Match Preview

CSK and RCB will be taking on each other for the second time in this IPL in Dubai on Sunday.  A tough season for CSK and taking on the clinical RCB with the last defeat they faced will push CSK on backfoot on the match day. RCB are in the second position after completely thrashing the KKR in their last match. They have won 7 out of 10 matches and will try to claim the top spot and also secure their chances in the top four. Each player chipped in for RCB this year at the right moment. Mohammed Siraj was the match of the match for his best figures of 3 wickets for just 8 runs in 4 overs. 

CSK is facing their worst IPL ever as they are lingering at the bottom of the table with 8 losses in 11 matches. The door is closed for CSK and all they need to do is to play for their pride. In the history of IPL, CSK had never been beaten by 10 wickets but it happened against MI in the last match.

Teams Preview

Royal Challengers Bangalore

After the performance against the KKR, RCB bowlers put the final nail on the coffin of the criticisms they had received for years. Their bowling restricted KKR for this year's lowest total of 85 runs in 20 overs and batsmen gave the final touch.

There was nothing much for the batsmen to do against KKR. Paddikal got a good start again and scored 25(17) taking his run tally to a total of 321 runs in 10 matches. Finch has struggled in the last few matches and could score only 16 runs off 21 balls. Gurkeerat Mann got a chance to bat up the order and scored 21 runs. Virat Kohli stayed not out on 18 runs and drove the team home as usual.

Mohammed Siraj pulled off his career-best figures in this IPL after murdering the KKR top order. He scalped 3 big wickets and conceded only 8 runs in 4 overs. The spin duo again downsized the opponents by giving nothing away. Chahal got 2 wickets for 15 runs whereas Sundar got one wicket for 14 runs in 4 overs. Chris Morris was brilliant again conceding only 16 runs in 4 overs.

Virat Kohli is the leading run-scorer with 365 runs in 10 matches. In bowling, Yuzvendra Chahal is the leading wicket-taker with 15 wickets in 10 matches.

Key players: Virat Kohli, Chris Morris, AB Devilliers

Royal Challengers Bangalore Actual Playing XI:

Chennai Super Kings

Nothing is working for CSK this year, the batsmen couldn't post anything big, probably due to a weak middle-order batting and unsettled openers his year. The bowlers have done well not to give runs away but the combination is really out of place for the yellow brigade. Sam Curran scored his first IPL fifty of this season which somehow dragged the total to 114 in 20 overs. Faf du Plessis didn't score much in the last two matches and departed for just 2 runs off 3 balls against MI. Shane Watson was rested in this game and the chance given to Jagdeesan and Gaikwad was wasted as both of them got out for a duck. Rayadu departed after knocking 3 balls. Jadeja and Dhoni tried to repair the damage but could only score 23 runs together. Half of the team was back in the pavilion in the fifth over itself.

No bowler was able to pick a wicket in the whole innings against MI. A humiliating defeat for CSK after a complete failure of batting and bowling. Deepak Chahar had scalped 2 wickets in 4 overs against RR but was wicketless against MI. Hazlewood bowled 2 overs for 17 runs whereas Sam Curran didn't bowl a single over. Imran Tahir was back into the team but couldn't help much with his bowling.

Faf Du Plessis is the leading scorer with a staggering 377 runs in 11 matches and Deepak Chahar has picked 10 wickets in 11 matches.

Key players: Faf Du Plessis, Ravindra Jadeja, Sam Curran

Venue Details

The average score at this ground is around 170 and teams have chased and defended well at this venue. RCB have won 4 out of 6 matches played at this venue. CSK had lost against RCB at the same venue.

Toss Prediction

The pitch offers some swing early in the innings if proper lengths are bowled. The pitch gets slower as the game progresses. Teams have preferred to bat first at this venue. So, bat first after winning the toss.

Winning Prediction

The clinical RCB look intimidating with their dominating run this year. They have sorted and proven combinations to win any game against any team. CSK will find it difficult with their ordinary bowling to pass through the defence of RCB. RCB got a good record in Dubai which makes them the favourites.

We predict RCB to register a  good win against CSK.
