Chennia Super Kings Team News ahead of the match with Royal Challengers Bangalore

Chennai Team News

Chennai Super Kings are in second place in the table with three wins from four games.

Most recently, they defeated Kolkata Knight Riders by 18 runs in a game that saw them outperform their rivals with the bat and ball.

Faf du Plessis continues to be the leading run-scorer for Chennai, having hit a brilliant 95 against KKR. Ruturaj Gaikwad also rose to the occasion with a good half-century.

MS Dhoni would be pleased to see his batting order coming together quite nicely now, with Raina, Rayudu, and Bravo also in a fine form.

Bowling-wise, there is not a lot that they need to worry about. Deepak Chahar continues to be the driving force and now with the presence of Lungi Ngidi, who picked up three wickets against Kolkata, their bowling is only going to get better.

For the upcoming game, they will need the best of bowling and batting. It is quite likely that we may not see any changes from the previous game, except for a possible switch between Bravo and Curran.

Likely XI: Gaikwad, du Plessis, Ali, Raina, Rayudu, Jadeja, Dhoni, Ngidi, Bravo, Thakur, Chahar

Royal Challengers Bangalore Team News for the IPL game with Chennai Super Kings

Bangalore Team News

Royal Challengers Bangalore are enjoying a dream start to their Indian Premier League campaign. They are unbeaten in the four games so far and they are getting progressively better with every game.

In the match against Rajasthan Royals, Mohammad Siraj and Harshal Patel picked up six wickets between them but it was Devdutt Padikkal’s batting that stole the show.

Chasing a target of 178 runs, he scored his maiden IPL century, blasting 101 off 52 while Virat Kohli crossed the 6,000 run milestone in the IPL. Thanks to their performance, Bangalore beat RR by a good 10 wickets with 21 balls to spare.

This couldn’t have come at a better time for AB de Villiers and Glen Maxwell, both of whom have had to pick up the slack for a bit. As things stand, RCB’s entire opening order is pretty much in a fine form.

They are firing on all cylinders right now and in all likelihood, we may see the same playing XI.

Likely XI: Padikkal, Kohli, Maxwell, De Villiers, Jamieson, Sundar, Ahmed, Richardson, Patel, Siraj, Chahal

Venue & conditions

The match will be played in Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium where the first innings score in the last four matches has been above 170 runs.

CSK have been particularly good on this ground, having posted big totals in their last couple of games. Meanwhile, RCB just played their first match in Mumbai against Rajasthan and it couldn’t have gone any better for them.

For a match of this caliber, any score above 180-190 would be a good one but 200+ is what the teams will be looking at.

It will be a dry afternoon.

CSK vs RCB Head-to-Head

Chennai have enjoyed the better of this fixture through the years as they hold a big lead over Bangalore. This time around, there are all indications that Bangalore may add a much-needed win to their column.

Last season, both the teams shared a win each from the two fixtures.

Chennai vs Bangalore Winner Prediction

Recommended Bet: Back Bangalore to win @1.73 with Casumo

There is no doubt that the two teams are formidable but we are going with Bangalore because of their superior momentum and possibly, a stronger squad.

Chennai have had their problems in the past and to some extent, they have relied on Faf du Plessis’s antics with the bat to get them through. That said, they have their bowling going on for them which is a good sign.

Plus, there is also the matter of Dhoni’s form, who hasn’t looked at his best. India’s former captain will now face India’s current one, who is unarguably having one of the best times of his professional career.

Bangalore are functioning pretty well in all departments. It is just a matter of retaining that momentum and confidence.

Kohli and Padikkal have found their form in time, easing the pressure off others. They are also fairly good at bowling, thanks to Siraj and Patel.

CSK will try to take advantage of their powerful bowling but RCB’s batsmen are looking too good at the moment. It will be an entertaining game.

CSK Total Fours 20 overs: Over 13.5

Recommended Bet: Back CSK to hit over 13.5 fours in 20 overs: 1.61 with Betway

Chennai Super Kings have been absolutely brilliant when it comes to finding boundaries. Their last couple of games have seen them hit over 30 fours.

Considering that Mumbai is a pitch that favours the batsmen, it shouldn’t be that difficult for them to find the fours. They do have the necessary firepower in their team, after all.

Today’s CSK vs RCB Hot Bet

Recommended Bet: Patel to be RCB Top Bowler @ 3.50 with 10CRIC

Harshal Patel has picked up 12 wickets in 4 matches and thus is the leading wicket-taker for RCB this season, along with the current bearer of Purple Cap.

He generally bowls his entire spell and has been consistently picking up wickets this tournament. He is available at a decent price and certainly makes for an appealing bet.
