Both RCB and CSK have been doing pretty well in this IPL 2021 but RCB had a major slump in their previous game against KKR as they lost that game by a heavy margin. Last time when these two teams met in IPL 2021, Ravindra Jadeja's all-round effort ensured CSK defeated RCB in a very convincing manner and agai,n CSK would start as favourites in this game looking at the current form of both sides.
A high scoring contest could be expected as the game is happening in Sharjah and hard-hitters like Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers and Glenn Maxwell are expected to do well for RCB while CSK's batting depth looks very solid with Deepak Chahar playing as number 10 batter for them.
