At the M.A. Chidambaram Stadium in Bengaluru, RCB will host CSK in the Indian Premier League 2023 season on a Monday evening. Royal Challengers Bangalore is going through a difficult phase in their current IPL campaign as they have been defeated helplessly by a couple of teams. Meanwhile, CSK hasn’t been able to put together more wins than losses on the points table as they got beaten by GT and RR, the two best teams in the IPL since 2022. With a couple of important points at stake, RCB will be looking forward to putting in a better performance at home and beating their near rivals CSK in the process.

M. Chinnaswamy Stadium is known to be a batter’s paradise where they can play strokes through the line of the ball. It’s been the case in IPL 2023 as we have already seen a 200+ game at this venue. For that reason, both RCB and CSK batting lineups will be very confident to score big runs and ensure that their team is on the winning side at the end of the match.
Royal Challengers Bangalore
Royal Challengers Bangalore's batting line-up likes to play at the Chinnaswamy Stadium as the pitches here give them the opportunity to produce big scores consistently. Virat Kohli and captain Faf Du Plessis have put together big opening stands at home for RCB to set the ball rolling. But their middle order is yet to have a proper hit in this IPL, which has to be a worry for the team management. The RCB bowlers have yet to put in a strong performance as a unit, but still, the good form of Mohammed Siraj and Karn Sharma is a confidence booster for the side.

Chennai Super Kings
Chennai Super Kings have been putting up big totals in the IPL 2023 season especially because of the quality starts provided by Ruturaj Gaikwad and Devon Conway. Shivam Dube and Ambati Rayudu are among the runs for CSK, which has elevated their middle order in the absence of the big overseas stars. MS Dhoni is smashing fours and sixes for fun these days, which has been the biggest talking point not just among Chennai fans but the IPL fans as well. In the bowling department, Maheesh Theekshana has made a very good return for CSK and bolstered their lineup immensely.

RCB vs CSK Fantasy Team:
RCB are playing on their home patch but still CSK will have the advantage over them. It’s because the record for Royal Challengers Bangalore at M.A. Chinnaswamy Stadium has been very ordinary and Chennai Super Kings have played a big part in it over the years.
