Royal Challengers Bangalore will face Chennai Super Kings in the Vivo IPL 2021’s 35th match on September 24th at the Sharjah Cricket Association Ground.
Royal Challenger Banglore
Having lost the previous match against KKR by a margin of 9 wickets, RCB is sitting at 3rd place in the points table. RCB would hope to get their first win of second leg of the IPL 2021. The batting trio of Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers and Glen Maxwell were not able to do anything against the KKR bowling line-up, but now they will be looking to regain their batting form and get their team over the line in this match. Their bowling department looks helpless in the last match but will be hoping to restrict CSK batsmen and not allow them to bat freely. It is the matter of a good inning for the Batsman in their rank as anyone of them can win the game single handily at any given day. RCB’s fan must be hoping to win this match which will make their chances stronger for the play-offs.
Possible Playing XI
Devdutt Padikkal, Virat Kohli (C), Kona-Srikar Bharat (WK), AB de Villiers, Glenn Maxwell, Wanindu Hasaranga, Shahbaz Ahmed, Kyle Jamieson, Harshal Patel, Mohammad Siraj, Yuzvendra Chahal
Chennai Super Kings
One of the best team of IPL history, and the team sitting at 2nd spot in the points table. CSK is performing as per their name like a Super Kings of the IPL. Just 2 wins away from a spot in playoffs, so they will want get the win and secure. Having won 6 matches out of 8 games, is the most settled team of the tournament. The form of Du Plessis and Rituraj Gaikwad is a is the best of the tournament as the they consistency is the key for CSK’ success throughout the tournament. That’s the reason they were able to register the first win of 2nd leg of VIVO IPL 2021. Their bowlers then did an outstanding job of limiting MI’s batsmen. They’ll have to be at their best in Sharjah, a stadium that hasn’t been kind to bowlers in the past. Not many changes are expected in the playing XI.
Possible Playing XI
Ruturaj Gaikwad, Faf Du Plessis, Ambati Rayudu/ Robin Uthappa, Moeen Ali, Suresh Raina, Ravindra Jadeja, MS Dhoni (C/WK), DJ Bravo, Josh Hazlewood/ Imran Tahir, Shardul Thakur, and Deepak Chahar.
Head to Head
In the cash-rich league so far, Bangalore and Chennai have met 28 times, with CSK winning 18 of them. Nine games have been won by RCB, with one game ending in a draw. Chennai Super Kings defeated Royal Challengers Bangalore by 69 runs in the first leg of the Indian Premier League.
The batsmen will find everything they need on the Sharjah wicket. Sharjah is a batting heaven thanks to its batting-friendly ground and short boundaries. Because of the narrow boundaries, batsmen have an easy time clearing the ropes, and large totals are common. In Sharjah, bowlers must rely on their variations to get up wickets, whether they are spinners or pacers. The Sharjah surface offers little to bowlers, and bowling stock deliveries could lead to being too predictable and going for large runs.

Because of the form of their batsmen and the fact that their bowling is also playing well, we will bet on CSK to win this match. RCB is currently struggling since CSK is a more settled team than RCB.
