IPL 2018: CSK vs RCB

Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) probable playing XI against Chennai Super Kings (CSK)

Having won their last amusement against Mumbai Indians at home, Royal Challengers Bangalore are let with 3 wins well enough alone for the 8 diversions played. They have to go on a triumphant binge in their outstanding matches on the off chance that they need to make it to the playoffs. 

Chennai Superkings Vs Royal Challengers Bangalore

A Chennai side whose knocking down some pins assault is gotten in a wide range of sevens is maybe the best wager for Virat Kohli's side - who depend on their heavyweight batting - to proceed with their triumphant run.

Virat Kohli: Kohli is unsurprisingly the leading run scorer for the Royal Challengers Bangalore having scored 349 runs from 8 innings so far. With CSK being a good batting unit - 3 of their players have scored above 300 runs this season - it goes without saying that RCB will need their skipper to come through with a big score again.

AB de Villiers: The South African swashbuckler missed the last two games due to a viral infection but is all set to return to the team for this encounter. ABD definitely adds to RCB's batting prowess and a vital contribution from him would be expected on a batsman-friendly Pune pitch. He could also be asked to keep wickets to fill in for the absent De Kock.

Colin de Grandhomme: Colin de Grandhomme or 'CDG', as the name on the back of his jersey suggests, is the finisher in the RCB lineup who will once again be tasked with using his brute force to smack a few boundaries all around the park. He is a useful medium pacer too and will be bowling a couple of overs or more as per the circumstances.

Washington Sundar: Coming into the IPL on the back of a brilliant Nidahas Trophy where he topped the wicket-taking charts, it is safe to say that Washington Sundar has had a rather poor IPL so far.

He has taken only 4 wickets and has given away runs at a poor economy rate of 9.60. However, he will still be preferred in this game because of CSK's prevalent struggle against spin bowling.

Expected Chennai Super Kings XI: Shane Watson, Faf du Plessis, Suresh Raina, Ambati Rayudu, MS Dhoni, Ravindra Jadeja, Dwayne Bravo, Karn Sharma, Harbhajan Singh, Lungisani Ngidi, KM Asif

Expected Royal Challengers Bangalore XI: Parthiv Patel, Brendon McCullum, Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers, Mandeep Singh, Colin de Grandhomme, Washington Sundar, Tim Southee, Umesh Yadav, Mohammed Siraj, Yuzvendra Chahal
