Both teams have faced each other in 31 matches till now, with the CSK prevailing in 21 of those matches. RCB has managed to win just 10, while 1 game had no result.
Virat Kohli scored his second consecutive half-century and his third of the season to power RCB to a total of 174 in the first innings. Faf Du Plessis, Mahipal Lomror, and Glenn Maxwell have all got runs under their belt and will be feeling quite confident as they take on an average bowling attack of the Super Kings. However, the lower middle order hasn’t been in the best of forms this season. Dinesh Kartik, who hardly faltered in the last season, has scored 2 ducks in his 4 outings and has struggled to middle the ball. Vijaykumar Vyshak made a dream debut in the match against the Delhi Capitals as he picked up 3 wickets for just 20 runs. He, along with Hasaranga, is likely to play a key role in this match. The pace attack for the RCB looks pretty good too, thanks to Mohammad Siraj, Harshal Patel, and Wayne Parnell.
It has been a rather inconsistent start for the 4-time Champions as they have lost 2 of their 4 matches so far. MS Dhoni will be pretty disappointed with the outcome of their previous match as despite being achingly close to defeating the Rajasthan Royals, they fell short by 3 runs and faced their second defeat of the season. With the top order consisting of Devon Conway, Ruturaj Gaikwad, and Ajinkya Rahane looking in good form, the Super Kings will be hoping to get a good start from them here. However, Shivam Dube and Ambati Rayudu haven’t been in the best of forms with the bat so far and will be looking to get some runs under their belts here. With the seamers not doing well, there will be added pressure on Ravindra Jadeja and Moeen Ali to perform in the middle overs.
PITCH AND CONDITIONS
The Chinnaswamy Stadium offers an excellent pitch to bat on and we are likely to see another high-scoring contest. While no total can be considered a safe total here, the teams batting first will be looking to score over 200 runs.
RCB VS CSK TOSS PREDICTION
The team winning the toss will be looking to chase here.
