mohammed Siraj. When he was on 3 runs, Faf du Plessis took a brilliant catch. There were expectations from Ravindra Jadeja and Mahendra Singh Dhoni but nothing happened. The distance between the run and the ball increased. Yash Dayal bowled brilliantly in the last over. Last season, he was out after hitting five sixes. It was Yash Dayal who showed RCB the path to the playoffs
