In the end, CSK restricted RCB to 145/6 at the end of 20 overs with the help of Sam Curran (3/19) and Deepak Chahar (2/31). CSK were given a good start but RCB struck back with the wicket of Faf du Plessis. Ambati Rayudu (39) and Ruturaj Gaikwad (65*) built a steady partnership from then on and MS Dhoni shepherded the chase to a close.
