Indian Premier League 2022 – Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Chennai Super Kings – 49th Match Prediction

The Indian Premier League 2022 enters its most crucial week, with the 49th game between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Chennai Super Kings deciding both teams’ fates. CSK performed admirably in their most recent game against Sunrisers Hyderabad, keeping their hopes for a place in the next World Cup alive. After losing to the Gujarat Titans in their previous game, RCB’s fortunes have continued to deteriorate.

The Chennai Super Kings have a strong record against the Royal Challengers Bangalore, having won eight of the last ten meetings between the two teams. CSK has struggled this season with Dhoni back at the helm, but we can expect them to show renewed zeal. The Royal Challengers Bangalore has lost their last three games, and it will be interesting to see if they can halt their slide.

The 49th match between Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Chennai Super Kings will take place on May 4th, 2022 at Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune.

Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Chennai Super Kings Team Previews

Royal Challengers Bangalore (Match Odds – 1.85)

Three consecutive defeats have harmed Faf du Plessis’ side’s campaign. After a six-wicket loss to the Gujarat Titans in their last game, they have dropped to fifth place on the points table. After a good start, the team failed to accelerate at the right time and fell at least 15 runs short. They must win this game in order to improve their standing and remain in contention for a playoff spot.

Virat Kohli scored runs in the previous game, which is great news for the team. He must get off to a good start with du Plessis. Glenn Maxwell and Rajat Patidar performed admirably in the middle order, and the team expects them to form partnerships with Dinesh Karthik. Because CSK’s bowling isn’t in great shape, they’d like to see runs from Shahbaz Ahmed, Wanindu Hasaranga, and Mahipal Lomror.

Mohammad Siraj has bowled well in recent games, and he will need to strike early with Maxwell because CSK’s top order was brilliant in the previous game. Harshal Patel has had a difficult season. Hasaranga, along with Ahmed, will play a critical role in the middle overs. In this game, the team will need a better performance from Josh Hazlewood.

Royal Challengers Bangalore Squad

Faf du Plessis (c), Anuj Rawat, Virat Kohli, Dinesh Karthik (wk), Sherfane Rutherford, Shahbaz Ahmed, Wanindu Hasaranga, David Willey, Harshal Patel, Akash Deep, Mohammed Siraj, Siddarth Kaul, Karn Sharma, Chama V Milind, Mahipal Lomror, Finn Allen, Suyash Prabhudessai, Luvnith Sisodia, Aneeshwar Gautam

Predicted XI: Faf du Plessis (c), Rajat Patidar, Virat Kohli, Glenn Maxwell, Mahipal Lomror, Shahbaz Ahmed, Dinesh Karthik (wk), Wanindu Hasaranga, Harshal Patel, Josh Hazlewood, Mohammed Siraj

Chennai Super Kings (Match Odds – 1.92)

MS Dhoni’s replacement as skipper for Ravindra Jadeja ignited a new spark for the defending champions, who cruised to a 13-run victory over the Sunrisers Hyderabad. A playoff berth, on the other hand, is a distant dream for a team that has won only three games this season. They have a strong record against RCB, and Dhoni will look to capitalise on it and win by a large margin.

Devon Conway and Ruturaj Gaikwad set up a 182-run stand in the previous game, giving the team a dream start. A similar start here would do wonders for the team’s confidence. Ambati Rayudu, Ravindra Jadeja, and Robin Uthappa will need to form alliances in the middle order. With Dhoni, Mitchell Santner, and Dwayne Bravo on the way, the side has plenty of batting firepower.

The team’s bowling would need to improve after nearly losing the previous game despite scoring 202 runs. Mukesh Choudhary has looked good, and he will need Simarjeet Singh’s help with the new ball. The addition of Bravo would strengthen this attack. Jadeja has bowled well, and the team would like to see Maheesh Theekshana and Santner bowl tight spells in this game.

Chennai Super Kings Squad

Ruturaj Gaikwad, Devon Conway, Robin Uthappa, Ambati Rayudu, Ravindra Jadeja, Shivam Dube, MS Dhoni (c & wk), Dwayne Bravo, Mitchell Santner, Adam Milne, Tushar Deshpande, Chris Jordan, Rajvardhan Hangargekar, Maheesh Theekshana, Hari Nishanth, N Jagadeesan, Subhranshu Senapati, Prashant Solanki, Mukesh Choudhary, KM Asif, Simarjeet Singh, Bhagath Varma, Moeen Ali, Dwaine Pretorius

Predicted XI: MS Dhoni (c & wk), Ruturaj Gaikwad, Devon Conway, Robin Uthappa, Ambati Rayudu, Ravindra Jadeja, Mitchell Santner, Dwayne Bravo, Simarjeet Singh, Mukesh Choudhary, Maheesh Theekshana

Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Chennai Super Kings Toss Prediction

Despite the fact that the last few games have been won by teams batting first, the wicket has always been a great place to chase scores. In the second half of the game, the batting conditions improve. As a result, the team that wins the toss should not hesitate to bowl first.

To Win the Toss – Royal Challengers Bangalore – 1.85

To Win the Toss – Chennai Super Kings – 1.85

Pitch and Weather Conditions

The Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune is a batsman’s paradise where big scores have been recorded. The wicket has very little for fast bowlers, and batsmen can easily score runs on this track. It’s been a good venue for spinners who want to toss the ball around and put batsmen to the test.

On May 4, the weather in Pune is expected to be warm and humid. The wicket would be flat, and the ball would be expected to hit the ball hard, allowing batsmen to freely play their strokes. Bowlers are likely to struggle on this wicket. On this surface, a total of 190 runs would be a good total.

Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Chennai Super Kings Match Prediction

The Royal Challengers Bangalore has reverted to their old pattern of losing consecutive games. After losing badly in the previous three games, the team needs to get its season back on track. Their batting lineup would have to perform. Chennai Super Kings performed well in their last game but have been inconsistent.

Royal Challengers Bangalore is the favourite to beat Chennai Super Kings at the odds of 1.85.

  • CSK has won eight of the last ten games between the two teams, and RCB would be up against history.
  • Devon Conway and Ruturaj Gaikwad put up a 182-run stand in the previous game for CSK and appear to be in good form.
  • RCB has lost three games in a row, and key players in the team haven’t looked in the best of form.
