- Chennai with complete confidence
- RCB returned
- The game is in Sharjah
CSK beat Mumbai in the first match of the UAE edition and RCB enters the second match after a humiliating loss to KKR. RCB lost to KKR by 9 wickets. This is an opportunity for the team to bounce back from that loss.
The challenge for the team is to have great players on the team but not be up to the task. The RCB, which includes captain Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers and Glenn Maxwell, hope to do well on the batting field in Sharjah.
Chennai is currently in second place in the points table. Captain MS Dhoni’s tactics remain solid. The form of the opener Rituraj Gaekwad and the excellence of the bowlers give him confidence. The CSK is also a team with excellent off-roaders.
