Earlier, after wining the toss RCB skipper Faf du Plessis invited CSK to bat first. During the powerplay overs, RCB bowlers restricted CSK openers as last year’s Orange Cap – Ruturaj Gaikwad failed once again.
Moeen Ali, who came at no 3, was dismissed by a super fielding effort from debutant Suyash Prabhudessai at point. Shivam Dube & Robin Uthappa rebuilded the innings for first few overs and then teed off RCB bowlers. The Uthappa-Dube duo added 165 runs in just 12.1 overs.
While Robin Uthappa struggled for timing initially but later punished all RCB bowlers. He went on to score 88 runs off just 50 deliveries including 9 monstrous sixes and 4 boundaries.
On the other end, Shivam Dube tonked sixes at will and looked in sublime touch. Dube remained unbeaten at 95* runs off just 46 deliveries as CSK set a huge total of 216/4 in 20 overs. Hasaranga de Silva took 2 wickets for 35 runs in his 3 overs while Hazlewood took 1 wicket in his spell.
