Ruturaj Gayakwad and Faf du Plessis provided a brilliant start to Chennai as they put on 74 runs for the first wicket partnership. Ruturaj Gayakwad was dismissed after making a very good looking 33 in 25 deliveries. Faf du Plessis carried on and registered a half century in 40 balls before being dismissed by Harshal Patel. Patel took 2 wickets in the 13th over to peg Chennai Super Kings back.
However, a calm headed Jadeja batted patiently until the 19th over and simply unleashed his hard hitting potential in the last over of the innings. He smashed Harshal Patel for 37 runs, the highest runs in an over this IPL 2021. The last over heroics by Jadeja propelled the total to 191 for 4 in 20 overs.

Chasing 191, Devdutt Padikkal gave RCB a great start by smashing 34 off just 15 balls. Once he fell, the run dipped quite a lot and that resulted in more frequent dismissals. By the 11th over, RCB were already 6 down with their big man AB de Villers back into the pavilion. Ravindra Jadeja bowled brilliantly in his spell of 4 overs, picking up 3 wickets and gave away only 13 runs.
In the death overs, Kyle Jamieson showed some sort of fight but RCB were always going to fall short of the total and they did. In the end, RCB finished with 122 for 9 in 20 overs, losing the match by a huge margin of 69 runs.
