The Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 fans will be treated with a mouthwatering game between Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and Chennai Super Kings (CSK) at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium today, September 24. RCB come into the match after a crushing loss to Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) by 9 wickets. The Virat Kohli-led side was shot out for just 92. The team will be keen to make a statement in tonight’s game. Meanwhile, CSK emerged victorious over Mumbai Indians (MI) by 20 runs.
Former India cricketer Aakash Chopra has made his predictions for the crucial game. Chopra feels the match is expected to be a high scoring game. Sharjah is a high scoring ground due to its short boundaries. Chopra feels that more than 10 sixes will hit during the match. “10 plus sixes in the match,” Chopra was quoted as saying on his YouTube channel.
Chopra also said that more than 90 runs will be scored in the powerplay. “Powerplay overs to produce 90 plus runs,” Chopra said. Scoring at 10 runs per over may not be all that tough at a venue like Sharjah.
Finally, the cricketer turned expert backed MS Dhoni’s CSK to pip RCB. CSK have enjoyed a decent run in the IPL 2021 and have won six of their eight games. They also defeated RCB in their last meet. However, one thing that goes against them is their record at this venue. CSK lost all the three matches they played at Sharjah in the 2020 season.
