Indian Premier League, 2019 | Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Chennai Super Kings PREVIEW

RCB vs CSK  Dream11 Match Prediction | Who Will Win Today Match

Bengaluru, April 21, Sunday at 08:00 PM IST

The second fixture of Sunday's doubleheader in Vivo IPL 2019 will be played at M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore between the hosts Royal Challengers Bangalore and the table-toppers Chennai Super  Kings. This will be the second time both the sides will be coming face to face in this season.

Both the sides first met in the tournament opener at M Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai which saw Royal Challengers Bangalore folding up at mere 70 runs total and the hosts registered an easy win. So, will Chennai Super Kings succeed in making a double over Royal Challengers Bangalore or the hosts will manage a win on the back of home advantage?

Boosted up with their last win over KKR, this is a must-win game for the hosts to keep their hopes alive. Placed at the bottom of the table, RCB has managed two wins in nine encounters and need to win every single game to finish off in top four positions.

On the contrary,  sitting at the top, Chennai Super Kings have faced only two defeats and have secured seven wins in nine outings so far. They faced a defeat against SRH in their last encounter and would be desperate to bounce back and return to winning ways.
