High-flying RCB have claimed back-to-back victories while KKR suffered an inexplicable batting collapse against MI, which led to surprising 10-run defeat. KKR might be tempted to bring in Kuldeep Yadav while Andre Russell's not so great form with the bat is a worry for the KKR management as batting becomes very tough during the death overs at Chennai venue. But Russell has a monumental record against Bangalore and he will be eager to make amends for his lackluster batting performances so far. RCB, on the other hand will be hoping that middle-order batsmen Glenn Maxwell and AB de Villiers continue their sparkling form.
