In the epic battle of the South Indian derby, Chennai Super Kings (CSK) will be up against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in Match 22 of the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 at Dr DY Patil Sports Academy in Mumbai on Tuesday.

The defending champions have had the worst start to the fifteenth season of the cash-rich league as even after four games, they haven’t yet won a single match and are lying at the last spot in the points table. On the other hand, the Challengers, with three wins out of four fixtures, are comfortably sitting at the third spot.

Pitch report:

The surface at DY Patil Academy offers decent support to both seamers and spinners, however, the track gets better as the game progresses, so batting second would be an ideal choice at this venue. Also, since it’s an evening fixture, the dew will play its part as well.

Head-to-Head record:

Played: 27 | CSK won: 18 | RCB won: 09

Probable XIs:

Chennai Super Kings: Ruturaj Gaikwad, Robin Uthappa, Moeen Ali, Ambati Rayudu, Ravindra Jadeja, Shivam Dube, MS Dhoni, Dwayne Bravo, Chris Jordan, Mukesh Choudhary, Maheesh Theeksana/Dwaine Pretorius/Adam Milne

Royal Challengers Bangalore: Faf du Plessis, Anuj Rawat, Virat Kohli, Glenn Maxwell, Dinesh Karthik, Shahbaz Ahmed, David Willey, Wanindu Hasaranga, Siddarth Kaul, Akash Deep, Mohammed Siraj
