The Indian Premier League 2022 has entered its most exciting week as the race for the playoffs has heated up. The Chennai Super Kings will face their southern rivals, Royal Challengers Bangalore, in another exciting match, according to experts. The RCB will take on the CSK in the second chapter of the Southern derby in a desperate attempt to keep their campaign alive.
Despite a stellar start to the latest edition of the tournament, the Challengers have hit an unexpected snag with three straight defeats.
After an abysmal start to the season, the Men in Yellow will be brimming with confidence with their seasoned skipper MS Dhoni back at the helm. On his return as captain, Dhoni eked out a fine win in his first game.
