IPL 2022 Highlights - RCB Vs CSK Bangalore Beat Chennai by 13 Runs

Watch IPL 2022 Highlights of RCB vs CSK Bangalore's thrilling 13-run win over Chennai Super Kings. Robin Uthappa hits a career-best 5000 runs in the tournament while the RCB batting line-up dominates the Chennai Super Kings. CSK's playoff hopes are all but over and they are in trouble.

RCB vs CSK Bangalore beat Chennai Super Kings by 13 runs

The Royal Challengers Bangalore are aiming to bounce back from their recent defeat against the Gujarat Titans. While Virat Kohli is back in form after his dismissal against the Gujarat Titans‚ the team is desperate to get back to winning ways. CSK are unbeaten in two games and will look to win a third straight match to gain ground on RCB. The Royal Challengers Bangalore bowlers did an excellent job of limiting the Chennai Super Kings to 174/7 from their 20 overs. The RCB bowlers were led by Harshal Patel‚ who helped the team to chase the target. After losing two wickets in the powerplay‚ the team opted to bat first. This gave RCB plenty of time to set up their batting order and regain control of the game. RCB finish on 173/8 after scoring 217 runs from their twenty overs. DK finishes with a rumorous 26-ball cameo for the RCB. He survives an lbw appeal in the last over and punishes Pretorius for a missed opportunity. After an outfield collapse‚ Theekshana takes a spectacular catch from deep backward square leg. Royal Challengers Bangalore beat Chennai Super Kings by 13 runs in the 49th match of the IPL 2022 season. This victory has helped them move into the top four in the points table. The Chennai Super Kings‚ on the other hand‚ now face a difficult road to the playoffs. So‚ let's look at the key moments from the game. RCB got off to a great start in the powerplay and added 62 runs with Faf du Plessis. However‚ CSK's breakthrough came from Moeen Ali who removed Faf in the eighth over. CSK then fought back with a 173/8 total in 20 overs. In the end‚ they lost seven of their last eight games. After the Powerplay‚ Chennai lost three quick wickets. But with the help of a wicket that was slightly tackier than expected‚ Faf took an aerial route. And the wicket‚ which was a bit 'tacky'‚ helped him to bowl at a round angle. With a winning momentum‚ the Australians will look to build on their earlier success in the tournament.

Robin Uthappa reaches 5000 runs in IPL

The next major milestone that is likely to be achieved in the IPL is the 5000-run milestone‚ which is set to be reached by Robin Uthappa. He is the fastest batsman to reach this milestone in IPL history‚ and is on track to achieve it before the end of the 2022 season. Uthappa has a base price of two crores‚ which is more than AB de Villiers's current IPL price of 3.5 crores. He is on course to make this milestone on his 200th match in the IPL‚ and would be the sixth player to reach that milestone. Currently‚ he is 81 short of the 5000-run milestone‚ and if he reaches that mark‚ he would be the sixth player to achieve the feat. He first joined the IPL in 2008‚ playing for the Mumbai Indians and later represented the Pune Warriors India‚ Kolkata Knight Riders‚ and the Rajasthan Royals. He was signed by Chennai Super Kings ahead of the 2021 season‚ and could make history tonight. In IPL 2022‚ the Indian Premier League will feature 10 teams‚ and the players on each team have done well. There are six players who have made over 5000 words in IPL. These players will be in the spotlight once again during the tournament. This is a great opportunity for these young players to make history. While Virat Kohli has achieved the all-time run-scoring record in IPL‚ Uthappa and Dines Karthik have a chance to make this feat in the coming years. Chennai Super Kings and Mumbai Indians have had a disappointing season this year‚ with both teams losing eleven matches and winning just one game. The CSK batter Robin Uthappa needs just nine runs to hit his 5000-run mark and RCB captain Faf du Plessis needs eight fours to hit 400 fours in IPL 2022. If Uthappa can hit those two milestones in the next two seasons‚ he will be one of the most prolific players in the history of the tournament. After hitting a match-winning knock against CSK in the 2015 final‚ the Indians won the toss and put KKR into bat. However‚ CSK lost both Gautam Gambhir and Manish Pandey in their first four overs‚ leaving KKR with a score of 165 for the loss of seven wickets. The innings ended with CSK reaching 216 for the loss of four wickets in 20 overs‚ and Uthappa was able to post his highest IPL score of 88. He hit nine boundaries and a six in the innings to seal the victory.

CSK's playoff hopes are all but over

RCB and Chennai Super Kings faced off in the 49th match of IPL 2022. The home team won the toss and elected to bat‚ but Chennai Super Kings were unable to bat at par and were bowled out for 161/8. The first innings was a tight affair with RCB requiring only 175 to win. Chennai managed to score a mere 167 runs‚ but the Royal Challengers Bangalore responded to defeat Chennai Super Kings with a strong performance. The hosts are a better side at the mid-innings break‚ but RCB are still looking to bounce back from losing the top three. With three games to go‚ RCB can reach a maximum of 14 points‚ but that won't be enough to secure a final-four spot. MS Dhoni was dejected after the loss and was not able to help the batting side. RCB had a decent score at the end of the innings but batting first‚ Chennai Super Kings defended the target easily. However‚ Bangalore's bowlers failed to bowl well and were unable to get a good start with the ball. The team relied on Shahbaz Ahmed‚ Glenn Maxwell‚ Josh Hazlewood‚ and Harshal Patel to get back in the game. With the win‚ Bangalore now sit at fourth position in the points table and are well-placed to qualify for the Playoffs. During the Powerplay‚ Kohli and du Plessis batting with authority‚ pummelling the CSK bowlers. They added 57 runs in the first six overs‚ which was the highest Powerplay score in the tournament. MS Dhoni then introduced spin to slow down the RCB innings‚ but the two remained on strike behind the stumps. The RCB openers were unable to score a century‚ which was their lowest score. Their openers‚ Virat Kohli and Faf du Plessis‚ put on 62 runs before CSK bowled them out. However‚ Moeen Ali and Glenn Maxwell gave the CSK openers a scare and removed Faf for only two runs in the ninth over. However‚ Rajat Patidar and Dinesh Karthik kept the innings in check and ensured the RCB won with 13 runs.

RCB's batting line-up dominates

Virat Kohli and Faf du Plessis opened the batting for RCB‚ but the team has suffered from a shaky top order. While Australian batsman Glenn Maxwell has struggled to get going‚ this has only added pressure on keeper batsman Shahbaz Ahmed. Rajat Patidar is also under pressure‚ and has scored just 78 runs in nine games. RCB's batting line up has been in shaky form throughout the tournament‚ but the new captain Ravindra Jadeja is looking for a strong transition into the role of skipper. It's unlikely that he'll be able to do this unless he impresses the viewers with his temperament and cricketing knowledge. The Chennai Super Kings have been runner-up in three previous seasons and would love to start the season on a high. RCB have been runners-up in the previous two IPLs‚ but with the addition of Chris Morris‚ they'll be challenging for the playoffs in IPL 2022. With 57 crores in the bank‚ RCB will have no trouble signing a new captain. They retained Virat Kohli (INR 15 crore)‚ Glenn Maxwell (INR 11 crore) and Mohammed Siraj (INR 7 crore)‚ but they also lost their vice-captain Shahid Afridi to the Mumbai Indians. RCB's batting line up is one of the key factors in deciding whether they'll make the playoffs this year. Virat Kohli's form has been inconsistent during the past two seasons‚ but the team is confident that he'll be able to bounce back and dominate the competition. The team is also bolstered by the addition of Harshal Patel and Wanindu Hasaranga. The team's batting order is complemented by Jason Behrendorff and Sherfana Rutherford. The Royal Challengers Bangalore are looking to bounce back and win the IPL with a win against Gujarat Titans. The Titans are on a four-game winning streak and have won five of their last eight matches. In contrast‚ the Royal Challengers Bangalore are on five wins and four defeats in nine matches. With this record‚ RCB can't afford a loss to GT.
