IPL 2021 RCB vs CSK Preview: Star-studded Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) would look to shrug off the crushing defeat in the previous outing and get their mojo back when they take on Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s resilient Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in an 2021 Indian Premier League (IPL 2021) match on Friday. While RCB will look to start afresh, CSK got a confidence-boosting 20-run win against defending champions Mumbai Indians on Sunday night.
It is imperative for RCB to improve upon their batting as they seek to keep their place in the top half of the points table. It will be important that the openers — Devdutt Padikkal (217 runs) and skipper Virat Kohli (203 runs) — provide a solid start. But the opening duo would also need support from the middle-order, which crumbled against Kolkata Knight Riders. [FULL PREVIEW]
