Since then, Ambati Rayudu and skipper MS Dhoni combined well to bail Chennai out of danger. They added 55 runs for the fifth wicket before Yuzvendra Chahal dismantled the stumps of Rayudu. Meanwhile, Dhoni looked in good touch rotating the strikes while the odd boundaries kept coming. However, a complete mixup between Dhoni and Ravindra Jadeja send Jadeja back to the pavilion. But MS Dhoni almost made the impossible taking the game to the wire. With 26 needed off the last overs, MS Dhoni hit the ball like never to bring the equation to two for one delivery before Parthiv Patel’s moment of brilliance won it for the Royal Challengers Bangalore.

Previously, Royal Challengers Bangalore posted 161 runs at the end of 20 overs after contributions from Parthiv Patel.
