Chennai Super Kings (CSK) ended up registering their first win of the IPL 2022 season with a comfortable victory over Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) at the DY Patil Stadium on Tuesday.

Put in to bat first again, Chennai was down to 36/2 with Ruturaj Gaikwad and Moeen Ali back in the hut. At the 10 over mark, they were crawling towards an average total but the final ten overs changed the complexion of the game.

Robin Uthappa and Shivam Dube stitched a memorable 165-run partnership for the 3rd wicket. The first ten overs fetched only 60 runs but the final ten went for a whopping 156 runs, completely tilting the scales in Chennai’s favor. Dube fell just 5 runs short of his maiden IPL century.

In the run chase, Bangalore’s main batters, Faf du Plessis and Virat Kohli were back in the hut inside the first 5 overs. Glenn Maxwell injected some much-needed momentum into the chase but he was done in by Ravindra Jadeja.

Shahbaz Ahmed and Suyash Prabhudessai tried their level best to keep RCB in the chase. Add to that a stunning cameo from Dinesh Karthik and Bangalore was afloat. However, Dwayne Bravo cleaned up Karthik soon after to end any hopes.
