The pitch in Sharjah was a batting paradise to start within IPL 2020. Scores of over even the 200-run mark weren’t deemed safe to defend. As the tournament progressed, the spinners also got a fair amount of assistance. A high-scoring game seems to be on the cards. The Sharjah Cricket Association Stadium provides a neutral wicket where both the departments are expected to receive a decent amount of help from the surface. Spinners can come lethal in the middle overs while pacers will be in the game throughout. Chennai Super Kings (CSK) will be heading into the match with a victory.
Meanwhile, Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) will be heading into the game with a loss in their name. Chennai Super Kings (CSK) will be heading into the match with a victory.

RCB vsCSK: Match Preview
On paper, this is a clash between two top sides who both have had good results in IPL 2021 so far. But, after the first round of matches since IPL 2021 re-started, there appears to be a wider gulf between Chennai Super Kings and Royal Challengers Bangalore than a difference of just two points suggests. Super Kings outdid Mumbai Indians at their own game, seemingly dead and buried but rising, like Undertaker in WWE, to deliver chokeslams and tombstone piledrivers to the defending champions.
Royal Challengers, on the other hand, sank to one of their heaviest defeats against Kolkata Knight Riders. What Royal Challengers missed in their first return game was the runs AB de Villiers and Glenn Maxwell had provided in the India leg of the tournament. The rest of the batting had revolved around the two middle-order powerhouses, but when neither got going, it seemed to leave a big hole in the line-up. However, it was just one game into the re-start, and Virat Kohli did stress that there was no reason for the team to panic.
