In this match played at RCB’s home ground Chinnaswamy Stadium, the target of both the teams will be to win the match. Both the teams have strong playing XI. However, CSK star player Sisanda Magala has been ruled out of the game

Magala made his IPL debut for Chennai Super Kings against Mumbai Indians in the 12th match of the tournament and bowled brilliantly. He went on to play another match. However, he is not playing the high-voltage game between the Southern rivals because he is injured.

“The toss matters because it is a venue where it is difficult to contain the batsmen in the second innings. And the dew should not be forgotten. I think what is important is not looking ahead, maybe 180-200 is a par score But we need to keep up.” Re-evaluating every 3-4 overs where we stand and what a good total would be. This is a better way to approach than just keeping the total in mind. One change – Magala is injured and Pathirana comes in,” said MS Dhoni during the toss.
