Team News And Tournament So Far

Chennai Super Kings

For the first time in their history, Chennai Super Kings have lost their first four IPL games and are currently rooted to the bottom of the points table. It appears as though the leadership change is not going as intended, and they need to reassess their approach immediately.

Chennai Super Kings made three changes in their last game and are constantly on the lookout for the ideal combination. If Adam Milne recovers from his side injury,strain he will almost certainly replace Mukesh Choudhary in the eleven. Mooen Ali, Dwane Pretorius, and Mukesh Choudhary came in for Adam Milne, Devon Conway, and Mitchell Santner in their match against Lucknow. 

Chennai Super Kings Playing XI (Predicted) Against Punjab Kings :- Ruturaj Gaikwad, Robin Uthappa, Moeen Ali, Ambati Rayudu, Ravindra Jadeja(c), MS Dhoni(w), Shivam Dube, Dwayne Bravo, Dwaine Pretorius, Adam Milne, Tushar Deshpande

Royal Challengers Bangalore 

RCB started the season poory despite posting a mammoth score against Punjab Kings. However, their bowling was torn apart by the PBKS batsmen and they chased down 206. In the second game, RCB almost suffered a humiliating defeat as they struggled to chase down a very low score set up by KKR, but eventually managed to record their first win of the season. 

Glenn Maxwell, who recently married, will miss at least the first two games of Royal Challengers Bangalore, while his Australian counterparts Josh Hazlewood and Jason Behrendorff will miss the first three games since the Australian players would not be available until April 6.

RCB have managed to find the right balance in recent times, and managed a convinving win over rivals MI in the previous match, to move in to the top 4. 

RCB Probable XI - Faf du Plessis (c), Virat Kohli, Anuj Rawat, Dinesh Karthik (wk), Sherfane Rutherford, Shahbaz Ahmed, Wanindu Hasaranga, David Willey, Harshal Patel, Siddharth Kaul, Mohammed Siraj 

Betting Preview, Picks And Prediction

To Win The Match

Royal Challengers Bangalore are the favourites to win the match with odds of 1.85 as per Dafabet, despite a hurtful loss in their first game. This is primarily because RCB are in better form than CSK.

Top Team Batsman

Young Ruturaj Gaekwad is the favourite to be Chennai Super Kings’ top batsman in this match with odds of 3.25. He is followed by Moeen Ali at 5.00.  

RCB opener FAF Du Plessis is unsurprisingly the favourite to be their top batsman in this match with odds of 2.87. He played a brilliant innings in the first game but it went in vain eventually. His opening partner Virat Kohli has odds of 3.00. Dinesh Karthik has odds of 6.00 to be the top batsman.

Highest Opening Partnership

Chennai are now reliant on Gaekwad and Convoy to fire, which is an untested partnership but still have a lot of potential, and have odds of 2.05. RCB open with Du Plessis and Anuj Rawat, who had a successful stand in the previous match, and hence have odds of 1.91. 

Top Team Bowler

Dwayne Bravo is CSK’s favourite to be the top bowler with odds of just 3.75 , a testament to his wicket taking ability in the death overs. He has been one of the most prolific bowlers in the IPL in recent years.  He is followed by Adam Milne at 4.60 and KM Asif at 4.75.  

Last year’s top wicket-taker Harshal Patel is RCB’s favourite to be the top team bowler at 3.50, followed by Hasaranga at 4.00.

Total Runs In The Match

Odds of there being more than 341.5 runs in this match are 1.83, as per Dafabet. This seems highly achievable as both these teams have some brilliant batsmen and have scored plenty of runs this season.

Individual Player Betting

  • Devon Conway to score more than 24.5 runs has odds of 1.83 as per Dafabet, which is a tempting bet as he would like to give a quick start to his team as always. Du Plessis to score more than 29.5 runs against his former team has odds of 1.81, and it’s a solid bet as he is one of the best batsmen in the league and also in form.
  • RCB to hit the most sixes has odds of 1.83, which can be tempting with Du Plessis, Kohli, Karthik and Rutherford all capable of clearing the boundary. CSK to hit the most sixes has odds of 2.05, which is understandable as they have Dhoni and Moeen Ali, along with Devon Conway, who can clear the ropes with ease.
  • Harshal Patel to take 2 or more wickets has odds of 2.25, while Bravo to take 2 or more wickets has odds of 2.50, as this promises to be a clash of these brilliant pacers.
