The match, which recorded 33 sixes, was won by the Tamil Nadu based side.

MS Dhoni, who was adjudged the man of the match, made a mockery of a competitive target of 206 runs, reaching it with two balls to spare.

"Royal Challengers Bangalore captain Virat Kohli has been fined after his team maintained a slow over-rate during their VIVO Indian Premier League (IPL) 2018 match against Chennai Super Kings in Bengaluru on 25th April.

As it was his team’s first offence of the season under the IPL’s Code of Conduct relating to minimum over-rate offences, Mr. Kohli was fined Rs 12 lakh."
