The 2019 edition of the Indian Premier League will get underway when Chennai Super Kings take on Royal Challengers Bangalore at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai on Saturday evening. This match can be referred to as a Clash of the Titans as players like AB de Villiers, Shane Watson, Dwayne Bravo and Faf du Plesis will be pitted against one another. The list doesn't stop there as present and former Indian skippers Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni will lead their sides RCB and CSK respectively.
In 23 head to head matches, CSK have been victorious 15 times whereas RCB have only won on seven occasions. If the record at Chepauk is considered, CSK have the upper hand with six victories out of the seven matches they have played here against RCB. So that gives the home team a huge mental edge whereas RCB will need to bring their best game to the fore in this match.
Weather and Pitch conditions: Clear Skies throughout day and night. The pitch at Chepauk is generally on the drier side. So, spinners will come into play. Pacers with variations will be very handy. A total of 150 is par in the first innings.
