IPL 2023: RCB's fight fails to overwhelm Dhoni's CSK in high-scoring contest

Bengaluru/IBNS: Despite a tough fight by Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), Mahendra Singh Dhoni-led Chennai Super Kings (CSK) clinched an eight-run win in the 24th match of Indian Premier League (IPL) here on Monday.

Chasing a mammoth target of 227, RCB lost early wickets but they counter-attacked with aggressive knocks by Faf du Plessis (62 off 33 balls) and Glenn Maxwell (76 off 36 balls).

The two batters stitched a 126-run partnership for the third wicket. But their dismissals in quick succession once again landed RCB on a spot of bother.

Dhoni's clinical captaincy and regular fall of RCB's wickets dented Faf-led team's hope for a win at home as the hosts ended at 218/8 in 20 overs despite late firing by wicketkeeper-batter Dinesh Karthik's 14-ball 28.

Earlier, Devon Conway's 83 off 45 balls and Shivam Dube's 52 off 27 balls helped CSK to post 226/6 in 20 overs.

With sixes fours and as many as sixes, Conway steered the yellow brigade to a mammoth total which, however, at one point seemed vulnerable in front of RCB batting.
