RCB set formidable target for CSK in do-or-die clash

RCB set formidable target for CSK in do-or-die clash

Bengaluru, May 18 (UNI) In a high-voltage clash at Chinnaswamy Stadium, the Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) posted a challenging total against the Chennai Super Kings (CSK), setting the stage for a gripping contest in an IPL match.
The match, witnessed by a packed stadium, saw RCB's batsmen showcasing their prowess on a pitch that gradually eased down after an initial bout of rain. Despite facing some turning deliveries, RCB openers, led by Virat Kohli (47 off 29 3x4s 4x6s) and Faf du Plessis (54 off 39 3x4s 3x6s), exhibited commendable resilience, laying a solid foundation for the team's innings.
Kohli, eyeing a half-century, fell short as Mitchell Santner struck in the 10th over, dismissing the star India batsman. However, du Plessis continued his impressive form, notching up a fifty before an unfortunate run-out ended his innings.
The middle order, led by Rajat Patidar (41 off 23 2x4s 4x6s) and Cameron Green (38* off 17 3x4s 3x6s), further bolstered RCB's total with a formidable partnership, entertaining the enthusiastic spectators with their stroke play.
Late cameos from Dinesh Karthik (14 off 6) and Glenn Maxwell (16 off 5 2x4s 1x6)propelled RCB to a commanding total of 218/5 at the end of their innings.
The match holds significance as it mirrors last year's final, where CSK successfully chased down a similar target. With CSK's reputation for excelling in pressure situations, the contest promises an enthralling battle between two formidable teams.
As the stage is set for CSK's chase, the cricketing world awaits eagerly to witness whether they can replicate their past heroics or if RCB's bowlers can defend the imposing total.
