Match 19 of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2021) will see Chennai Super Kings take on Royal Challengers Bangalore at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on Sunday.

Royal Challengers Bangalore have shrugged the tags of underwhelmers, at least for now, as they sit atop the IPL 2021 points table. Riding on the exploits of Glenn Maxwell and AB de Villiers, the RCB had a successful Chennai leg, although it was all about Devdutt Padikkal in their last win over the Rajasthan Royals. Adding Virat Kohli and Harshal Patel's form will only sweeten the deal for the Royal Challengers Bangalore, who will be looking to make it two wins in two at the Wankhede Stadium.

However, they will come across an equally impressive Chennai Super Kings side who have come a long way since their disappointing loss to the Delhi Capitals in their opening IPL 2021 clash. While there are some concerns on the bowling front, CSK's well-balanced batting unit has made full use of the conditions at Wankhede. With Faf du Plessis also scoring an impressive fifty in the Chennai Super Kings' previous game against Kolkata Knight Riders, the three-time IPL champions look set to extend their winning streak to four games.

Although both teams are well-matched on paper, one might hand the advantage to Royal Challengers Bangalore, given the plethora of stars in their batting line-up. However, the Chennai Super Kings boast perhaps the most well-balanced side in IPL 2021, which should make for an entertaining clash on Sunday.

Pitch Report

The pitch at the Wankhede Stadium is a good one to bat on, with scores of over 180 being notched up here at an alarming rate. While the spinners won't get much purchase off the surface, the pacers will be key in the powerplay overs, given the swing on offer. However, the batsmen will target the shorter boundaries with the ball coming on to the bat fairly well. Both teams will look to bat first, with it being an afternoon fixture and the conditions not expected to change much during the game. 180-190 should be par at the venue.
