IPL 2020: CSK VS RCB, MATCH 25, PREDICTED PLAYING XI AND ANALYSIS
Match: 7:30 PM
Toss: 7:00 pm
Venue: Dubai International cricket stadium
Analysis: Despite the fact that CSK have not been inspiring yet, the opening duo of Watson-Du Plessis can be deadly at times. Also, Ambati, who has been a great figure for the Yellow Army, might be called for the top-order. Dhoni himself will be trying to regain the lost momentum. Also, Jadeja and Bravo will be stabling at the finish. Their bowlers, especially Piyush, are going pretty fine, and can CSK can have an upper hand with Chahar, Hazlewood.
RCB, having Finch and Pattikal, can form a deadly opening combination. The top four batsmen including Kohli and De Villiers can make the side stable scoring an ideal. The bowling likes of Chahal, Saini, and Zampa are far more deadly trio than any other franchise currently. The all-rounder Sundar is nevertheless.
