Their latest victory came against the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in a nail-biting match that ended with a 27-run lead, clinching the final playoff position right from under their rivals' noses.

RCB set a robust foundation with a powerful batting performance, posting a daunting total of 218/5. CSK, in response, needed over 200 runs to secure their playoff berth. Early on, Rachin Ravindra and Ajinkya Rahane gave CSK a glimmer of hope with their stabilizing partnership. However, RCB's bowlers methodically dismantled the opposing lineup. In a pivotal moment, Ravindra Jadeja and MS Dhoni formed a swift 61-run partnership off just 27 balls, intensifying the chase and putting the pressure back on Bangalore.
