The latest one that once upon a time in an ipl final the Albie Morkel, that looks back at the Chennai super kings. For their little win in Ipl 2011. And there the second on the trot in that was their third appearance in that tournament.

That was one of the better ipl for the royal challengers Bangalore, just they finished the league stage of the first edition of the ipl-10  and their team event. And that time they were at the top of the table. If I talk about the qualifier then the first qualifier of the RCB managed to the post of the competitive and the total js 175 above. At that time Virat was only 22 years old. And he had played 70 not out off 44 balls.

And there powering that effort. And that match CSK lost their openers early in their chase and they were reduced to 131 for 4 in the 17th over, that time when MS Dhoni was dismissed. Then it calmed down to rest 33 in the last two overs, that morale was batting on 28 off 10 and Suresh Raina 73 off 50 balls and that helped their team was over the line. And they two deliveries to spare and the booking on the spot in the final at where they had not lost a single game in that season.

That time RCB played one of the playoffs. And they came from behind. CSK should not have won that game but they won that. Their confidence in Bangalore was pretty high. Because in the Banglore team there are three most dangerous batsmen in the world like Gayle, Kohli, and Devilliers. And in that season Ashwin got better in that game against Gayle and Devilliers. They play against Chennai. They have some plan or a nice plan. And that plan had worked in most of the games.

And they had played the final in Chennai where that year the wicket was too slow. That was very dry and a lot of the grass on the field. In a turning track, they played. And mist says that their confidence is too high. Before that year Chennai had not lost a single match on their home ground. And there they know about team traveling. And there they know if they won the toss then they elected to bat first. That was the tough place to chase in the evening. They knew that they were playing on their home ground so that was the advantage for that team.

That’s the mass of the RCB and Chennai game. That match has always been high intensity and that match was always the high scoring match. Also, the RCB never take the final trophy, therefore, they come with the exception to the win of their first trophy. In that series, Gayle was hitting the seamers wherever he wanted in all series. He sort of that slowed down against the spinners.
