The match 19 of the IPL 2021 will be held at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai, played between Chennai Super Kings and Royal Challengers Bangalore. The match will be kicked off on 25th April (Sunday) at 16:00 (GMT+6).
The two form sides come face to face, with Royal Challengers Bangalore trying to make it five wins in a row and Chennai Super Kings looking to win for the fourth time in a row. After close victories in their first two matches, Royal Challengers Bangalore has won two matches in a row by wide margins, defeating Kolkata Knight Riders by 38 runs and Rajasthan Royals by ten wickets. Chennai Super Kings defeated the same two sides in their last two matches, winning by 45 runs against Rajasthan Royals and 18 runs against Kolkata Knight Riders.
Chennai Super Kings will come into this match with a high level of confidence among their players. Faf du Plessis has scored 128 runs in his last two innings, spinners Moeen Ali, Ravindra Jadeja and Deepak Chahar are amongst the wickets, Lungi Ngidi has taken three wickets in his first match, and the all-rounders have all chipped in with performance when needed.
Royal Challengers Bangalore is bouncing around from match to match, registering larger wins along the way. Their openers are now on fire, and when you mix that with the form of Glenn Maxwell and AB de Villiers, you can see why they have such a strong batting lineup.
In this early match, the sky is partly cloudy and the temperature is a scorching 33 Degrees Celsius.
Chennai Super Kings scored 220-3 in their last match in Mumbai, while Royal Challengers Bangalore won by 181 runs from 16.3 overs at the same venue. We expect the batsmen to enjoy the Wankhede Stadium surface once more.
