Bengaluru, April 21, Sunday at 08:00 PM IST
The second fixture of tonight will witness the clash of Chennai Super Kings and Royal Challengers Bangalore at M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru. The hosts have registered a win against KKR in the last encounter while the table toppers are coming after facing off a defeat at the hands of Sunrisers Hyderabad in the last encounter. Also, as this is an 8 PM clash in Chinnaswamy, it is expected to be another high-scoring clash like the previous ones
Chennai Super Kings are comfortably sitting at the top position with 7 wins under their belt. In nine outings, they have faced only two defeats so far. One against Mumbai in Wankhede and other in Hyderabad against Surnrisers in the previous encounter.
On the opposite, Royal Challengers Bangalore have only managed two wins in nine encounters. They have faced seven defeats so far and need to win all of their remaining games to fancy their chances into the playoffs.
When last time both the teams met at M Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai, the defending champions registered an easy 7 wickets win. So, can they double it over RCB tonight? The wait ends at 08:00 PM tonight.

This RCB vs CSK Dream11 prediction is high-risk but you may reap rewards if some assumptions come off. We advise you not to use these teams in small league contests.
Team 1 & 2: Pick the less chosen
As MS Dhoni missed the last game, people have chosen Parthiv Patel over him in wicketkeeper.
As obvious, V Kohli and Faf du Plessis are the favourites in the list of batsmen
Moen Ali and R Jadeja are the most picked all-rounders
I Tahir, D Chahar and N Saini are the favourites in bowlers
Team 3 & 4: Unorthodox combinations
