MS Dhoni-led Chennai Super Kings (CSK) who lost their last three games will take on Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB). The top concern for CSK is their bowling which doesn’t look to subside anytime soon. CSK are second on the points table and are on the edge to make it to the playoffs once again. This season, CSK have been involved in some dramatic finishes. The last time CSK met RCB, they managed to pick up an easy win at Bengaluru. Here are the probable dream XI for the Super Kings:
CSK: Shane Watson, Faf Du Plessis, Suresh Raina, Ambati Rayudu, MS Dhoni, Ravindra Jadeja, Dwayne Bravo, Karn Sharma, Lungi Ngidi, KM Asif, Deepak Chahar.
On the other hand, RCB has pulled up their socks in the last encounter against Mumbai Indians which they won by 14-runs. But the job for RCB is not yet done. In eight matches, they have only managed to win only three, and now they need to win all their remaining matches to make it through the playoffs. The good news for RCB is that their explosive batsman AB de Villiers has recovered from his illness and will be added to the playing XI against CSK. RCB will be eager to exploit the recent setbacks CSK have faced and will look to bring a more confident side to challenge the home side. But they still would need to be cautious considering the tremendous batting line-up at CSK’s disposal. Here we see the probable dream XI for the Royal Challengers:
RCB: Brendon McCullum, Parthiv Patel, Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers, Corey Anderson, Mandeep Singh, Mohammad Siraj, Manan Vohra, Washington Sundar, Tim Southee, Umesh Yadav.
