Ground News

From 2012-15 teams batting 1st had an advantage. 2016 and 17 editions helped the chasing teams tremendously.

The two games this year has produced lots of runs. The same is expected to continue.

Final Thoughts

Bowling will be the concern for both the sides. The 1st was an high scoring encounter where both teams finished over 200. With the ground numbers too supporting chasing sides, 2nd batting will be of great advantage.

Preview From Other Sources

CricBuzz Preview

After losing two out of their last three games, Chennai Super Kings certainly appear jittery especially with concerns over their bowling not appearing to subside any time soon. They are still second on the points table, are on course to make it to the playoffs once again and they have also been involved in some dramatic finishes, holding their nerve which will keep them in good stead going forward. It might not be the perfect season, winning six and losing three so far, but it’s a position Virat Kohli would have loved Royal Challengers Bangalore to be in.

RCB was brimming with confidence with the skipper himself declaring the squad to be perfect on all fronts (especially the bowling attack) ahead of the season. But they started their campaign with a loss, got savaged a few times, endured a few heartbreaking losses, had to deal with AB de Villiers getting sidelined at a crunch situation and now find themselves needing at least five wins out of their remaining six games.

They have been handed a much-needed boost ahead of the clash against CSK with de Villiers returning to the side but RCB will want more from their finishers. While Mandeep Singh has been pretty consistent, Colin de Grandhomme’s cameo was vital against Mumbai Indians the other night. The duo will have to come good in tandem against an attack that’s been struggling at the death.

CSK injected pace into their bowling lineup by bringing in Lungisani Ngidi and KM Asif but both were taken to the cleaners after looking good earlier with the new ball during the loss to KKR. There will be some concern surrounding Ravindra Jadeja’s role as well. Dhoni continues to trust Jadeja with the bat, evidenced by his promotion ahead of Dwayne Bravo in most of the games but the Saurashtra allrounder is clearly lacking in confidence after finding it hard to come up with vital cameos that he was once renowned for. It’s also taken a hit on his bowling and surprisingly on his fielding as well, after he dropped two catches off successive deliveries against KKR on Thursday.

Quite bizarrely, Karn Sharma, who has come in place of Imran Tahir has been under-bowled. In the four matches he has played so far, Karn has only bowled 5.3 overs in total. Perhaps, introducing a wicket-taking option much earlier can ease CSK’s burden at the death. For now, both sides might look up to their batting might to overpower the other. With the surface in Pune producing big runs so far, another high-scoring south Indian derby is on the cards.

When: May 5, 2018, 4 PM IST – Chennai Super Kings vs Royal Challengers Bangalore

Where: Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium, Pune

What to expect: The heat will test the players with the temperature expected to hover around 40 degree Celsius. Judging by the results so far, the wicket is likely to be a batting beauty.

Team News:

Chennai Super Kings: Unless there is a need to give a break to one or two players owing to the tight schedule, CSK will largely remain unchanged despite the loss.

Predicted XI: Shane Watson, Faf du Plessis, Suresh Raina, Ambati Rayudu, MS Dhoni (C & WK), Ravindra Jadeja, Dwayne Bravo, Karn Sharma, Harbhajan Singh, Lungisani Ngidi, KM Asif

Royal Challengers Bangalore: AB de Villiers will slot in place of Quinton de Kock, who is away for a wedding. But the chances of de Villiers or Brendon McCullum keeping wickets appear to be very less. Parthiv Patel was seen having a long session at the nets and he might come in place of Manan Vohra despite the opener’s 31-ball 45 against MI.

Predicted XI: Parthiv Patel/Manan Vohra, Brendon McCullum, Virat Kohli (C), AB de Villiers, Mandeep Singh, Colin de Grandhomme, Washington Sundar, Tim Southee, Umesh Yadav, Mohammed Siraj, Yuzvendra Chahal

What they said:

“I think Colin did a great job in the last game. I think the 20-odd runs he scored was the reason why we won the game. Really satisfied with how Colin has come into the team. I think Mandeep has been consistent. Finishing plays a part when you don’t do well at the top. We have done well at the top with the experienced four batsmen generally batting well.” – Daniel Vettori, RCB head coach.

Head to Head of teams

CricInfo Preview

Big Picture

Royal Challengers Bangalore could probably afford one more loss. But only if they get very lucky with other results going their way.

They came away from the IPL auction like a tourist with a detailed itinerary: allrounders, check; big-hitters, check; KKR’s bowling attack that knocked them over for 49, double check. But one month in, all they have is a bag full of knock-off merchandise. Five defeats in eight matches with a squad that Virat Kohli thought was the most balanced is, essentially, like being stuck with t-shirts that say Wrong instead of Wrogn, right?

But some innocent bystanders have given them a helpful tip, at least with respect to their next adventure. It is hard to compete with Chennai Super Kings’ batting line-up. So make fools of their bowlers.

Target scores well above par if batting first. Forget about the run-rate and safeguard wickets for the death if chasing. Basically, RCB have to figure out a way to beat a monstrous batting team with virtually the tournament on the line.

It seems karma wants them to learn how everyone that faces RCB feels.

In the news

AB de Villiers has been declared fit after viral fever ruled him out of RCB’s previous two games. Quinton de Kock, however, has flown back to South Africa for a wedding.

Previous meeting

A high-scoring affair when RCB posted 205 and CSK chased it down in a blaze of sixes in Bengaluru. De Villiers made a rip-roaring 68.

Likely XIs

Chennai Super Kings: 1 Shane Watson, 2 Ambati Rayudu, 3 Suresh Raina, 4 MS Dhoni (capt & wk), 5 Ravindra Jadeja, 6 Dwayne Bravo, 7 Harbhajan Singh, 8 Shardul Thakur, 9 Imran Tahir, 10 Lungi Ngidi, 11 KM Asif

De Kock’s absence may see Parthiv Patel getting his first game of the season.

Royal Challengers Bangalore: 1 Manan Vohra/Parthiv Patel (wk), 2 Brendon McCullum 3 Virat Kohli (capt), 4 AB de Villiers, 5 Mandeep Singh, 6 Colin de Grandhomme, 7 Washington Sundar, 8 Tim Southee, 9 Umesh Yadav, 10 Yuzvendra Chahal, 11 Mohammed Siraj

Strategy punt

Imran Tahir has taken 15 wickets in Pune, the most among anyone in the CSK squad, and he has taken out AB de Villiers two times in three IPL innings. This head-to-head can be quite compelling for the viewer as well because the batsman also strikes at 185.7 against the legspinner.

Stats that matter

  • RCB have four wins in five games in Pune, and de Villiers was Man of the Match in three of those games. He has made 211 runs at a strike-rate of 177. Viral fever, begone.
  • CSK have rarely had a phenomenal bowling line-up. But they mask that problem with their spinners and Dhoni’s ability to use them. In each of their eight years, their economy rate had always hovered around 7 and strike rate around 25. In 2018, those numbers have risen to 8.49 and 34.50.
  • Before Tim Southee was brought in to the XI, RCB were conceding a six every six deliveries in the death. Now, that figure is a far more respectable 18.3.
  • Dhoni has scored 329 runs at a strike-rate of 169.6. That’s his best tally after nine matches in any season of IPL.

Fantasy pick

Ambati Rayudu. He’s the highest scorer of the IPL this season with six scores of 30-plus in nine innings. He’s also been hitting at a strike-rate of 153 with 56 hits to and over the boundary.

Quotes

“The last four days have been a blur I have been suffering from severe viral flu, one of the most debilitating illnesses I have ever experienced. Aside from one visit to the hospital, I have barely left my hotel room. Sleep has been almost impossible, and the migraine headaches have been extreme.”
AB de Villiers wrote in a column for Times of India
