RCB Vs CSK, IPL 2024 Match 68 – Here’s What Happened In The Epic Encounter

Electing to bowl first, CSK didn’t get off to a good start, as Faf Du Plessis and Virat Kohli started their assault of runs over the bowlers from the word go itself and in the process, registered a vital 78-run opening` stand, and all the RCB batters lived up to the task as their vital contributions led the side to 218/5.

Needing 201 to qualify, CSK got off to a horrid start as Glen Maxwell got rid of Ruturaj Gaikwad on first ball as he departed for a golden duck. Extremely impressive bowling saw RCB bowlers pick another wicket in the form of Daryl Mitchell, as Chinnaswamy erupted in joy. A vital partnership formed between Ajinkya Rahane and Rachin Ravindra, before the dismissal of the former and form there on, the downfall of CSK batting started.

Apart from Rachin Ravindra, no other batter lived up to the billing and even a late scare from Ravindra Jadeja and MS Dhoni couldn’t stop RCB from scripting victory as Yash Dayal realised his redemption arc with a crucial 20th over, which saw him dismiss the great MS Dhoni.

RCB skipper Faf Du Plessis was awarded the Man of the Match award for his exceptional batting, but in a wholesome gesture, he dedictaed his award to Yash Dayal, whom he called ‘vital’ in RCB’s victory over CSK.
