A clash after three long years

Royal Challengers Bangalore and Chennai Super Kings will be locking horns for the first time after a gap of almost three years. Given their performances in the tournament, CSK would be the obvious favourite for the match having won 4 out of 5 times. But a team with the likes of Kohli and ABD can never be underestimated.

CSK would like to clinch the top position in the team standings by winning this match whereas RCB's aim would be to avoid sinking further in the points table by registering a win. Here, we will be talking about the 5 players who are going to be the key for their teams.


#1 Virat Kohli

RCB's performance will depend a lot on how this batting genius plays in the match

Only the name is enough to instil fear among the opponent bowlers, such is the reputation of Kohli in the cricketing world. He has scored runs irrespective of the opposition, batting conditions or the format for that matter. IPL is no exception. His Current position at no. 2 in the list of the highest run-getters in the IPL history is a testimony to the fact.

Kohli is doing his job just fine this season too, despite his team's poor show. He has 231 runs against his name prior to this match at an impressive average of 57.75.

RCB fans would be looking for another quality performance from their captain.
