A nail biting match between RCB and CSK couldn’t have been better if Albie Morkel turned the game into CSK side.
A sensational cricket shown by Morkel led CSK to win the match by 5 wickets at Chennai. chasing the tough 206 target,(the highest in IPL5) , along with Morkel hitting the ground, Faf du Plessis (71) and MS Dhoni (41) were also other notable scorers in the match.
The gamble done by Vettori giving the 19th over to Virat Kohli lead to the mess. Earlier, Chris Gayle (68) had a good return to the match with Kohli (57) went up to the mammoth of 206 but was all gambled by CSK hitters.
Muttaih Murlidharan gave a better start to RCB by giving a much breakthrough after Chennai started to put a good fight. Daniel Vettori’s decision of choosing to bat first was good one, but got a bad taste of loss in the second inning.
