IPL: Bangalore Challengers triumph over stifled Chennai Superkings

2010-03-24 00:00

THE Bangalore Royal Challengers kept up their fine form with a 36-run triumph over the dangerous Chennai Superkings yesterday.

The Challengers had Robin ­Uthappa to thank, as his late innings blitzkrieg saw 52 runs chalked up off the last three overs to propel the Challengers to an innings of 171 for five.

The Superkings had no answer for the guile of Anil Kumble as the leg-spinner mixed up his pace and flummoxed the Chennai outfit to wrest control of the match.

The win sees the Challengers jump to the top of the standings.

Scores in brief: Royal Challengers Bangalore 171 for 5 (Uthappa 68*, Murali 3-25);Chennai Super Kings 135 for 7 (R Vinay Kumar 4-40) by 36 runs. — SR.
