Royal Challengers Bangalore
The RCB bowling squad was in absolute domination against KKR on Wednesday. Mohammed Siraj stole the show with two maidens and triple wickets, with equally stunning figures from Chahal and Sundar as they ousted the KKR batting order on 84 runs. Afterwards, it was an easy process for the RCB batsmen to win the match.
Full Squad: Virat Kohli (c), Parthiv Patel (wk), AB de Villiers, Chris Morris, Yuzvendra Chahal, Shivam Dubey, Aaron Finch, Umesh Yadav, Adam Zampa, Washington Sundar, Navdeep Saini, Mohammed Siraj, Dale Steyn, Moeen Ali, Pawan Negi, Gurkeerat Mann Singh, Isuru Udana, Devdutt Padikkal, Shahbaz Ahamad, Joshua Philippe (wk), Pavan Deshpande.
Chennai Super Kings
CSK continues to suffer from poor batting as they were eradicated one by one against MI on Saturday, with only Sam Curran making a worthy effort of 52. While defending a low total of 114 was a task impossible for CSK, Imran Tahir managed to keep the economy rate at 7.33 with similar figures from Hazlewood and Deepak Chahar.
Full Squad: KM Asif, Deepak Chahar, Piyush Chawla, Sam Curran, MS Dhoni (c & wk), Faf du Plessis, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Josh Hazlewood, Imran Tahir, Ravindra Jadeja, Kedar Jadhav, Narayan Jagadeesan (wk), Monu Kumar, Lungi Ngidi, Ambati Rayudu, Ravisrinivasan Sai Kishore, Mitchell Santner, Karn Sharma, Shardul Thakur, Murali Vijay, Shane Watson.
Waging odds: Royal Challengers Bangalore (1.61) vs Chennai Super Kings (2.25)
Royal Challengers Bangalore are priced at 1.61 and are the favourites. Betting ₹100 on them will earn you ₹161 if they snatch a victory.
Chennai Super Kings are priced at 2.25 and are the underdogs. Betting ₹100 on them will earn you ₹225 if they come out as winners.
In their previous clash in the current IPL, RCB won by 37 runs. Their spectacular bowling squad will be a massive threat for the lacklustre CSK batting order, who’s only hopes of landing a win is to rely on their bowlers to make things even. Be that as it may, the RCB batting squad has all the weapons to overpower them.
It will be a victory for Royal Challengers Bangalore.
