BLR vs CSK Dream11 Team: The Match 44 of the Indian Premier League 2020 will witness the Royal Challengers Bangalore and Chennai Super Kings lock horns against each other. The Bangalore team is riding high with the form of their key batsmen and exceptional performance from bowlers. The top 4 batters, Padikkal, Finch, Kohli, and De Villiers have been able to provide significant contributions and kept the playoffs hopes alive for the team. While the bowlers like Chahal and Siraj have boosted the bowling unit’s confidence that was missing in the earlier seasons. The team looks well balanced to make inroads into the playoffs stage.
On the other side, the CSK is virtually out of the playoffs race and lies at the bottom of the points table. One of the most experienced teams in the tournament has not displayed the same performance as the earlier seasons. The duo Watson-Plessis started off on a good not but soon faltered as the season progressed. While the middle order batsmen like Dhoni and Rayudu could not gain enough momentum to push their tally of scores and help the team in crucial situations. The bowlers, apart from Curran have proved to be ineffective in containing the opposition batsman and pick wickets in a timely manner. It would be interesting to see if Bangalore can register a victory in the RCB vs CSK Dream 11 team prediction.

BLR vs CSK Prediction Who will Win today IPL match?
Bangalore will most probably win this match. They have been really tired with so many matches, not resulting in their side, despite performing decent enough (unlike the last game). The last game they played was a serious batting collapse of the top order, it all went down to Sam Curran who pushed the total to above 100 with his 55 run knocks. Chennai might not be strong this season but will fight hard to finish above RR, or just not finish at the last. The management will tend to make changes in all the departments, which could result in a win for them in their last few games. Faf and Rayudu will look to score some runs on the board, which can take them to a win. Bangalore has been very consistent this year and can easily win this one, but the intent of Chennai will be strong and will look to come to winning ways. Bangalore will be eager to win this one, to officially confirm their spot in the playoffs. Here is the probable playing XI for RCB vs CSK Dream 11 prediction.
