The Chennai Super Kings (CSK) are one of the teams who are clear of the mid-table scramble for a spot in the top four. Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) will hoping for a win against a very strong CSK side. Both teams won their previous matches, and both will be looking to defeat their opponent in the Indian Premier League (IPL).

Smith and McCullum are expected to maintain their good form. For RCB, Virat Kohli, Yuvraj Singh and Parthiv Patel are all expected to do well. Kohli is due for a big score, and it is likely that he will provide one today.
