Preview:

The Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) have been brilliant this season and it has been an excellent turnaround for them. They won 7 out of 10 games already and with 4 more games to go in the league stages, Virat Kohli and his men will look forward to getting a firm hold on one of the top two spots. In their next match, RCB will be taking on the Chennai Super Kings (CSK).

CSK has had a torrid time this season. Nothing seems to be going right for them and none of their players really stood apart except for Faf du Plessis and Sam Curran. In their last game, the Mumbai Indians (MI) absolutely annihilated them first with the ball and then with the bat resulting in a 10-wicket loss for MS Dhoni and his men. Already out of the tournament, CSK has got nothing to lose at this stage and should look to come hard at RCB.
