    As it happened: Chennai vs Bangalore, IPL 7, Match 53

    Their playoff hopes over after defeat at the hands of Kolkata Knight Riders, a shattered Royal Challengers Bangalore will play for pride against a slightly shaky Chennai Super Kings in their last league encounter of IPL 7.

    The 30-run defeat against KKR, who booked the IPL playoff berth, dashed RCB's hopes. Skipper Virat Kohli, who could do no wrong in the last IPL, is struggling for runs and his captaincy has also raised a few eyebrows.

    The formidable CSK have already qualified for the playoffs, but inconsistency has hit the two-time champions who have lost their last three matches. They would certainly like to bounce back hope to finish in the top-two at the end of league stage on Sunday.
