The pitch at the Chinnaswamy Stadium is expected to be a good one to bat on, with the average first-innings score reading 195. However, the last day game in Bangalore saw Royal Challengers Bangalore defend 174 against the Delhi Capitals. While pacers have accounted for the majority of the wickets, spinners should play a big role. Although chasing is the preferred option at the venue, the pitch should not change much during the course of the match.
Virat Kohli (6 matches, 279 runs, Average: 55.80) Virat Kohli has been in brilliant form for the Royal Challengers Bangalore, scoring 279 runs in six matches. He is averaging 55.80 with four fifties to his name, with three of them coming in Bangalore itself.
Jason Behrendorff (2/37 in the previous game vs SRH) Jason Behrendorff has also had a decent time in the IPL this season. He has six wickets in four matches with an average of 20.17. He is an excellent exponent of swing bowling, often picking up wickets with the new ball.
