The 19th match of IPL-2021 is to be played between Chennai Super Kings and Royal Challengers Bangalore.
IPL 2021: Virat Kohli and Mahendra Singh Dhoni (MS Dhoni) will face face-to-face in the 19th match of the 14th season of the Indian Premier League. The match is to be played at Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium which will start at 3:30 pm. On one side there is the team of RCB which has not lost any match in the season so far, on the other side it is CSK which has won 3 matches in a row.
On the one hand, where RCB, captained by Virat Kohli, has not lost a single match in the season, on the other side, Dhoni’s team CSK which is running on the track of victory. RCB have won all their four matches so far, while CSK has won 3 out of 4 matches. CSK lost their first match of the season but won three matches in a row thereafter. Now, where Virat’s goal is to record a fifth consecutive win, then Dhoni’s team CSK will come down with the aim of registering their fourth consecutive win. Rajasthan Royals had won 5 matches in a row in 2015 and now RCB is also performing like that.
It is difficult to change the playing-XI for this match. Chennai’s young opener Rituraj Gaikwad and RCB’s young batsman Devdutt Padikkal are also making a comeback. In such a situation, any change in the playing-XI on the pitch of Wankhede, which is considered better for batting, seems difficult.Expected Playing – XI
