RCB Playing XI vs CSKWill Dinesh Karthik play? If Dinesh Karthik is ruled out, Anuj Rawat is likely to come in and will handle the keeping duties. But it is his batting position that will change. Rawat opened with Faf du Plessis. However, with the team backing Virat Kohli to open, Rawat fell out of favour.

He can be slotted in at No 3 but that will mean Rajat Patidar dropping down to No 4 and Glenn Maxwell at No 5. Shahbaz Ahmed will have to play the finisher’s role in DK’s absence.

Why RCB vs CSK will be a virtual knockout?

  • RCB with 10 points from as many games are placed at 5th spot.
  • RCB have just 4 matches remaining and as things stand, 18 points is the cut-off for playoffs.
  • RCB have a negative Net Run Rate of -558 and that could be the deterrent in their playoff hopes.
  • For CSK, the situation is even more difficult. Even if they win all five games, they will not be guaranteed a playoff spot.
  • But a loss will surely end their hopes as they will reach a maximum of 14.
  • CSK are placed 9th with 6 points from nine games.
