Chennai Super Kings
Chennai has done a fantastic job in every match. Shane Watson and Ambati Rayudu duo are in the salute form, which can prove to be dangerous against the attacking bowling attack of Bangalore. Under Suresh Raina, Dwayne Bravo and Dhoni, Chennai can win matches from any situation. All three of them can give a big score to the team and can reach any goal. Deepak Chahar impressed the Dhoni in the bowling. Deepak is also getting the support of Shardul Thakur. Both have played five and four matches respectively, and have taken six-six wickets respectively. All-rounder Watson is also added to the bowling lane of the team. In the spin department, leg-spinner Imran Tahir and Ravindra Jadeja have proved to be very useful for the team. Both have given success to the team in difficult times.
Royal Challengers Bangalore
There are some big names like Kohli, Abraham De Villiers, Mandeep Singh, Quinton D. Cock and Brendon McCullum in Bangalore, but none of these batsmen, except Kohli, have been performing according to their fame. Kohli has scored 231 runs with an average of 57.75 in five games. De Villiers played 90 runs in 39 balls against Delhi Daredevils, and if he continues to perform like this against Chennai, then it would be a great pleasure for Bangalore.
The team is eagerly looking forward to Yuzwedra Chahal and Washington Sundar Precious in bowling. Chris Woakes has also impressed in the bowling and has taken eight wickets. Umesh Yadav’s also has taken eight wickets.
