Royal Challengers Bangalore and Chennai Super Kings would square off against each other in the 39th fixture of Indian Premier League 2019. This match is scheduled to be played at Bangalore’s home ground M. Chinnaswamy Stadium on Sunday.
Royals Challengers Bangalore have registered their 2nd win of his season after defeating Kolkata Knight Riders in their previous game. Once again V Kohli single-handedly took his team towards 200+ mark by scoring 100 runs off 58 balls. Now he would be only willing to win his remaining matches. Royals must focus on their bowling department. His bowlers have always failed in slowing down the runs in death overs.
On the other hand, Chennai Super Kings lost their previous game against Sunrises Hyderabad after winning multiple matches before. There have been talks all round that the loss came to CSK because the team did not have their captain, MS Dhoni, to lead the team. Chennai Super Kings are sitting at the peak of the points table with just two loss in the season.
The pitch at M Chinnaswamy is the best pitch to bat. Many high scoring games have been witnessed on this ground.
