In the 42nd match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2014, Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) captain Virat Kohli decided to go with Yuzvendra Chahal’s leg spin and the diminutive spinner bowled a tidy over and Chennai Super Kings (CSK) batsmen were suddenly stifled and the boundaries were hard to come by. Suresh Raina finally broke the shackles by pulling Varun Aaron on the leg side for a boundary and then trickling the ball down to the third man region for another boundaries.Catch Live Blog of the Chennai Super Kings vs Royal Challengers Bangalore 2014 here
The partnership was moving along at a languid pace, especially given the fact David Hussey was taking his time at the crease. Raina was on the attack and smacked a boundary on the leg side.Things started to go from bad to worse for Chennai when the in-form Dwayne Smith went for a pull and the an unfortunate top-edge meant that the ball landed safely in Ab de Villiers hands at point. Chennai captain MS Dhoni won the toss and elected to bat at Ranchi. David Hussey has been brought into the Chennai line-up in place of Faf du Plessis. Varun Aaron comes in for Vijay Zol for Bangalore.
