The wait is finally over, big match day for possibly the biggest rivalry of IPL, Chennai Super Kings are up against Royal Challengers Bangalore at the Dubai International Stadium.
Looking at both sides, the Virat Kohli led Bangalore have won three out of five games so far in this tournament which is definitely a rare sight as we’ve never seen them get a good start. That being said, they’ve played some good cricket, whether be it the opening partnerships or the bowling up front, they are coming forward as one of the dominant teams.
‘Captain Cool’ MS Dhoni’s Chennai Super Kings are coming after losing against the Kolkata Knight Riders, hoping they could probably shake off the disastrous lower-order batting, which can be held accountable for their loss.
The currently placed fifth, Royal Challengers could grab hold of the third spot on the table if they seal the game tonight. But they have a lot to fix, their inadequate batting in the middle order, scarce and run-leaking death bowling is allowing the opposition to snatch away games deftly. The Super Kings ever since the return of Dwayne Bravo have looked out-an-out seems forthcoming back to the top four.
We anticipate tonight, a highly intense show by both the emotionally polar, former and current captains of the Indian National Team, this one’s going to be interesting. Now let’s take a look at the top 5 players to watch out for.
Let’s take a look at the top 5 key players we should watch out for when Chennai Super Kings lock horns with Royal Challengers Bangalore:
1. Virat Kohli
King Kohli, no amount of words can articulate the quality with which he bats, plethora of cricketing records and master of run chases.
Started off the season with a string of low scores and poor fielding, now he seems to return back at his regular form, with scoring over 115 runs in the last two matches, with mixed results, one being him successfully taking his team home victoriously, other not-so.
