Royal Challengers Banglore:
After that ABD Masterclass in the last game against DD, no change is expected from RCB.
Vohra, QDK, Kohli, ABD, Anderson, Mandeep, Sundar, Woakes, Umesh, Siraj, Chahal.
*Woakes has been expensive in almost every game but still RCB would like to stick with him for a couple of games more as Kohli rates Woakes very highly & also gives them a an extra batting option. Southee can replace him if he fails in the upcoming games.
*No other change is expected as they won the last game & this team looks more balanced but still short on a quality bowler.
Chennai Super Kings:
Tahir is fit & available which will again cause selection headaches for Fleming & co.
Watson, Rayudu, Raina, Dhoni, Billings/Faf, Bravo, Jadeja, Chahar, Karn, Tahir, Thakur.
*Fleming has hinted they are looking to play 2 leggies which almost gives Tahir his place back in the eleven.
*Faf came in for Tahir in the last game. So, one b/w Faf & Billings has to make way for Tahir. Will be difficult for CSK to drop Billings as he has single handedly won them a game.
*Billings is expected to play ahead of Faf but if management prefers Faf’s experience at the top then Rayudu will again play at 4.
*Bhajji can make a comeback anytime but he’ll be used according to the opposition & conditions. For this game, CSK should be backing their spin trio of Tahir, Karn & Jadeja.
