Chennai vs Bangalore in Indian T20 League

The southern derby as it is often known as, every Chennai vs Bangalore is filled with excitement, great cricket and often some thrilling moments. This is a clash between one of the most consistent teams in the league and probably the team that has underachieved spectacularly over the years. Chennai, under the leadership of MS Dhoni has always been the team to bank upon, whereas on the other hand, Bangalore is the most unpredictable team in the Indian Premier League.

Chennai, the three-time champions, has been reaping the benefits of smart investments and stability in the group throughout the 12 years of the Indian T20 Premier League so far. With the core squad of Suresh Raina, Ravindra Jadeja, Faf du Plessis, Shane Watson, Dwayne Bravo and Dhoni himself being kept intact for years, the franchise has reaped the benefits of having these experienced stalwarts around. The team goes into the new season riding on the experience of this squad once again. While there are many experts predicting that this might be the season where Chennai’s reliance on ageing legs finally backfires, it would be unwise to write these players off.

Meanwhile, Bangalore has undergone a series of changes, with star names constantly underperforming for the team, leaving the duo of skipper Virat Kohli and South African superstar AB de Villiers a lot to do in every season. Another auction of several players being released and new faces being brought in, the management would be hoping to finally end the dominance Chennai holds in this fixture, with a 67% win rate in all games between these two teams.
