While chasing 219, Chennai had poor start as they lost skipper Ruturaj Gaikwad (0) and Daryl Mitchell (4) inside the first six overs. However, Ajinkya Rahane (33) and Rachin Ravindra (66) stitched a crucial partnership of 66 runs as visitors reached 115/4 in 13 overs.

However, Ravindra Jadeja played an unbeaten innings of 42 runs while MS Dhoni smashed 25 runs in just 13 balls, but the visitors managed to reach only 191/7 in 20 overs and not only fell short of the win, but also failed to maintain their NRR, which eliminated them from the competition. With this crucial victory, Bengaluru qualified for the playoffs.
