Led by young Ruturaj Gaikwad CSK chased down a target of 146 in 18.4 overs to take their tally to eight points.

Gaikwad (65 not out off 51 balls) showed his potential with a maiden fifty. Gaikwad and veteran Ambati Rayudu (39 off 27 balls) added 67 runs in 8.2 overs for the second wicket to finish off a chase in style although it might have been too little too late.
 Man of the match Gaikwad came in for praise by MS Dhoni who said he liked that the youngster backed himself.

"Ruturaj batted well. He backed himself to play the shots he is known for. You have to enjoy the game no matter where you are on the table. If you are not enjoying the cricket, it can become cruel and painful. So I am glad with how the youngsters have responded," CSK skipper said.

Man of the Match Gaikwad said,"It feels good. More importantly winning the game for the team. And being not out in the end. It was tough for me going into quarantine for more days than the rest of the team because of Covid. I got support from everybody.

Kohli's RCB remain on 14, while CSK move to 8 points.
 "What you saw in the second innings wasn't a true reflection of how difficult the pitch was. We didn't hit the areas. Too many boundary balls," says Virat Kohli after the loss.
