After a 59-run defeat against the Delhi Capitals, the Royal Challengers Bangalore will look to get back to winning ways when they cross paths with the Chennai Super Kings in their next game of IPL 2020.
CSK and RCB have been a part of many dramatic encounters in the IPL. The last time when these two teams battled each other, RCB edged CSK by one run.
