IPL 2021: 5 Fantasy Picks for RCB vs CSK clash in UAE, Playing11 and Live Streaming – September 24: A yet another thrilling encounter is on the cards when Virat Kohli’s Royal Challengers Bangalore will face off MS Dhoni’s Chennai Super Kings in Sharjah tomorrow. While both teams are sitting in the top four spots in the league standings, the hunger for the win isn’t going to end for both sides, especially for RCB who were completely dominated by Kolkata Knight Riders in their previous outing. While CSK’s middle order looked fragile with Suresh Raina, Ambati Rayudu MS Dhoni, and Moeen Ali looking off-color, RCB had a terrible outing with both bat and ball.
Here, we will look at key players who can be game-changer for their respective sides in the 35th match between Chennai Super Kings and Royal Challengers Bangalore at Sharjah Cricket Stadium, Sharjah.

Ruturaj Gaikwad – Ruturaj Gaikwad has earned a permanent spot at the top in Chennai Super Kings on the back of multiple impressive performances in the last two seasons.
