Considering the lineups, both sides are almost evenly matched. However, the unbeatable record of the CSK at the Indian Premier League makes a very tall order for opponents to defeat them.

  • Led by the “captain cool” MS Dhoni, the CSK has had an illustrious career in the IPL with major credit to his leadership skills.
  • Virat Kohli-led RCB has had their fair share of ups and downs in the last few years but Kohli has the capability to carry his team when the matches get intense.
  • South African Batsman AB de Villiers continues his IPL journey along with the RCB team this season. Fans are expecting to see some power-packed performances with raining fours and sixes from the right-handed batsman.
  • The squad of RCB is packed with some of the most gifted batsmen of the current generation. To be precise, a partnership that is strong between Kohli and AB de Villiers has the potential to put the CSK in panic mode in future Chennai Super Kings vs Royal Challengers Bangalore team clashes.
  • For the 2020 season, RCB is looking to further improve as they picked up all-rounder Pavan Deshpande for some easy bucks. His all-round skills will be helpful during RCB vs CSK matches.
  • CSK bowlers Harbhajan Singh, Imran Tahir, and Shardul Thakur will look to dismantle the RCB unit with some really quick wickets. But the RCB side is also prepared with bowlers like Kane Richardson, Dale Steyn, Yuzvendra Chahal, and Mohammed Siraj on board.

So, it's worth waiting for some grand totals and a nail-biting finish. The win is wide open to any team, be it CSK or RCB, that displays absolute brilliance as there is no room for errors here.
