Chennai Super Kings finally got a near-perfect game with both bat and ball as they thumped Royal Challengers Bangalore by an 8-wicket margin. Despite the duo of Virat Kohli (50 off 43) and AB de Villiers (39 off 36) batting for more than ten overs, the RCB team could only finish with 145/6 in their 20 overs. Ruturaj Gaikwad anchored the chase with an unbeaten 51-ball 65 while Faf du Plessis (25 off 13) and Ambati Rayudu (39 off 27) took the risks to keep the required run rate in check on a slow track.
Here are all the statistical highlights from Chennai Super Kings’ 8-wicket win during RCB vs CSK:
Not so lucky jersey for RCB:
2-7 – Royal Challengers Bangalore has got a win-loss record of 2-7 in the IPL whenever they wore Green Jersey, a tradition which they began in 2011. RCB won in green during the 2011 and 2016 seasons where they ended up in the finals but cashed out in the league phase when they lost in 2012, 2013, 2014, 2017, 2018 and 2019. RCB’s fixture in green jersey ended in a washout during the 2015 edition where they got eliminated in the 2nd Qualifier.
CSK gets the better of RCB yet again:
16 – Chennai Super Kings now have defeated the Royal Challengers Bangalore on 16 occasions in the IPL; the most number of wins for them against any team in the league. The 16 defeats against CSK are also the most for RCB over any team in the IPL alongside 16 against Mumbai Indians.
Gaikwad’s maiden fifty:
23y 268d – Ruturaj Gaikwad, at the age of 23 years and 268 days, became the 4th youngest player to score a fifty in the IPL for Chennai Super Kings. He is also the youngest Indian to score an IPL fifty for CSK since the start of 2011.
2 – The opening pair of Gaikwad and Faf du Plessis is only the 2nd in the IPL to score 25+ runs and also claim 2+ catches in the same match. The RCB duo of Parthiv Patel and Virat Kohli had unbeaten 40+ scores during their 10-wicket win in the 2018 edition against Kings XI Punjab.
Kohli’s fifty with just two boundaries:
2 – The two boundary shots (1 four, 1 six) by Virat Kohli during his 43-ball 50 are the fewest for any player during a 50+ score in the IPL. Four players before Virat hit as few as three boundaries while scoring 50+ runs in an IPL inning.
In terms of boundary runs, the previous fewest during a 50+ score in the IPL was 12 runs by Dinesh Karthik who hit three fours during his unbeaten 39-ball 50 for Gujarat Lions against RCB in 2016.
8 – Virat Kohli now has eight fifties in the IPL against the Chennai Super Kings; the most by any player against CSK in the league. Kohli went past Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma who have seven 50+ scores apiece against the Super Kings.
Kohli @ 200 sixes:
200 – The lone six during RCB vs CSK by Virat Kohli was the 200th maximum of his IPL career. Kohli is now the 5th player and only the 3rd from India to hit as many as 200 sixes in the IPL.
