Both Chennai Super Kings and Royal Challengers Bangalore will bid to get back to winning ways when they meet in the 2020 Indian Premier League in Dubai. Chennai Super Kings started the tournament by beating Mumbai Indians but they have won just once in five matches since. A stunning ten-wicket win against Kings XI Punjab looked to be getting them back on track, but they failed to chase 168 to beat Kolkata last time out to fall to another defeat.
Royal Challengers Bangalore are two points ahead of the Super Kings, with three wins so far, but they slipped to a second defeat last time out when they limped to beat Delhi Capitals. Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni will be determined to get on top of each other and avoid a big loss as that could prove to be costly. For MS Dhoni, yet another loss could see his playoff hopes dashed.
Date: 10th October 2020
Venue: Dubai International Cricket Stadium, Dubai, UAE
Time: 7:30 PM (IST)
Pitch and Conditions:
The sides chasing have struggled at this venue and only on one occasion, the chasing side was successful thus far. In the last two matches, teams batting first have put up big totals and registered wins by big margins here. The batsmen should be able to continue to dominate and any team that fails to maximize its overs is going to struggle to defend here. A score of around 180 seems to be par for the surface.
The team that wins the toss is going to want to bat first. That has been the success mantra at Dubai in IPL 2020 so far and we are sure the teams are going to want to take full advantage.

CSK vs RCB Match Prediction:
We make our predictions after calculating each and every aspect of the match that is why we are the best tipper of IPL. We are going to go with CSK in this match. There are some positive shoots visible in CSK’s cricket and we would like to think they are going to improve further in this match. The batting form of its top-order as well as the performance of its bowlers should give CSK a good chance to win.
RCB has won three out of the five matches it has played while CSK has won just two out of six so far. RCB’s batting is a bit wobbly and too dependent on Kohli and AB. CSK is improving and we think it is moving in the right direction. Bet on the Chennai Super Kings to win. For more and assured free IPL betting tips keep visiting our website throughout the IPL 2020.
