Abu Dhabi: Mahendra Singh Dhoni's Chennai Super Kings (CSK), who have been consistently disappointing in the IPL 2020, will face Virat Kohli's Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) on Saturday. In this match, everyone's eyes will be on the batsmen of both the teams. In CSK, all-rounder Kedar Jadhav may be cut off, who failed to make the team win against KKR.
Chennai had to face defeat by ten runs after coming very close to victory and Jadhav's defensive batting was also severely criticized. Now it remains to be seen whether CSK, who was generally hesitant to make changes, bets on Jadhav or anyone else gets a chance. Chennai's middle-order remains a cause for concern even after Shane Watson returning to form and Faf du Plessis's consistent performances. Captain Dhoni himself is not in the form for which he is famous. Rituraj Gaikwad or N Jagadishan, who have not got a chance since 2018, can be excluded if Jadhav is dropped.
CSK bowlers have performed brilliantly in the last match against KKR. All-rounder Dwayne Bravo has taken wickets. Karn Sharma, who joined the team in place of Piyush Chawla, also took wickets. Pacer Deepak Chahar, Sam Curran, and Shardul Thakur have also done well. It remains to be seen whether Chennai will improve their performance in this match or whether Kohli Brigade wins this match.
