Splendid performance from Uthappa and all the bowlers saw RCB crushing the Chennai Super Kings by 36 runs. After a slow start, the last 2 overs went for 41 runs and it was all because of one young man- Robin Uthappa. All his hits were clean and safe (surprised??). Given the fact that the wicket had good bounce and swing in it, Uthappa's 68 off 38 balls is worth appreciation.
Chasing 172, CSK were completely dumped by Praveen Kumar, Steyn and Kumble. Hayden was quite calm at the start but he started firing once Kallis was brought into the attack. Rahul Dravid's direct hit saw Hayden returning to pavillion and RCB were on the top. Save Badrinath, noone else was able to threaten team RCB.Vinay Kumar went for 10 runs/over, but succeeded in taking 4 wickets.
Currently, RCB is topping the table with 8 points and NRR of +1.331.
