Virat Kohli: 'The way we bowled is just not acceptable'

Suresh Raina and MS Dhoni with their daughters

Dhoni proved yet again as to why he is considered the best finisher in the world by successfully chasing down the gigantic target. However, he is just three runs ahead of AB de Villiers, who on Wednesday smoked 68 off 30 balls against CSK to lead the table until Rayudu's barn-storming half-century propelled his franchise to a stunning five-wicket win when chasing Royal Challengers Bangalore's 205/8.

Along with Rayudu, the CSK skipper notched up a superb 101-run stand to keep CSK in the run chase.

Asked how he planned the chase, Dhoni said: "What's important in a chase is to know which bowler has how many overs left and who the captain will bowl when and you play accordingly". But this knock gave Rayudu the Orange Cap as he jumped to the top of the leading run-scorers in the tournament.

With the two biggest names in Indian cricket in Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni squaring off against each other, fireworks were to be expected. In the video, Dhoni is seen blow-drying daughter Ziva's hair, as he gets her ready to roll. He made 82 runs in 53 balls to help Chennai stay in the match.

Jordan Henderson Sends Message To Fan Injured By Roma Fans
Following Liverpool's incredible 5-2 victory over Roma , fans turned their attentions to the injured supporter. But he's shown that you can work at your game and go beyond what anyone would imagine.

Anderson ended with the very bad figures of 0-58 off 3.4 overs as his side were blown away after a fine batting effort, which saw de Kock (53 off 37) and AB de Villiers (68 off 30) steer them over the 200-mark.

The Record: RCB fans would have been disappointed with the result, but they couldn't fault the entertainment after being treated to a record-breaking 33 sixes between the two sides. But quality batting from both sides getting 200-plus. "We also lost some key batsmen early, but it's a small ground, the ball travels a lot here, there was some dew, though not a lot", Dhoni said. They have just 2 wins from 6 matches.

Their batsmen have scored runs while their bowlers have leaked them in plenty, which is evident by the fact that Yuzvendra Chahal has the best economy of 8.05 runs per over among the RCB bowlers.

From 138 for one at the start of 14th over, RCB slumped to 142 for four, following which Mandeep Singh (32 of 17 balls) and Washington Sundar (13 off 4) propped up the home team.
