Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) squared off in the 22nd match of the IPL 2022 at the DY Patil Stadium in Navi Mumbai. CSK finally opened their account, after four losses, handing RCB their second defeat of the season and defending their mammoth total of 216 runs.

Winning the toss, Faf du Plessis elected to chase in the game. CSK had a poor start to the game, losing Ruturaj Gaikwad in the powerplay, and the top-order batters struggled to score in that duration. A mishap led to Moeen Ali being run out just as the powerplay ended. At the end of 10 overs, CSK had managed to put up only 60 runs losing two wickets.

But in a turn of events, CSK put up the highest score of IPL 2022 as they went on to score 216/4. Robin Uthappa and Shivam Dube shared a 165-run stand for the third wicket, marking the highest partnership this season. The former scored an 88(50), and the latter put up an unbeaten knock of 95*(46), falling short of just five runs from getting his maiden IPL century. CSK added 156 runs in the final 10 overs, with Uthappa and Dube sharing 17 sixes among them.

Mahesh Theekshana’s four-wicket haul gave CSK an upper hand in the chase

Speaking of the chase, CSK destroyed RCB’s top order in the blink of an eye as they managed to dismiss skipper Faf, opener Anuj Rawat and Virat Kohli in the powerplay. And just when Glenn Maxwell started firing, Ravindra Jadeja knocked him out of the game- the seventh time he has done so in T20 cricket.

New entrant Suyash Prabhudessai and Shahbaz Ahmed steered the innings in the middle and covered up for RCB’s loss in the game, posting a 50+ partnership for the fifth wicket. It was Mahesh Theekshana who sent both of them packing to add four wickets to his scalp. Dinesh Karthik, who had remained unbeaten in all his previous innings had to lose his armour to Dwayne Bravo as he dismissed him for 34(14). CSK eventually defeated RCB by 23 runs to register their first victory of the tournament, breaking RCB’s three-match winning streak.
