Prematch Analysis of CSK VS RCB TATA IPL 2022 – The Chennai Super Kings will face the Royal Challengers Bangalore in an exciting match today at Dr. DY Patil Sports Academy in Navi Mumbai. The team led by Ravindra Jadeja has yet to win in four games this season, and things are only going to get tougher from here.
They included Mahesh Theekshana in the starting XI in the previous game, but he had little impact. A U19 superstar, Rajvardhan Hangargekar, is expected to play in the upcoming match.
Meanwhile, Royal Challengers Bangalore are in an incredible position; they have won three games in a row and have performed admirably in all departments. As a result, they will expect a lot more from their captain, Faf du Plessis, to be destructive. And take a risk on the opposition and go big; they have some of the most destructive finishers in the middle order. As a result, if Josh Hazlewood is available, he could replace Harshal Patel in the playing XI, while Harshal Patel has left the bio-bubble for personal reasons.

The Chennai Super Kings had previously faced SRH at the same venue, so they would have had some experience with the conditions. However, day and night games have different conditions, and the dew factor could play a part in this game. Scores were easily chased down in the last two games played at this venue, and that may be the slogan for the captain who wins the toss.
Moeen Ali: Moeen Ali, a stylish hitter and one of the ball’s finest timings was retained by CSK for INR 8 crore ahead of the Mega Auction in 2022.
In 2021, the English all-rounder appeared in 15 matches, scoring 357 runs and taking 6 wickets.
At the IPL 2021 Player Auction, Chennai Super Kings paid INR 7 crores for Moeen Ali, a dynamic left-handed batter and aggressive off-break bowler.
The left-handed pitcher pitched for RCB for two seasons before being dismissed prior to the league’s 2021 season.
Moeen Ali’s batting skills against spin are exceptional, and his ability to bat at any position allows him to take the game away from the opponent
Chris Jordan: Chris Jordan has been an excellent addition to the CSK side since his yorkers can be quite successful in the death overs, and he can also bowl at high speeds. In his previous game, the England fast bowler gave up 34 runs in three overs, but he has the ability to provide important breakthroughs.
When the captain begins to employ him wisely, the speedster will be more valuable, and he will be eager to perform as well.
Conclusion: RCB is way ahead but CSK will fight back and they will win the match.
