CSK vs BLR Dream11 Prediction: 19th Match, IPL 2021
Chennai Super Kings and Royal Challengers Bangalore will play against each other in the 19th match of IPL 2021 at Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai. We will cover CSK vs BLR Dream11 Prediction, Probable Playing XI, and Fantasy Cricket Tips of IPL 2021.
Chennai Super Kings:
Chennai Super Kings are back to their winning ways putting behind their last year’s performance, and won three consecutive matches and are currently at the 2nd position on the points table with six points. They put up an excellent all-round performance in the last game and won the game by 18 runs.
The opener, Ruturaj, is back to form with a brilliant fifty in the last match, and Faf du Plessis has been scoring consistently from the top but missed his century by just five runs. At No.3, Moeen Ali has been playing aggressively and not letting other batsmen feel the pressure.
In the middle-order, Suresh Raina and Ambati Rayudu have put some decent performances. Sam Curran and Jadeja have also played the roles of finishers very well. In the last match, Dhoni also batted aggressively and scored some quick runs.
The bowlers have done a decent job so far in the tournament but still, need to improve. Deepak Chahar bowled brilliantly in the last match, picking up four wickets and bowling well in the powerplay. Jadeja has also been decent with the ball in the middle overs. Lungi Ngidi also bowled well, picking up three wickets in the last match, and Sam Curran has managed to provide essential breakthroughs so far this season.
Chennai Super Kings have an exceptional batting lineup, but their only concern would be that they don’t have proper death bowling. They need to work on that in the other matches of the season.
Royal Challengers Bangalore:
Royal Challengers Bangalore have been entirely different altogether as they haven’t lost a single match so far and are currently at the top of the points table with eight points. They performed brilliantly in the last game and won the game comfortably ten wickets.
Devdutt Padikkal, after two failures, is back with a bang as he scored a magnificent hundred and won the match for the team along with his skipper Virat Kohli who also batted brilliantly, scoring a fifty.
Glenn Maxwell and AB de Villiers have been in brilliant form so far in this season and providing good stability to the team. The lower middle-order of RCB has not been tested much, so it would be interesting to see how they would react when wickets fall early for them.
The bowling unit, which was considered a drawback for the team in the past season, has become their strength. Mohammad Siraj is bowling very well by controlling the flow of runs and also picked up three wickets in the last match. Harshal Patel has been very consistent with his performance and is also the leading wicket-taker in this season. Sundar, Jamieson, and Richardson also managed to pick up a wicket each in the last match.
Royal Challengers Bangalore is appearing to be one of the strongest contenders for the title this season.

The pitch is tailor-made for batting. We can expect swing and bounce in the initial overs of the match. As the game is in the afternoon, there won’t be any dew issue, so batting first, or chasing won’t have many advantages. As the temperature will be high and the pitch will be dry, spinners might play an important role.

The weather will be mostly cloudy, but there is no chance of rain during the match.
