The previous meeting between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Chennai Super Kings in the ongoing season of IPL 2019 set the template of a disastrous start for Virat Kohli‘s men as they went on to lose their first six matches.

They were shot out for a mere 70 in the season opener at Cheapuk in Chennai. However, somehow, they have managed to keep themselves mathematically relevant in race of IPL playoffs. They have won just two of their nine matches so far and are still at the bottom of the pile.

They are meeting CSK again, this time at home. Will the second meeting between the two teams result in change of fortunes for RCB?
