The Chennai Super Kings take on the Royal Challengers Bangalore in Dubai in the 2020 Indian Premier League on Saturday afternoon. The Super Kings will be desperate for victory while the Royal Challengers will want to get back to winning ways. 

Plenty of runs should be on after with both teams offering some world class options.

Chennai Super Kings Form


The Chennai Super Kings have only managed two victories from their opening six matches after a bright start to the competition. They lost their last match in Abu Dhabi against the Kolkata Knight Riders by 10 runs.

The Knight Riders scored 167 runs batting first and while Shane Watson, Faf du Plessis and Ambati Rayudu got them off to a fine start, the middle order imploded and failed to take the team home.

Last season’s Indian Premier League leading wicket-taker, Imran Tahir has yet to get a game for the Super Kings and this may just be his opportunity. The three-time winners need to do something drastic if they are to be competitive as we head towards the halfway point of the competition.

Royal Challengers Bangalore Form


The Royal Challengers Bangalore have won three of their five matches thus far but imploded in their last outing against the Delhi Capitals.

The Challengers bowlers allowed the Capitals to score 196 runs batting first in Dubai, an above average score for the ground thus far. In pursuit of that score the Royal Challengers failed miserably with only Virat Kohli scoring 43 runs – no one else got past 13 runs as they lost by 59 runs.

Regardless of that performance, AB de Villiers is among the top run-scorers in the 2020 Indian Premier League and Kohli has now scored runs in his last two matches.
