The first doubleheader of the UAE phase of IPL 2021 is set to take place and both matches have a big say in the fortunes of the franchises. It was a clinical performance yesterday from the CSK side against the Virat Kohli-led RCB and the men in yellow have moved to the top of the points table with the win.

Virat Kohli and Devdutt Padikkal started the innings for RCB brilliantly but no significant contributions followed their dismissals and RCB ended up getting just 156 on the board. The strong CSK batting lineup went hard from the start and finished the game in 18.1 with 6 wickets in hand. This will certainly be a big problem for the RCB side to worry about with 4 losses in the last 5 games.

Shikhar Dhawan is still at the top in the race for the Orange cap with 422 runs in 9 games followed by 380 runs for KL Rahul. The purple cap is still held by RCB’s Harshal Patel with 19 wickets to his name.
