Royal Challengers Bangalore and Chennai SuperKings will face each other at Chinnaswamy stadium at Bangalore. This may seem to be a dead game but both teams have a lot to play for. On one side, RCB will look to end up on a high at home venues, after having not played to their potential at home. On the other hand , CSK will look to win this game and strengthen their claim for the top 2 team spot.
CSK are coming into this having lost 3 back to back games , something which one doesn’t associate with CSK. They would like to go into the next round on a high. They have been out of the track after they had managed to qualify for the next stage . On the other hand , RCB has improved , especially with their batting unit.
Both teams seems to have a struggle in the bowling department, especially Chennai SuperKings. Bangalore has been playing most of the games on flat pitches and it’s bowlers going for runs in understandable. Muralitharan , coming into the team has surely added a lot to their bowling.
Chennai might bring Hilfenhaus or Samuel Badree in place of Hastings , otherwise they too are likely to go with tge same team.
Head to Head:
Both these teams have met on 15 occasions before and Chennai leads the battle with 8 wins , with 7 going in the favour of RCB.
