Chennai Super Kings have generally had the wood over RCB and beat them in both the matches played between the two teams in the last edition of the league. This will also be a battle between the two powerhouses of Indian cricket as MS Dhoni will lead CSK and Virat Kohli will marshall the troops of RCB.
Chennai Super Kings are likely to go with Shane Watson and Ambati Rayudu as their opening combination while Suresh Raina and Kedar Jadhav will follow in the middle order. MS Dhoni will probably slot himself as No 5 and would be in the role of the finisher along with Dwayne Bravo.
Virat Kohli and Parthiv Patel will start the proceedings for RCB. Now retired from international cricket, AB de Villiers will slot at one drop while Shimron Hetmyer is expected to bat at No 4.
All-rounders Moeen Ali and Shivam Dube will provide balance to the side. Umesh Yadav and Tim Southee would be their leading pacers while Yuzvendra Chahal will shoulder the responsibility of the spin attack.
Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams.
Chennai Super Kings- Shane Watson, Ambati Rayudu, Suresh Raina, Kedar Jadhav, MS Dhoni, Dwayne Bravo, Ravindra Jadeja, Deepak Chahar, Lungi Ngidi, Karn Sharma, Mohit Sharma/Shardul Thakur
