Pitch Analysis

Often Chennai’s pitch has been a slow,low-bounce wicket which helps a lot for spinners. But in recent times there were few high-scoring games that ceased us from giving a sure-shot prediction on how the pitch will behave today. But however, the teams will go with 3 spinners for sure. Bowlers like Mustafizur Rahman, and Shardul Thakur will be effective in these conditions as their cutters are very difficult to play.

Players to Watch Out For

From RCB, sure it will be Kohli and Cameron Green. Virat Kohli has performed very well against CSK in the past. He will look to continue the same form today. Let’s see what will be the strategy of CSK bowlers to stop “the King”. Same case with Green. He’s an explosive all-rounder and his game might be crucial for RCB to win this game.

From CSK it will be “the new captain” Ruturaj and the “costly” player Daryl Mitchell. Along with the batting, fans are eagerly waiting to witness the captaincy decisions from Ruturaj. Since the bowling line-up of RCB is a little weak, the approach of Daryl Mitchell in the middle order will play a pivotal role in the result of the match.
