MS Dhoni dries daughter Ziva's hair after destroying Virat Kohli's RCB

Virat Kohli IPL 2018

Royal Challengers Bangalore spinner Yuzvendra Chahal and captain Virat Kohli

Requiring a run rate of over 13 when he walked in, Dhoni made the target look like child's play as his 70 off 34 saw him win the match with a very big six. The key for us was the two left-handers but we lost them early.

Describing the chase as "unbelievable", Rayudu said that the side wanted to play out Yuzvendra Chahal, who scalped two wickets, in an impressive spell.

Kohli's Bangalore are in a slump with just two wins and the IPL season now half gone.

The South African duo led by Quinton de Kock (53) and AB de Villiers (68) then led a massive assault, smashing a flurry of boundaries as they shared a quickfire 103-run partnership. A few days ago, during the match with Kings XI Punjab, while Dhoni was hammering fours and sixes his daughter was in the stand enjoying the game and at one point in time she was heard saying, "Papa ko bulao na, papa ko hug karna hai".

The hype of the Chennai Super Kings and Royal Challengers Bangalore clash lived up to expectations. The India captain had further misery heaped upon him as he was fined RS 12 Lakh for his side's slow over-rate.

"The way we bowled was just not acceptable, giving that many runs in the end was criminal", said Kohli.

At this place on the batting table is Sunrisers Hyderabad captain Williamson, who until the CSK v RCB match was the owner of the Orange Cap after scoring 259 runs in six innings. He finished it in style too after stepping to the offside and smashing Corey Anderson over long-on to bring up the winning runs and complete a brilliant win for the Super Kings.

Ambati Rayudu starred for CSK, hitting three fours and eight sixes in his innings of 82 before being run out by Umesh Yadav.

Dhoni, who was calm as ever, said after the game, "I thought it was a hard chase when I saw AB batting to see them over 200, I thought it was 15-20 beyond par".

From 138 for one at the start of 14th over, RCB slumped to 142 for four, following which Mandeep Singh (32 of 17 balls) and Washington Sundar (13 off 4) propped up the home team.
