Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) would be hoping for turning the tide on defending IPL champions Chennai Super Kings (CSK) this time around when the two sides meet at the MCA stadium on Wednesday.
The absence of pace bowler Harshal Patel the last time around the two sides met had probably rocked the RCB boat, as they lost the high-scoring game by 23 runs after conceding a mammoth 216 runs.
But with Patel back in the side, RCB can hope for a turnaround, even as four-time IPL champions CSK will be buoyed by the display of fireworks from openers Ruturaj Gaikwad and New Zealand's Devon Conway in their previous game against Sunrisers Hyderabad, which CSK won by 13 runs.
Gaikwad and Conway had stitched together a record 182-run opening stand, after which Mukesh Choudhary's four-wicket haul sealed a 13-run victory over SRH at the same venue on May 1.
Super Kings and Bangalore have gone head to head 30 times, with CSK taking 20 wins and Bangalore getting nine wins, in addition to a no result.
