    Both CSK and RCB have strong teams on paper, however, ever since, it has always been MS Dhoni’s side who has had the edge in the previous matches. Also, CSK throughout the years has been playing a similar line-up, which has turned to be highly effective for their reign in the IPL.

    CSK Predicted XI:

    Shane Watson
    Faf Du Plessis
    Suresh Raina
    Ambati Rayudu
    MS Dhoni (C + WK)
    Dwayne Bravo
    Kedar Jadhav
    David Willey
    Ravindra Jadeja
    Deepak Chahar
    Mohit Sharma / KM Asif
    The inclusion of KM Asif could be a surprise to many, but provided his extra pace, he has the ability to bowl quick deliveries. However, it is more likely that CSK will opt for Mohit Sharma in the opening rubber.

    RCB Predicted XI:

    Parthiv Patel (WK)
    Virat Kohli (C)
    Moeen Ali
    AB De Villiers
    Shimron Hetmyer
    Shivam Dube
    Washington Sundar
    Tim Southee
    Mohammad Siraj
    Umesh Yadav
    Yuzvendra Chahal
    All eyes will be on Shivam Dube, who promises to be India’s next best finisher.

    The opening rubber between CSK and RCB will be a close one, but provided with the head to head stats between both the teams, CSK indeed has the upper edge with MSD’s leadership qualities.
