With not much to lose, CSK played freely today, and as a result walked away with a comfortable win over RCB, who would have hoped to top the table after winning. Gaikwad 65*(51) and Rayudu 39(27) starred with the bat as CSK chased down 145 with 8 balls to spare.
Bottom-placed Chennai Super Kings will face in-from Royal Challengers Bangalore in match 44 of IPL 2020 at Dubai, in the first game on Sunday. CSK have had a horrible run in IPL 2020 with only three wins from 11 matches, and look set to miss the play-offs for the first time in IPL history (notwithstanding their suspended years). RCB, in complete contrast, have 14 points from 10 games, and trail Mumbai and Delhi only the basis on net run-rate.
