Chennai Super Kings(CSK) are set to take on the Royal Challengers Bangalore(RCB) in a blockbuster contest in the Indian Premier League(IPL) on Tuesday, April 12. The match is set to take place at the Dr DY Patil Sports Academy in Navi Mumbai.
Chennai Super Kings:
Ravindra Jadeja took the reins of the side from this season but it has been a forgettable run the yellow outfit. The former Champions are yet to register a win this season in the four games they have played and their campaign is likely to get only tougher from here on. They brought Maheesh Theekshana into the playing XI in the previous game but he did not have much impact. U19 sensation Rajvardhan Hangargekar is likely to get his chance in the upcoming fixture.
Royal Challengers Bangalore:
Royal Challengers Bangalore are on the right track with three wins in their last three games and have clicked in most of the departments. The fans are expecting much more from their skipper Faf du Plessis at the top of the order. They have some of the best finishers available in the middle order. Josh Hazlewood might come into the playing XI if he is available, while Harshal Patel has left the bio-bubble due to personal reasons and he will have to undergo isolation when he returns.
WAGING ODDS: CSK (2.10) VS RCB (1.75)
RCB are the favorites and are priced at 1.75, meaning if you bet ₹100 on them and if they win the match, you’ll be making ₹175.
CSK are the underdogs and priced at 2.10 meaning if you bet ₹100 on them and if they win the match, you’ll be making ₹210.
Chennai Super Kings played their previous game against SRH at the same ground and they would have assessed the conditions to some extent. The conditions differ in day fixtures from night ones, and there is a possibility of the dew factor playing a role in this game. CSK will be eyeing to register the first win of the campaign but given RCB’s recent performance, they are likely to clinch a victory.
Prediction: RCB to win the match.
