Bengaluru, April 22: Australia's World Cup winner Mitchell Starc's arrival has boosted Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) as they face two-time champions Chennai Super Kings (CSK) here tonight in Match 20 of Indian Premier League 2015 (IPL 8).
Starc who missed the start of IPL 8 due to a knee problem, is set to play today. RCB's struggling bowling attack will look for Starc to inspire them. (What is a Super Over?)
There are many individual contests to look forward to, at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium. Chris Gayle Vs Ashish Nehra, Brendon McCullum and Dwayne Smith Vs Starc and the battle of finishers between CSK captain MS Dhoni and AB de Villiers.
And apart from these, it will be India's Test skipper Virat Kohli against ODI/Twenty20 leader Dhoni. Whose captaincy will triumph?
It should be an exciting clash. There is very little to choose from, despite the home team stuck to the bottom of the points table.
