The Royal Challengers Bangalore will take on the Chennai Super Kings in Match 35 of the Indian Premier League 2021 on September 24 in Sharjah.
The Virat Kohli-led team are coming on the back of a dismal performance in their last match against the Kolkata Knight Riders. They were bowled out for a paltry 92 and lost by 9 wickets, due to which their NRR has taken a hit. Bangalore are third on the points table with five wins in eight matches and an NRR of -0.706.

In contrast, the Chennai Super Kings scripted an emphatic victory in their last match against Mumbai Indians. Ruturaj Gaikwad scored a match-winning 88 not out in the first innings. They defended 156 runs securing their sixth win of the tournament and are second on the table.
Chennai will be confident heading into their next game, however, Bangalore has a star-studded line-up and is not a team to be taken lightly. With both the teams trying to consolidate their position on the points table for the knockouts, we are in for an interesting contest on Friday in Sharjah.
