Chennai Super Kings and Royal Challengers Bangalore will meet each other in match number 25 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 season. CSK have been poor this season and have already registered four defeats from six. RCB have won three and lost two so far.

CSK were trolled by fans for their shabby performance against KKR the other night. Skipper MS Dhoni criticized the batsmen for not delivering and asked them to be more innovative. One expects Kedar Jadhav to be dropped from the starting XI.

RCB were beaten convincingly by DC in their previous match and Virat Kohli will need a response from his side. RCB need an all-round show to defy CSK, who are generally good at the death overs.

CSK vs RCB: Dream11 team prediction

Batsmen: Devdutt Padikkal, Shane Watson, Faf du Plessis (vc), Virat Kohli (c)

Wicket-keeper: AB de Villiers (wk).

All-rounders: Shivam Dube, Sam Curran, Washington Sundar.

Bowlers: Yuzvendra Chahal, Deepak Chahar, Shardul Thakur.

Rationale behind the Dream11 team

The batting gets the desired steel in the form of experienced T20 batsmen such as Kohli, Faf, Watson and ABD. All four have the quality to make their presence felt and give you maximum points. In-form Padikkal fits in as well.

Three all-rounders come into this Dream11 team. Curran, Dube and Sundar get the nods. The bowling gets more depth in the form of Chahal and CSK pace duo Thakur and Chahar.

Probable starting XI

CSK – Ambati Rayudu, Shane Watson, Faf du Plessis, MS Dhoni (c & wk), Dwayne Bravo, Ruturaj Gaekwad, Sam Curran, Ravindra Jadeja, Karn Sharma, Deepak Chahar, Shardul Thakur.

RCB – Aaron Finch, Devdutt Padikkal, Virat Kohli (c), AB de Villiers (wk), Moeen Ali, Shivam Dube, Washington Sundar, Isuru Udana, Navdeep Saini, M Siraj, Yuzvendra Chahal.

Match prediction

RCB could pile on the misery for CSK and get a win here.

Head-to-head record

In 24 meetings, CSK have won 15 to RCB’s eight. One match didn’t have a result.
