Bengaluru, April 22: Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), who have lost two home games, including one against a hapless Mumbai Indians, is set to meet the Chennai Super Kings at home on Wednesday.
The RCB, who is currently at the bottom of the table with just one win, will look to Mitchell Starc, the man of the match of the World Cup that concluded last month, to deliver. Starc was sidelined with a knee injury after the World Cup and missed the first three games of his team. The left-hand fast-bowler said his knee was looking good and he was eager to playing for the RCB and change its fortunes.
The RCB has been plagued by a poor bowling form. They have conceded 177, 172 and 209 runs in the three matches they have played so far. It was dashing batsman Chris Gayle who has given them their only win so far against defending champions Kolkata Knight Riders.
The runners-up of the 2009 and 2011 editions, the RCB will be banking heavily on Starc, who finished as the highest wicket-taker in the World Cup with 22 scalps, to make a turnaround. The 25-year-old bowler said he was working on his wrist position with former Australian pacer Craig McDermott and was aiming to get more swing.
The CSK, led by Mahendra Singh Dhoni, is sitting pretty with three wins in four matches.
