Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) faced an in-form Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in match 35 of Indian Premier League (IPL) 2018. A match that was billed as a clash of the titans sadly ended up a cakewalk of sorts for Chennai. Chasing a low target of 128, MS Dhoni and Ambati Rayudu led the chase. Earlier, Ravindra Jadeja and Harbhajan Singh had starred with ball, forcing RCB to a collapse. With this win, CSK go a step closer to playoffs, while RCB have made it tougher for them to qualify. Here’s how the individuals fared:
