RCB vs CSK: CSK are back with MS Dhoni as captain and are looking for a comeback as they chase an unlikely five wins in five games. They won the previous game against Sunrisers, but the win is not without worry as the bowling line-up still remains a concern.
The Royal Challengers Bangalore are struggling with results as well having lost a few games on the trot. They will be pleased to see that Virat Kohli had some time out in the middle and will hope that his slow fifty will help him find form and get back to his swift touch.

Dwayne Bravo and Moeen Ali may be back for Mitchell Santner and any other overseas player.
Virat Kohli may have cost his team a winning score in the previous game but his return to form with a fifty is a promising prospect. Now that he has spent time in the middle, Virat Kohli may have some more confidence while batting and this could help him score runs with ease in the upcoming games.
Ruturaj Gaikwad made a wonderful 99 in the previous game to announce his return to form. His lack of runs has been a huge concern for CSK but with him now doing well, CSK could hope to push for five wins although it seems very unlikely.
RCB vs CSK Match Tips
CSK may have won the previous game but their bowling remains a concern along with their consistency. They have a stiff task ahead of them and winning five in a row seems very unlikely especially against a strong RCB side that are looking to bounce back as well.
Match Prediction: RCB will win the match.
