CSK beats Bangalore in IPL

IPL 2022, CSK vs RCB: Dube-Robin show helps Chennai Super Kings beat Royal Challengers Bangalore, snap losing streak

 With backs against the divider, Chennai Super Kings required legends. They found two on Tuesday against RCB, however they weren't the typical suspects.

Shivam Dube and Robin Uthappa are not the high end geniuses of this CSK group, however they showed that they can turn it on when required. In 12.1 overs, they set up 165 runs, which assisted CSK with bursting away to 216/4 and score up their first win of the time after four straight misfortunes.

With 36/2 in the seventh over, the stage appeared to be set for another CSK battle. The RCB bowlers had smothered the top-request and the two stars - Ruturaj Gaikwad and Moeen Ali - were back in the cabin. That is when Uthappa (88 off 50 balls) and Dube (95 off 46 balls) dominated.

Dube has played a ton of his cricket at the DY Patil Stadium and he knows what's in store from the pitch. Uthappa, then again, is a characteristic clock of the ball, and when it is his day, it's challenging to keep the Karnataka man calm.

Pursuing 217, RCB were moved back by CSK's Lankan 'secret' spinner Mahesh Theeksana (4-33). After the wickets of openers Faf du Plessis and Anuj Rawat in the Powerplay, he got debutant Suyash Prabhudessai and left-hander Shahbaz Ahmed out following their savvy, little appearances.

Both couldn't peruse what direction the ball was turning and followed through on the cost. Theeksana's bowling has similitudes with Ajantha Mendis, who had tortured India for some time in 2008, and till the time groups read him from the hand, the Lankan kid can unleash destruction in the IPL.

Dinesh Karthik's 14-ball 34 towards the finish of RCB innings infused some fervor into the game yet CSK were not to be denied a merited triumph, by 23 runs.

Be that as it may, this CSK fightback was about Dube and Uthappa. The couple had concluded that they wouldn't permit RCB's two spinners, Shahbaz Ahmed and Glen Maxwell, settle. Both realize that one side of the ground is more limited and they chose to send off into their shots with positively no dread.

They continued to associate and the ball began to vanish into the stands. Medium-pacer Akash Deep missing the mark on nuance and sagacity to stop the progression of runs while wrist-spinner Wanindu Hasaranga couldn't exactly figure where to bowl to this pair.

One player who might have had an effect at this stage for RCB was medium-pacer Harshal Patel. He is the main bowler in this line-up who can land the yorker and bowl the more slow ball really, yet he wasn't accessible in light of the fact that he had left the air pocket following his sister's demise last Saturday.

Indeed, even Mohammed Siraj, a decent red-ball bowler, continued to bowl length balls and all Dube and Uthappa did was hitting through the line. He once had Uthappa trapped in the profound, however that also was a no ball.

While Uthappa was at long last excused in the nineteenth over, Dube was on the pursuit for a century. He hit two sixes in the last over bowled by Josh Hazlewood, yet he was unable to associate the last ball. However, the harm had previously been finished.
