Match and Pitch Condition

Weather: Clear weather with the maximum temperature expected around 28° during the match.

Pitch Condition: The M.Chinnaswamy pitch has been on slower side in this season of IPL so another average scoring match can be expected with spinners doing the bulk of the job. The last four innings scores on this ground read as 157-8 (20 over), 142-9 (20), 142-5 (20)and 145-6 (18.5).

Spinners are expected to play a big role in the outcome of the match.


Probable Playing XI: (In the Batting order)

Royal Challengers Bangalore: Mandeep Singh, Virat Kohli (c), AB de Villiers, Shane Watson, Kedar Jadhav(wk), Stuart Binny, Pawan Negi, Sreenath Aravind, Tymal Mills, Yuzvendra Chahal, Samuel Badree.

Rising Pune Supergiant: Ajinkya Rahane, Rahul Tripathi, Steven Smith(c), Ben Stokes, Manoj Tiwary, MS Dhoni(wk), Ankit Sharma, Lockie Ferguson, Rahul Chahar, Shardul Thakur, Imran Tahir.

Possible Changes

Royal Challengers Bangalore: 

  • RCB might bring in extra batsman (Sachin Baby or Vishnu Vinod) in place of Pawan Negi to strengthen their batting.
  • Also, Travis Head can be picked in playing XI instead of Shane Watson as his off-spin can be helpful under these conditions.

Rising Pune Supergiant:

  • They might need to review their 3rd spin option in Ankit Sharma, Washington Sundar or Saurabh Kumar. Or they can add a batsman such as Baba Aparajith who can chip in some overs with his off-spin.
