Chennai Super Kings got off to a bad start and were virtually 7 for 4, but they made a stunning comeback to defeat Mumbai Indians. They will face the Royal Challengers Bangalore in the next match of the IPL 2021, which will be held in Sharjah.
The previous encounter between RCB and KKR was a disaster. It suffered its worst defeat in terms of the amount of balls remaining and will undoubtedly want to assess its team’s balance.
In IPL 2020, Sharjah was a six-hitting heaven, with some absolutely absurd scores being set and chased down. With a lot of interest in this match, bettors will want to look at the Total Sixes, Total Runs, and To Hit A Six betting markets. RCB versus CSK is usually a tight encounter between two South Indian behemoths with fervent fan bases. The match will take place on September 24, 2021, at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium in Sharjah.

Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Chennai Super Kings Team Previews
With their performance in the previous encounter, RCB would have been heartbroken. It has now lost its last six matches in the UAE, all of which have come when it has batted first. Virat Kohli’s form is a major issue, as his problems against the new ball will almost certainly be exploited once more.
RCB also does not have a number three to fall back on. We didn’t believe KS Bharat had much of an impression in his previous match, and he merely seemed to be prolonging the inning. The same was true with Sachin Baby.
Batting threats include AB de Villiers, Glenn Maxwell, Wanindu Hasaranga, and Kyle Jamieson. On a small field like Sharjah, you never want to rule out de Villiers and Maxwell, but both have been away of top-flight cricket for a long and may need some time to get back into the swing of things.
In the last encounter, RCB did not have enough runs to defend, and its performance with the ball should not be regarded too seriously. Hasaranga, Jamieson, Siraj, Chahal, and Patel should be able to improve their performances in the next games.

Devdutt Padikkal, Virat Kohli (c), AB de Villiers, Srikar Bharat, Mohammed Azharuddeen, Sachin Baby, Rajat Patidar, Daniel Christian, Glenn Maxwell, Harshal Patel, Kyle Jamieson, Pavan Deshpande, Shahbaz Ahmed, Washington Sundar, Daniel Sams, Mohammed Siraj, Navdeep Saini, Suyash Prabhudessai, Yuzvendra Chahal, Finn Allen, Scott Kuggeleijn
Predicted XI: Virat Kohli (c), Devdutt Padikkal, KS Bharat (wk), AB de Villiers, Glenn Maxwell, Tim David/Sachin Baby, Wanindu Hasaranga, Harshal Patel, Yuzvendra Chahal, Mohammed Siraj and Kyle Jamieson/Navdeep Saini
CSK had a batting collapse against fast bowlers but recovered admirably owing to Ruturaj Gaikwad’s brilliance. In the previous match, his inning of 88 not out proved decisive.
CSK has managed to change things around and be sufficiently aggressive after a poor season in IPL 2020 in which their batting was found to be too old-fashioned. Ambati Rayadu’s injury does not appear to be serious, and he is expected to play in the next match.
CSK has a strong batting lineup with Faf du Plessis, Moeen Ali, Ravindra Jadeja, and Dwayne Bravo in fine form. Suresh Raina and MS Dhoni are IPL legends, but they haven’t been at their best in a long time. For the time being, we believe you should avoid betting on such players.
Dhoni exploited bowling match-ups extremely wisely; therefore he employed Meoeen Ali more against left-handers than Jadeja. RCB is a right-hander-heavy team, thus Ravindra Jadeja may get more action in the upcoming game. Deepak Chahar is one of the most successful powerplay bowlers, and Josh Hazelwood has excelled in the T20 format.
CSK is now at the top of the league rankings and has the momentum to win again.

Predicted XI: Faf du Plessis, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Moeen Ali, Suresh Raina, MS Dhoni (c & wk), Ambati Rayudu, Sam Curran, Dwayne Bravo, Deepak Chahar, Shardul Thakur and Ravindra Jadeja

Pitch and Weather Conditions

Sharjah is a six-hitting heaven due to its tiny borders. In Sharjah, there were more sixes per ball hit than at any other venue in the IPL 2020. There is no reason why this should not happen again.
A high-scoring encounter appears to be on the cards.
Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Chennai Super Kings Match Prediction
Playing at a location like Sharjah allows for a single player to have a significant impact and affect the dynamics of the game. However, given the present condition of the two teams and how they have begun the second leg of the IPL 2021, CSK is the team to favor.
