CSK vs RCB Dream11 Prediction: The 19th match of the 14th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2021) will be played between Chennai Super Kings and Royal Challengers Bangalore at Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai on Sunday, April 25, 2021.
CSK vs RCB Match Preview
The Royal Challengers Bangalore will face Chennai Super Kings in the 19th match of the Indian Premier League 2021.
The Virat Kohli-led side have emerged to be the team to beat this year and have showcased a dominant brand of cricket so far. RCB are yet to face their maiden loss in the tournament and they are currently at the top spot on the points table with four wins in four games. The team will be keen to retain their spot at the top of the IPL 2021 standings with a comprehensive win over the strongest side CSK on Sunday.
After facing an embarrassing 7-wicket loss against the Delhi Capitals in their opening contest of the season, the Chennai Super Kings made a thumping comeback by clinching three back to back wins in the tournament. Their bowling unit performed exceptionally well against all the teams they faced till date. Deepak Chahar is the pick of the bowlers for MS Dhoni and co. as he is a regular wicket-taker for CSK.
Although both teams are well-matched on paper, Chennai Super Kings will hold the edge in the crucial clash, owing to their experience. But Virat Kohli and co. have shown enough promise in the IPL 2021 so far and should keep the three-time champions Chennai Super Kings on their toes.
