IPL 2022: RCB vs CSK Dream11 Prediction: The troops of Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and Chennai Super Kings (CSK) will be up against each other in match number 49 of the Tata Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 on 04th May in the Maharashtra Cricket Association International Stadium, Pune.

IPL 2022: RCB vs CSK Match Preview:

Another exciting clash for the fans is on the cards as RCB and CSK lock horns on May 4th. Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) are on a three-match losing streak currently. The franchise recently bowed down against Gujarat Titans in the Brabourne Stadium.

Notably, Virat Kohli returned to his form as he scored a half-century against Gujarat Titans. Virat’s form will boost the confidence of the franchise and at the same time, it will be a threat to the Chennai Super Kings. 

The biggest concern for RCB would be consistency. Skipper Faf has scored runs, but not consistently. Middle-order hasn’t been consistent either. Glenn Maxwell has looked pale this season. 

On the other side, Chennai Super Kings registered their third win of the season, defeating Sunrisers Hyderabad in a high scoring contest. 

Opener Ruturaj Gaikwad and Devon Conway were absolutely ruthless and stitched a record partnership of 182 runs before the first wicket. Gaikwad was dismissed one shy of his well deserved century while Devon Conway remained unbeaten at 85. 

Mukesh Chaudhary has been the biggest positive for CSK this season. The speedster has filled the big shoes of Deepak Chahar and has scalped wickets more often than not. He is also the second-highest ranked CSK bowler in the purple cap with 11 scalps in eight matches.

IPL 2022: RCB vs CSK Pitch Report:

Chennai muscled 202 runs in the MCA Pune a couple of nights ago, but I doubt whether the same surface will be used again in the match between RCB and CSK or not. In case the same surface is used, it’s going to be a cracker of the game. Both, CSK and RCB have all the powers in the world to produce an absolute run-fest. 

If other surfaces are used, the slowness of the tracks might hamper run-scoring. As the IPL 2022 progressed, we have seen pitches shifting to a slower side and run-scoring hasn’t been that easy.
