Pitch and Weather Report

For a change, a team batting first won the game last time around at the Chinnaswamy Stadium, RCB defended a total against Delhi Capitals easily. But that was an afternoon game while the match will be played under the lights on Monday. Conditions will be typical yet again and teams should back themselves to chase down any kind of score.

It is expected to be a pleasant evening in Bengaluru today with things cooling down after 7 PM. There is no chance of rain at all even as temperature will hover in the late 20s during the match.


Best Batter of the Match: Moeen Ali

Moeen Ali takes pride in putting his best foot forward every time he takes on the field. But he wasn't at his best against RR dropping catches, missing run-out chances and getting out for a low score. He will definitely look to make amends in this game and take the attack to the RCB bowlers on a batting friendly surface.

Best Bowler of the Match: Maheesh Theekshana

Maheesh Theekshana picked up seven wickets in two matches he played against RCB last year. He returned with the figures of 4/33 and 3/27 playing an important role especially in the middle overs. This makes him a key player for CSK in this encounter.

Who will win the Match: Chennai Super Kings (CSK)
