CSK vs RCB Predictions and Betting : Team News
In last match against Delhi Capitals RCB failed in both the fronts, batting and bowling. Bowlers gave 196 runs while batting RCB could score only 137 runs in 20 runs.
RCB has one of the strongest batting line up lead by Captain Virat Kohli. However, they have mostly failed chasing targets in IPL 2020. The X-factor in their batting line up has been young Devdutt Padikkal who has preformed in almost all the IPL 2020 matches that he played.
Aaron Finch has also looked comfortable but needs to get a big score which is long due for the team. After a string of low scores for the captain, Virat Kohli has finally silenced his critics with a well-made 72 against Rajasthan Royals and 43 against Delhi Capitals.
There’s little that is left to say about the team’s savior AB De Villiers who has been in top form and has donned the gloves for the team that has given extra flexibility in the eleven. Allrounder Washington Sundar and Shivam Dube are yet to impress with their performances.
In bowling the two leggies Yuzvendra Chahal and Adam Zampa have looked good.
The duo of Navdeep Saini and Isuru Udana have been effective but they will have to control the run flow in the death which is still an area of concern. Moeen Ali played his first match of IPL 2020 against Delhi Capitals but was not much effective.
Except for Faf Du Plessis no other batsman have played consistently well for CSK in this season's IPL. However, in last two matches Shane Watson has scored consecutives fifties.
Captain MS Dhoni is yet to find his mojo back. Except for match against Rajasthan Royals, he has struggled in IPL 2020. Kedar Jadhav disappointed in last match against Kolkata.
Sam Curran has performed both with bat and ball. He is the third highest wicket taking bowler in the season so far CSK. Ravindra Jadeja is gradually returning to his best.
Piyush Chawla was dropped for match against Kolkata. Deepak Chahar bowled really well in the first two matches but was disappointing in the match against DC and Kolkata.
All eyes will be on Shardul Thakur who has been impressive in last 3 matches that he played.
