Why RCB vs CSK is must-win for both teams?

  • After six losses in nine games, CSK cannot afford any more defeats.
  • CSK will have to win the next five matches to score 10 points and hope other results go their way to be in contention with 16 points.
  • For RCB, who are on a three-match losing streak, it is about bouncing back and keep the campaign on track.
  • With four wins in as many games, RCB can seal the deal as they have 10 points.
  • A loss will mean, RCB will have to compete with CSK, DC, PBKS for the fourth spot.

Virat Kohli vs MS Dhoni: But it is also a battle between the two greats of the game. Virat Kohli is on a comeback trail as a player after suffering the biggest dip in form in his career. Kohli was dismissed for two consecutive golden ducks before managing another single-digit score. It was only in the last match against Gujarat Titans when he scored a half-century after 14 matches.

For MS Dhoni, it is about proving that CSK can bounce back even with an injury crisis. It was Ruturaj Gaikwad and Devon Conway who fired in the last match and Dhoni will hope his batsmen will deliver the goods as the bowling department is inexperienced.

Royal Challengers Bangalore (6th, 10 Points): Faf du Plessis’ Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) have registered 5 wins in 10 matches. However, the three-time finalists have hit a rut with three consecutive losses, the latest coming in the last over against Gujarat Titans. The franchise have made life difficult for themselves and will hope that result go their way in the latter half of the tournament.

  • RCB need to win at least 3 matches out of 4 to qualify.
  • But the three wins should be with good margins as RCB have a negative Net Run Rate of -0.558.
  • Two wins may not be enough for RCB as every loss will decrease the NRR further.
  • RCB Remaining Matches: CSK, SRH, PBKS, GT

  • CSK need to win all their remaining matches to qualify for Playoffs.
  • Even with 16 points, CSK’s way could be tough and win against MI and GT will be crucial.
  • CSK Remaining Matches: RCB, DC, MI, GT, RR
