CSK vs RCB Dotball Prediction | Chennai Super Kings vs Royal Challengers Bangalore IPL Preview | Team News & Fantasy Team

The grand domestic tournament in the Indian Premier League will see it’s 12th edition take place as defending champions Chennai Super Kings host Royal Challengers Bangalore in the season opener on Saturday.

Chennai Super Kings came back to the IPL after a two year forced hiatus with a bang. The team is now the franchise who has won the title most number of times with four championships. They have a pillar of consistency, and it is clear that they are unlikely to stop anytime soon. Led by the former Indian captain in MS Dhoni, this group of players is hungry to assert their dominance and waive their yellow wand to create yet another magical campaign in the history of this premier tournament.

Meanwhile, Royal Challengers Bangalore have been a side who have underperformed more often than not. Known as one of the marquee franchises who get a lot of eyes whenever they play, the team did not have a good season. The team finished in the sixth spot and missed out on a spot in the playoffs. Skipper Virat Kohli has got the pressure of the entire country on his shoulders to win the ICC World Cup 2019, and he will be looking to make a statement by leading this team to a decent outing this time out.

Match Details:

Venue – MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai, India

Date & Time – 23rd March | 8:00 PM IST
