RCB vs CSK – Paper value
— Chennai Super Kings (@ChennaiIPL) April 20, 2019
Having missed the match against Hyderabad, Chennai Super Kings captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni is highly likely to play tomorrow’s match. Dhoni’s presence has it in it to bring back CSK to winning ways. It is the unmatched value of his aura which will be a considerable threat for the hosts.
There is no hiding to the fact that RCB have looked a better side in their recent matches than they were in the tournament in the initially. Despite them winning their last match, it will be a daunting task for them to sneak a victory past Chennai Super Kings even if veteran batsman AB de Villiers makes a comeback.
Therefore, it wouldn’t be wrong to say that CSK are most likely to win the contest tonight.
