Unbelievable last ball! Dhoni misses the ball so runs to the wicket keeper, Patel eyes up the stumps and lasers it at them, Thakur is run out by one or two inches, RCB win by one run. Crazy last over, CSK shouldn't have been let in, but they nearly edged it. Lots of credit to Dhoni who played another great innings and kept CSK in with a fighting chance.
19.6 - U Yadav to M Dhoni
Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, missed to wicketkeeper, direct hit by Patel.
Full toss from Yadav and Dhoni makes no mistake as he clubs it over midwicket for six! Two off one needed for CSK.
19.5 - U Yadav to M Dhoni
Full toss, to leg on the front foot Slog, well timed in the air under control over deep mid wicket for 6 runs.
19.4 - U Yadav to M Dhoni
Yorker, to leg on the front foot driving, inside edge to deep mid wicket for 2 runs, fielded by Negi.
Another six! this time on the off-side as Dhoni drives the ball. AB nearly gets there, but he is just not tall enough.
19.3 - U Yadav to M Dhoni
Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control over deep extra cover for 6 runs.
The short ball gets absolutely creamed over midwicket. It's out of the ground! Can he do it?.
19.2 - U Yadav to M Dhoni
Back of a length, outside off stump on the front foot pulling, well timed in the air under control over deep mid wicket for 6 runs.
19.1 - U Yadav to M Dhoni
Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed past deep backward square leg for 4 runs.
