Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) will take on the defending champions Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in a group stage match to be played at the Maharashtra Cricket Association (MCA) Stadium, Pune on May 4 (Wednesday). While the Red Army is coming in to the match after losing three games in a row, the Yellow Army under the leadership of MS Dhoni won their previous match against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) recently.

Both RCB and CSK have already faced each other in IPL 2022. To note, the defending champions had beaten RCB by a convincing margin. However, it will be a different day and RCB will want to settle the scores and make a strong comeback in the tournament. Both teams look strong on paper and it will be an exciting contest between the two heavyweights of the long-running tournament.

Match Details

Venue: Maharashtra Cricket Association (MCA) Stadium, Pune

Date & Time: May 4, 7:30 PM IST

Pitch Report

The Pitch at the MCA stadium has assisted both batters and bowlers so far. The past matches have witnessed some decent scores, but new ball bowlers have also impacted the match. The skipper winning the toss will want to field first and chase the target later on. As it is an evening game, the dew factor might come into play.

Probable Playing XIs for RCB vs CSK

Royal Challengers Bangalore

Faf du Plessis (c), Virat Kohli, Rajat Patidar, Glenn Maxwell, Dinesh Karthik (wk), Shahbaz Ahmed, Mahipal Lomror, Wanindu Hasaranga, Harshal Patel, Mohammed Siraj, Josh Hazlewood

Probable Top Performers

Probable best batter of the Match

Faf du Plessis:

Former CSK opener and current RCB skipper Faf du Plessis will want to make a statement against his previous franchise by performing well against them with the bat. Du Plessis has played some crucial knocks for his team in a few matches, but he has not been in top form as yet. The right-handed batter will want to play a big knock for his team and get two crucial points on the table.

Probable best bowler of the Match

Mukesh Choudhary

Pacer Mukesh Choudhary was excellent in his previous outing against Sunrisers Hyderabad. The left-arm pacer scalped four crucial wickets for his side. However, he was quite expensive in that match giving away 46 runs in his four overs. Taking the new ball, the 25-year-old will want to clean up the RCB top order in the next match.
