Royal Challengers Banglore have been in the lower half of the points table since the very start of the IPL season 11.They have lost 3 games off the four they have played this season. However, RCB won their last match against Delhi Daredevils thanks to Ab De Villiers who seems to have got his form back. De Villiers hit 90 runs off just 39 balls and blew the opposition off their feet.
With this win, they jumped to the sixth position with four points from five games and their skipper Virat Kohli will hope that the match against Delhi was the beginning of their resurgence this season.
Coming to the ground with a big exciting win in their last match, RCB must be brimming with confidence but will have to face the mighty Chennai Super Kings who have never had a dull day in the history of Indian Premier League. They are the most consistent team of the league and have been slaying their enemies under the commands of Dhoni.
Since RCB registered their first win the last match, they are unlikely to disturb their winning combination and will keep the team unchanged.
Speaking of CSK, Chennai have got their biggest hitter Suresh Raina back in their squad. He has not only come back but has also performed well in his recent matches.
Virat Kohli has been in the ominous form in the IPL 2018 as he is the only batsman from Royal Challengers Banglore who has been consistent with his performances throughout. Though none of his knocks proved to be helpful to RCB in winning the matches, his knocks have proved to be crucial in RCB's overall performances.
