In the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2014, the slower bowlers made a significant impact in the first ten overs, with the Chennai Super Kings bowlers tying down the Bangalore batsmen with Chris Gayle and Virat Kohli unable to make an impact on proceedings and but the batsmen began to make a move on after the ninth over. Gayle lay into the batsmen and that was followed by Kohli with Suresh Raina and Ravindra Jadeja beings smoked for boundaries throughout and suddenly the momentum drastically shifted to Bangalore in the last few overs.

Chris Gayle and Parthiv Patel began the run-chase for Bangalore. Mohit Sharma bowled the first over. Gayle got off the mark on the first delivery. Parthiv then punched one down the ground for a four to get going. He then whipped one off the pads towards deep square-leg for a second four in the over. Ravichandran Ashwin bowled the second over and troubled both the left-handers with some spin. Seeing this, captain MS Dhoni brought leg-spinner Samuel Badree to bowl the third over. Earlier, Chennai posted a total of 138 for four in their 20 overs. Suresh Raina scored an unbeaten 62 off 48 deliveries with six fours and one six. David Hussey scored 25 off 29 deliveries. Varun Aaron took two wickets for 29 runs.
