Royal Challengers Bangalore will host the Chennai Super Kings at the M. Chinnaswamy in the 24th match of the season. It will be a more important game for RCB as they won just two games so far in this season while CSK has played very well think season as they have lost just a single game. Moeen Ali and Parthiv Patel were seen practicing for long hours in the nets. So, they might replace Corey Anderson and Manan Vohra with them. But as they won the last game against Delhi convincingly, so, Kohli can go with the same playing XI.
CSK coach Stephen Fleming said in the press conference that Imran Tahir is once again fit and he hinted of two leg spinners playing. If that happens, then either Billings or Faf du Plessis will be dropped from the side. This will allow Ambati Rayudu to once again open with Shane Watson. CSK will start as the favourites as the head to headcount (12-7) is in their favor and CSK have also defeated them in their last four encounters. But both teams won their last games so they will be positive to win those two precious points. Bengaluru is expected to have heavy thundershowers just like the last game at Delhi. It will be another slow and sluggish wicket, so, toss will play a crucial role.
