CSK will trust their bowling department to keep RCB's strong batting line-up in check. Leg-spinner Karn Sharma, preferred to the experienced Piyush Chawla, did a fine job against Kolkata Knight Riders by taking 2 for 25 in four overs. He was ably supported by Sam Curran, Dwayne Bravo and Shardul Thakur to put the brakes on KKR batsmen. The match against RCB will be a similar one given their top order batsmen are all capable of scoring big runs.
RCB lost their last match against Delhi Capitals. Chasing 197 became a tall order for Virat Kohli's team after RCB lost the in-form Devdutt Padikkal, Aaron Finch and superman AB de Villiers in the first six overs. Kohli's 43 of 39 balls was not enough as the middle order could not play catch-up to the mounting asking rate. RCB could contemplate playing South African all-rounder Chris Morris ahead of Moeen Ali or Finch to give an extra pace option and some greater versatility to the lower order batting.
