Chris Gayle who can make the dream of RCB come true of winning this cracker of a contest. As everyone settled down for the second innings after the spectacular show put down by the home team.

The RCB’s team depending on the man army of Gayle was welcomed by Ravichandran Ashwin by removing the openers especially the blaster for a duck in the very first over. It was the time everything went wrong for RCB but there were hopes back on as the third wicket partnership between Virat Kohli, AB De Villiers turned out to be a competitive one, only till Shatab Jakati and Raina took the wicket of one each.

The hopes of all RCB fans were dumped by the bowlers of CSK as the RCB’s supporters started leaving the ground with a heavy heart .It was all assured win for CSK as the crowd was unstoppable in the last winning over where they thrashed a 58 run win over RCB by restricting them to 158/ 8.
