One of the most awaited IPL battle – MS Dhoni vs Virat Kohli is coming down the line tomorrow. Virat Kohli led Royal Challengers Bangalore will host the Chinna Thala – MS Dhoni-led Chennai Super Kings at M Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bangalore on April 25. The clash will begin at 08:00 PM Local.
Both the teams will face each other after two years of the gap as CSK has returned after two years of hiatus. It will not only be legends vs legends but a battle of fans vs fans too. Moreover, a captivating contest is expected tomorrow in the home ground of Bangalore.
In head to head battle, CSK has more winnings. Both the teams have faced each other 21 times and CSK has won 13 of it while 1 ended up with no result. In their last encounter in 2015, CSK won by 3 wickets.
Total matches- 07
CSK – 03
BLR – 03
No result – 01
Both the teams have registered a win in their last encounter. And no changes are expected in both the sides. B McCullum in Bangalore may have to wait for some more matches as all the four overseas players are performing well. Manan Vohra is also expected to get another chance and open the innings with Q de Kock. Most probably RCB will follow the same lineup.
On the opposite, CSK is also not expected to tinker their combination. Faf du Plessis who played his first match is expected to come lower the order while Sam Billings might make way for Imran Tahir. However, it is not concrete.
Imran Tahir is fit to play. He can come in place of Sam Billings or Faf du Plessis.
One among Karn Sharma and Harbhajan Singh will get to play.

It’s a good news for RCB, Mr 360 looked in full flow in the last game against DD. With AB de Villiers returning to the form, RCB looks a bit stronger now. Batting will rely upon Q de Kock, V Kohli, AB de Villiers, Mandeep Singh and Manan Vohra.
In bowling, Umesh Yadav and Chris Woakes will have to take the charge. Both have picked 8 wickets each so far.
In CSK, Suresh Raina, Shane Watson, Ambati Rayudu and skipper MS Dhoni are in good form. Almost everyone is contributing to the team’s winning. Dwayne Bravo and R Jadeja in the lower middle order can also finish things off in style.
In bowling, Shane Watson, Deepak Chahar, Dwayne Bravo and Shardul Thakur will be crucial. Deepak Chahar (4-15-3) was the most wicket taker bowler in the last match for CSK.
Both the teams will like to carry their winning momentum forward. While CSK has won 4 out of 5 matches and has grabbed the second position, RCB resides at 6th position with 2 winnings in 5 matches. Things have not worked out for RCB, especially bowling. They are consistently lacking in restricting the opposition to achievable target.
Moreover, as per our BLR vs CHE match predictions, CSK will be favorite in tomorrow’s clash.
In wicketkeeper, you can take anyone among Q de Kock and MS Dhoni. Both will be a good choice. However, prefer Q de Kock as he opens the batting for RCB
In batting, S Raina, V Kohli, AB de Villiers and A Rayudu will be good choices.
In allrounder, we will choose Shane Watson, D Bravo, and C Woakes. R Jadeja is also a good option but he gets chance to bat or ball in the very end.
In bowling, D Chahar, Umesh Yadav, Shardul Thakur and Yuzvendra Chahal will be the right choice.
