Match Preview

This match is very important for both of the teams and it is the home ground of RCB, so RCB will have this advantage. Afterall, Chinnaswamy Stadium is famous because of scoring too many runs.  But the last match played at Chinnaswamy Stadium was not completely favoring the batsman. It was a slow wicket and that’s why RCB defended the target of 175 runs. It will be interesting to watch the clash of both of these teams. 

The interesting thing was that the booking of the tickets was closed very soon after it opened to the public. CSK lost their last match against RR by just 3 runs and they would like to comeback in this match. 

Pitch Report

The pitch of Chinnaswamy has been favoring batsmen since the last few years and no score is safe at this venue. The team winning the toss would like to bowl first because chasing is somewhere easy on this wicket. 

Best Performers Prediction

Ruturaj Gaikwad is in a prime form and on a Bengaluru wicket, CSK will expect high score innings from him. On the other hand, Kohli, Faf, and Maxwell can also score some big runs for their team and it would be amazing to watch some high scoring knocks on this wicket. 

If we talk about bowlers then Siraj is in prime form who is doing counter attack in power plays. That’s the best thing for RCB that they are keeping power plays under their control. On the other hand, Jadeja is doing exceptional bowling from CSK’s side and MSD will expect the same performance again.
