Brendon McCullum, Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers were dismissed cheaply while Parthiv Patel was the sole fighter who scored a brilliant 53. Chennai spinners -- Ravindra Jadeja and Harbhajan Singh -- shared five wickets between them as they spun a web around the visitors.

However, Tim Southee provided a final flourish in the dying moments of the game to help his team cross the three figure back. Apart from this he strung together a 34-run partnership in the end with Mohammed Siraj. For Chennai, Jadeja was the pick of the bowlers as he finished with figures of 3/18 in his stipulated overs. RCB will have to dig deep and produce a spirited performance to defeat the formidable CSK in order to make it to the play-offs. (Scorecard)

Ravindra Jadeja grabs the Man of the Match award for his tremendous bowling effort. His figures of 4-0-18-3 never allowed Bangalore to get going. That's all from this game. It was a one-sided affair and it has pushed Bangalore on the brink of elimination. Next up, Hyderabad are facing Delhi in the second match of the evening. The first ball isn't far away. See you there!

Bangalore fought hard with the ball but they never had enough on the board. Their spinners, as expected, managed to build some pressure but failed to grab wickets at regular intervals. Umesh Yadav once again was very impressive and Colin de Grandhomme also left his mark. Altogether, it was a good bowling performance but the batting department let the visitors down.

!

Clinical stuff from Chennai! Their bowlers set it up beautifully for them by restricting a star-studded Bangalore batting lineup to a paltry total and then their batsmen scaled down the target without much discomfort. The partnership between Ambati Rayudu and Suresh Raina didn't allow enough opening for Bangalore upfront and then in spite of losing a few quick wickets, Chennai crossed the line quite easily. Once again it was MS Dhoni who stood tall till the end and played yet another eye-catching innings.

Yuzvendra Chahal to MS Dhoni

Appeal for an lbw but the umpire turns to signal for a no ball. Quicker one on middle, skidding down, Dhoni tries to heave but misses to get hit on the back leg. An unsuccessful appeal put by the leggie. Missing leg, probably. Free Hit coming up...
