Chennai Super Kings have won the toss and elected to field first against RCB in their IPL match played in Pune on Saturday.
The Virat-Kohli led RCB, who edged out Mumbai Indians by 14 runs in their last game, will be eager to avenge their five-wicket defeat at home against the Mahendra Singh Dhoni-led Super Kings, who too will be keen to swiftly get back into the winning mode after suffering two defeats in their last three games.
For the star-studded RCB, the clash is a must-win encounter if it has to stay alive in the tournament and qualify for the play-offs.
The yellow brigade seems to have settled down well in its adopted home and has lost only to the Mumbai Indians, in Pune, after shifting base after their first game in Chennai.
But that comprehensive eight-wicket defeat against Mumbai Indians on April 28 followed by the six-wicket hammering by the Kolkata Knight Riders last night has shown chinks in the CSK armour, especially in bowling.
