Bangalore will face Chennai for the second time this season in the Indian T20 League's forty-ninth encounter. Bangalore is presently in fifth place on the season's points standings, with Chennai in ninth place. Bangalore won five games out of ten this season, while Chennai won three out of nine. Read on to find match predictions, MyTeam11 fantasy team tips & team previews.
Bangalore's latest patch has not gone well, as they have already lost three games in a row.
Notably, Virat Kohli recovered to form against Gujarat, scoring a half-century. Virat's performance will strengthen the franchise's confidence while also posing a danger to Chennai.
Consistency would be the most pressing problem for Bangalore. Faf has scored runs on occasion, but not regularly. The middle-order has been inconsistent as well. This season, Glenn Maxwell has seemed pallid.
Chennai has re-appointed MS Dhoni as captain in lieu of Ravindra Jadeja, although they are still a long way from a playoff berth. A win, on the other hand, will keep their slim prospects alive, and they will take heart from the fact that Chennai won their first match in IPL 2022 last month.
This season, Mukesh Chaudhary has been Chennai's best player. The speedster has stepped into Deepak Chahar's large shoes and has taken wickets on a regular basis. With 11 scalps in eight matches, he is the second-highest ranking Chennai bowler in the purple cap.
