VIVO IPL 2021: CSK vs RCB Preview & Dream 11 Prediction
- RCB is unbeaten in IPL 2021
- CSK is in good form as well with three wins in its three previous matches
- RCB has a stronger batting lineup and that could be the difference in this match
Chennai Super Kings vs Royal Challengers Bangalore (CSKvRCB) : The 19th match of VIVO IPL 2021 will be played between these two teams CSKvRCB, The match will begin on 25 April at 03:30 pm IST.
We have a mouth-watering clash in IPL 2021 to look forward to now as the Chennai Super Kings get ready to face the Royal Challengers Bangalore. There is just so much going on for the fans as Chennai vs Bangalore rivalries, Dhoni vs Kohli fandoms, and the CSK vs RCB history gets played up.
IPL 2021 has been quite productive for both teams so far. CSK lost its opening match against Delhi Capitals but has since won the next three matches in a row. RCB, on the other hand, has four wins in four matches and seems to be getting better with every match.
This is going to be the last match that is played in Mumbai during IPL 2021 and it should hopefully be another very high-scoring contest to enjoy.
There has been a clear evolution in the manner that CSK has approached its matches when compared to last season. The batsmen have been more willing to take risks and score at a higher strike rate. The focus is less on keeping the wickets intact and more on scoring freely throughout the inning. It helps that CSK has a deep batting lineup with someone like Shardul Thakur batting at number 9.
RCB fans must truly believe that their team is one that can win the title this season. There are very few weaknesses in the RCB team right now and with four wins on the trot, the confidence has to be sky high.
The only area that RCB has to be careful of is in terms of batting depth. They are essentially playing with four batsmen with Shahbaz Ahmed and Washington Sundar as the other two in the top-6. A couple of early wickets could set the cat among the pigeons.
Date: April 25, 2021 (Sunday).
Time: 03:30 PM (IST), 10:00 AM (GMT).
Venue: Wankhede stadium, Mumbai
CSK vs RCB: Head to Head:
|Chennai Super Kings||Head to Head||Royal Challengers Bangalore|
|16 won||26 Matches||09 won|
|82 runs||Lowest Score||70 runs|
|208 runs||Highest Score||205 runs|
Pitch and Weather Conditions:
The pitches offered up by the Wankhede Stadium have been fantastic for batting in the last few matches. Scores have been around 200 in every match and it takes just one batsman to get set and start accelerating freely.
We expect the same for this match as well and think we are in for a high-scoring match. The spinners have also been able to get a bit of purchase from this strip and it will be interesting to see how that plays out.

CSK vs RCB Probably XI:
Batting: Ruturaj Gaikwad and Faf du Plessis scored runs in the previous match while Moeen Ali has been the enforcer in the middle overs. Suresh Raina has one good inning behind him but it is clear that he is not the same batsman that he was at his peak. Ambati Rayadu is the player that we think is a bit undervalued right now. He is batting with freedom and is able to get runs quickly no matter what stage he comes in. Still, with Suresh Raina, Ambati Rayadu, and MS Dhoni in the middle-order, opposition teams might see this as a potential weak area that they can attack CSK in.
X-Factor: Ravindra Jadeja and Sam Curran are responsible for getting the final push. The batting lineup is playing with the right attitude and has the depth to get a decent total in most matches.
Bowling: CSK’s bowling looks a cut above the rest when Deepak Chahar is firing. He picked up four wickets in the powerplay and is currently second in the race for the Purple Cap. Lungi Ngidi, Sam Curran, Ravindra Jadeja, and Shardul Thakur constitute what is an average bowling attack at best.
Predict XI: Ruturaj Gaikwad, Faf du Plessis, Moeen Ali, Suresh Raina, Ambati Rayudu, MS Dhoni, Sam Curran, Ravindra Jadeja, Deepak Chahar, Shardul Thakur, Lungi Ngidi
Batting: Glenn Maxwell and AB de Villiers were carrying the batting to some extent but in the previous match we saw Devdutt Padikkal score an attacking century and Virat Kohli hit form to get an unbeaten 72 to his name as well.
X-Factor: Glenn Maxwell and AB de Villiers were carrying the batting to some extent.
Bowling: The bowling has also not been at its best. Yuzvendra Chahal is having a poor IPL and has taken a wicket in just one out of the four matches he has played so far. Mohammad Siraj has been the pick of the RCB bowlers but his death bowling skills can be put under pressure.
Predict XI: Devdutt Padikkal, Virat Kohli, Shahbaz Ahmed, Glenn Maxwell, AB de Villiers, Washington Sundar, Kyle Jamieson, Daniel Sams/Kane Richardson, Harshal Patel, Mohammed Siraj, Yuzvendra Chahal
