Wednesday is the day many fans would have been waiting for as it is the clash of the big guns of the Indian Premier League (IPL). Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) face off in a must-win game for both teams.
The Chennai franchise would be hoping for their second consecutive win under the leadership of reappointed captain MS Dhoni. CSK were excellent in their last game against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) and need to continue this form in order to be in the contention for the playoffs.
Royal Challengers Bangalore have been a mixed bag this season. There are days that they are miles ahead of their opponent but then there are days when they hit rock bottom. RCB have won five games out of their 10 games and need to win all their games to make sure they are in the race for the top four.
