IPL 2019, Match 39, RCB vs CSK – Twitter Erupts as Royal Challengers Bangalore Beat Chennai Super Kings by 1 Run
Last-Ball heroics from Parthiv Patel helped Royal Challengers Bangalore beat Chennai Super Kings by one run at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru.
Dale Steyn started Royal Challengers Bangalore in great style removing Shane Watson and Suresh Raina in the first over. Steyn who made a stunning debut continued his outstanding form to put Royal Challengers Bangalore ahead in the game. Chennai Super Kings were in a dire need of a partnership but Umesh Yadav double blow had the defending champions at 28 for four. Both Faf du Plessis and Kedar Jadhav top-edged while pulling to give easy catches to AB de Villiers.
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. The middle-order also made significant contributions to post a good total on the scoreboard. However, they lost skipper Virat Kohli early in the innings to reel at 11 for one in 2.3 overs before Parthiv and AB de Villiers combined to bail their side out of danger. Parthiv focused on rotating the strike while de Villiers played before getting out on 25.
Akshdeep Nath – promoted up the order also played a quickfire knock to take the score almost to the 100-run mark, Nath chipped in with 24 runs before Moeen Ali’s little carnage helped them go past 150 runs. Parthiv Patel registered 53 runs off 37 balls including two boundaries and four sixes to put a challenging total on the board.
Uff! Some game! Cricket needs Dhoni to write its scripts.

If Saini is properly groomed, with that pace he is deadly, if he masters yorkers, well we got another Bumrah! #RCBvCSK

Cricket is a team sport. For whatever AB and Kohli are worth, you can't win games without a Steyn in your side too. #RCBVCSK

#RCBvCSK https://t.co/Yuzp9qufjb with Shorey and Faf with Billings instead of Jadhav
2. Open with Rayudu and Faf and play Billings at 4.
Murali Vijay can be considered today atleast he'll play safe and CSK will be wicketless after PP

Sirji, Dhoni is really good. But now I really want to ask you – at what point would you actually start appreciating #Kohli ? You have a problem if he scores a century, you have a problem when his bowling unit is good. Is it possible for you to appreciate both ? #RCBvCSK
