Royal Challengers Bangalore will face Rajasthan Royals in their next match at Mouloudia Algiers Stadium in Pune. The Faf du Plessis canceled the match outright after all for only 68 in their previous game against SRH and there wasn't much they could have done with the total. Anuj Rawat was inconsistent at the top of the order and might be tempted to bring in Mahipal Lamarr, which is not a bad choice given that Virat Kohli is moving up the rankings.
On the other hand, Rajasthan Royals played close matches in their last two matches and Jos Butler was a standout player at the top of the standings. It looked as if bowling had stopped running in the last two games, but he would have lost a lot in bowling, which was a success for the team in the last two games. They may look to replace Obed McCoy with Navdeep Saini or Kuldeep Sen.

Venue: MCA Stadium, Pune.
Date & Time: April 26, 7:30 PM IST
It's been a long time since the last match between CSK and GT was played at MCA Stadium. Any result above 170 would be difficult for a team that hits second, although the captain who wins the toss may be tempted to throw first, considering the splash factor.

Probable Top Performers
The probable best batter of the Match: Jos Buttler
With the kind of form he has, Joss Butler will be looking forward to playing another winning role for his team. The right bat player has already scored three centuries this season and is somewhat undefeated in the tournament so far. He's regained pace after a slow start in the last game and RR is hoping to stay in the crimp for a long time.
Probable best bowler of the Match: Yuzvendra Chahal
Yuzvendra Chahal set up a bowling master class in the previous game when the ball was relatively wet and players found it difficult to catch. Leggi continued her impressive level and went to 1 for 28 in a 4-over period in a high-scoring match. He is also the current 'Purple Cap' titleholder with 18 wickets to his name in seven matches.
