The weekend is finally here and the first of the four games features a South-Indian derby as Chennai Super Kings take on Royal Challengers Bangalore. CSK’s weakness has been exposed recently with the team failing to win two of their last three games owing to their poor bowling. MS Dhoni has to find the right balance soon so that a top two finish is ensured to have some room for mistakes. On the other hand, RCB will be looking to continue their winning momentum to keep their top-four hopes alive and the return of AB de Villiers will certainly provide a much required boost to them.
The average first innings score is 195 in the three games played here.
CSK have batted first in all three occasions and have successfully defended the total two times.
MS Dhoni is yet to win a toss at Pune, this season.
Shane Watson has scored 196 runs in 3 innings here, including a century against Rajasthan Royals.

Quinton de Kock will be missing this game as the South African has travelled back home to attend a wedding which might see Parthiv Patel make his first appearance in this season.
Considering the average score at this venue and the state of the bowlers in both the teams, it is safe to go with more batsmen to earn more points today.
If you can afford to take risk, try picking Suresh Raina as your fantasy Captain who might have some chance of scoring and if he scores today, you could end up earning a good money.
