According to the IPL schedule 2022, the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) will be hoping to end their losing streak in the 2022 Indian Premier League (IPL) when they take on the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) at the DY Patil Stadium in Navi Mumbai on Tuesday. Chennai have played four matches so far, but have failed to register a single win. On the other hand, Bangalore go into the game having completed a hat-trick of victories and will undoubtedly have the upper hand.
In their previous match, Chennai were hammered by eight wickets by the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH). Batting first, CSK managed an under-par 154 for 7. In response, SRH romped home in 17.4 overs. The form of opener Ruturaj Gaikwad is among the biggest concerns for the defending champions heading into the clash against RCB.
Bangalore came up with a clinical effort against the Mumbai Indians (MI) in their previous IPL 2022 clash. The bowlers combined well to restrict MI to 151 for 6. Young Anuj Rawat then hit a fine fifty to guide the chase. Virat Kohli also helped himself to a fluent 48.
Today's IPL toss result
Bangalore have won the toss and on rather expected lines have opted to bowl first. Speaking about the decision, skipper Faf du Plessis said:
“Going with the trend of the tournament, win the toss and bowl.”
RCB have made two changes to their IPL team. Josh Hazlewood comes in, while Suyash Prabhudessai is also part of the playing XI. David Willey misses out, while Harshal Patel has left the bio-bubble following the death of his sister. CSK are going in with an unchanged squad.
