RCB dropped too many catches. Bowling was good until the last over which went for 37 runs allowing CSK to post a good total.
RCB batting collapse in pressure. Today the star players did not bat well. RCB need to find a balance in their middle order.
CSK batted and bowled well. But the star was Ravindra Jadeja who batted brilliantly at the end, bowled well and also played part in a run-out.
Overall as a team, CSK is improving after every game
