IPL 2020, DC vs CSK Team: In the second match of the day, CSK’ campaign is back on track, courtesy MS Dhoni’s smart captaincy but a stiff test awaits Chennai when they face a dominant Delhi today. Every tactic that Dhoni employed against Sunrisers Hyderabad, worked, and they are expected to continue in the same vein as they battle to salvage the season. (DC vs CSK Live Score, Live Updates)

However, they are up against a team which is high on confidence and well-served by the South African pace duo of Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortje, who bowled a 156.2 kmph delivery during his spell against Rajasthan Royals. Add the wily R Ashwin and Axar Patel to the mix and DC has a rather impressive bowling unit.

RCB's Bold Challenge

The Virat Kohli-led RCB has won five of its eight games on the back of all-round performances but seemingly blundered in the eight-wicket defeat to laggards KXIP.

12:44 (IST)17 Oct 2020
Records one may witness today

  • Robin Uthappa needs 6 runs to complete 4500 IPL runs.
  • Jos Buttler requires 5 sixes to complete 50 IPL sixes for RR.
  • Virat Kohli needs 3 fours and 3 sixes respectively to complete 500 fours and 200 sixes in IPL.
  • AB de Villiers needs 3 catches and 46 runs respectively to complete 100 IPL catches and 4000 IPL runs for RCB.

Will Virat Kohli continue his form

The Virat Kohli batting juggernaut continued to roll as the RCB skipper scored a steady 48 against KXIP. The right-hander has close to 290 runs against his name in his last five innings and will once again be someone that RCB will bank on to power the team through.

12:03 (IST)17 Oct 2020
Here's what happened in their last meet

In their last meeting, it was RCB who had come out on top. While RCB will be eager to make it 2-0 against RR in IPL 2020, the Steve Smith-led unit will be itching to level the head-to-head scores and in the process, register their fourth win of the season.
