New Delhi: It was another match and another win for Chennai Super Kings and it’s contrasting for Royal Challengers Bangalore as they are yet to win a game in the UAE leg of the Indian Premier League. RCB have now lost 7 matches on the trot in the United Arab Emirates. CSK chased down the total with 11 balls to spare as all batsmen made some valuable contribution in the 157-chase.

They overtook Delhi Capitals, who also have 14 points, but the yellow brigade has better net run-rate of 1.185, compared to 0.613 of the Delhi team.Also Read - Ravi Shastri Eyes IPL or Commentary Stint After Tenure as Team India Head Coach: Report
