While Dhoni ended on the winning side both had a dull show as far as individual performances are concerned. Kohli was dismissed for 4(6) in the first over of the 227-run chase, while Dhoni faced just one delivery before his team ran out of overs.

Dhoni also missed a caught-behind of opposition skipper Faf du Plessis on 0, who then went to score 62 off 33 balls. He also stitched a dangerous 126-run stand for the third-wicket with Glenn Maxwell, giving RCB the upper hand but the middle-order failed to capitalise.

RCB put a strong show but could only manage 218/8 in response to CSK's 226/6 in 20 overs.

The win also saw CSK climb to the third spot on the points table and now have six points from five encounters. RCB, on the other hand, slipped to seventh and have two less than CSK from the same number of matches.

RCB will now travel to Punjab for their upcoming match against Shikhar Dhawan and Co., which is scheduled for Thursday. CSK, on the other hand, host Sunrisers Hyderabad at Chepauk on Friday.
