Preview

It is another double-header Saturday on the cards and Bangalore are taking on Chennai in the second match of the day. Bangalore has won three matches out of five so far. They are coming off a big loss of 59 runs against Delhi. Their batting is over reliant on top four batsmen. Their lower middle order is yet to give any match winning performance and make sure that they don’t lose this momentum from the first matches. With Chris Morris expected to come into the XI, they would like to start winning again. 

On the other side, Chennai could not continue their winning streak in their last game as their middle order exposed once again and failed to get their team over the line. The top order batsmen are doing everything right but their middle order proved to be unable to strike the ball in the last over. They were tactically outplayed by Kolkata in the last ten overs of the game. However, they were good with the ball in the last couple of matches and will be hopeful to continue their good records against Bangalore.
