Who would have imagined that Chennai Super Kings which have a strong batting line up would struggle to get 100 runs on the board. Top order which had Micheal Hussey, Murali Vijay, Raina and Badrinath got destroyed by the RCB bowlers. CSK lost 4 wickets and could only manage to score 23 runs in the powerplay.

Captain M.S.Dhoni had to come in rescue. He played one of his best innings and scored his highest score of IPL. Dhoni who is known for performing better under pressure proved it once again by this innings. Dhoni hit 6 sixes in this innings and scored with a strike rate of 175.
