IPL 2020 – RCB vs CSK: Match preview, Fantasy XI team and Prediction

Super Sunday of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 will feature a fun matchup as Royal Challengers Bangalore will take on the Chennai Super Kings.

CSK will have to win all their remaining three matches to at least give themselves a rare chance. However, only once in history has a team qualified with 12 points. Therefore, CSK is pretty much out of the tournament. That being said, they are more than capable of spoiling the RCB party and prevent them from getting into the top 2 positions. CSK is coming off yet another disappointing defeat against the Mumbai Indians.

RCB, on the other hand, is coming off a dominating win over the Kolkata Knight Riders.

Chennai Super Kings

When official, this would be the first time that CSK hasn’t qualified for the playoffs. However, they can always play for pride and focus on their positives. CSK is coming off a massive 10 wicket loss against the Mumbai Indians. Batting first, half the CSK team was back into the pavilion for a mere score of 21 runs. Sam Curran played a good knock of 52 to take the side to 114 in 20 overs. That obviously wasn’t enough as CSK failed to take even a single MI wicket.

RCB, on the other hand, did something even brutal to KKR than what MI did to CSK. RCB bowled phenomenally to restrict KKR to a score of mere 85 runs. Mohammed Siraj stood out as he became the first bowler ever to bowl two back-to-back maidens overs in the history of IPL. Not to forget, both of them were wicket maidens as well.

Fantasy XI team

VIRAT KOHLI (10.5) (C) – Kohli is back in form and that’s bad news for bowlers! He’s always an inning away from gaining confidence. He’ll be our captain.

CHRIS MORRIS (9.5) (VC) – Morris has looked great so far and picked up wickets at crucial stages of the game. He contributed handsomely with the bat as well. He’ll be our vice-captain.

AB DE VILLIERS (10) – AB de Villiers has been extremely consistent with this IPL. 

SHANE WATSON/ AMBATI RAYADU (9) – CSK is expected to bring Watson back in the side. If that does not happen, we go with Ambati Rayadu.

AARON FINCH (8.5) – Aaron Finch has given some really good starts to RCB.

SAM CURRAN (9) – Sam Curran has bowled consistently this IPL. He also scores crucial runs in the lower middle-order. There are chances that he can be promoted as well.

RAVINDRA JADEJA (9) – Jadeja has been in great form with the bat. He has been giving CSK the punch they always needed. He can be useful with the ball as well.

YUZVENDRA CHAHAL (9) – Chahal has developed into a phenomenal and intelligent limited over spinner.

MOHAMMED SIRAJ (8) – After what he did in his last match, Siraj makes it into our team.

DEEPAK CHAHAR (8.5) –  Chahar has been contributing with crucial wickets especially in the powerplay overs.

SHARDUL THAKUR (8.5) – Thakur has looked in decent form in the chances he got this IPL.

PREDICTION

CSK is finding it extremely difficult to find any combination whatsoever. RCB, however, has one of the most stable combinations of all teams this season. Royal Challengers Bangalore will therefore defeat the Chennai Super Kings.
