The Chennai Super Kings(CSK) and Royal Challengers Bangalore(RCB) met at the DY Patil Stadium in Navi Mumbai. This is the 22nd match of the IPL 2022. While was proving more difficult for CSK to get off to a good start this season, they put up a massive total of 216 runs. This is their highest of the season, and prevented RCB from fighting it.

Former captain MS Dhoni used his tactical savvy to set the fielding when Virat Kohli was out with the bat in the second innings of the match during RCB's chase. Kohli was removed for just one run after the mastermind drew out a blueprint, laid it out on the pitch, and executed it.

The CSK captain attempted to trap Kohli with a strategy. The skipper relocated Shivam Dube from a fine leg to a deep square leg. Kohli next blasted the ball towards the deep square leg, where it was collected by Dube at the exact location. When the former RCB captain was dismissed in the powerplay, the squad suffered a major setback, coming on the heels of the loss of their captain, Faf du Plessis.

In terms of the match, the reigning champions won their first match of the season, earning their first points of the season. The men in yellow bat first after RCB captain Du Plessis won the toss. CSK, who were in desperate need of a win, amassed a tremendous total of 216 runs thanks to Shivam Dube and Robin Uthappa, who both scored undefeated 95* and 88 respectively.

CSK made a number of mistakes during the pursuit, but they were able to hold on to the lead near the conclusion. After eliminating Faf du Plessis, Anuj Rawat, Virat Kohli, and Glenn Maxwell, the men in yellow concentrated only on halting RCB's momentum and severing all potential partnerships. Dinesh Karthik made a threat for a while, but CSK was able to get rid of him.

Ravindra Jadeja's first victory as a captain came in this match, and he'll try to keep the momentum going in the future.
