RCB despite starting the season on a good note have lost their last 3 consecutive matches and are in deep pressure to perform well in remaining games to book a spot in IPL 2022 playoffs. CSK on the other hand, despite being the defending champions haven't performed up to their expectation and for them to qualify for playoffs they should hope to win all their remaining five games in a row under MS Dhoni's captaincy.
Last time when CSK and RCB faced each other in IPL, CSK ended up winning the match by 23 runs with the help of terrific innings from Shivam Dube and Robin Uthappa. Once again a high scoring contest can be expected between these two sides in Pune and it will be very interesting to see as who will come out on top in this match.
