In the second match on super Sunday, Royal Challengers Bangalore will take on Chennai Super Kings at Bangalore's home ground at the M.Chinnaswamy Stadium.

Chennai Super Kings have won almost all the matches against Royal Challengers Bangalore in recent times and are tipped to repeat their heroics. They are sitting pretty at the top of the points table despite losing to Sunrise Hyderabad in their last match.

The previous match of the season between RCB and CSK was the opening match of the tournament, when CSK romped home by skittling out RCB for just 70 runs.

Bangalore have had a horrid run overall but have been successful in winning two out of their last three matches. They have been boosted by the return of Dale Steyn who claimed figures of 40-2 in the last match and troubled the opposition batsmen.

Virat Kohli and Moeen Ali also found their touch, Kohli notching up his first century of IPL 2019. Navdeep Saini, Yuzvendra Chahal and Marcus Stoinis are the other leading players for RCB.

MS Dhoni is likely to be back for Chennai Super Kings after missing out the last match due to back spasm. That might also mean the return of Mitchell Santner in place of Karn Sharma. With the likes of Faf du Plessis, Imran Tahir and Deepak Chahar in fine form, Chennai Super Kings are expected to pull off another win.

Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams.

Royal Challengers Bangalore- Virat Kohli (c), Parthiv Patel (wk), AB de Villiers, Moeen Ali, Marcus Stoinis, Akshdeep Nath, Pawan Negi, Mohammed Siraj, Navdeep Saini, Dale Steyn, Yuzvendra Chahal

Chennai Super Kings- Shane Watson, Faf du Plessis, Suresh Raina, Ambati Rayudu, Kedar Jadhav, MS Dhoni (c)(wk), Ravindra Jadeja, Mitchell Santner, Deepak Chahar, Shardul Thakur, Imran Tahir
