CSK vs RCB Pitch Report & Weather Conditions
CSK played their last match at the Dr. DY Patil Sports Academy ground but their batsmen and bowlers were not able to take advantage of the pitch. There was not any dew in that match because it was a day match. But as this upcoming match between CSK vs RCB is a night fixture so dew is likely to come.
In the last few games played at Dr. DY Patil Sports Academy, the team batting second emerged as the winner, so the team winning the toss will go for the chase.
CSK Team Preview
The change of captain just before the start of the tournament didn’t work at all for Chennai Super Kings as they are completely looking off the track with four losses in the four matches played so far. Under the captaincy of Ravindra Jadeja, the team is looking not at all like the champions of last year’s tournament.
Their top-order batsmen Robin Uthappa, Ruturaj Gaikwad, and Ambati Rayudu didn’t fire in the last match with SRH. The performance of these batsmen is a major concern for the team and they have to come on top in this upcoming match against RCB.
We have witnessed some the good innings from Moeen Ali in IPL 2022 so far. He was the top scorer for SRH in the last match and he will be the frontline batsman for CSK in a match against RCB also. Apart from him, other batsmen have to come out to the rescue of CSK in IPL 2022.
It’s not only the batting of CSK that is going through tough conditions, but the bowling also has been average and that was visible in the last match against SRH also, when the bowlers were able to take only 2 wickets while defending the target of 154 runs.
If CSK has to taste their first victory of IPL 2022, then bowlers Dwayne Bravo, Maheesh Theekshana, and Ravindra Jadeja have to ball reasonably well in this upcoming match against RCB.
RCB Team Preview
Royal Challengers Bangalore are truly doing remarkable work in all departments so far in the tournament. So far they have lost just 2 points in the four matches played in IPL 2022 when they were defeated by PBKS in their first match. RCB has not looked back since that defeat and has made very less mistakes.
Opener Anuj Rawat played a match-winning knock of 66 in the last match against MI and the team would want him to step up again with the bat in this upcoming match against CSK.
Virat Kohli’s innings of 48 runs came at the very right time and his knock brought a little relief not only for himself but also for the team.
Faf du Plessis was not able to do enough with the bat in the last match but he can outclass the bowling attack of CSK if he finds his touch again.
Harshal Patel is likely to miss this match against CSK because of some family problems. In his absence, Mohammed Siraj and Wanindu Hasaranga will have an ample amount of work to do with the ball.
CSK Playing 11

CSK vs RCB Winner Prediction
With the CSK team struggling with both bat and ball in IPL 2022 they are looking pretty much underdogs in this match. Few batsmen like Moeen Ali have done a decent job for CSK but most of the other batsmen are a complete failure in the four matches played so far.
On the other hand team, RCB has been a much better team in the tournament. Their batsmen and bowlers have handled the pressure very well in the tournament so far and are likely to easily appear on top of CSK in the upcoming match.
So we predict RCB to win this match against CSK.
