Chennai Super Kings vs Royal Challengers Bangalore Preview

Chennai Super Kings will take on Royal Challengers Bangalore in match 22 of the Indian T20 League. CSK have been very ordinary in the tournament, losing all their games so far. They have looked a pale shadow of the team that won the tournament last year, despite retaining the core. Meanwhile, RCB has been brilliant under Faf du Plessis, winning three of the four games.

Chennai Super Kings

We feel that CSK is playing with their best XI and despite losing four games, will play with the same team.

Top Order

Robin Uthappa and Ruturaj Gaikwad will open the innings, followed by Moeen Ali. Gaikwad has been disappointing and will be keen to live up to the expectations. Uthappa too will be eager to convert their starts.


Ambati Rayudu, MS Dhoni will be the batters to follow. Both players have been disappointing so far.


Shivam Dube, Ravindra Jadeja and Dwayne Bravo will be the all-rounders. Dube has been good with the bat but hasn't done much with the ball. Jadeja too has been ordinary, so has Bravo.


Chris Jordan, Maheesh Theekshana and Mukesh Chaudhary comprise the bowling attack. The attack does look bleak and players will have to punch above their weight to make an impact

CSK Key Batsman

  • Ruturaj Gaikwad - Gaikwad was the star for CSK last season but has not yet fired in this season. Runs from him is a must for CSK.
  • Ambati Rayudu - Rayudu is an IPL veteran and has done well for CSK in recent years. However, this season he has been very poor. CSK need runs from him.
  • Moeen Ali - Moeen is a game-changer with the bat. At no 3, he is responsible for providing steady momentum to the innings. He will be keen to do the same in the next game.

CSK Top Batsman Stats

Batter Matches Runs Average Strike Rate 50/100
Ruturaj Gaikwad 26 857 19.88 129.85 7/1
Ambati Rayudu 179 3998 28.97 126.64 21/1
Moeen Ali 37 749 23.41 145.72 4/0

CSK Key Bowlers

  • Dwayne Bravo - The leading wickettaker in the IPL history will have to take charge of the bowling attack in the middle and death overs. He is very clever with his variations and is not an easy bowler to hit away.
  • Chris Jordan - Jordan too is a bowler who has plenty of variations up his sleeves. CSK will need him to be in his elements in the next game and help SRH limit to a low score.
  • Maheesh Theekshana - He had a wicketless outing in the last game but he has done well for Sri Lanka and in T20 tournaments of late. He is expected to have a good game.

Chris Jordan 26 27 27.96 9.04 4/11
DJ Bravo 155 173 24.14 8.37 4/22

CSK Probable Playing 11

Robin Uthappa, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Moeen Ali, Ambati Rayudu, Ravindra Jadeja (c), Shivam Dube, MS Dhoni (wk), Dwayne Bravo, Chris Jordan, Maheesh Theekshana, Mukesh Choudhary

Royal Challengers Bangalore

A few changes are expected in the RCB camp. Harshal Patel left the bio bubble due to the demise of his sister and will need to quarantine for three days so he won't be available. Josh Hazlewood is available for selection and should be back in the team.

Top Order

Faf du Plessis and Anuj Rawat will open the innings. Rawat played a brilliant knock off 66 in the last game, while Du Plessis has also looked good. Virat Kohli will follow them.

Middle Order

Glenn Maxwell and Dinesh Karthik are two great batters in the middle orders. Both can win games on their own and are in good form.


Shahbaz Ahmed and Wanindu Hasaranga will be the all-rounders. Ahmed has already won a game for RCB with the bat, while Hasaranga has been brilliant with the ball.


Mohammed Siraj and Akash Deep are certain to play. The team will also likely bring in Josh Hazlewood in place of David Willey. In place of Harshal Patel, they can play Siddharth Kaul.

RCB Key Batters

  • Virat Kohli - Kohli has got two good scores of 40+ in the tournament and one would feel that he is due for a big one.
  • Glenn Maxwell - Maxwell was the star for RCB last season and he will be keen to deliver similar performances this season as well.
  • Faf du Plessis - Du Plessis has not scored many after a blazing knock in the first game. He too will be keen to find his lost tough against Hyderabad.

RCB Top Batsman Stats

Batter Matches Runs Average Strike Rate 50/100
Virat Kohli 211 6389 37.36 130.04 42/5
Faf du Plessis 104 3073 34.92 131.10 23/0
Glenn Maxwell 98 2026 25.32 152.22 12

RCB Key Bowlers

  • Josh Hazlewood - Hazlewood has evolved as a top all-format bowler and will be keen to start the IPL 2022 with a match-winning performance.
  • Akash Deep - Akash Deep has been good with the new ball and has taken a few wickets. He has swung the ball which can cause some trouble for the CSK batters.
  • Wanindu Hasaranga - Hasaranga has started the tournament with the ball with a bang and has been a thorn in the flesh of all oppositions. He will be eyeing another match-winning performance.

RCB Top Bowlers Stats

Josh Hazlewood 12 12 29.75 7.93 3/24
Wanindu Hasaranga 6 8 22.50 8.18 4/20
