Dale Steyn was all fired up during RCB's defence of 162 against CSK. He put the defending champions in a spot of bother in the very first over of their run chase. He picked up two wickets in consecutive deliveries. He first got rid of Shane Watson and then in the very next delivery, he disturbed Suresh Raina's timber with a superb yorker. The South African speedster finished his bowling spell with figures of 2/29 in his four overs at an economy of 7.25.

MS Dhoni played an unbelievable knock after CSK were in a precarious situation at 28/4. The CSK skipper added 55 runs for the fifth wicket with Ambati Rayudu. Dhoni registered his highest score in IPL. He scored a magnificent 48-ball unbeaten 84 at a strike rate of 175.00 and including seven sixes.

Earlier, Chennai Super Kings won the toss and decided to bowl first. It was not the start that Royal Challengers Bangalore wanted as they lost their captain Virat Kohli early. Kohli who had scored a match-winning ton in the last game against Kolkata Knight Riders was dismissed for nine in the third over after he was caught behind by his opposite number MS Dhoni off Deepak Chahar. Parthiv Patel then added 47 runs with AB de Villiers. Veteran wicket-keeper batsman Parthiv Patel once again played a vital knock for RCB. The southpaw played a spectacular cameo of a 37-ball 53 at a strike rate of 143.24 which included two boundaries and four maximums.

His cameo helped RCB get to a respectable total of 161/7 in their 20 overs.
