Who Will Win The Match?

Both Chennai Super Kings and Royal Challengers Bangalore are in good form at this early stage of the IPL 2021 as both are very balanced sides. But while CSK have played more matches at Wankhede Stadium (Mumbai) in this IPL season and RCB middle-order batting hasn’t been properly tested yet, CSK are slightly favourite for the upcoming match.
