Dream XI Team RCB vs CSK IPL 2019 – Cricket Predictions Tips For Todays IPL Match Bangalore vs Chennai at Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bangalore: After clinching a morale-boosting win against the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) will look to continue with the momentum and keep their slim chances of making it to the playoffs alive when they take on Chennai Super Kings (CSK) at the Chinnaswamy Stadium on Sunday. RCB had to face an embarrassing seven-wicket defeat against CSK in the first game of the IPL 2019. Their batting had failed miserably as they were bundled out for mere 70 runs on a slow, turning wicket of the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai.
Virat Kohli scored his first century of this IPL during RCB’s narrow 10-run victory against KKR in their last game and RCB fans would be hoping that the skipper continues with his ruthless batting form against CSK. RCB, languishing at the bottom of the table with just four points from nine games, would be aware of the fact that it won’t be easy for them to over the MS Dhoni-led side, even while playing at their home ground and having their star batsman in form.
On the other hand, Chennai, who were comfortably beaten by the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in the last encounter, would be desperate to make amends in their game.
Regular skipper MS Dhoni had to sit out of the SRH game because of back spasms and in his absence, Suresh Raina had to take up the captaincy role. Dhoni’s absence, both while batting and defending a small target of 132, was felt during the SRH game. They would also hope that the 37-year-old is fit for the game and takes on the field.
Chennai, still sitting pretty at the points table with 14 points from nine games, would aim for victory against RCB and confirm their berth in the play-offs.

Batsmen: Kohli coming fresh off a ton is an easy pick and Mr. IPL Suresh Raina because of the immense experience of Indian wickets he brings to the plate. It becomes tricky with AB De Villiers as he missed out the last match. One can gamble and go for him as he is a big player and with RCB needing to win all their matches he may be risked. An alternate to ABD would be Faf Du Plessis. Watson has the experience and you could ick him, on song he is a privilege to watch.
Wicketkeeper: Here MS Dhoni in all probability would comeback and once he is fit he will fit into any Dream11.
All-Rounders: Moeen Ali showed he is dangerous with the bat and can roll his arms over. He can also be looked at as a batsman but he bowls as well. He along with Ravindra Jadeja, Dwayne Bravo can be the other two all-rounders.
Bowlers: Yuzvendra Chahal over Imran Tahir purely because of the quality he possesses. Dale Steyn because of the experience and the wicket-taking ability with the new ball. Saini is good in tandem with Steyn, the legend. Saini is raw and fast and could win matches on his day.
