Monday’s Indian Premier League game saw Chennai Super Kings upset Royal Challengers Bangalore by eight runs. Prior to the abrupt departures of captain Faf du Plessis (62 off 33) and Glenn Maxwell (76 off 36 balls), who were both part of the RCB’s intimidating 227-run mark, the team appeared to be on track. Hopes for an RCB triumph were increased by the pair’s 126 run third-wicket partnership. After being asked to bat first, CSK earlier scored 226 for six. In a 74-run stand for the second wicket with Ajinkya Rahane (37 off 20 balls), opener Devon Conway scored 83 runs off 45 deliveries.
