In the 35th match of IPL 2021, Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s team will take on the field against Royal Challengers Bangalore. While CSK had washed out defending champions Mumbai Indians in the last match, Kohli’s army suffered a crushing defeat at the hands of KKR. CSK captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s bat has been silent in the IPL for a long time, but when Mahi comes against Bangalore on the Sharjah ground, he can rain fiercely for fours and sixes. We are not saying this, but their figures are pointing in this direction.
Dhoni has so far scored 825 runs in 28 innings against Kohli’s team in IPL at an average of 41.25. During this, Mahi’s strike rate has also been of 141.50. That is, the captain of CSK likes Bangalore’s bowling attack. Dhoni has scored four half-centuries while playing against RCB and his highest score is 84 runs. Not only this, Captain Cool has made the rail of RCB bowlers by hitting 50 fours and 46 long sixes. In terms of scoring the most runs against Royal Challengers Bangalore, Dhoni is second only to David Warner. If the figures are to be believed, then today Dhoni’s formidable form can be seen after a long time on the ground of Sharjah.
In the first encounter between the two teams this season, Chennai defeated Bangalore by 69 runs. Batting first in this match, CSK scored 191 runs in 20 overs for the loss of 4 wickets in 20 overs thanks to the half-century of Faf du Plessis and the stormy innings of Jadeja. RCB’s batting order, punished by star players in front of the big target, was failing badly and the team could score only 122 runs for the loss of 9 wickets in the stipulated 20 overs. Talking about the points table, Chennai is currently at number two and if the team registers a big win over Bangalore, then Delhi Capitals will snatch the number one chair. On the other hand, Kohli’s army is currently at number three in the points table.
