RCB vs CSK: Match Preview & Dream 11 Fantasy Tips | IPL 2019

RCB vs CSK Match Preview – The Chinnaswamy Stadium is all set to host another game of the world’s biggest domestic league here on Sunday night.

The 39th match of IPL 2019 will be played between Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and Chennai Super Kings (CSK) tonight at 08:00 PM local time.

Virat Kohli quoted after winning the previous match against KKR that they would make all possible efforts to win all of their respective matches of the tournament, so as to keep their chances alive to qualify for the playoffs.

On the other end, the MS Dhoni-led Chennai Super Kings has been absolutely phenomenal in this season of IPL so far, and with “Captain Cool” returning to the side, after missing the last game, the strength of CSK gets simply double.

Last time when both these team faced each other was the first match of IPL 2019, and RCB’s performance in that game was completely disappointing. The team got all-out at the score of 70 and CSK chased it quite comfortably.

Now, with RCB getting back on the winning track, it’ll be very interesting to see, how both the teams tackle each other’s strategies to get themselves up in the points table.

Here are the match preview, Dream 11 fantasy league teams, pitch report, weather conditions, our power picks, and all the details of today’s match.

In his last 7 matches against RCB in IPL, Rayudu scored 335 runs at an average of 67.90 (including 3 half centuries), making him a must-have player in small leagues.

Our Advice:

Due to credit issues, it will be tough to select all the big players in one team. If you want to take a risk, pick Shane Watson and make him captain in grand leagues.

Our Match Prediction:

CSK has been in tremendous form in the tournament so far, and with MS Dhoni returning to the side, we expect CSK to win tonight’s game against the Royal Challengers Bangalore.
