Bangalore: Apr 24, 2012

 

Royal Challengers Bangalore won the toss and stand-in captain Virat Kohli put Chennai Super Kings into bat in their Indian Premier League (IPL) 2012 match at Bangalore on Wednesday.

 

Both RCB and CSK have hit form after a slow start to the tournament. While RCB has registered three back-to-back wins after a few defeats, CSK will be riding high on confidence following victories over Pune Warriors India and Rajsathan Royals in their last two matches.

 

And the hosts, who would be desperate after the last-over loss to CSK in the away match, have the ammunition to dismantle the visitors’ fort at home conditions.

 

RCB, who lost to CSK and Rajasthan Royals in a row, have improved a lot as the tournament progressed, winning three games on the trot and would be hoping to continue their unbeaten stretch.

 

Teams:

 

RCB: Tillakaratne Dilshan, Chris Gayle, Mayank Agarwal, Virat Kohli (c), AB de Villiers (c & wk), Saurabh Tiwary, Andrew McDonald, Vinay Kumar, Zaheer Khan, Harshal Patel, KP Appanna

 

CSK: Subramanium Badrinath, Faf du Plessis, Suresh Raina, Mahendra Singh Dhoni (c & wk), Ravindra Jadeja, Dwayne Bravo, Wriddhiman Saha, Ravichandran Ashwin, Nuwan Kulasekara, Yo Mahesh, Albie Morkel
