In a high profile Indian Premier League (IPL 2020) match, the Chennai Super Kings will tae on the Royal Challengers Bangalore this Saturday. The two teams really need a win. It will be interesting to see MS Dhoni face off against Virat Kohli after quite some time.
Chennai Super Kings
Chennai Super Kings fell to the fifth position in the IPL points table due to loss in the last game against Kolkata Knight Riders. They won two games and lost four in this season of IPL.
Only good thing for Chennai in last two matches is a good form of Aussie batsman Shane Watson. He hammered two back to back fifties in the last two games. Proteas batsman Faf du Plessis is the highest runs-scorer in this season for Chennai. He scored 299 runs from six IPL matches with an average of 74.75 and a strike rate of 151.01. Form of skipper MS Dhoni and Kedar Jadhav is a thing of concern for Chennai Super Kings. English allrounder Sam Curran is making an impact in this season of IPL by his all-round game. All bowlers like Dwayne Bravo, Shardul Thakur and Karn Sharma bowled well in the last game. Chennai need to gain some momentum in this season of IPL to qualify for playoffs. They will be looking forward to defeating Royal Challengers Bangalore in this game.
Royal Challengers Bangalore
Bangalore won three games of five in this season and ranked at the fourth position in the points table. Skipper Virat Kohli played two good knocks in the last two games. Young opener Devdutt Padikkal slammed three half-centuries in just five games. Aussie opener Aaron Finch could score only one fifty in this season of IPL. Sri Lankan pacer Isuru Udana is providing wickets in powerplay and bowled well in death overs. They would hope that death bowling specialist Chris Morris will become fit. They can replace English all-rounder Moin Ali or opener Aaron Finch with Chris Morris in this game. All-rounder Shivam Dube failed to make any impact for Bangalore in this season of IPL. Off-spinner Washington Sunder is bowling economical spells for Bangalore. They will be looking forward to defeating Chennai Super Kings in this game
