Faf was able to score eight runs this time, while Watson had to settle for 14 runs this time.
After Watson’s dismissal, N.S. Jagadishan came. Jagadishan also made a cautious start. It is true that he hit some big shots, but he could not make a big play. Jagdishan scored 33 off 28 balls with four fours. Dhoni also had to settle for 10 runs this time, while Sam Karan was dismissed without hitting a single. Ambati Rayudu, who was at a standstill, was dismissed at a crucial moment. Rayudu scored 42 off 40 balls.

RCB won the toss and elected to bat first. But RCB did not get off to a good start this time. Because their opener Aaron Finch also failed in this match. Chennai’s Deepak Chahar dismissed Finch while he was on two runs.
After Finch’s dismissal, Devdutt Padikkal and skipper Virat Kohli got on well. The duo also formed a half-century partnership for the second wicket.
