Royal Challengers Bangalore and Chennai Super Kings face each other in the second double header scheduled for the 21st of April. The match will be played at M. Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore.
Both teams missed their star players in the last game, AB de Villiers and MS Dhoni, who are most likely to return to this crucial game. For RCB every win is important from here on, while CSK look comfortable up there in the points table. These two teams opened the IPL 2019, and Virat Kohli’s men faced a humiliating defeat after getting out at 70 odd runs.
Since the ground is small, its expected to be a high scoring game, however light drizzle could play a spoilsport.
